Brad Pitt, 51, steps out at LAX with a salt & pepper beard: would you hit it?


I was sitting here, trying to figure out why Brad Pitt looks so hot in these photos. What is it? I think it’s because he’s actually wearing clothes that fit his still-lean frame, which means he doesn’t look like he’s dressed in Hobo Chic (which has been his style for too long). The all-black looks good on him. And what else? Is it the grey beard? Y’all know I enjoy some facial hair, so that might be what makes Brad so sexy in these photos. That beard looks nice on him. Mm. I could do without the hat though.

These pics are of Brad arriving at LAX to take a flight to France. It feels like we haven’t even seen Brad in months and months, but that’s mostly because Brad and Angelina were nowhere to be seen during the awards season. Which, incidentally, was one of the most boring awards seasons in recent memory. I’m not saying that Brangelina have to put in appearances to make it interesting, but if we don’t get Brangelina, you better give us Julia Roberts, George Clooney and some other major A-listers.

So, what’s Brad up to these days? It’s still believed that Brad will be playing the lead in Africa, the Angelina Jolie-directed bio-pic of Richard Leakey. Before then, Brad will likely start production on The Big Short, with Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Steve Carrel. Apparently, that’s supposed to start this month in New Orleans. The premise of the film is very interesting – it’s about the handful of people who successfully predicted the market crash of 2008 and ended up shorting the market for a major profit. Brad has also signed on to a “romantic thriller” set during World War II, which will be directed by Robert Zemeckis. God knows when that will start.

      LOL Amen Sister! All day, everyday.

    • Sarah says:

      Yep. All day.

      • WardLittell says:

        Oh lord, yes please. I think he gets better and better, couldn’t bear the young version. The Colin Farrell-mode really works on him.
        (I reckon I’ll be propositioning derelicts soon; the guys I ‘admire’ look more and more well-worn. Brad’s the youngest by far. Yikes. )

    • beep says:

      No, I feel like this is a situation similar to #TheDress. I see something different when I look at these photos and it’s not hot.

      • mimif says:

        Lol beep

      • doofus says:

        I guess we’re in the minority, but I don’t see “hot”, either. I see “Rick from the Walking Dead” in that top photo.

        give me “Ocean’s 11″ Pitt and we’ll talk.

        (I will say, however, that he looks much better than he has been looking in that all-beige monstrosity of an outfit. the black suits him much better.)

      • mimif says:

        doofus, Ricky Grimes is smoking! Also, have I done this to you yet?

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m backing you up mimif–Rick Grimes is HOT.

      • Kiddo says:

        mimif, you never stop.

      • mimif says:

        THANK YOU. The Ricktator’s hotness is directly proportionate to his massively huge beard that’s taken on a life of its own, right? I like his sweaty tendrils too. Sh-t. I guess I just like dirty boys. Take that BNA FN! 😜

      • doofus says:

        OMG…mimif…I couldn’t turn up the sound but I don’t think I need to…I was laughing with just the “closed-captioned” lyrics!

        I think I’ll probably die laughing if I turn the sound up!

        oh, and you really need to get over it, gurrrlll…


      • mimif says:

        You must watch with sound immediately…La jiggy jar jar doooo!
        Also, I wang you to know (lol I’m no longer correcting typos) that I have a pic of Ricky that will win you over. I just have to find it, after I’m done watching this:

      • FLORC says:

        Last episode was hot without his shirt.
        And Brad? Hell yes!

      • moodygirl says:

        I have never understood the appeal.

      • AntiSocialButterfly says:


        Rick “Delish” Grimes is taaaasty. Also, thanks for that vid… now I’m gonna be singing, “durr durr durr dee durr” all day, and getting sideeye from my kids.

      • Lahdidahbaby says:

        Exactly, beep. I’m with you. I can see that he looks pretty good there, but I would never have hit it, young or now, because he’s just not interesting enough to be sexy to me.

      • Jib says:

        I see something different too. I see an incredibly handsome man who does everything he can to look ugly and like he needs a bath immediately. And it works.

    • Tarsha says:

      Agreed. All day every day any day. hot, Hot, HOT!

  2. LAK says:

    I love Michael Lewis’s financial reporting.

    Did you know that his book ‘Liar’s Poker’ was the source material for WALL STREET.

    I’m still annoyed that Aaron Sorkin veto’d ‘Flash Boys’ on the grounds that there are no name Asian superstars. (courtesy of Sony Hack)

    On a different note, though Keanu is my forever Dong, a detour on Brad won’t go amiss.

  3. GingerCrunch says:

    My poor hubby is lamenting all the gray showing up in his beard, but I LOVE it. Yeah, I’m a girl of a certain age, but on a well-groomed, handsome guy, I find it verrrrry attractive. Brad could lose that stupid pork-pie hat, tho. HATE it.

  4. Nev says:


  5. Jane says:

    No. He is so gross. His lips are disgusting.

  6. JH says:

    All day, everyday. Der.

  7. Dee Kay says:

    I will always be a fan of Brad Pitt and think he looks absolutely amazing for his age, but my niece (sophomore in college) asked me recently, in all seriousness, “Was Brad Pitt hot a long time ago?” To her knowledge (meaning, in her lifetime or as long as she’s been aware that hot guys exist — let’s say 7-8 years), Pitt has *never* been hot! It’s like some historical fact, like Germany used to be divided into East and West.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Lol. I think I’m the complete opposite, because for me, there are no big name YOUNG male celebrities that I like. I mean, there are some pretty ones, but I can’t look at pretty ones who can’t act. It turns me right off. Like I never got into Robert Pattinson all that much…..

    • Gracie says:

      Hahahaha! Your comment reminded me once I was in cinema and they were showing the trailer of 12 years slave, Fassbender and Cumberbatch got two rounds of noises from the audience (women, I may add) respectively and Brad Pitt got nothing! In what universe does Fassbender and Cumberbatch got cat howling and Brad Pitt doesn’t? Then I realised I was old, lol.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        To be fair, they had Brad looking ROUGH in that movie. Which, as a dude who built houses in the deep South for YEARS…..I think it was spot on, and I’m glad he wasn’t pretty and kept looking, lol.

        But I can’t see how anyone could whoop for Fassy in that movie. Now I’m someone who found Ralph Fiennes sexy as Amon Goethe in Schindler’s List–to give you an idea. But Michael F. should’ve WON for that movie. From the minute he was introduced on screen, he made my stomach roll. I’ve never had a reaction to a movie like I have with 12 Years A Slave, and especially to Michael. I was cringing and shrinking away every time he even went near Lupita/Patsy.

    • maeliz says:

      Amazing for his age? What are guys his age supposed to look like? I know plenty older that look better. My dad is 66 and has all his hair and none is gray, he has no wrinkles.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I want to live where you are, because 90% of the men where I live start the wrinkles, the grey hair, etc after 30…..but I think it’s due to heavy drinking, and all of the meth lab busts….lol.

      • Lady D says:

        My big brother started greying at 16.
        LOL at “all of the meth lab busts.”

      • Artemis says:

        Uh, he looks amazing for a white man with a busy life (sleep deprivation, stress), lots of travel (jetlag, and due to his job, being under public scrutiny most of the time. That type of lifestyle will probably cause sleep deprivation and stress which ages you quicker.

        Plus they say that kids age you too as you spend a lot of energy on raising them. He’s got fricking 6! He also smokes.

        Money can buy you a lot but it won’t buy you youth. He still looks good for a white man. Compared to Sean Penn (Pitt is only a few years younger), it’s like a piece of beef jerky to Pitt’s filet mignon.

        Your dad must have great genes because people like that are the exception, not the rule.

      • Anne tommy says:

        What the hell is wrong with grey hair? Silver foxes….but brad, no, not now, not back in the day. Looks good for a white man? Not Sure why colour is a factor.

      • Esmom says:

        maeliz, check out a Little League game in any suburban town and you’ll see what guys his age typically look like. Balding, overweight, maybe broken capillaries from too much drinking, sweats or Dad jeans. Of course I know a few guys who are fit and dress in clothing manufactured after 2000 but honestly the moms look a million times better than their husbands.

        If a dad who looked like Brad showed up, heads would turn so fast necks would be fractured.

      • snowflake says:

        @ vc i wanna live there too! brad is hott! always dong

    • Jib says:

      Virgilia, the Henry Cavill from the Tudors – almost too beautiful to be real!! Makes me swoon!!

  8. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    It’s because he is not wearing all tan/beige clothing. God. My dad wears the SAME stuff that Brad does. I don’t get it. It doesn’t look good. EVER.

    • mimif says:

      Your dad is hot.

    • Kiddo says:

      I feel like he buys the adult version of young kids clothes (forget the brand, but have tags for kids to put them together) which always match, except.with.Brad.they.don’t.always.match. Plus they looked pulled from the bottom of the hamper.

      It just needs more scarves and then we have Depptitude.

  9. Jenni says:


  10. Andrea1 says:

    Yes! I would hit it all year round!
    Angie is one lucky girl as is Brad also…

  11. Artemis says:

    He never did it for me but he has his hot moments. This is one of them.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      He was WAY too pretty when he was younger. But once he hit forty…..wowza! It’s the same with Jensen Ackles—he was way too pretty in the early seasons of Supernatural, but once he hit season 5…good Lord.

      • Artemis says:

        Yeah no. It was Johnny or Brad back when I was like 10 and it was always Depp for me. I don’t like Brad’s type of physical beauty in general. I like my men dark and broody.

        He was so polished back in the day (even before Aniston turned him into a Ken doll). When he looked scruffy it seemed so calculated and unreal. When he has his scruffy moments now (e.g. the goatee, beard, his onesie period), it seems more him and that’s what’s attractive. Plus yeah, age made him less ‘pretty boy’ which is great :)

    • lucy2 says:

      That’s how I feel – he had a few movies back in the day where he looked great, but I’ve never had a thing for him.

  12. BNA FN says:

    Yes!, yes!, yes!, yes! And again and again, and again. Sorry Angie!.

  13. Tracy says:

    One word. Deodorant. The man just stinks.

  14. mimif says:

    @Tracy, I heard he smells amazingly.

  15. sophie says:

    No. He always looks like a bum with body odor.

    • BNA FN says:

      JaLaw says he smells amazing. She should know, she was standing right next to him at the Oscars 2014. Eat your hearts out haters, Brad looks amazing, OMG, look at that body and that strut.

      @jenny, @ Veronica Costello, @ Tracy, @ Mimif, @ Sofie, and Tracking, it has been 10+ years, time to let it go. JA is happy with her man, be happy for her and stop following Brad and Angie news. LET IT GO!!

      • mimif says:

        It was her bff that said he smelled amazing.

        “Brad Pitt smells amazing, like nothing I’ve ever smelled,” she reveals. “Eventually we ask what cologne he’s wearing and he tells us, ‘I don’t wear cologne, it’s just my musk I guess.’ I have to choose not to believe him because it would just be unfair to mankind.”

        But maybe she was misremembering again.

      • eva says:

        Jennifer Lawrence on smelling Brad Pitt and why Miley Cyrus told her to ‘get it together’

        “We ran into Brad Pitt,” Jen continued. “And she was like, ‘Get Brad Pitt over here!’, and I was like, ‘I can’t do that!’ And she was like, ‘Yes, you can!’ So what was a girl to do?

        “I just went, ‘Hey Brad Pitt!’ He came over. He smelled like sandalwood. It was unbelievable!”

      • mimif says:

        Wait a minute, why am I being included in your round up? I luff Brad. He’s so Chacun a son gout!

      • Maya says:

        And Helen Mirren said that Brad is smells divine.

      • Kiddo says:

        Brian Williams said he was there when Brad Pitt’s pits blew a military helicopter out of the sky. True Story.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I read the rumors that he stank came from him not showering while he was in college……which I totally believe. I don’t know why, but some guys just DON’T like taking showers. I would regularly yell at my twin to go shower. My 12 year old brother has to be forced to take a shower once a week, otherwise he won’t do it.

      But now, I don’t think he stinks. Mainly because he’s got a teenage son. And you can’t make your teenager take a shower when you (the parent) won’t even do it. And I don’t see how he stinks in this…..I only think someone looks like they stink when they’re dressed like Kid Rock or Johnny D (sometimes)….his clothes looks clean, not wrinkled, and he’s groomed.

      • mimif says:

        My bf does not shower daily and I love the way he smells. Dude is 50 and he has amazing skin & hair too, I swear it’s because he hasn’t bleached himself into oblivion.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Well, I wish I had your boyfriend’s genes or whatever. I’m someone who needs to shower at least once a day, twice a day if I’m being honest. It sucks. I can shower right before I go to bed, lotion and deodorize to my heart’s content, but when I get up in the morning, my pitts are like “show me some love, Virgilia!”……I could only get away with not showering every day when I was like 10.

      • Kiddo says:

        VC, use cornstarch baby powder at night.

    • Tarsha says:

      Nope, he is hot. Always looks hot and like he smells like faint sweat mixed with aftershave. The guy is hotter than a stove hotplate.

  16. Beth says:

    I think he looks the best he has been in a long time, but as to the question, no thank you.

  17. tracking says:

    Beard looks good, but dude Blech. While you’re at it, lose the stupid hat. Noone but Indiana Jones can pull that off.

    • mia07 says:

      A lot of the stuff he wears is from Angie (the hat, necklace) & the kids (the belt buckle, the beads)- he clearly dresses to please himself, which is healthy. Beard or not, he looks pretty and happy to me (which is hot), but that is Angie’s business :) I hope he is going to the vineyard to get that red out this year The rose was INCREDIBLE and the white very, very good.

      • Maya says:

        Creepy to wear things given from your loved ones?????

        I am so so glad that millions no billions of people don’t agree with you and wears gifts from loved ones.

  18. AntiSocialButterfly says:

    Yes… but with a 2″x 4″ only.

  19. Catelina says:

    I’m so excited about the big short, he’s producing and playing a supporting role, where he has done a lot of his best work. And the book was super interesting. As for the question, yes always. He looks great- especially his body. Major props for that. Especially in Fury last year- wow! But even without that I respect him so much as an actor and producer and he just seems like such a solid guy. He and Angie are the biggest class acts in Hollywood.10 years of loonieness and they’ve never given me a reason to take off the tin hat.

  20. Maya says:

    So you attack commentators here for writing positive stuff about people and yet you call us loons????

  21. GoOnGirl says:

    I’d hit it and quit it and keep him near me with a rope and chain, if given the chance. Cause this man is truly a keeper.

  22. Kim1 says:

    I’d hit it everyday and twice on Sunday IF he would shave the beard.I hate beards.

  23. MrsBPitt says:

    Would I hit that…YYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • WardLittell says:

      This is really bad form, but I don’t know how else to catch yr eye: re the thread last night, see Stephen Fry on Irish TV, online surely as Fry link, on a Hitchens-like demolition job. Intrvwr Gay Byrne; sorry crap @ links.

      • MrsBPitt says:


        Thanks, I watched the interview on youtube! Fry definitely Hitch-slapped Byrne!!!

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @MrsBPitt …

      I’d hit it hard, I’d hit it soft … I’d HIT it! :)

  24. Hullubaloooo says:

    F**k no. Gross.

  25. Darkladi says:

    Forever yes.

  26. naturegirl says:

    Look at the pic. Of Leo and ask me that again..
    No I kidding. No need to ask he is my movie star boyfriend . Have been since I saw him bring Angie coffee and a flower in Mr. & Mrs smith.

  27. Tarsha says:

    Yes. Every day, any day, all day, every which way. The guy is hotter than a hotplate.

  28. ilovesunnydaze says:

    I once got into a limosine after BP was in it. REEKED of BO! I’ve always got a stinky guy vibe from him after that.

  29. Lucky Charm says:

    Yes, I’d hit it. And then hit it again. Then hit it in the shower, getting all sudsy and loved up, then hit it again!

    Yes, yes I would.

    Dye your beard too or shave it, starting to look silly.
