Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt was born as William Bradley Pitt on December 18, 1963. He was raised in Missouri, and left the University of Missouri just weeks before graduation to pursue acting in California.

Pitt’s career began with bit parts in movies and television in the late 1980s, before he scored his first major role with 1991’s “Thelma and Louise.” He went on to star opposite Tom Cruise in 1994’s “Interview with a Vampire,” and received his first Golden Globe nomination for “Legends of the Fall,” which came out the same year. He then won a Golden Globe and was nominated for his first Academy Award for the 1995 movie “12 Monkeys.”

Pitt starred in the cult favorite “Fight Club” in 1999, and two years later, he received an Emmy nomination for his guest-starring role on then-wife Jennifer Aniston’s show, “Friends.” That same year, in 2001, he appeared in the first of several “Ocean’s Eleven” movies.

Following 2004’s “Troy,” Pitt starred with future wife Angelina Jolie in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” In 2006, Pitt once more earned a Golden Globe nomination for “Babel,” and then another for 2008’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which also gave him a second Oscar nod. A third Oscar nomination came with “Moneyball” in 2011.

Pitt finally won his first Academy Award in 2013, but not for acting. He received a statue for producing Best Picture winner “12 Years A Slave.” With other notable films, including “Inglorious Basterds,” “Tree of Life,” “World War Z” and, most recently, “Fury,” Pitt will next appear on the big screen in 2015 with Jolie in her third directorial feature, “By The Sea.”

Pitt was wed to Aniston from 2000 to 2005, and eventually confirmed a relationship with Jolie. He went on to adopt her two kids, Maddox and Zahara, before she gave birth to their first daughter, Shiloh, in 2006. They adopted son Pax in 2007, and in 2008, Jolie gave birth to twins Vivienne and Knox. Jolie and Pitt got engaged in 2012, and then married in 2014. Like Jolie, Pitt is active with humanitarian causes, and launched his Make It Right Foundation after Hurricane Katrina.
