Brad Pitt's Scraggly Beard Finally Explained!

Why is the sexy actor sporting his grizzly facial hair? "Boredom," he explains to Britain's The Sun

Brad Pitt is currently out promoting a movie which he co-produced called Kick-Ass. In the meantime, some have found his beard anything but. So, what's behind that gray, grizzly facial hair adorning one of the world's sexiest men

Turns out, it's not even for a role. "It's boredom," Pitt, 46, told Britain's The Sun at a London bash for the film. "No other reason than that." Reports a few months ago claimed that the actor's partner (and baby mama) Angelina Jolie, 34, wasn't bored with the scraggly look. In fact, she reportedly likes it.

The actor also dished to The Sun about his travels to Glasgow, Scotland, years ago, world travels a few years ago, where he had a not-so-friendly encounter. "When I was in Glasgow I got involved with this girl," he explained. "She happened to be the ex-girlfriend of a bit of a bad guy. I ended up having to get out of town because I was getting 'that' look from a guy behind a bar. It was heavy." 

The actor has been staying with his brood in Venice, where Jolie is shooting her new movie The Tourist
