Brad Pitt Lands in LAX

Posted on April 04, 2014

Pop-Pop’s back from desert survivalist camp, kids! Let’s make a WELCOME HOME sign and meet him at the gate!


Brad Pitt is seen arriving at LAX.

Too mean?

Pop-Pop looks so much better with short hair and a groomed face, though. And you can’t deny that Pop-Pop was born to wear aviator glasses, as was his wife, Nana Angie.

Why do Pop-Pop and Nana Angie dress like they’re afraid of color? We wish we could answer that one, little darlings. They always were a little odd. Now go find your crayons and let’s make that sign.

    I had those exact same boots in 1995.

    • understateddiva

      I did too in black!

  • Sarah

    My grandpa had a whole slew of those hats, but they were all patchwork tweed, or green, or black, or slate. Even my grandpa knew you look better with color on your body. He’s like a Tatooine Grandpa.

    • @Biting Panda

      “Tattooine Grandpa” is making me cackle.

    • decormaven

      Absolutely killing it! Hardy har har….

  • Gatto Nero

    Except for sweatpants, Uggs and PJs, I tend to forgive all airport wear.

    • 3boysful

      Ahh, but when you’re traveling to or from someplace cold, Uggs are comfy and easily removed and put on at TSA.

      Am with you on the sweatpants and especially the pjs. Hard to believe men used to wear suits and hats, and we women had to wear white gloves.

      • Gatto Nero

        OK — maybe I’m being too harsh about the Uggs.

        • Jen

          I don’t know if you can ever be too harsh about Uggs 😉

          • 3boysful

            Try em, girlfriend–it’s like permission to wear bedroom slippers in public.

  • Danielle

    If you wear khaki from the waist up, I’m going to assume you know everything about animals.

  • It is like a photographed coloring book, isn’t it?

  • calimon

    They look like the military issued boots my sister had in the Army. But, I have a sneaking suspicion that his are designer brand.

    • Constant Reader

      We have at least a couple of pairs of those around here, but the are Real Army Boots, not Crazy Survivalist Pop-Pop boots.

  • marlie

    He does look a lot better well-groomed. And I’m not sure why he of all people wears clothes that have random holes and tears in them.

    • Trent

      Right? And I agree, aside from the ratty pants he does look pretty good here…not nipped, tucked or Botoxed.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour


    • RedRaven617

      I know!!! And they aren’t for fashion. It looks like moths got at them.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        You know, I really don’t like to use the term “douche bag” but he just is one.

      • sugarkane105

        How exactly do moths infiltrate the Jolie-Pitt compound? I mean, I don’t even get moths and I have a one-bedroom on the ground floor of a 1980’s apartment building.

        • demidaemon

          They are international moths adopted solely to showcase the corner of Africa from which they are nearly extinct in.

  • If by ‘mean’ you mean hilarious and spot on, then no – this is precisely mean enough.

  • NMMagpie

    Looks good in a I-don’t-give-a-damn-what-you-think way. Always.

  • crash1212

    Love the jacket. Love the shoes. Love the grooming. I ain’t mad at him.

  • jw_ny

    I can accept a henley collar on his shirt, but I cannot accept it on his jacket…just weird.

    The monochromatic look…that’s a no from me too, however I don’t care that he’s casual and comfortable in his church pants (hole-ly) when traveling. I’ve seen a lot worse. They are way too long though…whatever…

  • @Biting Panda

    My, Pop Pop, the desert must have been very “refreshing”, you’re looking swell.

    • Right? We didn’t want to say anything but that sure is some dewy skin on Pop-Pop.

      • Gatto Nero

        Clearly he knows the importance of moisturizing before a long flight.

    • 3boysful

      It’s cause he looks well groomed compared to recent appearances.

    • DTLAFamilies

      I’m okay with it because his jawline is appropriately slack for someone his age. If he suddenly develops a razor sharp jaw, I won’t be able to look at him anymore.

    • Pop-Pop reminisces over the good ‘ol days filming the desert scene with Nana Angie for Mr. and Mr. Smith…

  • ScarlettHarlot

    Maybe they think color will look to flashy, un-serious, or calling out to be noticed?

  • Frank_821

    Those holes do not look random. if you look at the second picture. they look like a patch designed into it

  • Fuchsiaforever

    Um, maybe they don’t wear color cuz they have like 10 kids? Too busy to complicate life with color combo decisions? Although they must have like 10 nannies and PAs, to make life easier…hmmm…that’s a tough one….Maybe cuz they seem travel so much? So it’s like the practical, easy mix-n-match traveler’s wardrobe? Maybe?

  • sugarkane105

    I feel as if the Jolie-Pitts avoid color because they’re so inclined to shrink away from the spotlight after having been such strong media presences for so long. It seems now they no longer want the attention and are hoping to both dip behind the camera, rather than in front. If Angie wore an all-red dress, or if Brad wore just a freakin’ blue suit, they’d feel like they were saying “YES, KEEP LOOKING AT ME, I AM BOTH SUPREMELY FAMOUS AND BOLDLY DRESSED, BOW DOWN PEASANTS”

    Or they could just be boring.

  • decormaven

    Ode to Oatmeal.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I’m frightened, because I’ve never been less attracted to him as I am right now. And he’s Brad fucking Pitt.

    • FrigidDiva

      I’ve been there for awhile, don’t be too scared.

  • Works for me…but then I’m much less judgmental! 🙂

    • JauntyJohn

      lol… riiiiight. 😉

    • Gatto Nero

      Less judgmental than …?? [:-)

  • MilaXX

    He”s clean shaven so I an forgive the rest. Especially since he’s flying. This is pretty decent for airplane clothing.

  • Erica

    Maybe a tad mean, since he looks pretty good for a 50-year old. Of course, maybe I’m sensitive because I’ll be 50, in 5 short years, when my kids are turning 12 and 8. And I do NOT look like anyone’s Meemaw, dammit!

    I would prefer it if his shoes didn’t match his outfit quite so much.

  • Nicole J.P.

    How much do I LOVE that you guys call him “Pop-Pop”! Ha ha

  • what not

    Now I’m really curious where he was actually flying in from.

    • alyce1213

      France, I think.

      • what not

        French-occupied Algeria, perhaps.

        • alyce1213

          Looks like it, but it was Actual France, it was in the papers.

          • what not

            Heh, just kidding. Thanks for the info!

  • bizarro

    I can’t with that jacket. Douchetastic. Would never let my husband wear that collar-less (and color-less) thing.

  • Dee

    Oh I looovve when he shaves. I’ve missed that beautiful jawline. All else is forgiven.

  • Jen

    ‘Pop-Pop’ is going to keep me laughing for a good few days…

  • Jacob Bowen

    50 shades of oatmeal.

  • suzq

    I especially love the three, artistically placed holes on the left pant leg where no holes would ever be. My teenaged son spent a good portion of time the other day poking holes in the brand new pair of jeans I bought him. I’m going to start calling him “Brad Pitt.”

    He has no idea who Brad Pitt is.

    • I think Brad’s stylist — or even Brad himself — has no idea who he is, either.

      (P.S. – I’m glad someone else posted about the holes before I did, just read this!)

    • ShaoLinKitten

      Aren’t those holes right over his knee? Not that I love that outfit, but the holes aren’t what bugs me.

  • Linda Leeson

    No love for the Palladium boots?

  • JP

    I’m just so glad the straggly long hair is gone I forgive any clothing transgressions.

  • Wink

    This isn’t horrible, just head-to-toe blah. He looks best when he’s freshly scrubbed and in a suit / sportcoat… like his wardrobe in the Ocean’s movies.

  • Pop-Pop also paid an extra month’s-worth of my rent for those 3 infuriating holes on the left trouser. His spending is getting out of control!

  • Gina Mondzelewski Small

    He looks like Bruce Willis in these photos. WTF!

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I’m a Brad Pitt Stan… so what I can I say? He looks mighty fine to me. I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for wearing a fugly jacket.

    • demidaemon

      Well, if he is in your bed, I assume you would have already divested him of said ugly jacket.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        He could keep it on if he wanted. I’d be sad about it, but I think I could get over it, ifyaknowwhatimean.

        • demidaemon

          Well, if that’s the only thing he was wearing, I might find him very attractive again. I love the half-undressed look.

          • ShaoLinKitten

            Like I said, I’m a Brad Stan– I never thought he looked bad, even with the scraggly hair and jacked up beard. His clothes leave something to be desired. Can’t kill the love for me. We all have one or two like that, I’m sure.

  • d4divine

    That’s the sexiest Pop pop I’ve ever seen…color smuther…the man oozes sex

  • d4divine

    I like the shoes. They may be Uggs brand, but they are your basic military style desert boot.

  • Clash D

    Those ratty pants pretty much ruin the look.

  • kat89

    I get why the average person would stick to neutrals. It’s a budget thing and we want to be able to wear something as many ways as we can for as long as we can, but for people like the Jolie-Pitts who have lots of money, I think it’s just a matter of not wanting to put in the effort.

  • TigerLaverada

    I can see what you’re saying, but he still looks waaay better than my Pop-Pop ever did.

  • HE FINALLY CUT HIS HAIR. That’s the best news I’ve heard in celebrity gossip in a while. He should ditch the chin scruff too though – it’s too white compared to his head. It looks like he has sand on his face.

  • FridaStaire

    Such a relief to see him without the horrible beard!

  • CatherineRhodes

    Makes me laugh, cuz I think about the scene during the first season of “Breaking Bad” where Walt and Skylar attend a fancy party at the house of Walt’s billionaire-former partner. Walt wears a suit and Skylar puts on a puffy prom dress, but all the rich sophisticated guests at the party are dressed in beige. Beige, the color of money, who knew?

  • OffToSeeHim

    I don’t know what it is, no matter what he’s wearing he always looks like SUCH a douche.
