Matt Damon's Bald Head Is 'Great in the Summertime'

Posted on

His wife may call him “Red Alert,” but there’s another nickname Matt Damon might not seem to mind these days: baldy. After debuting a hairless head in Vancouver last month, the actor told reporters this weekend that he’s enjoying his new look.

“It’s for a movie I’m doing,” he said Saturday at the Contagion press junket in Los Angeles, adding that this wasn’t his first time sporting a bald head for a role. “I did shave my head once [before], when I did The Brothers Grimm. I had a wig and it made it easier to get the wig on.”

Though the haircut was required, Damon said he’s not missing his long locks. “I love it. I see why these guys rock it,” he said, referencing costar Laurence Fishburne, director Steven Soderbergh and writer Scott Z. Burns, who joined him at the junket — with similar hairstyles.

But the benefits of Damon’s hairlessness go beyond vanity: the look saves time, too! “It’s great in the summertime,” he added. “It’s really easy getting out of the shower.”
