Brad Pitt's Hair In Burn After Reading

Yes, I am a movie buff.  Of course I like to study the hair in the films to determine if new hair, fashion and accessory trends are going to follow.

I also like to check out the acting of some of my favorite performers such as Brad Pitt, George Clooney and John Malkovich who are all in the 'Burn After Reading' film.

Even though it is definitely a quirky and odd film, 'Burn After Reading' is wonderful.  Most people who see it either love it or hate.  It's that kind of movie.  Of course you would expect it to be quirky because it is a Coen Brothers film.

I loved it because so many of the actors play characters so different than normal.  Tilda Swinton who I loved in previous roles is unbelievable in her role as Katie Cox (married to John Malkovich aka Osbourne Cox) in 'Burn After Reading'.  If you don't hate her at the end of the movie you love women who are bitches.

Brad Pitt plays a handsome, but dumb-as-a-bag-of-rocks health club trainer by the name of Chad Feldheimer who manages to find himself entangled in a blackmail scheme.

He also is forced to dress up in suits when he meets with the blackmailers and in an odd twist he winds up in the wrong place at the wrong time with George Clooney taking a shower while Brad is wearing a suit.

To telegraph his not-so-bright health club status his hairstyle involves relatively long and full strands worn brushed up in a soft faux hawk with bold highlights painted throughout almost like two lightening bolts down either side of his head.

In the first scene where Brad appeared I did a double take because it was such a departure hairstyle for Brad who off camera always looks dashing and incredibly handsome.

Don't get me wrong, Brad's hairstyle was actually perfect for the character he played in the film.  It's exactly the hairstyle you might expect a health club male trainer to be sporting.

In fact, Mickey Rourke of Wrestler fame told E! in a Golden Globes Red Carpet interview that Brad has to work very hard as an actor to overcome his handsome face.

Indeed, in Burn After Reading Brad manages to overcome his normal suave and handsome appearance with his chunky highlighted hair to look goofy.
