Brad Pitt wore a skirt to premiere of Bullet Train film – it’s not the first time he’s challenged gender norms with fashion
- The Oscar-winning actor wore a skirt to the Berlin premiere of his latest film, Bullet Train – but it’s not the first time Pitt has experimented with womenswear
- Pitt posed in numerous dresses for a Rolling Stone cover shoot in 1999 and, in 2004 while promoting a movie, predicted men wearing skirts would become a trend
Brad Pitt wore a skirt to the premiere of his latest film, Bullet Train, after predicting the trend of men wearing skirts almost 20 years ago.
Pitt is currently on an international tour to promote the movie alongside the main cast, Joey King, Aaron Taylor Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry.
On July 19, the film premiered in Berlin, Germany, and the Oscar-winning actor opted to wear a brown skirt showing off his multiple tattoos, including one of a rhinoceros and another that depicts a skull.
The 58-year-old actor also wore a matching brown jacket, a pink shirt, black combat boots and a pair of sunglasses to complete the look.
In 2004, Pitt also said that men wearing skirts would become a trend while promoting his movie Troy.
He told British Vogue: “Men will be wearing skirts by next summer. That’s my prediction and proclamation. The film answers to both genders. We were going for realism and Greeks wore skirts all the time then.”
In the movie, about the Greek epic poem The Iliad, Pitt had to wear a leather skirt which he said, in an interview with UK tabloid The Sun in 2020, was “chafing” him while filming.
In the past, Pitt has experimented with wearing womenswear. For his 1999 Rolling Stone cover shoot, Pitt posed in numerous dresses.
When asked last year about his sense of style, Pitt told Esquire that it is all about “comfort”.
“You get older, you get crankier and comfort becomes more important. I think it’s as simple as that,” he said. “I don’t want to look ostentatious, but if you come close, you notice. I like how the lining feels. It’s those details that are important to me. It’s too exhausting to follow trends.”
