Brad Pitt Explains Why He Wore a Skirt to ‘Bullet Train’ Premiere


Brad Pitt does not skirt the truth.

The Oscar-winning actor, 58, explained on Monday why he decided to wear a skirt at the German premiere of his new comedy action movie ‘Bullet Train’ last month.

The “Fight Club” star showed off his tattoos on the Berlin red carpet on July 19 where he wore a light pink shirt, combat boots, a brown kilt and a matching jacket.

At the Los Angeles premiere of “Bullet Train” on Monday, Pitt revealed why he went with this style choice.

“I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s spoil it,” he told Variety.

For Monday’s party, the ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ actor wore a green suit and yellow sneakers.

Pitt previously explained why he decided to wear a skirt to the Berlin show last month, joking Associated press: “The breeze. The breeze.”

The David Leitch film stars Pitt as a hitman who 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 film.

The father-of-six also revealed to the outlet how the film’s violence is a recurring theme throughout the plot and how happy he was to let his stuntman do some of the more hardcore moves.

“I’m trying to get out of it. I love a stuntman,” Pitt said. “This one was an action comedy, something I had never done before.”

He continued: “David and I have always been big fans of Jackie Chan. We’ve been talking about him for decades. He’s kind of our Buster Keaton. He’s so talented and even underrated. Just doing something in that direction was what really appealed to me.

The ‘Troy’ star also shed some light on the retirement rumors on the Los Angeles 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 these last things, whatever they are. I’ve never been one to plan for five years. I’m just, whatever suits me best for the day. I always work this way.

Pitt has previously revealed that 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” makes its way into theaters on August 5.
