Born William Bradley Pitt, in Shawnee, Oklahoma on December 18, 1963 to Bill and Jane Pitt, Brad grew up in Springfield, Missouri. He attended Public schools, graduating from Kickapoo High in 1982 and later that year, he attended the University of Missouri, where he belonged to the Sigma Chi fraternity.
Although he was attending college to secure his degree in Journalism and advertising, he made a decision that would change the Brad Pitt bio forever. He decided to pack up his belongings and make a trip in his Datsun to California to explore a career in acting. That decision undoubtedly made the Brad Pitt Bio a much more interesting story to read then if he had remained on course for a career in journalism.
Arriving in Los Angeles in 1985, Brad worked various jobs and took acting lessons from renowned acting coach Roy London. It would be nearly two years before he got a break in television starring in a regular role on Dallas. In 1988 he received his first film role in The Dark Side of The Sun, for which he was paid a little more than $10,000 for the seven week role. The movie actually was not released until 1997.
His big break came in 1991 with a role in Thelma and Louise. Shortly thereafter, his career catapulted in the early 1990’s and culminates with his first Oscar nomination in 1996 for ‘Twelve Monkeys’. He subsequently has won more than 20 awards and received 41 nominations for his superior acting roles.
An official made for TV Brad Pitt Bio was featured on A&E network’s ‘Biography’ in 2004. This well-documented narrative depicts Brad’s life from birth up to the 2004 making of Troy. The Brad Pitt Bio touts him as an ‘international megastar’, following his illustrious career from his early days as a relative unknown in Another World and the popular ‘Dallas’ TV series to his climb to fame in the ‘Ocean’s’ trilogy mega hits.
A Brad Pitt Bio would not be complete without including his most recent nomination for the 81st Academy Awards Best Lead Actor for his role as Benjamin Button in ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ (2008). Brad shares this honor along with his live in girlfriend and mother of his 6 children Angelina Jolie, as she was nominated Best Lead Actress for her role in ‘The Changeling’ (2008).
Future Brad Pitt Bio’s will undoubtedly include his work as an emerging Producer. Until recently, Brad Pitt has only had a minor role in producing films. However, he is either rumored to be working on or producing more than 9 films to be released over the next three years.
