Brad Pitt’s Early Life and Career Beginnings

William Bradley Pitt was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma on December 18, 1963. His father, William Alvin Pitt operated a trucking company while his mother, Jane Etta, was a school counsellor. Brad, as he is popularly known, is the oldest child in the family. His family later relocated to Springfield, Missouri where he attended Kickapoo High School. He actively took part in musicals, school debates, swimming, golf as well as table tennis. In 1982, he joined the University of Missouri and pursued a course in Journalism.

His strong desire to make it in the film industry saw him leaving Missouri two weeks prior to him earning his degree. According to him, Missouri wasn’t well-developed in terms of acting and film production. His best shot was Los Angeles where he moved to and worked odd jobs in order to support his acting classes. Like many other aspiring actors, Pitt went through the usual struggles of finding a good role. Coach Roy London played a vital role in his early acting career. His first shot at the big screen came in 1987 where he played unaccredited roles in; ‘No Man’s Land’, ‘No Way Out’, and ‘Less Than Zero’. At this time, he was just like any other struggling actor and few knew about him.

He made his first television debut in May 1987 when he played a role in ‘Another World’, A TV soap opera broadcasted by NBC. In November 1987, Brad Pitt made a guest appearance on the ABC sitcom ‘Growing Pains’.

1987 was certainly a good year for Pitt’s career as he also managed to feature in four episodes of ‘Dallas’, a primetime series broadcasted by CBS. At the time, Dallas was among the most-watched TV programs. One notable role he played was that of Randy, Charlie Wade’s boyfriend. Brad also appeared in the 1988 episode of a police drama series by Fox, ’21 Jump Street’ which also featured Johnny Depp.

His Career Breakthrough and Film Successes 

Like any other beginner, Brad Pitt’s net worth wasn’t impressive, to begin with. Also, he was yet to cause ripples in the film and acting world. However, it wasn’t long before his patience and persistence paid off.

In 1991, Brad Pitt was the star of the hit movie, ‘Thelma & Louse‘ where he played the role of a wickedly charming and conniving drifter who seduces a pretty lady, Geena Davis and ends up robbing her.

Hollywood and the acting world finally took notice of his acting prowess. Afterwards, Brad starred in many movies and was regarded as one of the best actors in addition to being one of the sexiest men alive. He featured in the 2009 hit movie, ‘Inglorious Bastards‘ that earned $320 million at the box office.

Endorsements from companies such as Cadillac ($3 million), Chanel No. 5 ($7 million) and the sale of a Malibu home ($13.75 million) have also contributed in making Brad Pitt’s net worth look very attractive.

As at 2016 before their heartbreaking divorce, Hollywood power pair (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) known as Brangelina had a combined estimated net worth of $400 million. Regardless, Brad Pitt alone is worth a reported $300 million in 2020.

Relationship with Angelina Jolie and Their Subsequent Divorce

In September 2016, the internet went ballistic when Angelina filed for divorce from Brad. Dubbed the Brangelina split, the epic breakup drove an arrow through the couple’s millions of fans who didn’t see it coming.

Though married in 2014, Mr & Mrs. Smith co-stars have been together since 2004. They originally met on the set of the action-comedy and were also seen on screen together in 2015’s ‘By the Sea’, which wasn’t as successful as the former. Brad and Angelina were reportedly dating secretly while he and his ex, Jennifer Anniston were still battling with divorce.

Early in 2006, Jolie confirmed that she was pregnant with Pitt’s child. This was the first time she was acknowledging their relationship publicly. They announced their engagement in April 2012 after seven years together and were married on August 23, 2014. The wedding was held at a private ceremony in Château Miraval, France.

The Hollywood power couple quickly became a fan favorite and got so much love from their fans. They also looked adorable on the red carpet and everything appeared to be perfect, or so it seemed. On September 19, 2016, trouble hit paradise and Angelina filed for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences. Apparently, the much-loved Hollywood couple were not living on a bed of roses as we thought.

While we are still trying to wrap our heads around the fact that Brangelina is no more, there are speculations that their divorce has been put on hold. In fact, some rumors point to the fact that they may have fallen back into each other’s arms.

Together, they were known for their philanthropic acts and support to many charities worldwide. They lead campaigns against poverty and AIDS and have adopted several children from different countries.
