Matt Damon showed up to the Beijing press conference of his new movie “The Great Wall” with a dramatically different look. Not only does he have a little bit of scruff on his face, but Damon is rocking a ponytail.

It’s not clear why he’s grown his hair out, though chances are it’s for a new role. Damon is set to return to his role as Jason Bourne in another “Bourne” movie that will release in 2016. Perhaps Bourne just doesn’t have time for a haircut in the new film.

Whatever the reason for the look, the internet was beside itself when the pictures of Damon and his ponytail appeared. In no time at all, Twitter came alive with shocked reactions, compliments, insults and, of course, plenty of jokes.

What do you think of Damon’s new hairstyle? Does he make it work or should he chop it off as soon as possible? Sound off in the poll below.
