Matt Damon both stunned and delighted onlookers with a brand new look at the press conference in China about his new movie The Great Wall.
Forty-four-year-old Damon decided to wear a ponytail with his grown out locks Thursday when he appeared in a press conference in Beijing relating to his latest movie The Great Wall.
Fox News says that it is unclear whether he grew his hair out for a new role, or maybe for his part in The Great Wall itself. Maybe he simply wanted a new look, but Matt certainly looked good after having been seen as a clear cut, short-haired guy since, well, forever. “Vive la différence,” as they say in the classics.

Meanwhile speaking about his new movie, The Great Wall, it is a thriller, reportedly centered around a mystery involving the construction of the Great Wall of China. The film also stars Andy Lau, Jing Tian and Pedro Pascal and is directed by Zhang Yimou.
While Matt is sporting his new ponytail look at the press conference in Beijing, fans in the U.S. will have to be patient. According to the Irish Mirror, the new Matt Damon thriller won’t be in the theaters until November 2016.
OK, ladies, your reactions to his new look, please. Hot, sexy or what?
Speaking of the Great Wall of China itself, it’s possible that proceeds from the new movie will head towards replacing and fixing the ancient structure. According to a report on the Inquisitr one-third of the UNESCO Heritage Site has been either eroded away or stolen.
