Brad Pitt on why he wore a skirt to ‘Bullet Train’ premiere
Brad Pitt isn’t skirting around the truth.
The Oscar winner, 58, explained on Monday why he decided to rock a skirt at the German premiere of his new comedy-action flick “Bullet Train” last month.
The “Fight Club” star showed off his tattoos on the Berlin red carpet on July 19 where he sported a light pink shirt, combat boots, a brown kilt and a matching jacket.
At Monday’s Los Angeles premiere of “Bullet Train,” Pitt revealed why he opted for the style choice.
“I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s mess it up,” he told Variety.
For Monday’s bash, the “Once upon a Time… in Hollywood” actor wore a green suit and yellow sneakers.
Pitt previously described why he decided to wear a skirt at the Berlin show last month, jokingly telling the Associated Press: “The breeze. The breeze.”
The David Leitch film stars Pitt as a hitman who has encountered several killers aboard a fast-moving train. Sandra Bullock, Logan Lerman, Bad Bunny, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry also appear in the movie.
The father of six also revealed to the outlet how the movie’s violence is an ongoing theme throughout the plot and how he was happy to let his stuntman do some of the more hardcore moves dusting shooting.
“I try to get out of it. I love a stuntman,” Pitt said. “This one was action-comedy, something I’ve never done before.”
He continued: “David and I had always been big fans of Jackie Chan. We’d been talking about him for decades. He’s kind of our Buster Keaton. He’s so talented and underrated even. Just to do something in that direction was what was really appealing to me.”
The “Troy” star also shed some light on retirement rumors at the LA red carpet yesterday.
Pitt told Deadline on Monday: “I was just saying, ‘I’m past middle age and I want to be specific about how I spend those last things however they may be.’ I’ve never been a five-year plan kind of guy. I’m just, whatever feels right for the day. I still operate that way.”
Pitt previously revealed his inability to remember faces is a condition he suffers from, called prosopagnosia, or face blindness.
“Nobody believes me,” he told GQ. “But it’s a mystery to me, man. I can’t grasp a face and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view.”
“Bullet Train” fights its way into theaters on Aug. 5.
