Brad Pitt on Why He Wore a Skirt to the ‘Bullet Train’ Premiere

Brad Pitt doesn’t get around the truth.

The Oscar winner, 58, explained on Monday why he decided to rock a skirt at the German premiere of his new comedy action movie “Bullet Train” last month.

The “Fight Club” star showed off his tattoos on the Berlin red carpet on July 19, where he wore a pale pink shirt, combat boots, a brown kilt and a matching jacket.

At the Los Angeles premiere of “Bullet Train” on Monday, Pitt revealed why he chose the style.

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

Brad Pitt turned heads at the German premiere of “Bullet Train” wearing a brown skirt and matching top.

For Monday’s bash, the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” actor wore a green suit and yellow sneakers.

Pitt previously described why he decided to wear a skirt at the show in Berlin last month, while jokingly telling Associated Press: “The Wind. The Wind.”

In David Leitch’s film, Pitt plays a hit man who has encountered several killers aboard a speeding train. Sandra Bullock, Logan Lerman, Bad Bunny, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry also appear in the film.

The father of six also revealed to the outlet how the film’s violence is an ongoing theme throughout the plot and how he liked to have his stuntman do some of the more hardcore moves that dust off shooting.

“I’m trying to get out. I like a stuntman,” Pitt said. “This was an action comedy, something I’ve never done before.”

He continued: “David and I had always been huge fans of Jackie Chan. We’ve been talking about him for decades. He’s kind of our Buster Keaton. He is so talented and even underestimated. Just doing something along those lines really appealed to me.”

The “Troy” star also shed some light on rumors of retirement on the LA red carpet yesterday.

Pitt told Deadline on Monday: “I just said, ‘I’m past middle age and I want to be specific about how I spend those last things, whatever they are.’ “I’ve never been one to have a five-year plan. I’m just what feels right for the day. That’s how I still work.”

Pitt previously revealed that his inability to remember faces is a condition he suffers from called prosopagnosia or face blindness.

“Nobody believes me,” he told GQ. “But it’s a mystery to me, man. I can’t grasp a face and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view.”

“Bullet Train” battles its way into theaters on August 5.
