Brad Pitt made a stylish appearance at the F1 Grand Prix in Las Vegas this weekend, channeling his bad boy character Tyler Durden from the iconic film Fight Club. The 59-year-old Oscar winner showcased a sandy blonde short hairdo, donning a fitted jacket, tinted sunglasses, and blue jeans. With a popped collar and a cool vibe, Pitt looked every bit the matinee idol who played Ed Norton's alter ego in the David Fincher masterpiece.
Entering the paddock at the Las Vegas Strip Circuit, Brad embraced the atmosphere of the F1 extravaganza, which is being hailed as the sports' most significant event to date. This wasn't the actor's first venture into the world of Formula 1; he has become a familiar face at the F1 tracks while filming the racing drama Apex alongside actors Damson Idris and Javier Bardem, under the direction of Joseph Kosinski.
Apex follows Pitt's character, a veteran Formula 1 driver who comes out of retirement to mentor a promising young driver portrayed by Idris. However, recent reports claimed that the project suffered setbacks due to the writer's strike, leading to changes in sponsorship deals and rendering pre-recorded footage unusable. Formula 1, however, has since clarified that the film is still on schedule, with all relevant footage captured this year and plans for shooting at Grands Prix in 2024.
Despite the challenges faced during production, Brad Pitt remains dedicated to Apex, which he is co-producing alongside Jerry Bruckheimer and Formula One star Lewis Hamilton. The project is highly anticipated, with Hamilton confirming his involvement in the film and expressing his hopes that it will capture the true essence of the sport. With Brad Pitt's iconic presence and the thrilling world of Formula 1 as its backdrop, Apex promises to be a must-watch movie for fans of both cinema and racing.
