Brad Pitt discusses wearing a skirt at the Bullet Train premiere
Brad Pitt took a moment to comment on his recent fashion antics at the Los Angeles premiere of Bullet Train on Monday night.
The actor has made an impression as he continued the global promotion cycle for the action film, making headlines last week for wearing a linen skirt to the film’s premiere in Germany.
Pitt gave the best explanation he could for the inspiration behind the look.
“I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s screw it up,” Pitt said diversity is Marc Malkins.

The star didn’t wear a skirt to the film’s Los Angeles premiere, instead sporting a roomy green suit complemented by a teal singlet and bright yellow sneakers.
In “Bullet Train,” Pitt plays a hitman who must fight his way through a train full of dangerous killers played by actors including Bad Bunny, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry. The group finds that all of their responsibilities overlap with each other’s and things spiral out of control from there. Deadpool 2 and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch helms the action flick.
Although the violence on Bullet Train is almost relentless, Pitt made it clear that he was happy to delegate some dangerous moments during production to a professional stuntman.
“I’m trying to get out of there. I love a stuntman,” Pitt said. “This was an action comedy, something I’ve never done before. David and I have always been huge Jackie Chan fans. We had talked about him for decades. He’s like our Buster Keaton. He is so talented and even underestimated. Doing something along those lines really appealed to me.”
Pitt also shared that he avoided injury while shooting the film, although some of his colleagues weren’t so lucky.
“I definitely went home and said ‘Owwwww’ but no!” Pitt exclaimed. “But Aaron on the other side. Brian on the other hand! The boys, do you understand?’
Bullet Train hits theaters this Friday.
