Matt Damon: I Blame My Gray Hair on My Daughters

When Matt Damon looks in the mirror these days, he knows exactly who’s responsible for his changing appearance.

“I point out all of the gray and I say to my daughters, ‘You did this and you did this and you did this,’” the father of four joked to PEOPLE Tuesday during a dinner for Argo hosted by the Peggy Siegal Company at Porter House steakhouse in New York. “They really think it’s funny.”

Damon doesn’t mind it, though — even if the studios do. “They dyed the gray out for We Bought a Zoo, but I was like, ‘I like my gray hair,’” he said. “I’m proud of it.”

Now sporting a buzz cut for an upcoming role, Damon will have to weather the N.Y.C. winter clean-shaven. But “it’s okay,” he said. “I’ve got a beanie.” Tell us: Do you like Damon best blond, graying or bald?

I would not care if he were bald. He is an attractive, intelligent, talented man who appears grounded in common sense and good ethics. He is still close friends with his old friends from before he got famous. What is there to not like?

who cares. Maybe your hair is going grey because your conscience knows this country is going down hill. Not everybody can afford to be a liberal. Mr Damon.
