Los Angeles - Brad Pitt has had to shave his hair off for a film role.

The 50-year-old actor showed off his new look at the Producers Guild Awards at the The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday but insisted he didn't want to get rid of his hair.

He told E! News: "It's for a part. It's not a choice!"

Brad, who produced 12 Years a Slave alongside Anthony Katagas, also spoke about co-star Lupita Nyong'o at the ceremony last night, who mentioned him in her acceptance speech for her Outstanding Supporting Actress award.

He said: "She's very special. [A] very special young lady. We're going to see great things from her."

Brad gushed about the awards season success of the film, saying: "It's great. It also ensures that more people are going to see it. And in my mind this is a film that only comes along once in a decade and everyone should see this. It's that good. It's moving, it's inspirational. It's why I wanted to go into film in the first place."

Brad and the producers of 12 Years a Slave were tied with the makers of Gravity for the Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures award at the ceremony.
