Matt Damon Shows Off Ponytail at a Press Conference in China

Matt Damon was recently doing a press conference in China and he had a Chris Hemsworth style pony tail. Onlookers said that he looked chic and hip with it.

Fox News reported that the 44-year-old Oscar winner was seen with his ponytail first on Thursday when he was out and about in Beijing, China for a press conference about his latest film “The Great Wall.” Fox News also reported that he was holding a big mic flag at the conference.


Fans have most often seen the celebrated actor with a clean cut. He is occassionally seen with a buzzed cut. But a pony tail is somewhat new for the actor and he carried it off pretty nicely. Matt Damon also seemed comfortable sporting the new hairdo, as was evident from his mojo and the high spirits he was in at the event.

Fox News slyly suggested that this look was perfect as the post-breakup hairstyle for his best friend, Ben Affleck, and maybe he could suggest it to him to help him get over his grieving. Matt Damon has been best friends with Ben Affleck since beginningless time and this dig was a perfect joke.

Press speculated the various reasons for the change to the new hairdo. It was unclear if Matt Damon grew out his hair for the movie he was doing the press conference for, or if he was just trying out the new hairdo to fit in with the surfers swarming the beaches this summer.

As for the movie the press conference was for, it won’t be out until November 2016. The movie, “The Great Wall,” will also star Andy Lau, Jing Tian and Pedro Pascal, and will be directed by Zhang Yimou. Sources say that the film is about the myths built around the construction of the Great Wall of China. Fans would obviously be waiting for the next movie from the actor of the “Bourne Supremacy.”
