Born: 18. Dec. 1963.

College: University of Missouri (journalism)
Probably everyone have heard about this Hollywood superstar. With face which inspired numerous magazine covers, megabytes of Internet sites, and brains of plastic surgeons, in 90´s he became one of the most famous persons in whole Hollywood. But how much do you know about his past?
Brad Pitt was born in Shawnee (Oklahoma), as a first child ofmother Jane Etta Hillhouse and father William (Bill) Pitt, but spent most of his childhood in Springfield, Missouri. At that time, his parents lived life like every other ordinary family: his mom was a school counsellor and dad worked in management at truck company in Springfield. They had two more children, a younger brother of Brad, DouglasPitt, and a younger sister Julie Pitt.
Even as a six year old boy, Brad was turning heads during services at South Haven Baptist Church in his hometown.”You couldn’t keep from watching Brad because his face was so expressive,” piano accompanist Connie Bilyeu tells for People magazine. “He would move his little mouth so big with all the words that he attracted everyone’s attention.”
Few years later, after Horace Mann elementary, Brad was attending Kickapoo High School, where he was involved in sports, debating, student government and school musicals. It could be said that he was pretty popular in school. He was voted for best dressed senior and his classmate Mark Swadley said that he always had a lot of dates back in that time.
After graduation in 1982. he attended the University of Missouri where he studied journalism with a focus on advertising. He was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity, and although he acted in some of the fraternity’s shows, seemed more interested in music than acting. But in 1986, with only two credits left to graduate and $325 in his pocket, he left school and headed for California to try his luck. He told his family he was going to attend art design school in Los Angeles, but that was a lie. Instead he drove to California in his Datsun, nicknamed “Runaround Sue”, and suffered through months of failed auditions.
Before he became successful at acting, Pitt supported himself by driving limos for a Strip-o-gram service, moving refrigerators and dressing as a giant chicken while working for “el Pollo Loco”, a chain of Mexican restaurants. He was a pool boy and appliances delivery man for some time.
Talking about one of his first jobs at Newsweek’s annual Oscar roundtable Saturday in Hollywood, Pitt said, “My job was to drive them (strippers) to bachelor parties and things. I’d pick them up, and at the gig I’d collect the money, play the bad Prince tapes and catch the girls’ clothes. It was not a wholesome atmosphere, and it got very depressing.”But it was not without its perks: Just before quitting, Pitt made a critical show business contact.
“This girl , I’d never met her before, was in an acting class taught by a man named Roy London,” a famous acting coach, he said, according to Newsweek. “I went and checked it out, and it really set me on the path to where I am now.” He added: “Strippers changed my life.”
So, because of that coincidence, he studied acting with Roy London. Before some major acting jobs began to develop, in 1987, he had small parts in Less Than Zero and No Man’s Land starring Charlie Sheen.
Brad appeared on numerous TV shows, including Head of the Class, where he met Robin Givens, whom he dated for a while. He also turned up on Growing Pains Thirtysomething, 21 Jump, Street, Another World, and Freddy’s Nightmare . He appeared on three episodes of Dallas , which led to a relationship with co-star Shalane McCall.
Brad’s first major break in movies came in Dark Side of the Sun in 1988., where he played a young American taken by his family to the Adriatic to find a remedy for a skin condition. The movie was shot in Yugoslavia in the summer of ’88 with Pitt being paid $1,523 per week for seven weeks. However, with editing nearly complete, war broke out and much of the footage was lost; the film was released years later. Pitt won a part in the TV movie Too Young to Die?, about an abused teenager given the death penalty for murder. Pitt played the part of a drug addict, Silly Canton, who took advantage of a runaway played by Juliette Lewis, his first Hollywood girlfriend
After meeting 16-year-old Juliette Lewis on the set of the TV movie Too Young to Die , they begin dating. “We were trying to be Sid and Nancy or something,” he tells People of the relationship, which quickly gets serious when they move intoL.A. home together. The two, who starred as greasy serial killers in 1993′s Kalifornia , break up in February of same year.
At same time people saw Brad in films like Across The Tracks, Thelma & Louise, Johnny Suede, A River Runs Through It etc. After this roles his carrer started to progress rapidly and never stopped till today.
