Brad Pitt shaved his beard for film role

Jan 20 2014, 3:34am CST | by

Brad Pitt has had to shave his beard off for a film role.

The 50-year-old actor showed off his new look at the Producers Guild Awards at the The Beverly Hilton Hotel last night (01.19.14) but insisted he didn't want to get rid of his facial hair.

He told E! News: "It's for a part. It's not a choice!"

The '12 Years a Slave' star, who first debuted the look at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last week, has been sporting a long beard for months and it's not the first time he's had to get rid of his facial hair for a film role.

In 2011, he had to be clean-shaven for his part in 'Moneyball' and it's not yet known which role he has had to sacrifice his beard for this time.

Brad, who produced '12 Years a Slave' alongside Anthony Katagas, also spoke about co-star Lupita Nyong'o at the ceremony last night, who mentioned him in her acceptance speech for her Outstanding Supporting Actress award.

He said: "She's very special. [A] very special young lady. We're going to see great things from her."

Brad gushed about the awards season success of the film, saying: "It's great. It also ensures that more people are going to see it. And in my mind this is a film that only comes along once in a decade and everyone should see this. It's that good. It's moving, it's inspirational. It's why I wanted to go into film in the first place."

Brad and the producers of '12 Years a Slave' were tied with the makers of 'Gravity' for the Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures award at the ceremony.

‘At this point, Jennifer Aniston does not want children,’ Us Weekly’s source claims

Aug 29 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Jennifer Aniston went dark after the news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s wedding broke yesterday morning. Whatever interviews you see with her today were done BEFORE the news broke. Just FYI. “Going dark” isn’t a bad strategy at this point, but it sucks that she has to do that when she was in the middle of promoting Life of Crime. And yes, while I’m no Aniston-loonie, it’s unfair that many people are going “Aw, poor Jen” in the wake of Brangelina’s a ...

Aug 22 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Do you guys ever look at Liv Tyler’s Instagram? Go here to see it. She has a really adorable, fluffy little dog (it looks like a King Charles Spaniel) and she’s not constantly doing selfies. But! Since she went to work on The Leftovers, she’s been posting a lot of photos of her costar Justin Theroux. She’s been talking about him in interviews too, telling Andy Cohen that she was “distracted” by his bulge. I’m including some of her IG photos in this p ...

Jon Hamm talks about Ferguson, Missouri: ‘It’s a bad situation all around’

Aug 20 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I saw that a few people were questioning why Brad Pitt has not issued any statements about all of the horrible, awful, incomprehensible stuff that’s gone down in his home state, Missouri. I believe Brad probably has a lot to say, but Brad doesn’t want to be the guy who jumps into a messy situation and acts like his opinion is more important or more noteworthy than anyone else’s. Plus, Brad isn’t doing press right now (Fury doesn’t come out until October). But Jon Hamm i ...
