Hot or Not? Brad Pitt

We always end the week in a frivolous kind of way here at Mummy Mayhem with Hot or Not...


I was surprised - really, I was - that Javier Bardem didn't fare better in last week's Hot or Not. Seems Penelope doesn't have much competition after all. She can now rest easy. *cough*


Now, I kind of feel in one sense that this week's choice is too obvious a one. How many times have I heard women say, "Oh, Brad Pitt....GORGEOUS." I may not be repeating what I've heard verbatim, but something along those lines anyway.


So here's the shocker...I've never really been a huge Brad Pitt fan. I mean, I can see he's a fairly good-looking guy, a great actor, and there are certain movies he's been in that I've thought....nice (eg the Oceans films and Mr & Mrs Smith with his main squeeze, Ang). Did I think he was gorgeous in Thelma & Louise when everyone was raving about him? Nup. Unless he's having a fun rapport with his cast mates George Clooney and Matt Damon during promo interviews for the Oceans films, am I impressed with his real life persona? Not much. The fact he's actively involved with various charities impresses me though. I like people who 'give back'. But do I find him hot? Hmmm...not really. 


Does all of this surprise you, or do you agree with me?


What's your take on Brad Pitt. Is he hot, or not?

This weekly post was inspired by Insomniac Mummy's weekly Hot or Not.

HOT HOT HOT HOT! I've had a crush on him since I was 14!

Shelley said...

Agree, agree, agree! I've never found Brad Pitt hot. And I always thought that made me a little strange.
Glad to hear I'm not the only female on the planet who thinks that.

Shelley said...

As in I agree with you Jodie. Sorry Megan, he's all yours! :-)

wombat central said...

I totally agree with you, Jodie--I recognize he's handsome (with the exception of that HID-E-OUS beard thing he had going on for a while), but he's never done much for me. Angelina can have him!

Corinne said...

Hot! Definitely hot! Though I was a little turned off when he was with Jen, I just don't get that woman.

Bernadette Morley said...

In action, hot. With his gross beard, not. :)

samantha currie said...

He's the Pitts! Ahh - I crack myself up.... :-D

I find that as he gets older and more worn looking he's becoming more attractive to me. I've never gone for pretty boys and thats what he was. I am even in the minority who like him with the beard....

pt said...

Oh thank god I just don't get her either she just so blah...

Cinda said...

Hot! So much better with age but he won my heart in "Legends of a Fall". I loved his character Tristan and now my son shares the same name:)

Gill@OurParklife said...

I used to think HOT....but now I think NOT...

Not even sure as to why I have gone off him.....just not so keen anymore

Marg said...

I am with you - not really! Never really saw the attraction!

Thea Smith said...

O.M.G....If I had nothing to do but look at Brad Pitt's face all day every day, I don't think I'd ever get bored. I think he has THE most gorgeous face on the planet! Totally divine!! So I guess that's a H.O.T. from me! Mmmm mmm mmmm mmm mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Sass said...

He is VERY VERY VERY good looking.

*sigh*

Kellie said...

No... I have never found him sexy... Robert Downey Jr is hot... and Matt Damon. ;)

Fran said...

I find men who cheat on their wives unattractive by default, so I'm going to say "not." I realize I am probably in the minority here, but as someone who has been cheated on, I'll tell you, hearing that you're "blah" or that the lady he chose over you (while you were still together, mind you) looks better with him does nothing to ease the hurt.

Lucy said...

The skanky beard look has turned me off him. As does his odd ralationship with Angelina Jolie. There is a weird vibe surrounding him since he hooked up with her.

BUT, if I remember back to his youthful cowboy self, getting adorable and raunchy with Geena Davis in Thelma & Louise. Oh my. Hot. I could watch clips of him in that movie again, and again, and again. And pause them like a mucky old cougar......

Naomi said...

I like a bit of grunge, so the beard was appealing to me. I have loved him since he played a role on the movie A River Runs Through it.
There is no denying he is good looking, and as he ages he seems to become more appealing... do I want his crazy life with a trillion kids? No.
He did a bit if of the pretty boy things for a while, which I'm not attracted to at all. But then I saw an episode of Jack Ass (yes, I am SO mature) with him in it. In one scene he pretended to be kidnapped in a van... much to the surprise of on lookers, in another he was dressed in a gorilla suit causing mayhem with other Jack Ass regulars... I was hooked. I do like a bad boy.
So I guess from me that's a hot! :-D

river said...

Definitely NOT.

Jane said...

Overrated.

He might've been hot about 5 years ago, but since Angie came on the scene and he's gone for that whole grungy unwashed look, I gotta say he's lost his appeal.

Tiger said...

He used to be hot, he has aged tremendously in the last five years, he always looks tired.

Martini Mom said...

Nope, I prefer my men dark and brooding. He's too blonde and blue-eyed for me.

Maxabella said...

Ah, what can you say about Brad. He's pretty. He's a bit thick. He's probably sexy. He's just not hot. x

3pmPimms said...

forget the grunge...did you ladies see that photo.....yes the one up there.....lovely, pretty and a little ruggered?? as well.. Now ladies lets not give him a hard time for aging....it is happening to us all....and with all those kids...good lord you would age to ...and keeping up with Ange.....I age just thinking about it....not to sure about his acting but HOT, HOT,HOT....loving your work Jodie as always!!!!!!!!! ;)

Kirrily said...

You know, I could really take him (like that's a possibility ha) or leave him. I've never been fussed. Perhaps he's a bit too predictably handsome? Seems like a decent guy, so that's a big plus.

dramaqueen said...

So, cast your mind back to "Thelma and Louise". Do you remember Brad in those low slung jeans and cowboy hat?
I do - and he was HOT!
Now - not so much. He is more on the milder side of hot. But back in the day? Yeah Baby!

MultipleMum said...

I know it is unfahionable, but I totally rate Brad Pitt. He is scrumptious!
