Brad Pitt knows how to make a strong first impression.
The 57-year-old actor may have missed the Oscars red carpet in 2021, but he still made an impression while presenting the Best Supporting Actress award to “Minari” star Youn Yuh-jung.
Pitt wore a classic tuxedo and swung his long hair back into a dishevelled man bun at the nape of his neck, exposing some blond tendrils in the centre.
The casual look quickly went viral on social media.
One person tweeted, “I did a hair mask in the shower today, took a ‘glow’ vitamin, and I really don’t think my hair looks as nice and shiny as Brad Pitt’s low key man bun.”
“This is the official campaign kickoff for Brad Pitt to hold the man bun and put back some 90s Brad lewks,” another said. WE’RE GOING TO ROOT FOR YOU.”
The ponytail wasn’t the only thing that went viral during the “Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood” star’s appearance; she also swooned over Pitt during her acceptance speech.
“Finally, Mr. Brad Pitt. “It’s nice to meet you,” said the 73-year-old. Yuh-jung caught his elbow as she finished, and the two shared a tender moment backstage.
Pitt broke up with married girlfriend Nicole Poturalski late last year, so there’s a chance for an afterparty.
