While introducing the hair and makeup category at Sunday night’s Oscars, Don Cheadle said, in effect, that if the actor’s hair is incorrect in any way that’s all an audience will see. But this principle also works in reverse. If your hair is so correct and so right, then that is all anyone will notice. See: Brad Pitt’s messy bun. Eat your heart out, Meghan Markle. 

Pitt, the man, and his tiny bun, the legend, presented best supporting actress at last night’s Oscars. Now of course, this is not all audiences noticed about Pitt. They noticed that he got to give the award to Yuh-Jung Youn, the number one scene-stealer in a film he executive produced, Minari. 

Youn also managed to steal the entire Oscars. “Mr. Brad Pitt, finally. Nice to meet you,” she said to him. “Where were you when we were filming?” And then backstage, when someone asked what Pitt smelled like, she reportedly said she didn’t smell him because she’s “not a dog.” And finally, in a night of coups for the South Korean actor, here’s a nice picture of her with fellow treasures who won in their categories, Frances McDormand and Daniel Kaluuya. 

But this is about Brad! Brad and his hairs all collected in a bun. The best-supporting character to Youn’s win, really. The look is a very correct nod to the pandemic, when one can get away with fewer haircuts. But it’s so healthy-looking? Like he doesn’t experience stress? Everyone else’s hair is falling out, and Brad is over here with strands to spare. 

The low bun has the luster of a guy who gets his omega-3s in. The shine of a 2000s-era Pantene commercial. The swoop that says, “Who me? Afraid of a little product? Yeah right.” It is awards show in the front, and L.A. dad in the back—a new, welcome kind of mullet.

Brad Pitt appeared to tear up while watching actress Youn Yuh-jung accept her award at the 93rd Academy Awards.

Pitt was on hand to present the award for the best supporting actress category. Yuh-jung ended up winning the award and making history as the first Korean actress to win an Oscar in that category for her role in the film “Minari.” The movie sees her play tough and determined matriarch of an Asian family who leaves California to pursue their dream of owning a farm in Arkansas.

After announcing her as the winner, Pitt stood off to the side while Yuh-jung gave her heartfelt and acceptance speech. However, at one point the camera briefly cut to Pitt who appeared to be fighting back tears as he listened to her words.

The two had a sweet moment together on stage prior to that as Yuh-jung opened her speech by briefly acknowledging she was a little star struck by the “Ad Astra” star’s presence. 

“Mr. Brad Pitt, nice to meet you finally,” she said while giggling. “Where were you when we were filming?” 

Pitt wasn’t the only star she name-dropped in her speech. 


“How can I win over Glenn Close? I’ve been watching her so many performances,” she said of her fellow supporting actress nominee. “So this is just, all the nominees, five nominees, we are the winners for the different movies. We play the different roles, so we cannot compete each other.”

“I think I have just a little bit of luck, I think. Maybe I’m luckier than you, and also maybe it’s American hospitality for the Korean actor? I’m not sure,” she added.


Pitt himself is no stranger to the Oscars stage. During last year’s show, he took home the best supporting actor award for his critically acclaimed performance in the Quentin Tarantino-directed film “Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood.”


The occasion marked the actor’s first ever solo Oscar win despite previously being nominated for his acting work in the films “Twelve Monkeys,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “Moneyball.” He had previously won an Oscar for producing the 2014 best picture hit “12 Years a Slave.”
