Brad Pitt said he wore a skirt to a Bullet Train screening because we’re all going to die.
The Fight Club actor, 58, gave the explanation when asked why he wore the knee-length outfit to the Berlin showing of his latest film.
He told Variety on Monday night, while wearing an all-green combination, about his recent quirky sartorial choices: “I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s mess it up.”
It comes after he told GQ earlier this year: “I consider myself on my last leg. This last semester or trimester.
“What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?”
Pitt’s skirt was accompanied by a light brown cardigan and accessorised with a cluster of necklaces, along with sunglasses and black combat boots.
At the time, social media users had mixed reactions to the look.
“Who cares if Brad Pitt wore a skirt? A good iron was needed for the whole ensemble. Looks like he found a bag of clothes in the dumpster and put it on,” one user wrote.
Pitt joins the likes of other male celebrities to have rocked the traditionally female garment, including Harry Styles, Lil Nas X, Oscar Isaac, Pete Davidson, Russell Westbrook, Odell Beckham Jr and Jared Leto.
Meanwhile, his film Bullet Train has received average reviews so far with a score of 51 on Metacritic.
Chicago Sun Times gave it a glowing review and said: “Unlike so many of the cookie-cutter, wisecracking-assassin movies in recent memory, Bullet Train acknowledges its outlandishness from the beginning and yet also manages to connect so many dots in creative, gotcha fashion.”
Meanwhile, AV Club gave it a poor review, writer Rodd Gilchrist said, “ultimately, Bullet Train aims to be slick when it needs to be smart, and predictable when it should be provocative — effectively making all of the wrong stops at exactly the wrong time.”
Bullet Train hits Australian cinemas this Thursday.
