Brad Pitt Comes Clean on Why He Won't Lose the Beard
It's a very simple reason the much-discussed facial scruff won't go away
That much-discussed beard on Brad Pitt’s superstar chin has now surpassed the excuse of novelty. And it’s not even there for a role.
Now the actor has given his reason for the straggly facial fluff: He can’t be bothered to change it. “It’s boredom. No other reason than that,” he told Britain’s Sun while chatting in the London kitchen of supermodel Claudia Schiffer and Matthew Vaughn – the director and Pitt’s fellow producer on the upcoming movie Kick-Ass.
Sipping Guinness stout and smoking a cigarette, Pitt, 46, added that he has been getting into Brit rapper Dizzee Rascal, another guest at the Kick-Ass after-party. (The movie opens in the U.S. April 16.)
“That guy has got it,” he said of Dizzee Rascal. “The kids are really into his stuff. I have worked out to that song ‘Bonkers.’ ”
Pitt, who is a longtime collaborator with Vaughn (they worked together on the movie Snatch), also spoke about how he once nearly got into a scrape over a woman during a visit to Scotland.
“When I was in Glasgow I got involved with this girl. She happened to be the ex-girlfriend of a bit of a bad guy. I ended up having to get out of town because I was getting ‘that’ look from a guy behind a bar,” said Pitt. “It was heavy.”
