His floppy blonde locks won over a generation in Thelma And Louise.

And Brad Pitt once again rocked an impressive golden 'do on Sunday – this time tied back into a short ponytail as he presented at the Academy Awards.

The 57-year-old unveiled his new hair style as he presented the Best Supporting Actress Oscar to Yuh-Jung Youn, 73, who was the first Korean and only second person of Asian heritage to win the category.

And the new hairstyle certainly seemed to win over Yuh-Jung Youn, who flirted adoringly with Brad as she accepted during the ceremony in Los Angeles.

"Mr. Brad Pitt, finally," she said. "Nice to meet you. Where were you when we were filming in Tulsa?"

The Minari star drew a big laugh from the audience with her words, before saying she was "very honoured" to meet Brad.

She then corrected him on how to pronounce her name.

In winning her first Oscar, Yuh-Jung defeated Glenn Close, Olivia Colman and Amanda Seyfried.

She had been the favourite in the category, having previously won at both the Screen Actors Guild awards and Baftas.

But modestly, she said of her success: "I'm luckier than you… also maybe American hospitality for Korean actor, I'm not sure but thank you so much".

And she thanked her sons: "My two boys who made me go out and work… this is the result because mummy worked so hard…".

Earlier as Brad introduced the award he told viewers his "love of movies began at the local drive-in".

He then moved onto the nominees: "For Amanda Seyfried, it was the film version of Romeo and Juliet — the Leo version. Me too."

His joke won a big laugh from the crowd.
