Matt Smith has shown off his newly shaven head and a childhood scar on the set of Ryan Gosling's new film, How To Catch A Monster.
The Doctor Who star has lost his signature floppy hair, revealing the scar - and his shirt - as he was spotted chatting to the first-time director in Detroit, Michigan, reported Just Jared.
The 30-year-old, best known for playing the 11th incarnation of the Time Lord on the BBC sci-fi series, admitted he got the mark in a nursery accident when he was little.
"[My earliest memory is of] getting my head cracked open at playschool when I was three. I was on a pirate swing and I fell under it and it sliced into my head. I had 24 stitches," he told the Guardian Weekend.
Matt is starring in Ryan's directorial debut alongside Saoirse Ronan and Christina Hendricks, which starts filming this week.
Ryan's girlfriend Eva Mendes also has a part in the fantasy noir film, which is about a single mother (played by Christina) swept into a dark underworld while her teenage son discovers a road leading to a secret underwater town.
How To Catch A Monster, which was also written by the Gangster Squad star, has been bought by Warner Bros, according to Deadline.
