Bruce Jenner debuted a ponytail on Nov 11 and he took the time to explain the inspiration behind his hairstyle.


The former Olympian, 64, arrived wearing a grey suit and black tie at the All Sports Film Festival closing ceremony in North Hollywood, Calif.

While his slick ponytail set tongues wagging, Jenner was evidently proud of his hairstyle. He revealed that he is growing his hair because he is happy that he does not suffer from hair loss despite his mature age.

"I turned 64 two weeks ago and...I still have hair to grow!" Jenner told Us magazine. "I'm celebrating, yeah!"

Jenner's reality TV star daughters Kendall and Kylie along with his son Brandon were present at the Hollywood event to witness their father being presented with the Legendary Athlete Award. He explained that his daughters are not too fond of his long mane.

"It's driving them all crazy! It's absolutely wonderful," he joked.

Brandon, who is often seen on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," expressed support for his father's hairstyle.

"I do like it. I want him to be able to grow his hair and do whatever he wants to do," Brandon said about Jenner adding "Full support."

The estranged husband of Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, revealed that despite their separation, they are still on good terms. Kris, 58, was also in attendance to personally present Jenner with the Legendary Athlete Award at North Hollywood's El Portal Theatre.

"I see her everyday. We are doing absolutely great," he said.

Jenner moved out of the family home in Calabasas in the wake of separation reports earlier this year. He is now living alone in Malibu where he is much happier.

"I was actually over at [Kris'] house today and there were like 20 people over at the house and I'm thinking, 'I've got a nice quiet and peaceful place in Malibu, but yeah it works great and my kids come and its all good,'" he said.

Jenner and Kris announced their separation after 22 years of marriage in October.
