Brad Pitt reveals secret behind his beard

Former Hollywood heart-throb Brad Pitt’s straggly beard has been distressing his legions of female fans for months and now the actor has finally given a reason for his homeless look – he’s too lazy to change it!

Currently in Britain to finish production duties on action flick ‘Kick-Ass’, the ‘Inglourious Basterds’ star was heard to say, “It’s boredom. No other reason than that.”

‘Kick-Ass’ sees Brad slipping further into the role of producer. After setting up a production company with then-wife Jennifer Aniston, Brad has helped produce a number of films including ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ and last year’s ‘The Time Traveller’s Wife’.

During his British visit, Brad and his beard also waxed lyrical about rapper Dizzee Rascal. The actor says, “That guy has got it. The kids are really into his stuff. I’ve worked out to that song ‘Bonkers’.”

Meanwhile, he didn’t have good things to say about his time in Glasgow back in his bachelor days. Brad tells, “I got involved with this girl. She happened to be the ex-girlfriend of a bit of a bad guy. I ended up having to get out of town because I was getting ‘that look’ from a guy behind a bar. It was heavy.”

Lucky for Brad then, he is currently based in Venice while partner Angelina Jolie films her new movie ‘The Tourist’ based on Patricia Cornwall’s famous novel.
