About Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt

Hollywood’s most eligible man, actor Brad Pitt has English, Irish, Scottish and German ancestry. Father William Alvin Pitt was a trucking company manager, mother Jane a school counselor. Both belong to the evangelical denomination and are strict Baptists, which is why Brad was brought up very religiously. He also sang in the church choir – and discovered the charm of the stage for the first time.

After graduating from school, however, Pitt first devoted himself to studying journalism and advertising. At university he also became a member of the legendary Sigma Chi fraternity. In 1985, Brad Pitt took what was probably the most memorable step of his life: he dropped out of college – just two weeks before graduation – to go to Los Angeles and take acting classes. Through his part-time job as a chauffeur for strippers, he met Roy London, the most renowned acting teacher in LA at the time – his entry into the film industry!

Less than ten years later, Brad Pitt was not only well known, but also in great demand in Hollywood. Juliette Lewis, Robin Givens, Jill Schoelen and Gwyneth Paltrow were among his friends.

Relationships and marriage

Brad Pitt was engaged to Paltrow from 1995 to 1997, and a year later began dating actress Jennifer Aniston. The two Hollywood stars were married from 2000 to 2005. They split after rumors circulated that Pitt began an affair with colleague Angelina Jolie on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. These quickly turned out to be true and Pitt subsequently began dating Angelina Jolie.

How Many Kids Does Brad Pitt Have?

Brad Pitt has six children with Angelina Jolie: three biological children and three adopted children. Brad legally adopted Angelina’s children Maddox and Zahara in 2006 while Angelina was expecting their first child together, Shiloh, who was born in May 2006.

Brad Pitt’s career

In 1985, actor Brad Pitt came to Los Angeles, took acting classes and tried to gain a foothold as an actor. To keep his head above water, handsome Brad modeled.

In 1987, Pitt landed his first film role in the TV series Dallas. This was followed by smaller appearances in series and films. Pitt finally became known to a wide audience for his role in the film “Thelma & Louise”. His upcoming works “From the Middle Runs a River” and “Legends of Passion” made Brad Pitt a Hollywood star, teen idol and one of the most desirable men for his female fans.
