Brad Pitt is one of the most overrated male celebs look wise

I was watching Troy last night and don’t see what the hype is about. Ben Affleck looks better than him BACK THEN.

by Goopreply 7011/20/2020

Ah, but Brad gave better head.

by Goopreply 111/19/2020

Ben has a long head and no neck, brad has and exotic look.

by Goopreply 211/19/2020

Exotic look? He’s a hick from Missouri.

by Goopreply 311/19/2020

Yes, but at least he was deserving of the title Sexiest Man Alive unlike that horse-faced queen, Dan Levy.

by Goopreply 411/19/2020

You don’t see what the hype was about? Were you watching the fucking movie with sunglasses? I mean I don’t even like blondes but I can say the man was downright gorgeous in that movie. And he was never built better.

And Brad Pitt can’t act.

by Goopreply 611/19/2020

Just watch A River Runs Through It.

Brad is stunning.

by Goopreply 711/19/2020

As long as he’s washed and his hair is clean he looks great. He’s not everyone’s type but he sure is a lot of peoples type. I think he’s handsome

by Goopreply 811/19/2020

Still overrated

by Goopreply 911/19/2020

I would empty out my bank account, give up my house, surrender all of my possessions and live homeless for the rest of my life if I could reverse time and film a long, gratuitous love scene between Achilles and Patroclus played by 20 year old Garrett Hedlund.

He's good looking in a common sort of way. Now, Leo. That's a face for all seasons.

You're right OP. Hurts my eyes to look at him.

Not a fan of blonds in general and Pitt was too boyish looking for my taste for many years.

But he was, and is, gorgeous - absolutely gorgeous.

by Goopreply 1311/19/2020

I never thought he could act until I saw him in that Jesse James thing. He can act.

by Goopreply 1411/19/2020

nice looking, but waaaaaaaaaaay overblown publicized sex god, sex symbol status by the media and pundits...i can't think of any man in decades who was over promoted like this and many in the public bought it...

i mean come on, let's be real everyone: we ALL have seen countless drop dead breathtakingly beautiful men in our own little worlds and incredible body men that are all sexier, handsomer, better built than brad pitt... whether they are male models or bodybuilders or athletes or whatever....that's the truth.... because pitt is a actor he gets a "leg up" on these men and of course over all the "ordinary jobs" working men all around....

having lived in many places just around the united states (much less the rest of the world) and yes seen so many head turners, i don't think i would even give a second look at him if brad pitt walked past me on the street ESPECIALLY if it was brad pitt, office manager, not media hyped famous actor...

by Goopreply 1511/19/2020

Hes a terrible actor. Cringe.

by Goopreply 1611/19/2020

He was stunning in the early to mid 1990’s, in A River Runs Through It, Legends Of The Fall, and particularly in Meet Joe Black. His acting was very good in Meet Joe Black.

I have never been a Pitt fan but watched those three films this week, for the first time. He really was gorgeous and I thought he captured Death perfectly in Meet Joe Black. It was an excellent performance.

Who the fuck cares about a bunch of men on the street? I’m sure many of those guys you saw were enjoying their day off, then headed back to work the next day pushing a floor buffer in an office building. They’re. Not. Brad. Pitt. It takes a tremendous amount of moxie and self discipline to do what he’s done over four different goddamn decades. And when it comes down to the few men with the will and gumption to be a star and maintain it, he is one of the hottest we’ve ever seen.

R18.. you obviously don't understand what i was saying! because HE"S A ACTOR and the world worships celebrity, his looks and body are given greater status over regular joe working regular jobs! it's all media and hype and publicity and mass brainwashing of the masses hollywood is.. pitt is a recipient of it all...

the truth as i'll state again, their are plenty of men who are NOT actors or famous in anyway who are way better looking and built than brad pitt!

end of story....

by Goopreply 1911/19/2020

[quote] … HE"S A ACTOR …

No, he's a performer who stands in front of a camera in movies. He has never learnt the skills of a proper actor in the live theatre.

And anyway, he sexy and cute rather than handsome. He's forced to groom his hair in that Jennifer Aniston way to disguise his wide cheeks and weak jawline.

by Goopreply 2011/19/2020

[quote] He's forced to groom his hair in that Jennifer Aniston way

Who do you think taught him to groom his hair that way?

by Goopreply 2111/19/2020

I've never preferred blondes. Perhaps, because I am no gentleman. I didn't really even notice Brad Pitt in "Thelma and Louise". He seemed very generic then. However, the first time he rode his horse on screen in the ridiculous romance-novel-for-boys, "Legends of the Fall", I was smitten! He was the embodiment of golden youth, simply breath-taking. He was also gorgeous in "Meet Joe Black". Sadly, over the years, he has grown too old for me (though I am even older than him LOL). Now, he looks leathery, unclean, and seems sort of dumb. Dumb blondes are dandy when they are young but dumb, old blondes just aren't appealing.

by Goopreply 2211/19/2020

Can we make a list?

I'm adding Johnny Depp, and Leonardo DiCaprio. Even in their prime, I couldn't understand the appeal. I will admit that DiCaprio seems like he would be fun to hang out with, wealth and fame aside. But who knows? I'll never meet him. And if I could meet someone of that caliber, it wouldn't be DiCaprio.

by Goopreply 2311/19/2020

I've never found Johnny Depp or Leo DiCaprio the least bit attractive, even in their youth.

by Goopreply 2411/19/2020

Sometimes he looks really handsome and other times he looks like shit. His gotten better looking since leaving Medusa.

by Goopreply 2511/19/2020

How is he exotic?

by Goopreply 2811/19/2020

in regards to blond men, i would take easily over pitt anyday, blondes such as former 80s/90's chippendale charles wahlheim and actor shawn christian anyday!

by Goopreply 2911/19/2020

I attended a class at Mizzou with Brad Pitt. He had the spinster teacher wrapped around his little finger. He was gorgeous in person, day in, day out.

I understand he went to California during spring break in his final semester. He was six weeks from graduation. He called his parents and told them he was not coming back to Mizzou. Can you imagine what they were thinking? Obviously it worked out well for him. He was the Grand Marshall of the parade during Mizzou's homecoming about a decade or so ago. Some alumni were not happy about this. He wasn't a graduate, so he didn't deserve the honor, they said.

If only I knew he stripped naked, wearing a hood over his head, at sorority birthday parties, I would have figured some way to ask him to do it for me...

by Goopreply 3011/19/2020

About 1983 at Mizzou...

Oscar winner? I mean, WTF? Him???!!!

by Goopreply 3311/19/2020

OP, I could tell you things about our National Treasure Brad Pitt - like how he reads to the deaf or initially willing to fuck Gwyneth - but you would not believe me. It’s ok that you’re an asshole. Yeah. It is.

Instead, look at the clothes they sneak onto his body in movies. The Ocean’s Whatever franchise throws him in Gucci and you can jump back to Armani gracing his frame thirty hair color shades ago for Meet Joe Black.

by Goopreply 3411/19/2020

His natural nose was very unattractive and puggy. He was smart to get it fixed early on.

by Goopreply 3511/19/2020

He's hot and seems to be a nice guy. Not overrated.

by Goopreply 3611/19/2020

He's gorgeous, let's not fuck around about that. Not to my taste but he's still a beautiful man.

If you don't think he's much of an actor, try the Jesse James thing. I was shocked at how good he was in it.

by Goopreply 3711/19/2020

There was a term in the early 2000s referring to him as the “Pittgod” as if he were some version of the trinity. There was even an early website devoted to the Pittgod.

by Goopreply 3811/19/2020

Dropping out of college six weeks before graduating is stupid. So you had a great time in LA and want to be an actor, fine. Nothing to stop you from going home, finishing the degree your parents paid for, and then heading back to Hollywood in June.

by Goopreply 3911/19/2020

I definitely disagree with OP's assessment. I think he is one of the sexiest stars to ever grace the screen. In his younger years he was simply pretty and sexy. Now he's got the perfect amount of aging pretty boy going for him. In IMO there's nothing sexier than a pretty boy aging nicely.

by Goopreply 4011/19/2020

The exotic Brad Pitt.

by Goopreply 4111/19/2020

He was terrible on Dallas, season 11 (1987-1988).

by Goopreply 4211/19/2020

I agree, OP. AWG. Meh.

by Goopreply 4311/19/2020

Brad Pitt is one of the sexiest men alive. It is not just his looks that have kept him in the spotlight for almost four decades while other seemingly handsome actors have disappeared . He is talented, charismatic, witty and self deprecating. The Hollywood community loves him and he has fans of both sexes in red and blue states. He is universally loved and he is still the go to name when measuring a mans standard of beauty. Deal with it!

by Goopreply 4411/19/2020

r44 = fanfrau.

by Goopreply 4511/19/2020

The world begs to differ, OP. You are an antisocial with warped perception and glaucoma. It's entirely your perception problem, thus try not to belittle the guy's beauty, fat dump OP.

by Goopreply 4611/19/2020

He can clean up nicely

by Goopreply 4711/19/2020

[quote]He is talented, charismatic, witty and self deprecating.

Brad Pitt wasn't the greatest actor for many years. However, at some point, he started improving. Since then, he has had a few moments of "brilliance." He learned while on the job.

[quote] He has never learnt the skills of a proper actor in the live theatre.

The pretension is dripping off of this post like bitter molasses.

Live theater actors aren't the only actors. Acting for the camera is different than acting on stage. While some are good at doing both, not everyone can handle that. (Ignoring the fact that not everyone has the look at least in America where that plays into it ... )

I'd say theater actors (and no I won't spell it with an 're because I'm avoiding that level of pretension) have the potential to become great film and television actors BUT only after they train to get rid of many of the quirks of live theater that do not work on camera.

There are also quite a few natural actors who somehow are able to dazzle audiences but have very little formal training. They just have a "gift." Not having that formal training doesn't make them any less of an actor.

by Goopreply 4811/19/2020

Brad Pitt is certainly no Errol Flynn!

by Goopreply 4911/19/2020

[quote]Since then, he has had a few moments of "brilliance." He learned while on the job.

Please mention these moments. Seriously, I'm waiting with bated breath.

R48 Are you talking about someone on stage with a live audience?

Or are you talking about someone on a movie screen who has been coached, groomed and had all their mistakes edited out?

by Goopreply 5111/20/2020

Not really.

I agree he’s overrated, and I’ll add George Clooney and Colin Firth to the list. Fraus and basic bitches love them, and they always come up in articles/conversations as a kind of lazy shorthand for most gorgeous man. Ooh, I wish George Clooney would whisk me away for a night of passion! Yawn. Yeah they’re handsome, but so what. I don’t find them sexy at all.

by Goopreply 5411/20/2020

Misssouri Trash. He looks like a Bull Dog.

by Goopreply 5511/20/2020

I always thought it would be an excellent PR move for him to return to Mizzou for a semester and get his degree. Plays right into the "nice midwestern guy" trope.

by Goopreply 5611/20/2020

R56. Perfect that would highlight Angelina's "education".

by Goopreply 5711/20/2020

Never have forgiven him for that egregious attempt he made at a Belfast accent for THE DEVIL’S OWN.

He is pretty and charming, but that won’t exonerate all faults. And as a moviestar, his faults are on film and record forever.

by Goopreply 5811/20/2020

R54, George Clooney has not aged well at all and does not have Brads physique or build. Also Clooney while witty and talented has a frat boy quality mind set that turns some women off. Colin Firth is not even in the same league. Your comparing apples to oranges.

by Goopreply 5911/20/2020

Ben Affleck? Surely you jest. Beady eyed, gigantic head, short legs long torso no ass....and hair plugs...how many times have you heard someone describe themselves as well “I am no Ben Affleck” when discussing their looks? Exactly.......Brad Pitts name is the name most synonymous with good looks. However that may soon change now since he is aging now....

by Goopreply 6011/20/2020

People see Brad as a trustworthy guy who isn't the typical Hollywood sort. Plus I think a lot of people took his side (justifiably so) in the Brad/Angelina saga and saw that he was treated like shit by her.

by Goopreply 6111/20/2020

george clooney? looks like a hardware store manager

ben affleck: looks like a high school coach of girl's basketball

colin firth: looks like a dock worker at best....

robert pattison?: looks like a guy who works at a used record store in a shady part of town..

i could go on and on and on about the so called 'handsomest men and sexiest men in the world" because and only because the celebrity worship world worships fame and fame careers (i.e. actors, singers, athletes)..

it's amazing that there are COUNTLESS COUNTLESS incredible looking men and actors who yes CAN ACT as well and you'll never hear from them and they'll never make it...

truly TRULY hollywood is ALL who you know and how you play the game.. shockingly so!...

by Goopreply 6211/20/2020

[quote] i could go on and on and on about the so called 'handsomest men and sexiest men in the world"

Please do, your comparisons are really funny and spot-on.

Firth as a dock-worker. My sides!

What's wrong with looking like a "dock worker"? Yum!

I saw the Playgirl photos once (A friend scooped it up before it was removed from the racks). His hard-on looked pretty nice.

Every person I've met from Missouri (except St. Louis and Kansas City) had been down to earth and very friendly. I can't imagine Brad Pitt was different while he lived there.

by Goopreply 6711/20/2020

He looks wise.

by Goopreply 6811/20/2020

There was a sweet interview with Pitt (and DiCaprio) were he described what shit he pulled when he was starting out in Hollywood to get a line as an extra in a movie. DiCaprio (as always) dodged the question and just giggled like an idiot. Pitt really is down to earth and a good sport. DiCaprio never answers any personal questions and is usually just a big arrogant asshole. I also liked that he admitted he was a mess and had an alcohol problem. Not the usual PR bs that he was exhausted or whatever. Takes balls to admit you have a problem for someone of his status.
