Newly bald, Matt Damon is jealous of Jake Gyllenhaal’s head… weird.
At the New York premiere of his new movie, Contagion, the actor professed his love for Gyllenhaal’s scalp saying, “Wow, I try not to envy, but I have to say Jake’s got a damn good-looking head. He sure does have a beautiful round head.”
“Normally you say, ‘That’s a beautiful head of hair, but that’s a beautiful head he’s got,’ ” Damon adds. “Gyllenhaal definitely gets the blue ribbon for the best bald head over me.”
Matt loves his new shaved head saying, “It’s really liberating, I get out of the shower and just run the towel over my head and I’m done. But the only problem for me was during the summer time. I had to remember to put on sunscreen. I’m not used to that. A friend of mine who is bald told me you only make that mistake once. He was right about that.”
The thought of a peeling, sunburned head grosses me out.
Luckily for Damon, his wife, Luciana, likes her husband’s new look and still thinks he’s handsome.
When asked about it the actor said, “Thank God she does, but you know she had to take a whole vow, for better or for worse, so she’s kind of stuck with me!”
Here’s the question:
Who’s got the better head, Jake or Matt?
