Matthew McConaughey Shaves His Head!

Matthew McConaughey Hair
London Entertainment/Splash News Online

Matthew McConaughey stepped out in Beverly Hills on Tuesday sporting a T-shirt, baseball cap — and totally bald head! Though he concealed his shiny scalp underneath his j.k. livin hat, it was quite obvious the star had shaved off all of his golden curls — but the smile on his face said he didn’t seem to care.

On Saturday, McConaughey was spotted on the Los Angeles set of his latest film, Thunder Run, with a full head of hair — so why the change? It’s the first time he’s made a major modification to his luscious locks since 2008, when he debuted a super-short buzz cut.

Obviously McConaughey, one of PEOPLE’s former Sexiest Men Alive, can do no wrong, but personally, we’re going to miss those cute curls. Tell us: What do you think of the actor’s new look?

well if he is filming a movie then it must be for his role

Jill K on

Oh my gosh! Why?!

Jo on

He’s still smokin’ hot!!!

lisa on

Why ask if we like it, when we can’t see it? All I can see is a hat obviously covering his scalp with him looking sideways. Give us a better shot. But, I bet he looks just dandy. Bald men are sexy.

Nice!! on

He looks great – as always!! Remember him in Reign of Fire, he shaved his head for that movie too. He is gorgeous!!!

tillie on

Now he’s even uglier

Ashlee on

Yeah, a little cancer patient-ish looking.

sunny on

He’s just not wearing his wig.

carol doyon on

i cannot beleive that some woman find this guy sexy!!!????he’s got vey bad shoulders,neck too long and face to long,mathematically his face is out of wack…for the lenth of his face his eyes and nose are way to high,the only positive is that his body is tone…thank god he married a beauty,it will save his children…this guy is so overated…please…

Tina on

omg! he’s so fine!!!!!!!!!!!!

roro on

For those who don’t think he is good looking, you need to look at the Dolce and Gabbana commercial. I never really thought he was good looking until I saw that. Now him trying the bald thing isn’t really his thing. I liked the rugged hair better and it was more his style.

DJo on

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

librababe on

if he don’t care, i don’t … short hair don’t care ^_^

Bec on

Still looks good to me! ;)

Matthew Fan 4ever on

He is handsome no matter what BUT that gorgeous head of hair will be missed!

Michele on

He’s VERY overrated and there is nothing sexy or good looking about him, in fact he looks like he could use a shower….

Lisa on

He could seriously dye his hair any color… cut it like a mullet… shave it… not wash it… dreads… it don’t matter to me.
He is ALWAYS FINE in my book. Mmmmmm.

Maria on

He looks like a drill sergeant now.

Dawn on

Never did like him, he shows too much that he “thinks he’s all that”. Not an attractive trait at all!

marata on

matt is handsome and I wish him well. I guess we can put anyone down but how does that help us?

Andre on

He looks good and younger….I like it.. Keep it.

lisa on

@carol doyon

I do agree with what you said. I said bald men are sexy, not necessarily Matthew. I have always thought he was a cute kid actor, same with Sara Jessica Parker…in fact, they remind me of each other in their structure (and she was cute when she was younger). I do think he has a sexy physique and a great smile and accent, but not that handsome of a face (not that I would chase him out of bed for eating crackers, I might add).

Lala on

They need to cut their son’s hair. It’s just not cute…

Liz on

Maybe he’s coming to grips with the fact that he’s actually bald? Go back and look at his bongos mugshot from 1999. He was sooo balding (badly). Then, around the time he had a cameo on “Sex & The City.” (in which they wouldn’t show shots of his head from close-up…very strange…, he comes back with this thick head of hair. He either wears a piece all the time or he’s had plugs. He claimed it was some shampoo (in People’s Sexiest Man Alive issue), but there’s no shampoo in the world that gives your hair back.

Lizzy on

Eww…
I agree, if he is doing this for a movie role then so be it, but it doesn’t suit him.
His best look for me has been the Wedding Planner and How to lose a Guy in 10 Days look, where is hair is shorter and curlier but lighter also.
He was hotter than…

jsp81355 on

He is so damn handsome anyway that it doesn’t really matter how he wears his hair! Hair today -gone tomorrow.

Lizzie on

I’m sure he’s handsome hair or sans hair!! Matthew’s Fam IS beautiful!! BLESS THEM!!

ava on

i see nothing good looking aboutthis womanizer

stacey on

MMMMMMMMMMMM, he looks very good to me!!!

Deb on

Have you seen his Dolce and Gabbana commercial? He is extremely HOT, HOT, HOT in that.

Lori on

All that money wasted on his hair transplant!

Drago Harley on

Matthew McConnaHEYGIRL has been losing his hair for years. He might have gotten a new round of transplants done and saved it so that when they are growing back they would look better. A long time ago, he talked about this product he was using that was like industrial strength Rogaine — called Rejuvenex or something like that. I think he has these really expensive hair pieces that get weaved onto his scalp but after a while they have to be removed and cleaned and everything. Maybe that’s what he’s doing now too. He’s in between weavings.

Michele on

Nothing could mess up his sexy look. I think he still looks great!

Kat on

He looks older. He’s a pothead though :)

Annie on

Why Matthew why?

I hate the bald head, but I know Matthew has struggled with thinning hair for years. He probably got tired of trying to cover that up. I guess it has worked for Bruce Willis.

Fredrick on

He has been wearing a hairpiece for years…

Vanessa on

A man who shaves his head does himself NO favor! Women like to feel hair on their man. Also- it always makes his nose look HUGE! (never noticed that when he had hair)

Jataka Buddha on

Go phuck yourselves.

PAPilot on

He was bald in Reign of Fire when he played the reckless US Marine fighting dragons in post-apocalyptic England.

Menna on

GRS62 on

Come on, hasn’t anyone noticed the receding hairline for the last several years? Just because he’s a hunk and he spends all his free time getting stoned and naked with his buddies doesn’t mean he’s going to continue the comb-over (or curl-over in this case), like Trump. Better to face the inevitable and start from scratch.

Adam on

For the record, he has been bald for years. He actually wears a ‘hair system’ to cover it up. It’s a documented fact and plenty of solid evidence if you search around. Nothing against him as I think he’s great but credit is deserved where credit is due and his hair is not real. What you are seeing in this picture is his true hair.

Daryl on

Who wants stuff growing out of their head?

christine on

Who cares! what is it with people, believe it or not, but they are people too, just with social status.
