Brad Pitt says the Harvey Weinstein scandal has transformed Hollywood for the better. The 55-year-old actor compared allegations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein to the shocking murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate in 1969.

Pitt stars alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's much-hyped new movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which depicts the shocking murders of Tate and four house guests by followers of crazed cult leader Charles Manson.

Pitt is currently on a promotional tour for the movie, according to WENN.com.

When asked by Britain's Sunday Times newspaper about similar incidents that rocked the Hollywood film industry, he replied simply: "Harvey Weinstein."

The actor's ex-fiancee, Gwyneth Paltrow, was one of multiple women who accused the former movie mogul of sexual misconduct. Weinstein faces rape and sexual assault charges in New York - accusations he vigorously denies.

Paltrow claimed that, when they were dating, she told Pitt about Weinstein's alleged harassment and Pitt threatened to "kill" the disgraced former Miramax boss if he made sexual advances toward her again.

Now Pitt regrets his toxic masculinity reaction and he went on to confess he's noticed a shift in recent years in the way Hollywood portrays male masculinity in films.

"I think we're getting recalibrated, but in a good way," he explained. "When I started, I loved Mickey Rourke and Sean Penn. I loved them because there was a toughness to them, which was how the male I'd grown up being taught about was meant to be."

He added he likes what he sees in Hollywood's new males who are softer and display ladylike emotions.

"What I see now, is a new masculinity, especially with people who have gone through Hollywood and its recalibration, a new male who is more vulnerable."

Toxic masculinity is described as a man's fear of being seen as soft, tender, weak, emotional or somehow less than manly.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is in theaters now.

    What the hell is he talking about? This is the man who has been dressing his daughter like a boy for years.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Still like Brad ?

  • iWasteTime

    I heart Brad. He can still get it!!
    For 26 years (I was 12 when I saw Thelma and Louise) he's been so handsome to me.

  • xxxgracious

    I loved his character in Mrs. & Mr. Smith. So masculine and sexy lol.

  • Navybeans95

    Le *sigh* he's right...a majority of the men black and white are putting on dresses or kissing other men and it's just accepted. I was watching Shrek and I noticed a character that seems to be a cross dresser. Dave Chapel spoke about this in detail..it's a programming agenda going on and most are too blind to see it....

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I dont think he had much of a say when it came to that!

    Still catching eyes Brad...............

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Me neither bc he also the same man who was like lets get it to his teen son when the young man started smelling himself. Something tells me he had ZERO say over A LOT when it came to him, Angie and those kids.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Hey Brad. Still love you sir.

  • currvalicious

    His former wife really did a number on him. I can't look at him the same. Angelina clearly wore the pants in that relationship. Had him adopting all those 3 world kids, when he could've been busy creating his own. Just nuts.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    EXTREMELY!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You sound ignorant.
    If you knew anything about the theater you would know that during Shakespeare's time all of the characters were portrayed by men which meant that men portrayed females and probably wore female costumes.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She's so ghetto in Ambitions and Robin Givens plays the same damn character in every show with her ugly self.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. Him leaving Jennifer Aniston was probably the worst mistake he ever made.

  • Navybeans95

    OK..no need to call my observations ignorant...u can have your own ideas...but if u think u can come here a call my observations ignorant u got it all twisted ...I'm entitled to my opinions same as u dude...u have a good one...?

  • SpiceGirl

    But I LOVE it! lol

  • the guest

    Exactly.

    Angelina is toxic femininity.

    She destroyed Brad Pitt.

  • iWasteTime

    I agree wholeheartedly. He was stuck between a rock and a hard place. He wanted to procreate and she didn't though. Ugh, he should have slipped one in ... lol

  • rockstar2142

    Your right. It’s a lot going on folks need to be paying attention.

  • NewNew

    Dave said he would never wear a dress for a movie, then he did. I wonder who got to him and how.

  • the guest

    What is sad is that Brad Pitt was never toxic, misogynist, and never was bigoted. So why he himself felt the need to become softer makes no sense. But Angelina ate him up and spit him out.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    cosign to it all.

  • Navybeans95

    Really? I didn't realize he ended up putting a dress on...smh...

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Wait when Dave wore one? I missed this here mess.

  • the guest

    Angelina is a trip. Maddox talked back and cursed at Brad. Brad did the white parent "spanking" of grabbing him by the shoulders and I think it was reported he might of also slapped him. Oh, the horror!

    So vindictive Angelina reported Brad to CPS for shoulder grab and a slap because she wanted legal leverage and control in the separation she was planning. She probably told the kid to act out.

    But no one's calling CPS on Angelina for her calculated socializing their daughter to be trans and for that matter no one's calling CPS on Charlize for doing the same to her son.

  • rockstar2142

    What movie was this?

  • the guest

    Brad's a textbook good looking man. But he's not cute to me anymore. His whole Thelma and Louise sexiness and swagger is gone. And he always has the sad, pleading, "vulnerable" expression on his face that is just not hot to me.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Brad(whom I first saw when I attended the SAG Awards with a then unknown to the world pregnant Angelina) I always thought made a cute couple with temptress Robin Givens.

  • Renee26

    It's ok for men to cry... They're humans too

    Damn ?

  • Kanyade

    que pelicula?

  • Renee26

    She had trouble conceiving... They have 3 bio kids in addition to the adopted ones

  • NewNew

    He wore one in Robin Hood Men In Tights. Google his name and the movie title. You'll see him and other male actors dressed as women. https://media1.giphy.com/media/HYrZ5HzL2tGYU/giphy.gif

  • lovelygamour

    yet, he worked with weinstein because he had projects that made him look good. mr pitt is not a good actor and he slept his way in.

    a lot of people wouldnt have careers if it werent for weinstein. weinstein started casting too many people that didnt pop, his numbers went down, he didnt want to sell the business and now everyone cares. courtney love and a few others complained ages ago.

    now , that weinstein got called out i think more real actors have a chance. there are whole movies where everyone is family or almost family down to the catering. then they wonder why no one wants to pay for their film.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It always felt like that relationship with Angelina was cursed from day one anyway, considering the way he left his first wife for her. Just felt wrong. You cant trample on somebody's heart like that and expect that the next relationship/marriage is going to be blessed.

  • lovelygamour

    they need to cry instead of harassing everyone else. bottling up emotions only to have it come out later is toxic.

  • Kanyade

    Ah, word? Well that film was before his most recent comments. Interesting. Also, I forgot about this flick (and him in it). Thanks for the receipts :)

  • Kanyade

    mr pitt is not a good actor
    --------
    debatable, this is.

  • NewNew

    Perhaps he meant to say that he would never wear a dress again.

  • Kanyade

    Ah, understood. Still thakns for the receipts. Loved this film, by the way. Ridiculous parody and funny.

  • Renee26

    Yup... Cheated with a witch and got put under her spell ?

  • Renee26

    Yeah taking their anger out on people... Even if their momma dies they don't cry cause people will call them weak...Instead they walk around with bottled up emotions.

    Fugg that, I see a failure to express natural human emotions as a sign of crazy.

  • lovelygamour

    lets debate cause the man cant open a movie. meet joe black. have you seen that movie. after that movie mr pitt plays certain characters in certain ways. so you name a movie where william brad pitt had to really act. a movie where he wasnt surrounded by good actors who propped him up. hmmm!!!

  • lovelygamour

    thats his acting face. they said he was robert redford and warren beatty and he has seem to take it to heart. he has been rich too long to look edgy. just like johhny depp. i still love johnny depp acting but his -sexy face- is gone. too rich and pampered.

  • Kanyade

    LOL I knew someone was going to mention Meet Joe Black. LOL.

    Okay, so a movie where my third, future ex-husband had to act. The Tree of Life. You don't star in a Terrence Malick film, unable to "act". https://media1.giphy.com/media/cYHDv2SiI9U1VcfUf3/giphy.gif

  • lovelygamour

    you mean sean penn film. you mean an experimental film with a limited release. anyway, i havent watched this movie but i will and i will report back. because i think you are trying to pull one over on me. if mr pitt is only in the movie for 30 minutes you will be hearing about it.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I agree...to this day neither of them look right to me and it shows how the media can be bias and praise a yt woman for ruining a marriage publicly and priasing her for it..."Til you right by Jen (Brad) everything you think about is gonna crumble"...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    IDC...Brad can still get it...I've been in love with that man since I used to hide my sister's Legends of the Fall VHS tape...I was gonna name my future son Tristan (but of course big hips T. Thompson ruined that)...Brad is fione and he likes chocolate...

  • iWasteTime

    Correct and Angelina knew what having Shiloh would do.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    so you name a movie where william brad pitt had to really act.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Girl. Brad one of the best of our time IMO

  • currvalicious

    Yes!! This!!! Toxic femininity. Describes her to a T. She blindsided him w/that divorce as well.

  • Parent

    I don't have an issue with toxic masculinity. I want my man to be a man in every sense of the word. Not to the point that it's toxic but I think society and the media and the feminist groups are dragging it.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Johnny Depp is a raging alcoholic, druggie. Reason why his sexy face been gone.He also a woman beater. God dont like ugly.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile Angelina ol wicked ass took a needle and syringe and suxT alla the sex appeal outta Brad??

  • Savoy7

    Brad is still a sexy MF. He can still get it.

  • Savoy7

    I fell in love with Brad Pitt after watching Legends of the Fall too. He’s still a sexy MF.

  • Kanyade

    LOL. I'm not trying to pull one over on you, seriously. Brad Pitt is in the movie, full-on flashback, as is Jessica Chastain.

  • currvalicious

    Lmao

  • Kanyade
  • Kanyade

    Yes he is.

  • Toni Toni Toni

    Totally agree.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    What do you think happened to Stephanie?
    Did someone send her a picture of her daughter kissing the white girl?

  • SpiceGirl

    I believe so....and we ALL know they be on Super Petty.....so I wouldn't even be surprised. This show crazy.....but I can not wait till the NEXT episode

  • Jordan’s Memory

    That man is so damn fine! Idc what yall say!!!!!!!!!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Brad can sleep with me for a movie role. but I make no promises I can only see what I can do for ya. lol

  • Jordan’s Memory

    He is one of those actor that's you don't really care if he can act because he is fine we just wanna see some eye candy. Although I disagree, he's not a poor actor.

  • Evillene

    "He added he likes what he sees in Hollywood's new males who are softer and display ladylike emotions."

    Don't worry, I'm not taking the bait -- but a man displaying "ladylike" emotions is the worst of both worlds.

  • Evillene

    Yeah but how does that correlate to what men think is being a man? I think a man should be a provider, a protector, and a role model who takes pride in his family. However, I don't think my impression of what makes a man is the standard.

  • Yup, I said it

    I think toxic bitch behavior is more dangerous that masculinity. That's for anybody male or female that gets in their emotions. They lose all rational thinking and just act like the HULK with PMS.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I'm sad masculinity is becoming a word to define sinfulness. My poor daughters gotta grow up in this cotton candy ass society.

  • Karen Brady

    Brad Pitt ain't killing nobody. Shyt, Angelina stuck her foot so far up his azz.

  • Karen Brady

    That was a million years ago for five minutes.

  • Karen Brady

    "Robin Givens plays the same damn character in every show " UPVOTE x 100. I said this last week to someone and said this is why I will not watch it.

  • Karen Brady

    And he don't bathe they say. He can be in Hollywood and you can smell him in Vegas.

  • kre

    He's a crossdresser so of course he would say that.

  • Pamela

    I love me some Brad Pitt.

  • Pamela

    That Angelina comes across as controlling and narcistic. She ain't even all that. "We are the World" my azz. Phony heffa.

  • Queen B

    He so fine ?

  • KcoolMuziq

    If at first U don’t succeed try try again.

  • Parent

    What one perceives as toxic masculinity may differ to another. For instance I feel like my place is in the kitchen cooking meals for my man, washing his clothes, waiting on him hand and foot, etc. but some see that as toxic.

  • Parent

    If my man told me, "woman get your butt in the kitchen and make me something to eat" it wouldn't offend me, it would turned me on and I would oblige.

  • Seldomseen

    I took that personally

  • Seldomseen

    I suspect Angelina had absolutely no limits in the bedroom, she put a root on him.

  • KLo

    That's one fine white boy, good gawd

  • currvalicious

    I agree!

  • Kylla Williams

    sorry ion want no soft man. just because a man has edge doesn't mean he cant be vulnerable. my man a masculine man but he knows how to be gentle with me, women in general, and kids. he knows how to communicate without being aggressive until he needs to be. its about a man with balance

  • Let them eat cake

    angie is a borderline

  • Renee

    Listen to these public figures when they talk. Hollywood and movies are recalibrating. Facts! These movies and their characters have the masses believing the screen portrayal. SMH Brad has been soft, so is Leonardo, thus always looking so cute. ?????

  • Logan Roberts

    Brad still is a cutie. But let's be real, Angie the devil been snatched your balls & ate them along time ago.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I love Brad! I love his foundation! I’m glad he’s looking healthy again! Look forward to seeing this Quentin T. film, didn’t like the last two, so I hope this one is great!

  • MRiGOThim

    Brad still got it :P

  • lovelygamour

    you mean cate blanchette and taraji henson movie. the man is surrounded by good actors. go watch fury and the counselor.

  • lovelygamour

    you mean robert redford and Anthony hopkins movies. yeah, brad pitt can play his position but he cant act. see troy and Inglourious Basterds. I love troy- watch it till this day, but the man cant act. he is an -of the moment actor.

    but no one can deny the man knows how to pick a project.

    tom cruise, denzel washington, morgan freeman and tilda swinton can not only act but teach their costars how to act. mr pitt cant do that. lol.

  • SG

    I agree. You ain’t gotta cry about everything but failing to express human emotion at the death of a parent, etc. is a sign that something isn’t right with a person.

  • SG

    This!! Cant expect happiness when you have to obtain it by making another miserable.

    I agree. Brad needs to publicly atone for his wrong against Jen. How did he and Angie think they could build forever joy on a foundation of hurt.

  • the guest

    Amen.

    I remember those new stories. Jen's friends were saying that she was despondent just busting out in tears out of nowhere all over the place. It was no small heartbreak. Angie is wicked.

  • the guest

    Remember Brad was Robin Given's man.
