Matthew from 'Downton Abbey' ditches the blond hair

Recent photos of Stevens show darker hair, a slimmer face and some very non-"Downton" facial scruffiness.

Wow, he looks unrecognizable. Photos:

IN other words his agent told him to lose the turkey neck and that one Carey Elwes in Hollywood is more than enough.

He looks like crap, but he looked like crap in "Downton Abbey" too. I've never seen someone age as quickly and poorly as this man - compare his appearance in "The Line of Beauty" to "Downton Abbey" (and now) o see what I mean.

He's cute. You people need help.

I think he looks good...

He has great hair and great eyes ...

He's way better having lost weight and gone darker. I couldn't see what all the fuss was before. Now he's perfectly reasonable.

I sorta liked carbfaced Matthew.

He looks great with the new hair colour.

Much more fuckable now. Call me, Dan.

by Anonymousreply 903/16/2013

Huge improvement. I assume this is his natural color.

by Anonymousreply 1003/16/2013

He looks better because he lost weight, not because he dyed his hair.

by Anonymousreply 1103/16/2013

He looks good in both of them, but he looks gayer in the "after" picture . . .

So . . .

I voted for the second pic.

Looks to me that he might have had a small chin implant. Not just weight loss IMO.

by Anonymousreply 1303/16/2013

Looks great! He must have been reading Datalounge.

Agree that he had some surgical intervention beyond losing weight. Looks like neck lipo, which was badly needed.

Calling Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon.. come in Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon...

He's definitely lost some weight - he almost had Matthew Broderick's body when he was in THE HEIRESS - but with the dark hair he looks like any number of brooding Brit actors, and that color heightens the pasty white color of his skin.

Love the darker hair. Love the scruff.

Not happy about him losing the weight in his face at all.

by Anonymousreply 1603/16/2013

Now that he's had the surgical jaw line improvement I'd love to see him with the blonde hair but also some scruff.

He was chubby in The Heiress which just closed on Broadway a month ago. How can one lose that much weight that fast?

by Anonymousreply 1703/16/2013

I could take or leave the carbface or gaunter look in the more recent picture but I am a sucker for the dark hair/blue eyes contrast.

One thing about the thinner face though is that it makes his earlobes look fat.

by Anonymousreply 1803/16/2013

He looks way hotter with darker hair.

by Anonymousreply 1903/16/2013

He had a beautiful face and hair in "The Line of Beauty" but what a disappointment when his pale, lumpy body was on display.

I never thought he looked good on "Abbey" either.

Maybe he's just prone to weight gain.

by Anonymousreply 2003/16/2013

He is his own evil twin!

by Anonymousreply 2103/16/2013

I'd still hit. It.

by Anonymousreply 2203/16/2013

His fuckability has increased at least two-fold.

by Anonymousreply 2303/16/2013

He definitely had liposuction on his neck-to-chin.

I'd have to look at his face in profile to determine if his chin had an implant.

by Anonymousreply 2403/16/2013

Maybe he just lost weight.

by Anonymousreply 2503/16/2013

Which hair color do you think is natural?

If he's a brunette, he was a "bottle blond" in Downton Abbey.

by Anonymousreply 2603/16/2013

He has a very unfortunate mouth. It curves down when it should curve up.

by Anonymousreply 2703/16/2013

How can anyone prefer the dark hair picture? It looks so unnatural. His eyebrows and scruff are light brown.

by Anonymousreply 2803/16/2013

I wonder if it's just a great key light in that 2nd photo.

That's the overhead light that all the Holywood divas like Crawford and Dietrich insisted on to give them a proper jaw line and erase the lines from under their eyes.

They got so familiar with it that they could tell just by the heat of the lamp on their face if it was hitting them on the proper spot.

by Anonymousreply 2903/16/2013

And here I was fantasizing about a thick blond bush down there; those eyebrows gave me a sense I was right. I still hope he's bushy.

Dan Stevens should become even blonder, wear makeup and full drag.

I'd even drive on the left side of the street to give him a ride in my van.

by Anonymousreply 3103/18/2013

Like him better as a blond or not, the guy's got the gear. Like Edward Albee, he's adopted, I wonder who the real parents are; do they know of the child's success? Stevens was sent to public school, finished at Cambridge, almost got a first. He has done a lot of theatre in England. Met him in January during the run of the play. When I got over my wanting to throw him down on the floor and lick him all over, he turned out a good guy. He is GLAD-friendly, a good thing. No sun-tanned blond he, au naturale he'd look like many dark English from up north, no matter probable Croyden roots.

by Anonymousreply 3203/18/2013

He looks better in the second picture, but would look better still if he had kept the blond hair.

So does his dick.

by Anonymousreply 3403/18/2013

He looks better now that he's lost some weight, although I'm not a fan of his new hair. It doesn't suit his face at all.

by Anonymousreply 3503/18/2013

I prefer the blond hair but the jawline is an improvement. Now if only Chris O'Donnell would get the memo.

by Anonymousreply 3603/18/2013

He's changed everything except the eyes! He was blonde or light haired in his previous roles, so maybe he is aiming to get some villain roles in some new action flicks? They always cast the Brits as the bad guys ...

Its certainly a contrast from his Li'ne of Beauty' days.

He looks like the love child of Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Damian Lewis in this one:
