Matt's Ponytail Taught Him An Important Lesson

In his recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Matt Damon revealed that wearing a ponytail gave him an appreciation for women, most especially his wife and four daughters. Last July, the actor debuted his ponytail in China during a press conference for his upcoming film The Great Wall. The look sparked much excitement among his fans on social media, something that he explained took a great deal of work putting on and wearing for months.

"There are 700 hair extensions, it was a full day to put them in," Damon said. "And then I had to manage it. I have a whole new appreciation for my wife and daughters — it’s very hard to do." The actor also was teased by Norton (to fellow guest Jessica Chastain's delight) about how the Twitter-verse reacted to Damon's ponytail. The host even shared a couple of tweets from fans about the Oscar winner's long hair, including: "Matt Damon has a ponytail and if he ever puts it in a top knot, I think my ovaries might explode."

To which Damon fervently shook his head and promised that he would never be caught sporting a man bun.
