Brad Pitt arrived at the 25th Annual Producers Guild Awards on Saturday night, where he showed off his newly chopped locks.

Brad Pitt's Haircut

The last time Pitt, 50, walked a red carpet, his hair was pulled back in a ponytail. At the World War Z premiere over the summer, Pitt’s blond tresses fell past his shoulders. In the movie the actor is currently filming, his role required him to ditch the long hair. At the PGA Awards, his head was shaved on the sides and the hair on top of his head perfectly coiffed.

"It's for a part," Pitt explained about his do to E! News. "It's not a choice!"

The hairstyle is most likely for Pitt’s upcoming World War II movie, which has director David Ayer at the helm. In the feature, Pitt plays Wardaddy, a U.S. Army sergeant who leads his men into Nazi Germany in a Sherman tank to take out the enemy. Also starring in the film, which was once titled Fury, are Shia LeBeouf, Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal and Michael Peña.

Although Pitt only had a small role in the Oscar-nominated 12 Years a Slave, he played a major part in getting the Steve McQueen film made. While at the PGA Awards, Pitt had ample praise for the film’s breakout star Lupita Nyong’o.

"She's very special," Pitt told E!. "Very special young lady. We're going to see great things from her."

12 Years of Slave is still in theaters world wide. Pitt's Ayers-directed film is slated for a November 2014 release.
