Arguably one of the men with the best looks in Hollywood, Brad Pitt has earned his fortune from an acting career that spans over two decades. He is also a director and producer. As of 2020, Brad Pitt’s net worth is $300 million

In addition to being one of the wealthiest actors, Brad Pitt is also among the most influential personalities in the world of entertainment. Here is a sneak peek at how he became so successful.

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.

Details of Brad Pitt’s Net Worth in 2020

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.

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.

Plan B Business Enterprise and Endorsements

Besides acting, Brad is also actively involved in movie production. His Production Company, Plan B is behind some top films including ‘Eat Pray Love’, ‘Kick-Ass’, and ’12 Years a Slave’. He has worked with top actors who have been nominated and won various awards. Brad has also been nominated and won many awards which include; a Golden Globe Award, Academy Award for best producer (Plan B) and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Meet Brad Pitt’s Children

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and their Kids

Brad Pitt and his former wife Angelina will forever be remembered for their philanthropic acts that include adopting children of different races from different countries around the world. Together, the pair have six kids; three of which are adopted while the other three are their biological children. They are Maddox; Pax; Zahara; Shiloh; and twins Knox and Vivienne.

Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s oldest child is their son Maddox who was born on August 5, 2001, in Cambodia. Jolie had solely adopted the child as a seven-month old baby from an orphanage in Battambang, Cambodia in March 2002. His birth name is Rath Vibol. She raised him as a single parent until early 2006 when her relationship with Pitt was in full swing and his application to adopt the child was granted.

Maddox is today no longer a teenager and can now make legally binding decisions for himself. In 2019, he enrolled at Yonsei University in South Korea where he is reportedly studying biochemistry.

Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt

Pax Thien is the second oldest child of Brad Pitt and his ex-wife but the third child to join the family. The boy, whose birth name is Pham Quang Sang, was born on November 29, 2003, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where he was abandoned by his biological mother soon after his birth. On March 15, 2007, Jolie adopted Pax as a three-year-old child from an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City after having first met him a year before. She was unable to adopt Pax with Pitt at the time because Vietnamese law prohibited unmarried couples from co-adopting.

But after Pax had joined her in the U.S. and she successfully petitioned the court to change his surname from Jolie to Jolie-Pitt, Brad was able to adopt him as his own on February 21, 2008.

Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt

Zahara Marley is the oldest daughter of Brad Pitt. Like her two older siblings, she too was adopted by just Angelina Jolie at first. The baby girl named Yemsrach by her birth mother and Tena Adam by the orphanage was born on January 8, 2005 in Awasa, Ethiopia. Angelina adopted her from the Wide Horizons For Children orphanage in Addis Ababa, on July 6, 2005 when she was 6 months old.

Jolie was accompanied by Brad when she travelled to Ethiopia to take custody of Zahara. While he did not initially sign adoption papers when Jolie took custody of the baby girl, he later completed the process in early 2006, the same time he adopted Maddox.

Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt

Brad Pitt

Shiloh is the first biological child of the celebrity power couple. She was born on May 27, 2006 in Swakopmund, Namibia. The couple chose to give birth to their child outside of the United States in order to avoid a media frenzy. They would later sell her first pictures for millions of dollars, donating all proceeds to UNICEF.

Shiloh has since been raised in the U.S. and has grown up as a tomboy. Reports have it that she once insisted that her family call her John as she prefers to wear boys clothes unlike her girly sister Zahara.

Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline

On July 12, 2008, Angelina Jolie gave birth to her and Brad Pitt’s fifth and sixth children; twins Knox and Vivienne. She had them in a seaside hospital in Nice, France and sold the first photos of them for $14 million. Again, the couple donated all the money to charity, this time however to the Jolie/Pitt Foundation.

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 favourite 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 rumours 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.
