Though it’s becoming increasingly more common to see men in skirts out and about, when actor Brad Pitt donned one for the premiere of his recent movie “Bullet Train” on July 19, it came as quite a shock. Now, he is opening up about why he made that choice.

Pitt was recently in the news after a photo of him wearing a linen skirt circulated on social media and news platforms. When asked by Variety why he chose to wear the skirt, Pitt stated: “I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s mess it up.”

At the Berlin premiere of his recent film, Oklahoma native and actor Brad Pitt wore a great linen suit with a frayed hem and pleated design. He also sported matching Stylmartin boots that showed off his tattoos, as well as a pink button-down blouse.

Some people admired Pitt’s new fashion style, while others harshly criticized it. However, the actor doesn’t intend to let these negative comments stop him from doing what he wants.

Variety interviewed Pitt about his new film, “Bullet Train.” The movie stars Pitt as “a hitman who has to fight his way through a train filled with dangerous killers, played by actors like Bad Bunny, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Brian Tyree Henry.”

Stunt work is always something to look forward to in movies, and Pitt was especially excited for this movie. He explained: “I try to get out of it. I love a stuntman. This one was action-comedy, something I’ve never done before. David and I had always been big fans of Jackie Chan. We’d been talking about him for decades. He’s kind of our Buster Keaton. He’s so talented and underrated even. Just to do something in that direction was what was really appealing to me. ”

The movie Bullet Train, released August 5, features five killers who realize they are all working towards the same goal while on a bullet train. The film stars Joey King, Sandra Bullock, and Brian Tyree Henry in addition to Pitt.

Pitt has commented on men wearing skirts before, most recently in 2004 while promoting his film “Troy.” At the time, he explained: “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 past, Pitt has said he wants to wear clothes that don’t limit him to one gender. For example, when he posed for Rolling Stone in 1999, he wore a few dresses.

Blurring the lines between genders in fashion is not a new concept, although it has only been gaining traction in mainstream media for a few years. LGBTQ individuals have been Rocking androgynous looks for decades but thanks to body-positive celebrities like Jaden Smith, poseurs like Chadwick Boseman, and trailblazers like Billy Porter, we are slowly seeing these fabulous non-binary ensembles make their way into the public eye.

Three well-known people who have worked to make genderless clothing more mainstream are Jared Leto, Kid Cudi, and Harry Styles.
