We’re pretty much continually marveling at the transformative power of makeup (under eye circles, be gone!) — and no one does it better than the actual professional makeup artists on movie sets. Case in point: Brad Pitt’s totally gray hair in the trailer for his new Netflix movie War Machine.
The film, which premieres on Netflix on May 26th, is described as a “quasi-comedy,” and tells the story of real-life General Stanley McCrystal, the man who led the U.S. campaign in Afghanistan under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama. It’s an adaptation of Michael Hasting’s 2012 non-fiction bookThe Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan (Hastings himself is a notable journalist).
But enough talk, let’s get a look at that trailer.
See? Pitt is certifiably Clooney-esque with this mop of gray. And we’re not complaining. Dude looks GOOD! Oh, and hair fixations aside, we’re also pretty excited for the movie.
As most people in the known universe have probably heard, Pitt has mostly been in the news lately due to his split from wife Angelina Jolie. They released a joint-statement this past January stating that their focus at this time is their children and healing as a family. Jolie also recently got emotional in an interview with Good Morning America, where she reiterated that they “will always be a family,” married or not.
Sources also said that Pitt missed the Oscars this year because he’s been busy at his Los Angeles studio, sculpting.
Glad to hear Pitt’s working it out through creativity, and we’re seriously sending the very best vibes to the whole Jolie-Pitt clan.
Now let’s re-watch the newly-minted silver fox in that trailer again.
