Brad Pitt at “Fury” Photocall

Posted on August 29, 2014

Brad celebrates his nuptials like a movie star should: by dyeing his hair, posing for a publicity shot, and serving up his very best Redford.

Well. Redford by way of Ron Swanson, we suppose. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. It’s certainly a hell of sight better than his “Sons of Anarchy” fanboy days.

      Not bad, Brad. Not Bad. And I’ve never been a fanboy of his. But, not bad.

      • TAGinMO

        Best I’ve seen him look in years, IMHO.

      • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

        Yes, this was a very successful makeover.

    • Dino Bonačić

      Hhahha it’s so awful but still better than his usual so everyone’s like ‘BRAVO BRAD, BRAVO!’

      I say – mess.

      • Anna

        Agreed. And it was less Sons of Anarchy and more Billy Ray Cyrus to me. Hasn’t given me the feels since he was Tristan, and briefly again during the Oceans series.

        • AMinNC

          I got a distinct Joe Dirt vibe from the first photo. But it got better as I scrolled down.

        • demidaemon

          THIS. Can’t unsee it now. He looks so unattractive here. Angie must be rending her wedding pictures in fury.

      • Glam Dixie

        And either the angle or the proportions of his clothes are making his legs look really short which I’m pretty sure they aren’t. Better but considering how good I know he can look, this is still pretty meh.

    • veronkimo

      He did not age all that well.

      • pdquick

        I disagree. I think this is the sexiest I’ve ever seen him look. But I’m a middle-aged man, and becoming more partial to my own kind. :)

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          He looks better than 99% of the 50-year-olds I’ve ever seen.

          • RescueMe23

            I’ll agree with you there since I’ve been looking for men to date and the pickings are pretty slim in that age group! I still think he’s a bit of a douche though… :-)

          • SportifLateBoomer

            …on the basis of having a full head of hair alone!

            Still gorgeous, especially when he cleans up.

          • ShaoLinKitten

            He looks better than 80% of the forty year olds…

          • smh4748

            He’s 50??????? How? When? WHAT???

            This is going to be my big takeaway from today, I already know it.

            • KinoEye

              Incredible, isn’t it? Granted, I’m willing to bet he’s had some “help” along the way, but I live in a place where most of the community is age 50 and over. He is absurdly well preserved.

          • Kate4queen

            my husband’s pretty gorgeous too but he is a rarity :)

      • @Biting Panda

        Hmmmm, I’m not seeing that.
        I’d prefer a little more natural looking hair color, but the rest is working. Face is not craggy, nor freakishly smooth, bod is still 100% killer, eyes are still piercing. To each their own, but I would say he’s rather indisputably aging well, even if he’s not your cuppa.

        • anneshirley

          Totally agree. I find the uniformity of the hair color distracting, especially in contrast to his facial hair. Otherwise, he looks great.

        • Grumpy Girl

          Is that even his hair? Wasn’t it shorter in the nuptials pictures (I didn’t look at any of those closely, because he’s really not my cuppa).

        • marlie

          He’s SO not my cuppa, but I do think he looks better now than when he was younger. He’s definitely aging well. Still don’t like him, though.

          • TinyDynamo

            Totally agree! He’s not my type at all, but I definitely think he’s more appealing as he ages. I am not partial to anyone overly “perfect pretty”, so now that he looks more human, he’s handsomer to my eyes. But still, Angie can have him.

        • demidaemon

          My problem is the hair cut. It’s a pseudo-mullet, which is not good.

      • CPK1

        I think he has aged VERY well. But I wish he hadn’t dyed his hair that color. Looks like boot polish. But maybe it’s for a role.

      • SugarSnap108

        Well, it’s all subjective but to me, young Brad Pitt was too pretty, and age has made him more attractive. But I think that’s the common affliction of pretty boys: As they get older and lose the pretty, some people see it as “not aging well.” Others like what the years bring. :)

        • girliecue

          Well said!

        • Wink

          Yes! I also think Rob Lowe is far more handsome now that his face has a few lines and isn’t so ‘girly-pretty.’ (Take Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic… everyone was swooning over him, but I thought he looked like a teenage girl… making out with Kate Winslet.)

          • SugarSnap108

            Agreed, on both current Rob Lowe and Titanic Leo :)

            • demidaemon

              Agreed. But I think both Brad and Rob have aged significantly better than Leo.

      • Chuck Barthelme

        I actually disagree. I think his problem is that he has not taken to aging well. He’s dressing like he might have 20 years ago, and it’s no longer working for him. He looks good still in movies, which means he needs to find someone to dress and groom him for real life.

        • http://Reneesance.etsy.com Reneesance

          ^This! I get sad looking at him on the red carpet, but then see a trailer for a movie and it’s all like “Oh THERE you are!”

        • Wink

          Pitt could take lessons from his pal George Clooney, who dresses like a grown-ass man and looks mighty fine while doing it. On the other hand, Clooney isn’t schlepping six kids through airports, so he doesn’t have to worry about grubby hands and mystery stains ruining his clothes!

      • dustinrhodes

        What is that even supposed to mean? This man has a full head of hair, an in-shape body, beautiful skin. How is that not aging well? Good god, I hope I don’t age this well.

      • MartyBellerMask

        I think he looks great, but he’s not my thing. Give me aging Eddie Vedder.

        • TinyDynamo

          RIGHT?!? Lord that man got handsome!

      • Man Dala

        He looks fantastic for his age.

    • Kitten Mittons

      “Redford by way of Ron Swanson”
      This is something I didn’t even know that I desperately wanted.
      The only thing that could make that better is some bacon.

      • Nancer

        And some Lagavulin… :]

        • Kitten Mittons

          Neat.

      • @Biting Panda

        and some “Tammy”

        • Kitten Mittons

          “I can smell the sulfur coming off her cloven hooves”

          • Madam Von Sassypants

            BKs + Parks & Rec = my favorite combo today.

      • Mona_Visa

        How would I like my steak? Next to my other steak. Actually if I could have all of that (Pitt, Swanson) and Megan Mullally too it would be a pretty fantastic day. ; )

        • Kitten Mittons

          A little turf n’ turf to start the weekend. Nothing wrong with that.

        • Julie Chase

          Wait. I worry what you just heard was give me a lot of bacon and eggs. What I said was “Give me ALL the bacon and eggs you have.”

      • smh4748

        Some bacon? I think you meant ALL the bacon (and eggs) you have.

        • Kitten Mittons

          Clearly an oversight on my part. How silly of me!

    • @Biting Panda

      Hellooooo Mr. Jolie.
      Marriage looks good on you sir.

      Also, his turning in RR is seriously happening. I loved their scenes together in Spy Game.

      • MartyBellerMask

        I never saw that one. I was just thinking about A River Runs Through It. In which he played a young Robert Redford…
        …’s brother.

    • SophiaPehawkins

      He’s looking very Benicio Del Toro but not as hot. I don’t dig it.

      • MilaXX

        Not working for me either

      • Introspective

        Is ANYONE as hot as Benicio? the standard is way too high my dear.

        but hey, I think Brad cleaned up nice for this one.

        • SophiaPehawkins

          Brad had his own form of hotness but for reasons unbeknownst to me, he continually fights it. Maybe he thinks he was too pretty, too good-looking to be taken seriously. He looks okay here. He’s looked better. He could look better.

      • random_poster

        Right? I stared at his hair for a while wondering if is wearing a wig. I like Brad best with short hair.

    • Capt. Renault

      Are they allowed to stencil on the museum pieces like that?

    • Saturnine

      There’s a weird “shadow face” on his face in the third pic. What is that? Bad contour? Harsh lighting?

      Topic: I really never have anything to say (good or bad) when it comes to Brad Pitt. He’s like margarine..

    • Barbara Affolter

      That is some serious Gary Oldman hair.

      Also, I just realized that was an unintentional pun.

    • conniemd

      He looks pretty damn hot to me, and he is aging the way Redford did, too.

      • alyce1213

        Kicking and screaming? I jest. ‘Blonde’ men age that way. I think they tend to get more interesting looking.

    • LadyVimes

      He has the Soulful Stare down to a science. I’m not complaining.

    • NMMagpie

      Just stand there and smolder. It works for me.

    • Chattygal

      He looks better than he’s looked in a while.

    • enchanted216

      But I sorta dig the Homeless Jesus look…;)

      • c8h10n4o2

        We still have Jared Leto for that.

    • James

      I still think he’s ridiculously hot. Mmmmm.

    • MilaXX

      I think I’d prefer Ron Swanson. At least I know I’d get good furniture out if the deal.

    • In_Stitches

      I think the brown hair makes him look a little more generic, but you can’t hide all that light under a brown bush(el).

    • RescueMe23

      Douche – first word that popped into my head. That hair is hilarious!

      • Bernd

        Looks like a bad wig to me

      • bizarro

        I was just about to post the same thing!

    • Emily Dagger

      Now that you’ve pointed out the resemblance, I will never unsee it.

      • formerlyAnon

        For me, a LOT of the resemblance is how he’s holding his body. Redford kinda specialized in that “boyish drape over nearby objects.” (Hell, he could do the boyish drape standing solo in space.) I don’t pay enough attention to pictures of Pitt to know if he usually stands like this, but I don’t think so, somehow.

        • Emily Dagger

          Oh, I meant the Ron Swanson resemblance. People have been selling him as the new Redford since Legends of the Fall.

          • formerlyAnon

            Ha. That’s how Pitt-aware I am. I actually think that with the head tilt and facial hair the Swanson resemblance is stronger than the Redford.

    • Ediths_Head

      Love the third shot with Alfred Hitchcock’s profile on his profile. Brilliant cinema history, Brad! Way to call a genius to mind. So many levels!

      • Saturnine

        That’s who it is!

      • prettyinmink

        Wow…good eye!

    • alyce1213

      I can’t stop laughing (Robert Redford by way of Ron Swanson). I’ve never been a huge fan of his type of elfin, boyish looks, always thought he needed some character in his face, and he seems to be getting it with age. So, good!
      What is that hair color? It looks like furniture stain.
      And — Congratulations to the lovely couple! May their fame multiply.

      • papillon

        I don’t think it would be possible for them to be any more famous than they already are, honestly.

    • sutton

      This is the hottest he has looked to me in a very long time.

      • mom2ajs5

        Totally! I’ve always liked the cleaned-up Brad better than the shaggy version. And how does he not age??

    • http://heartprintandstyle.com/ Vivi N

      Still don’t get the hype.

      • prettyinmink

        I’ve never been attracted to any of the Hollywood guys everyone goes crazy for, but at 50 years old, I can admit Brad looks better here than he has in quite a while.

    • ElaineMarie34

      Okay, but I might have to re-watch Thelma and Louise to remember why I once thought he was hot.

    • verucaamish

      I was thinking more along the lines of Blake Shelton.

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Jacket’s too much like a suit jacket to be worn that casually I think. It’s also too shiny.

    • JenniferA

      Ron Swanson would not approve of that half-hearted facial hair. Go big or go home, Brad! Okay, he does actually look pretty hot here.

    • SewingSiren

      I’m thinking Charles Bronson.

    • Janet B

      He is still a good looking man underneath the bad hair and layers of clothes.

    • http://fibonaccisequins.storenvy.com/ Danielle

      I ain’t mad at it.

    • marlie

      Eh, not bad. I definitely see a lot of Robert Redford in him here. I’m still not crazy about the whole look, but it’s far better than some of his other looks.

    • ktr33

      Sundance Kid mutton chops

    • ktr33

      Ohhh! SUNDANCE! I finally got it. WOW, am I dumb.

      • MartyBellerMask

        LOL!

    • barbarienne

      Ugh, I just hate the ‘stache. Brad, you are too good looking to try so hard to look douchey. Either commit to a properly groomed mustache and beard, or accept what the genetic randomizer gave you and own your damn face.

    • PinkyK

      He makes my lady bits flutter! Oops? TMI?

    • Noah

      Whoever did his makeup ought to be taken out back for photo 3.

      • Joanna Schuth

        I think that’s a shadow of someone’s nose and lips.

        • Noah

          Haha that is equally possible! I was thrown because the shadow is the same shade as his neck.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Redford by way of Ron Swanson-I’ll take some of that.

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      For someone who has hair like a greek god…that cut stinks!

    • decormaven

      Something about the hair- a little too artfully tousled. Hair product or plugs?

      • ShaoLinKitten

        There s something up with the hair in the front. Maybe it’s plugs, or maybe it just looks weird.

      • Grumpy Girl

        I was thinking wig . . .

      • FibonacciSequins

        I think it’s artfully tousled to hide his receding hairline.

        • demidaemon

          I think it’s just a really bad haircut.

    • Freynika

      I don’t care much for the hairstyle or color, and clothing situation is kind of douchey (nothing worse than affected jeans and a shiny jacket), but then there’s that face. He’s got a really, really good face. Never really gave me the feels, but I can appreciate his face.

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      If I were faced with a choice of Nick Offerman or Brad Pitt, I would go with Offerman every time. But he is channeling vaguely-aging Redford here, and let’s face it, I wouldn’t throw him out of bed. The outfit is fine, but I’m not really digging the dye job.

    • Gatto Nero

      Wow. He looks … clean.
      And … awake.

    • girliecue

      With his hair dyed brown he and Greg Kinnear look like brothers. That’s a movie I’d go and see – especially if Redford plays their father. Having even a halfway decent hairstyle makes all the difference on Brad.

    • boweryboy

      The haircut and color are doing him no favors. It looks like a very bad toupee.

      • demidaemon

        Thank you for saying what I have been repeating all throughout this post. It’s a pseudo-mullet.

    • Another Kate

      I’m going to have both of my X chromosomes revoked for this, but I have never, ever, not for one minute, not during Thelma and Louise or at any other time, found Brad Pitt the slightest bit hot, handsome, or attractive. I’m sure he is a very nice guy and his romance with Angie is TEH SWOONZER and he’s a competent enough actor and all, but he just Does. Not. Do. It for this female. More for the rest of you, I guess.

      As for the pics: they’re okay, although that shiny jacket is giving me a migraine.

      • DeniseSchipani

        I’m with you, Kate. Never liked the obviously pretty ones.

      • BLauDGaspode

        I’m also in this club. Does nothing.
        Almost turns me off. Maybe it’s the whiff of douche I kind of get from him.

    • ashtangajunkie

      He doesn’t quite do it for me and I hate the facial hair, but I like him. Always have. Legends of the Fall and I jumped on the Brad Train.

    • moxx

      He’s still gorgeous.

    • Constant Reader

      He’s good-looking. He’s aging well. And yet, he looks like someone I’d run try like hell to avoid talking to at a cocktail party. I have no explanation for this.

    • mlle

      His jacket is too shiny and looks cheap.

    • KendraMR

      Meh. I never got the Brad Pitt hype, but I must say that he was pretty hot in “Fight Club”. Also, “Moneyball” was the first time I noticed how much he resembled Robert Redford (maybe because he was clean ).

      • ThaliaMenninger

        I’m trying to remember what movie it was where everybody seemed to be telling us that Brad Pitt looked like young Robert Redford. Maybe it was River Runs Through It. Anyway, I’m old enough to remember Pauline Kael hating on Redford (around Out of Africa time) for being just a movie star on screen, just standing there and projecting REDFORD but being vapid and bland otherwise. But I find him much much much more interesting (even in Out of Africa) than the even more vapid and bland Redford paper cutout known as Brad Pitt.

    • Tricia

      That hair…. O_o
      Please tell me that’s for a project. I was enjoying his grey.

    • Fitzperry

      “Redford by way of Ron Swanson” – That’s it exactly. How do you guys do that? Your descriptive skills are unparalleled.

    • smh4748

      I confess, I didn’t realize that he and Angelina weren’t married yet. There seemed to be rumors every year or two that they were getting married, and I think I just thought in the back of my mind that one of those must have actually been true!

    • Violentcello

      Wow, he is very Redford-y. Let’s cast him in a remake of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” Now, who do we get to play Butch?

      • ThaliaMenninger

        I’m sure you’re expecting someone to say Clooney, but I think he’s more in the Clark Gable vein. Meanwhile, Tom Berenger and William Katt already did Botch and Sundance: The Early Years. Excuse me, that’s Butch and Sundance. Except it wasn’t.

        • Violentcello

          He’s definitely a Gable type.

          What about Mathew McConaughy?

      • Mr. J.

        Me. I’ll play Butch. I’m very butch.

    • Laura F.

      God, this all so very Try Hard.

    • formerlyAnon

      I like it in a “yes, I remember that decade” kind of way. He looks good. But I just can’t get excited about Brad Pitt.

      Are those huge buttonholes back? Or is this an anomalous jacket?

    • H2olovngrl

      I dunno what it’s actually called, but I hate those jeans with the fake wrinkles.

      • stellamaris73

        Whiskering?

        • H2olovngrl

          Wait, you mean like PENIS whiskers?? Well great. Now I can’t unsee it!

          • demidaemon

            This sounds like very wispy pubic hair to me. I’m laughing my ass off at it.

    • papillon

      I’ve only ever found him attractive in Interview with a Vampire (which was also the only time I liked Tom Cruise) – but the other day I caught an ad for one of his old movies (not Thelma and Louise but around that time) and it finally hit me that he really was a beautiful young man. I can see why they chose him for Achilles.

    • SamE

      He’s no Idris Elba, but he’ll do for a sausage Friday (although whatever is up with his hair bugs me )

    • StrandedFashionista

      I want some gray in his hair! The flat brown makes him look like he’s trying to be 32 instead of fifty whatever he actually is.

    • Ashleigh

      HE’S HOT

    • jen

      Ha ha! I got a very Ron Swanson vibe from him as well.

    • gingerella

      He definitely looks (and is styled) younger than his years. However, his face is clearly freshly filled and until some of it dissipates, he looks a little apple-cheeked for my tastes.

    • Coco Cornejo

      Although I know it happens naturally. I always find it odd when there’s grey in the beard and none on the head.

    • Loladog10

      Third picture down–what’s going on with the dark splotch along the side of Brad’s face??? Is that make-up or lighting or my computer? Please say if anyone else is seeing this.

      • http://grandmassewingcabinet.com/ DrJulieAnn

        It is the shadow of someone’s face! You can see the outline of the nose and the lips and then the chin. How funny! (I needed a good laugh…thank you for pointing out the splotch!)

        • Loladog10

          Thank you, JulieAnn–you solved it!

    • Nazzzy

      I’ve had a thing for Robert ever since Up Close & Personal (and I was about 10 at the time) and making Brad look like him does not help the matter. At all

    • Akemi

      He looks less like a hobo then usual, so yay!
      But he doesn’t pull off those jeans as well as Ewan McGregor does. :)

    • carrie

      I will love Brad Pitt until the day I die. I’ll take him any way he comes ;-)

      SO REDFORD HERE!

    • Eztizen Sánchez

      For the first time in 5 years, I’d fuck him. I’d fuck him HARD.

    • Columbinia

      What is his real hair color, anyway?

      And didn’t he famously have a spa day and matching highlights done with Jennifer Aniston in preparation for their wedding way back when?

    • Milos Mom

      Good lord nooooooooooooooooooo. That haircut dates him so much. No. No. No. No. No. I want my scraggly Brad back.

    • demidaemon

      It’s okay. Not really feeling it, personally.

      haircut needs to go…he looks way way better in crewcut
