Brad Pitt says he’s ‘crankier’ now he’s older – but oozes class in new coffee ad
Brad Pitt has admitted that getting older has made his choice of style differ, with the 57-year-old star now preferring more comfy attire
Brad Pitt was a style icon in the ’90s.
The actor was the dream man for many women, while a clutch of men aspired to be him.
He was the A-lister who seemingly had it all – the beautiful girlfriends, the handsome good looks and a pick of top notch movies to star in.
But the 57-year-old openly admits that nowadays his fashion sense has changed and if he has a style “it’s no style”.
Brad made the confession to Esquire Magazine. But maybe it was just a case of the Fight Club actor being modest as he still oozed class in his latest ad.
The actor went on to discuss his preference of style, saying: “I like monochrome, without it being a uniform. I like simplicity. I like the details in the stitching, the way it feels. If anything, that’s the only divining rod I have.”

And he admitted that he was mainly hung up on comfort since he’s getting older.
“I like the feel of a Lecia camera or the way a watch feels,” he admitted. “I don’t want to look ostentatious, but if you come close, you notice. I like how the lining feels. It’s those details that are important to me. It’s too exhausting to follow trends. And I despise billboards; I just don’t want to be billboard.”
He confessed: “You get older, you get crankier, and comfort becomes more important. I think it’s as simple as that.”
In its new campaign after teaming up with coffee machine maker De’Longhi, he showcased his style as he rode on a motorbike before pulling up to sip on a freshly brewed cuppa wearing a basic long-sleeve shirt and jeans.
He is the face of the brand’s Perfetto campaign and described himself as a “serious coffee drinker”.

“I am a serious, professional, committed coffee drinker,” he said. “Usually a three-cappuccino drinker in the morning, and depending on the work in the afternoon, I might switch over to an espresso.’
And he told People : ‘I wanted to work with De’Longhi because I appreciated their approach for the campaign—they have confidence in their product and want to celebrate the artistry of their Italian heritage without overdoing it.”
