The Hair, which is based on the real-life saga of Mastermind’s Dick Turpin and his hairdresser lover Grace Budd, stars Henry as the eponymous locksmith. When ComicBook.com asked if he was able to keep track of his lines while watching Elizabeth Taylor’s character transform into a beautiful woman, he said: “I was so obsessed with her gorgeous hair that I forgot some of my cues.”
“Let me tell you something incredibly distracting, It’s Brad Pitt’s hair. It’s really, it’s really annoying. Like the very final part of the movie where we’re in the train car together and you know, Aaron’s character has smashed through the glass, we’re supposed to be going like 200 something miles an hour and there’s this wind fan that’s just perfectly placed for Brad Pitt and so I would literally forget some of my cues because I’m so busy lost in this wheat blond, beautiful hair.”
Furthermore, he was both perplexed/irritated by Pitt’s hair smarts, notably his ability to “know exactly when to whip it.”
“And like he’s so good at hair control that like he knew exactly when to whip it, and it just made me want to punch him in the face more. So like Brad Pitt’s hair is distracting, like just know that it’s another character in the movie, but it’s, it’s precious.”
Henry is not the first person to remark on Pitt’s famous hairdo. Ranker has ranked it 10th among the greatest male celebrity hair, and numerous publications have highlighted his finest on-screen cuts.
We’re curious where his Bullet Train mane will rank when the film is released on Aug. 5. Try not to be sidetracked!
