Brad Pitt Gets Scruffy For 'World War Z'
Brad Pitt, 47, sported a new look this weekend in Malta, where he celebrated Father's Day with wife Angelina Jolie, 36, and their six kids — Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.
After hitting the red carpet at this year's Cannes Film Festival with a clean-shaven, youthful look, Pitt is letting the scruff come back in for his new project, World War Z, in which he plays a fictionalized version of the book's author, Max Brooks. Brooks inserts himself into the narrative as a writer for the United Nations Postwar Commission, publishing various controversial reports about the world war against the zombies ten years after humans narrowly defeat the brain-sucking monsters.
While in Malta, Pitt and Jolie also went out for a gourmet dinner where they sat at an outdoor table with a stunning view and drank five glasses of wine — each! — with dinner. "They were very, very romantic … like a couple in love," an observer told Us Weekly. Not surprisingly, however, they left the restaurant "a little tipsy." It wasn't Pitt's first appearance at the fine eatery. He dined there when he was filming Troy in 2003 with wife at the time, Jennifer Aniston.
World War Z, directed by Marc Forster of Quantum of Solace and also starring Ed Harris and Matthew Fox, is slated for release in 2012.
