That you Chris Hemsworth?! Matt Damon is sporting a ponytail like the Thor actor and we’re not complaining.

The Oscar winner, 44, debuted his new look at a press conference for his upcoming flick The Great Wall on Thursday, July 2, in China and looked hotter than ever.

Clad in blue jeans and a plaid button-down, the Good Will Hunting star grinned from ear to ear, confidently rocking his new long locks which he kept secured with a hair elastic like a true man.

The Great Wall, a mystery thriller, is set around the historic Chinese edifice and reportedly cost $150 million to make, including the elaborate construction of a faux Great Wall. Damon’s lush locks, which took the Internet by storm, were seemingly grown out for his role in the 2016 film.

Ben Affleck’s BFF’s ponytail even has it’s own Twitter account now. “@BenAffleck will you braid me? #mattdamon #mattdamonsponytail #bronytail,” the account tweeted yesterday, while replying to multiple fans' tweets.

More importantly, as fan pointed out: “I wonder what he’d look like with a top knot. Probably fantastic.”
