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?

No one likes grey hair. You just have to say that once you get it!

Everyone should have gray, white, or silver hair. Those are the prettiest hues.

Everyone should not, however, have four children. In fact, no one should. Does his oldest spend any time with her first dad? That man must feel really inferior and left out.

The person who says no one likes grey hair hasn’t met me. I LOVE grey hair; I turn and follow it when I see it. YUM!

Hey White, you need to get a damn life and quit judging others. You sound like a fool.

White seems like a stalker

I think the grey makes him look odd, because he doesn’t really look that old in his face, but the grey makes him look older than his years. But, he is famous for his acting, not his hair…so who cares? That’s what hair dye is for. :)
