'Sixties stud' Brad Pitt seen filming 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,' as actor's foundation faces legal troubles over Katrina homes
The actor was spotted clad in a classic retro attire -- white flared jeans, boots and a simple black shirt, tucked into his belted pants. And check out the blonde wig!
Brad Pitt's personal life might be getting torn and blown apart out of proportion, owing to his ongoing divorce proceedings and custody battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie, but professionally, the actor seems to have settled into his persona of a 60s stud rather remarkably, in the upcoming Quentin Tarantino project - 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'.
Seen filming on Wednesday, the 54-year-old actor was all clad in a classic retro attire -- white flared jeans, boots and a simple black shirt tucked into his belted pants. He was also flaunting a blonde wig to make his natural locks look even longer.

But Pitt hasn't been the only one gearing up for the roles in this highly anticipated thriller about the Manson Family murders. The film is set in 1969, Los Angeles, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie too. Recently it was announced that Tarantino has cast Australian actor Damon Herriman as Charles Manson, and Polish actor Rafal Zawierucha as director and Tate's husband Roman Polanski.
Revolving around Charles' Manson's cult, the movie releases on July 26, 2019 - just two weeks before the 50th anniversary of the mass murder spree Manson's cult members engaged in, killing five people, including starlet Sharon Tate.
DiCaprio, 43, will play the role of Rick Dalton - a former star of a western TV series - and Pitt will play his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth. Their story shows them struggling to survive in a new, unrecognizable era of Hollywood where they are trying to survive, and at the same time, Dalton's neighbor happens to be Sharon Tate - played by Robbie, 28.

As Pitt films for the upcoming movie in Los Angeles, he's also in the middle of negotiating the terms of his and Jolie's divorce and child custody agreements for their six kids — Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
While the children have spent most of the summer with their mother in London, as she filmed Maleficent 2, Pitt has been an entire ocean apart all this time. However, in the last few weeks, Jolie and the kids have reportedly been in LA and the former couple has decided to maintain a custody statement from earlier in the summer.
Back in June, a judge working on their case had set up a schedule to allow Pitt see is children more often, and not allowing that would cause Jolie to risk losing custody of the kids. “Their parenting approach was always very different,” a source had shared with People magazine previously. “Since their separation, it’s been obvious that they weren’t going to figure things out on their own when it comes to the kids.”
And that's not all, it was reported on Thursday that Pitt's foundation might be in some troubles regarding houses it build in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Pitt's foundation, Make it Right' garnered a lot of plaudits for its post-disaster constructions, but now it seems to be in trouble after some of the homes started to fall apart.
