Daisy Lowe's ex feels self-conscious

Doctor Who star Matt Smith might be a heartthrob but it hasn’t stopped him feeling self-conscious about his appearance.

Matt, who has played the Doctor since 2010, thinks his ears are too big.

[The thing I dislike most about my appearance is that] I’ve got big ears,’ says Matt, 30.

The actor, who used to date model Daisy Lowe, reveals that he also has a huge scar on his head that’s hidden under his hair.

[My earliest memory is of] getting my head cracked open at playschool when I was three,’ Matt tells The Guardian Weekend.

I was on a pirate swing and I fell under it and it sliced into my head. I had 24 stitches. If I ever shaved my head, I’d have a massive scar there.’
