During an interview, Brad Pitt said what he thought about what it means to be a man. This happened after the two-time Oscar winner wore a “linen skirt” on the red carpet in Germany. When asked about his “fashion-forward” choice, Pitt said, “We’re all going to die, so let’s mess it up.”
Pitt, who was born in Oklahoma and grew up in Missouri, said that Clint Eastwood-style masculinity was too strong and out of date. Pitt said that it’s hard to be someone other than who you are. One has to realize that, at least where he grew up, one is more like Clint Eastwood’s character: one keeps everything inside, one is strong, one can handle anything, and one doesn’t show weakness. He sees this in his father and in older performers, and it stresses him out…
After making these statements, Pitt was criticized on social media right away by fans who thought it was all a publicity stunt to fix his image after his ex-wife Angelina Jolie sued him for abusing her and two of their kids on a private jet ride six years ago.
On Twitter, the hashtag #BradPittIsAnAbuser was popular, and “real men” who were offended by his Clint Eastwood joke also said bad things about him. He says, “Brad Pitt.” Tyler Durden made him in 1999. He is one of the coolest characters ever. In 2022, to walk the red carpet in a skirt. This is a sign of the decline of Western society, said one man on Twitter. Real men need to stand up now more than ever. Don’t catch this illness among feminists.
Josh L. said in response to Pitt’s comments about masculinity that some people ran into the Twin Towers on 9/11 while others ran away. Guys who fought in Europe and the Pacific…these are guys who didn’t complain much, if at all, and did a lot. He is tired of these “metrosexuals” who think it’s so cool to change the way people think about what men and women are.
Someone else said that a man who wants to wear a skirt is not a good person. To keep society going, you need strong, manly men who can do things, not girly boys who can’t do anything. Several men were very upset by what Pitt said.
In a 2019 interview, Brad Pitt said that his movie, Ad Astra, was about the problem of toxic masculinity and how it hurts people. Pitt said that what James Gray and he were talking about was the idea of what it means to be a man. Both of them grew up in a time when they were expected to be strong. This is important, but it’s also a wall because it hides some of the things they’re ashamed of. Everyone hides and carries their own pain and wounds.
