Brad Pitt is having some fun with fashion!

The 58-year-old actor has revealed a bold new style on the red carpet for his new film Bullet Train, and on Tuesday he shared why he's now willing to push the fashion envelope further than ever before.

"We're all going to die, so let's mess it up," Pitt told Variety's Marc Malkin when asked why he chose to wear a loose-fitting brown linen skirt last month on a red carpet in Berlin.

According to British Vogue, Pitt also anticipated that men would add skirts to their wardrobe as far back as 2004 while promoting his movie Troy.

"Men will be wearing skirts by next summer," Pitt said at the time, per the outlet. "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."

The Academy Award-winning actor was also photographed by famed portrait photographer Mark Seliger in a variety of dresses while appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone in 1999.
