You remember when Brad Pitt was dating Jennifer Aniston? Seems like such a long time ago, doesn’t it? Well like a true trendsetter Brad was occasionally growing a long full beard even then, in the early 2000’s, when no one else would.
Here’s Brad Pitt at the premiere of “Full Frontal” back in 2002 with a powerful scruffy mane:
Good friend George Clooney referred to his co-star in the movie as “here comes the hobo”. Something good old George probably forgot as he’s been known to grow a medium sized full beard from time to time nowadays.[Keep an eye around the 0:40 second mark]
Over the years Brad was criticized for his messy and scruffy beard, especially when he let his goatee go lose and try to control it with couple of displaced beads. Media compared him to Jack Sparrow and have even started rumor mill that the Brangeline super-couple is separating …
Well, that eventually turned out to be true, but it was not because of Brad Pitt’s beard.
Brad experiments with different beard styles even today, but it seems like his favorite one is a well groomed faded Van Dyke, like the one he had on “The Ellen Show”.
If you’re going for one of the many Brad Pitt beard looks, I suggest you also educate yourself on the matter of beard growing before you start, as you’ll need to know how to maintain the overall healthy appearance of your new manly mane.
