Pitt: left in 1991, right in 2012

When it comes to successfully pulling off various (and often hairy
) looks for movie roles, we tip our hat to Brad Pitt
And when it comes to pulling off cowboy hats – well, he's probably persuaded many a fan to move to the wild, wild West.
Shooting his latest film, The Counselor
, in London Tuesday, Angelina Jolie
once again channeled his inner cowboy with the down-home southern accessory (and a full head of long hair). The film, which tells the story of a lawyer caught up with the drug-trafficking industry, also stars Cameron Diaz
, Penélope Cruz
, Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender.
And the look is a walk – more like a horseback ride – down memory lane for Pitt, 48, who sported a similar hat-happy and mustached look in 1991's classic Thelma & Louise
. Encountering the duo (Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis) on their way out west, he played the sticky-fingered J.D. in his sexy supporting role.
He makes for a fine southern gentleman in both films, do you have a favorite?
