Brad Pitt has made headlines this week after he opted to wear a skirt in lieu of a pair of pants at the Berlin premiere of his new movie, Bullet Train.
Pitt stars in the film along with co-stars Sandra Bullock, Joey King and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
It centers around five assassins who find themselves on a fast-moving bullet train from Tokyo to Morioka - only to learn that their assignments are not quite what they expected them to be.[[imagecaption|| Brad Pitt at the screening of the movie Bullet Train. Credit: dpa picture alliance / Alamy.]]
While on the red carpet on Tuesday, the 58-year-old actor posed in his unique ensemble, which was made up of a brown knee-length skirt and a jacket to match.
The Fight Club star donned a pink shirt underneath the brown two-piece and adorned the look with a pair of chains, shades, and dark-colored combat boots.
The look also revealed some of the striking ink work on his legs, which included a human skull and the face of a rhinoceros.[[imagecaption|| Credit: dpa picture alliance / Alamy.]]
In any case, it turns out that Pitt has a perfectly good reason to wear a skirt - despite how unconventional it may be.
A reporter for The Associated Press asked him why he had chosen that particular outfit at that particular event and the actor simply responded: "The breeze. The breeze."
And as reported by British Vogue, back in 2004, when he was promoting his movie Troy, Pitt had said that he was anticipating that more and more men would add skirts to their wardrobe.
"Men will be wearing skirts by next summer," he said at the time, according to the outlet. "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."
Also, in an interview with Esquire last year, the dad of six said that getting "older" and "crankier" had changed the way he feels about the kind of attire he dresses in.
"You get older, you get crankier, and comfort becomes more important. I think it’s as simple as that," he said. "
If I have a style, it’s no style," he went on, adding that he enjoys high-quality stitching and tries to immerse himself in the way clothes make him feel.
"I like monochrome, without it being a uniform. I like simplicity. I like the details in the stitching, [and] the way it feels. If anything, that’s the only divining rod I have," he added.
