Brad Pitt wears stupid hat, shiny jacket to screening: Johnny Depp lameness?


Here are some photos of Brad Pitt at a NYC screening of his new film, Fury, which comes out this Friday. Will you be seeing it? I might go. Maybe not opening weekend, but I have an interest in most WWII films and most critics say Fury is a great film. Brad wasn’t scheduled to appear at this screening, so he and his costars “surprised” the audience by introducing the film and passing out promotional t-shirts. Because Brad is great at hustling. That’s a trait that Brad and Angelina share: they are great at “turning it on” to promote their movies.

Since this wasn’t a real premiere, I’ll forgive Brad for his stupid outfit. The jeans are fine (he looks great in jeans almost always), but the shiny jacket and that stupid hat? Ugh, Brad. I guess it’s better than his beige-phase, when he wore the same khakis and thin beige t-shirt every single day for what felt like a year. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to forgive him for the hat though. Dear Brad: stop trying to be Johnny Depp! YOU ARE COOLER THAN JOHNNY DEPP.

Also: I thought this interview was maybe the cutest thing ever. This WWII vet was called in to consult on the production of Fury and he had absolutely no idea who Brad Pitt was, and even says that his initial reaction was “Who the hell is Brad Pitt?” But Brad won him over. This guy’s wife is totally into Brad though.

PS… Brad covers the new issue of Details – you can see the slideshow here. I’ll have coverage of the interview tomorrow!

    He looks awful! Shia apparently wore a nice suit. It’s a sad day when Shia looks better than Brad. Ugh!

    • wiffie says:

      Worse is the stupid look on his face. Like he knows he looks like an idiot.

    • Ursaline says:

      Ha ha ha! Love the cringe-worthy pr0nstache. It’s almost John Waters-esque.

    • lower-case deb says:

      i saw a picture of Brad kissing Shia’s hand during that premiere (as the other cast people looked on, not knowing where to put themselves in the meanwhile). what’s up with that?
      Best Dressed award?

      i wish Brad would kiss Pena instead. that’ll be something to launch a thousand fanfic. hell, i’ll write ’em myself. i will be the 50th Coming of EL James.

  2. Nev says:

    Big Daddy looks YUM as usual!!!!

    He can never be lame. Depp is lame not because of how he dresses. Hahaha

    The Details spread is stunning. What a beauty.

  3. TaterSkank says:

    This is one of the options on the list for the hubby and I for date night this weekend.
    Gone Girl
    Just get a pizza and watch the cats continue their takeover of our existence.
    Decisions, decisions…

    • Lilacflowers says:

      My cat would claim the pizza box and its contents for herself. We’ll be heading out to see Fury.

    Brad will be on Fallon tonight
    Fury is at 79% @rottentomatoes
    I hate the shiny jacket
    I hope Angie makes it to DC premiere

  5. tracking says:

    He could look wonderful, but chooses not to.

  6. Kitten says:

    Bah! He was looking so sexy there for while too…boo.

  7. PixieWitch says:

    what with the “rich people dressing like homeless people” thing going around in hollywood? it is an attempt to look like a regular guy? i just don’t get it. we know youre not poor, so stop trying to look like a dirty, slept in my clothes hobo.

    • lucy2 says:

      Running errands or just hanging out, I have no problem if they want to dress like that. But if you’re going to go to a screening, or any kind of event like that, step it up a little.

      Whoever is telling him those hats are flattering is not his friend.

  8. Clucky says:

    Brad Pitt. Probably a cool guy but he has always reminded me of a hamster. Cheeks filled with marbles.

  9. Hissyfit says:

    Why is he wearing that awful outfit when everyone is in suit? Anyway, I saw the photoshoot video of Details and dayum, he’s still hot!

  10. Andrea1 says:

    I will be seeing this on friday 🙂

  11. Chris2 says:

    I love Brad in skanger-Farrell mode! (I love Farrell in any mode)
    A bit of rough, you know? Then Brad brushes up so well for suave bashes and he’s delectable in another way….those wedding pix for example, dear Lord the gorgeousnesssss.
    By god ageing does good things to guys……I thought pre-Troy Brad was an utter vacancy, but he makes me swoon these days.

  12. PunkyMomma says:

    Obviously he borrowed Benny’s little hat.

  13. doofus says:

    not a good look. neither is that smarmy smile he’s working.

    my guess?…STONED. (and no shade for that, just for that terrible hat.)

  14. Longhorn says:

    Yeah, that hat has got to go. Same with the Rod Serling smirk on his face

  15. bettyrose says:

    OMG I’m sorry but I think he looks totally hot here ..and I’ve never been into his looks. The casual goofy but hot bod thing is really working for me.

  16. snowflake says:

    oh boo-boo, why do you have to hide your prettiness? you can be pretty, i’ll still respect you.

  17. FingerBinger says:

    I guess wearing raggedy looking hats is a thing with famous guys now.

  18. bns says:


  19. maddelina says:

    ugh…that’s all I got.

  20. lucy says:

    Those eyeglass frames are awful on him, and that mustache is doomed.

    The shiny jacket is the least of his sartorial offenses here!

  21. Lilacflowers says:

    What is that THING between his nose and lips? Please tell me that is for a role? Please?

    • lower-case deb says:

      some shaggy caterpillar ended there. waiting to transform into the rarest of butterflies.

      eh but, that’s really for that Malteser movie he’s shooting with Angelina.

    • truthSF says:

      It is. That 70’s porn stache is for the movie he’s making with his wife.

    • Kim1 says:

      Yes it was for his role as a writer in BTS,the film directed by his wife.The film takes place in the 70’s.Knowing Brad he will keep the “look” until he films his next role.Remember how long he rocked the long hair after WWZ.

  22. jane16 says:

    We are definitely going to see the movie, whole family.

  23. enastein says:

    God those Detail Photos are the most beautiful photos i have seen for brad. Hot & wild 50 never looked better. lucky bytch Angelina

  24. Div says:

    It’s just a screening, so he gets a pass

  25. sophie says:

    He looks like a slob, and since he has a movie coming out, here he goes with his “I’m a dad” routine, as if they are the only people in the world who have children, and the lame media laps it up as if this is ground breaking news and he hasn’t been saying the same thing for 10 years.

  26. Havana says:

    ” Dear Brad: stop trying to be Johnny Depp! YOU ARE COOLER THAN JOHNNY DEPP.”

    He wishes he was as cool as Johnny Depp. He wouldn’t copy his style so much if he was actually cooler than him. Brad is lame, Johnny is cool.

  27. ididn'tdoit says:

    All the other guys wore a suit and tie. Brad shows up looking like a dirty, smelly hobo.
    Too cool for school.

  28. yesitwasnecessary says:

    I don’t understand…what’s with the jaden smith/beiber squint he’s been sporting lately…? so derpy.
