Why Brad Pitt Wears Lifts

White American men’s average height is usually fixed at about 5 feet 10 inches. This implies that Brad Pitt is taller than the regular white American adult male with a height measurement of 5 feet 11 inches.
If you do not think that Brad Pitt is exceptionally tall, carefully bread through our analysis.
Because of his towering height, it is quite unusual for Brad to use lifts. So why does he still use them?
There were reports that Brad wore lifts on the sets of ‘The Big Short’ so that he can be taller or be at the same level with co-stars Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling.
An unnamed source further said that Brad believes that being tall enables a noticeable visual. If this is true, then it is understandable why Brad uses lifts because it is common for men to gain extra confidence from being taller than their peers.
Similarly, men might feel like they measure up when they share the same heights with their mates. Still, this reason is not solid for Brad Pitt who already has enough confidence having gathered many achievements and global stardom.
Thus, the reports by the unnamed source mentioned above have been debunked as untrue.
Asides from the reasons mentioned above, Brad Pitt may be using a lift in correspondence to psychological studies of why women and men care about height. Results from the study show that women love to date taller men. Thus, short men and women are seen as less successful and attractive.
In the same vein, the popular belief is that tall people are better educated, they make more money and they have better health.
It is unclear maybe Brad Pitt has any of this in mind to make him resort to using lifts. Regardless of the psychological beliefs on height, Brad is successful; he makes big money.
Brad is also taller than all the women he has been involved with. However, it is still quite understandable why Brad may want to use lifts. There are few reasons for this.
The reason might be because he just wants to wear them, or it gives him an additional boost of confidence or lifts helps him to portray movie roles better.
Whatever reason it is, we can only support it because it is his choice. We cannot question the rationale behind Brad’s use of lifts as long as he keeps on acting movies we love.
Does it Matter?
