8 Male Celebrities Who Make Ponytails Look Sexy
Matt Damon is taking his best friend's divorce rather well. Or it looks like he is, anyway.
The 44-year-old star floored everyone by rocking his first "man pony" on Thursday at a press event in Beijing for his new film, The Great Wall. In Zhang Yimou's sci-fi blockbuster, which also stars Chinese superstar Andy Lau, Damon plays a mercenary searching for treasure (and some good conditioner?).
The new look came as a surprise, considering we are used to seeing the Bourne star looking so clean cut. Though, if you remember, he did have a shaggier 'do when he started out as a wrong-side-of-the-tracks genius in his 1997 Oscar-winning drama, Good Will Hunting.
"You know, and I fought for that hair. That is so my fault. For whatever weird reason at that age, I loved that haircut," he told Vulture in 2012. "Gus was like, 'Really?' Ben was like, 'Really?' If you look at Ben's hair in that movie, it's totally acceptable by today's standards, but no, I wanted the frosted f---in' hair. I don't know what my problem was. I looked like I should be singing backup for ColoUr Me Badd."
Now he looks more like Willie Nelson's opener. We like it! And to celebrate Damon's lush locks, we look at 9 other male stars who have rocked the man pony.
