- Brad Pitt wore a matching skirt and blazer to the German ‘Bullet Train’ premiere.
- He wore them because “we’re all going to die.”
- Pitt chose a different look for the film’s Los Angeles premiere.
Brad Pitt explained why he chose to wear a skirt at the Berlin premiere of his new film ‘Bullet Train’ in July.
“I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s screw it up,” Pete said Variety’s Marc Malkin in an interview at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Monday, where he wore a green Kelly suit, teal long-sleeve T-shirt and mustard and oxblood sneakers;
At the premiere in Germany earlier, the Oscar-winning movie star made headlines after teaming a brown skirt with a matching brown jacket and a crumpled purple button-up shirt. She styled this outfit with brown sunglasses, black combat boots and rows of chains anchored in chunky medals.
Pitt is far from the only male celebrity to break conventional gender norms in fashion.
Gender-nonconforming fashion has been typical of the LGBTQ community for generations, but has gone mainstream in recent years and has become more normal on red carpets and events. Celebrities like it Jared Leto, Kid Cudiand Harry Styles were involved in bringing genderless fashion to the forefront of pop culture.
Pitt himself has expressed an interest in genderless fashion in the past. She wore a number of dresses for one 1999 Rolling Stone cover shoot. In 2004, Pete said British Vogue that “men will be wearing skirts until next summer” in an interview about his film Troy. In the film, adapted from the classic Greek epic poem The Iliad, Pitt played Achilles and she wore a leather skirt.
“This is my prediction and declaration. The film responds to both genders. We were going for realism and the Greeks were always wearing skirts,” he added.
More recently, he told Esquire in a 2021 interview that “comfort” was his first priority when choosing clothes and that he found chasing fashion trends “exhausting”.
Pitt plays an assassin codenamed Ladybug who is surrounded by other hitmen while trying to get a job on the “Bullet Train.”
Sandra Bullock, Bad Bunny, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie BeetzJoey King and Aaron Taylor-Johnson also star in director David Leitch’s action flick.
“Bullet Train” hits theaters on Friday, August 5.
