Brad Pitt Explains His ‘Bullet Train’ Premiere Skirt

Brad Pitt has fun with fashion.

The Oscar winner made headlines last month when he showed up at the Berlin premiere of his new action film, ‘Bullet Train’, wearing a brown linen skirt by Haans Nicholas Mott.

And at the film’s LA opening Monday, Pitt, 58, shared why he chose the viral look.

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

For the event in the German capital, the “Legends of the Fall” actor paired his skirt with a matching jacket and salmon-colored linen shirt, along with Stylmartin combat boots and layered necklaces.

The outfit was a smart choice for the blistering temperatures in Berlin, which soared into the mid-90s on the day of the premiere; when asked why he chose a skirt at the time, Pitt joked, “The breeze. The Wind.”

The garment shared it on social media, with many praising the star’s gender-fluid fashion movement.

“Just when you think of Brad Pitts [sic] couldn’t get sexier, he’s wearing a skirt,” a person tweetedwhile another wrote“All the dinosaurs upset today at Brad Pitt in a skirt. I personally love it!”

Others weren’t so sure. “Whoever convinced Brad Pitt to wear a skirt should be flogged,” said one critic tweeted; “Hey grannies, lock your wardrobes, Brad Pitt might loot it looking for your skirts,” another joked.

The predilection of the actor “Seven” for skirts is nothing new. Way back in 2004, after spending time in breastplates and leather kilts for “Troy,” Pitt told British Vogue, “men will be wearing skirts next summer. That’s my prediction and proclamation.”

While the star wore another Mott linen look to promote his film in Los Angeles, this time he opted for a slouchy apple green suit with a teal undershirt and sunny yellow sneakers.

You have to keep things fresh anyway.
