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?

It’s Matt Damon. Does the color of his hair really matter?

I like grey hair on him. I just don’t like that particular picture which is unflattering to me.

He turned 42 on the 8th of October and, regardless of hair color, looks fab! Personally, I’ve always wanted gray hair. At 38 I have a few, but no one but me notices them. I was sorely tempted to follow suit when Kelly Osbourne colored her hair gray (even if it turn out old lady lavender) but didn’t want to have to maintain it. With naturally dark brown hair the roots are glaringly obvious within a week.
I think I’ll ask my 18-year-old daughter to find ways to scare me gray instead. “Mom, I got a tattoo!” “I’m pregnant!” And the good old standby of hiding around a corner then jumping out and screaming BOO!

That pretty much sums it up. Women are to blame for everything. Can’t we take back their rights?

I’ve always found this guy very unattractive and while in this interview he seems nice enough, he is often very arrogant and full of himself in others. His success has gone to his head bigtime.

@sonia
His wife is actually from Argentina and happens to be drop dead beautiful. And since you seem to lack education, Argentina is an entirely different country from Mexico. Check out that little thing we like to call a map.

My husband is in his 30′s with greying hair oh and balding on the top lol He often tells our kids that it’s their fault with a big smile on his face. They think it’s hysterical!
As long as he’s a great Dad I wouldn’t care what color hair he has!

Jillian on
