(RepublicanInformer.com)- To combat the heat in Germany, Brad Pitt chose a skirt and shirt ensemble on the red carpet at the screening of his newest film, Bullet Train.
Many social media users have commented on his appearance; some have applauded his choice of clothing, while others have made fun of him for wearing a skirt.
Pitt’s most recent action thriller from his production company, Plan B, is titled Bullet Train. On Tuesday, July 19, he was joined by his co-stars Zazie Beetz, Brian Tyree Henry, Joey King, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson for an event in Berlin.
Pitt grabbed attention on the red carpet with his brown skirt and jacket ensemble. His outfit was finished off with a salmon-colored button-up shirt and black boots. Between the skirt and the boots, his shins showed tattoos. Pitt responded that he was wearing a “kilt” for the “wind” when a reporter questioned him about it.
Playwright and podcaster Melanie Tait agreed with Brad Pitt’s attire decision when she remarked on Twitter, “Just when you think Brad Pitt could be much sexier, he wears a skirt.”
Does she speak for the majority of women? Do women find men wearing skirts to be sexy?
A Twitter Pitt fan account at the premiere, @SimplyBradCom, remarked on his overall appearance. They said that “no eff’s were given.”
Elisha Krauss, an American journalist, expressed the opposing opinion. She wrote, “Whoever persuaded Brad Pitt to don a skirt should be flogged.
Other celebrities over the years have donned “women’s wear.”
The son of Will “the slapper” Smith, Jaden Smith, has worn dresses with an explanation for doing so.
Jaden’s reasoning is he is trying to normalize skirts for others.
“In 5 years, when a kid goes to school wearing a skirt, he won’t get beat up, and kids won’t get mad at him. It just doesn’t matter. I’m taking the brunt of it so that later on, my kids and the next generations of kids will all think that certain things are normal that weren’t expected before my time.”
Is this a better reason than Pitt’s, who seemed only to want to keep his “nether region” cool?
