When asked about why he chose to wear the skirt, Pitt told Variety, “I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s mess it up.”
This is not the first time Pitt commented on men wearing skirts.
In 2004, while promoting his film “Troy,” Pitt explained, “Men will be wearing skirts by next summer. That’s my prediction and proclamation. The film answers to both genders. We were going for realism and Greeks wore skirts all the time then.”
While some praised Pitt for his fashion statement, other critics were not so kind.

I'm all for wearing clothing no matter it's 'gender' or whatever but Brad Pitt looks like absolute shit in this skirt, someone has to say it. pic.twitter.com/FUiOH5RRVR

I was going to go see the new Brad Pitt movie.
It's just too much of a stretch to think of him as an action hero when he was just walking around in a skirt.

During the interview with Variety, Pitt also commented on his latest film “Bullet Train.”
The outlet explained that the movie stars Pitt as “a hitman who has to fight his way through a train filled with dangerous killers, played by actors like Bad Bunny, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry.”
Touching on the stunt work in the film, Pitt explained, “I try to get out of it. I love a stuntman.”
He continued, “This one was action-comedy, something I’ve never done before. David and I had always been big fans of Jackie Chan. We’d been talking about him for decades. He’s kind of our Buster Keaton. He’s so talented and underrated even. Just to do something in that direction was what was really appealing to me.”
The film is expected to be released on Friday.
