Recognised across the globe as one of the world’s most iconic actors, Pitt has appeared in over 60 films and has had almost as many different haircuts – from the floppy blonde ‘curtain’ style that made him a poster-boy of the nineties in films like Seven Years in Tibet to his brunette ‘bangs’ in this year’s Moneyball.
LOVEFiLM, Europe’s largest subscription service instantly streaming films and TV series over the internet and sending DVD and games by post, asked over 1,000 film fans to vote for their favourite Brad cut, and it’s his Se7en style that’s a cut above the rest with an impressive forty three per cent of the vote.
Starring alongside silver fox George Clooney in slick Las Vegas heist Ocean’s 11, Rusty’s ‘Clean Cut Con Artist’ style stole second place in the hair chart, with fourteen per cent. The ‘Shaven Slugger’ look from brutal flick Fight Club punched its way into third place, with eleven per cent of the vote.
The ‘Greasy Boxer’ cut that characterises bad boy Mickey O’Neil in Snatch also packed a punch with film fans, pulling in seven per cent of the vote and placing the dishevelled style firmly in fourth place on the list.
In fifth place is a relaxed style from The Mexican, ‘The Tequila-Soaked Blond’, which took six per cent of the vote to claim fifth place. Brad’s gravity-defying quiff from his appearance as Johnny Suede appeared in sixth place, with five per cent.
In stark contrast to his bad boy ‘do’s’, the ‘Cute Cowboy’ look from Thelma & Louise lassoed four per cent of the vote, riding into seventh place in the list. This was closely followed by The ‘Long Locks’ of Louis de Pointe du Lac in dark flick Interview with the Vampire, which captivated three per cent of fans, creeping into eighth place.
The list ended on a blond note, with the ‘Tousled Warrior’ style from epic blockbuster Troy in ninth place with two per cent and ‘The Sun-Kissed Curtains’ made famous in Seven Years in Tibet in tenth place, with one per cent of the total.

Helen Cowley, Editor of LOVEFiLM, commented:
“With a career spanning 25 years, Brad’s talent has made him a household name. We think one of the real secrets behind Brad’s success is his ability to transform his appearance with a snip of the barber’s scissors. From his iconic floppy blonde curtains that made him the poster-boy of the nineties in films like ‘Seven Years in Tibet’ to his closely cropped head in ‘Fight Club’, Brad is truly a master of reinvention when it comes to his hair.
