If it was up to Brad Pitt...he’d still have long hair! The actor chopped off his shoulder-length locks in the fall, and showed off his short ‘do at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday and Producers Guild Awards on Sunday.
“It’s for a part,” he told E! News. “It’s not a choice!” The 50-year-old has been a bit M.I.A. from Hollywood lately, as he’s been filming Fury in England. Meanwhile, his fiance, Angelina Jolie, was absent from the weekend’s events, as she’s in Australia working on her next directorial project, Unbroken.
Brad made his award show rounds this weekend for 12 Years a Slave, the film which he produced and had a small part in. On Saturday, his costar, Lupita Nyong’o, gave him a shout-out while accepting the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture. “My dad, he was the first person I called when I got this role,” she explained. “I said, ‘Daddy, do you know Brad Pitt? I’m going to be in a movie with him.’ And he said, ‘I don’t know him personally, but I’m glad you’ve got a job!’ So am I. So am I.”
“She’s very special,” Brad gushed of the up-and-coming actress. “Very special young lady. We’re going to see great things from her.”
