Matt Dillon is officially a silver fox.

The 60-year-old actor embraced his gray hair on the Cannes red carpet on Wednesday, May 22, for the photocall for his film Being Maria. He kept it casual in dark jeans, a navy T-shirt, navy blazer and black sneakers, his salt-and-pepper locks standing out as the star of the show.

Dillon also rocked a bit of stubble and a trimmed mustache.

On Tuesday, May 21, Dillon appeared at the premiere of Marcello Mio, where he opted for a more formal ensemble — a navy tuxedo complete with a bow tie.

Being Maria is a biographical drama about French actress Maria Schneider, portrayed by Anamaria Vartolomei. The film dramatizes Schneider’s experience in the 1972 film The Last Tango in Paris, which faced backlash for its graphic sexual content. Dillon plays Marlon Brando, who starred opposite Schneider in the erotic romance.

“Maria is a young, struggling actress with promise,” reads the synopsis on Cannes’ official website. “When an emerging Italian director casts her to headline a new film alongside an American superstar, her dreams are coming true. But what seems like a big breakthrough turns out to be the start of a living hell. That movie is THE LAST TANGO IN PARIS. The actress is Maria Schneider.”

Dillon recently attended a performance of The Outsiders on Broadway, a musical adaptation of S. E. Hinton's beloved 1967 coming-of-age novel of the same name. The actor starred as Dallas "Dally" Winston in the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola-directed film adaptation of The Outsiders, alongside C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise and Diane Lane.

"Viv reminds me of my mother in that she isn’t focused on being the center of attention but in being a support to other creatives," Jolie said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE. "She’s very thoughtful and serious about theatre and working hard to best understand how to contribute."
