    I thought the movie World War Z was better than the book. Book wasn't bad but dragged quite a bit from time to time. Ok, bring the comments on Brad Pitt's appearance ladies. go ahead....

    Why does Brad Pitt always seem to have a scarf on??? Not in the movie, but in real life?

    Not unless he covers them with make-up. I've seen him in 'real-life' pics without a scarf and no tats show. But just can't figure out why he wears a scarf at all.
