Brad Pitt‘s name is synonymous with success, drive, ambition, and talent — and rightfully so. Pitt has been in the acting realm since the late 1980s, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down now. 

On Dec. 18, 1963, Pitt was born in Oklahoma, where he lived until his family relocated to Missouri. Pitt attended the University of Missouri and studied journalism and advertising. He grew a lot during college, and with only two credits left before graduation, he realized that he wasn’t chasing his dream.

Pitt’s dream was in movies, and he didn’t want to waste a moment traveling down a path that would lead him anywhere else. As he told Esquire, after a couple of weeks working with his father, he packed up his car and headed to sunny California. 

His career in the entertainment industry began in 1987 with uncredited roles in Hunk, No Way Out, No Man’s Land, and Less Than Zero. He was also undergoing acting lessons from the legendary Roy London during that time. He had roles in television series, such as Growing Pains, 21 Jumpstreet, and Dallas

Pitt continued taking parts until he landed Cutting Class in 1989 and Thelma & Louise in 1991. Both films are considered break-out roles for the actor, and from there, Hollywood began to take notice. A River Runs Through It and Interview With the Vampire followed shortly after, and it wasn’t long until the world was falling for Pitt. 

Of course, his rise to stardom only continued, and we’ve seen Pitt tackle several characters, storylines, and a number of heartwarming and breaking ups and downs through his career. 

The 90s continued with some of Pitt’s most lauded roles in films like Seven, 12 Monkeys, Legends of the Fall, Meet Joe Black, and of course — Fight Club. We laughed, cried, and recoiled at the trials and tribulations of Pitt’s characters as he solidified himself as an actor to watch and an immeasurable talent. 

The 2000s brought us films like Oceans 11 and Troy (where — let’s face it — the world swooned over Pitt and his toned abs and long blonde hair). We were also given the highly regarded Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Inglourious Basterds, and World War Z. We still can’t drink a Pepsi without thinking of Pitt after that one.

Celebrity Net Worth lists Pitt’s net worth at $300 Million, and with a career as lasting and impactful as his, it’s no surprise.  

While there have been periods of Pitt’s career where he spends less time in front of the camera, the actor stays true to his passion and dream. He loves being amid the entertainment realm and breathing life into characters we know, love, and sometimes loathe. 

From Tyler Durden and Gerry Lane to Sergeant Don “Wardaddy” Collier and Cliff Booth, the world can’t get enough of Pitt, and we hope we won’t soon have to. 

In addition to Pitt’s various roles, he’s also been behind the camera — even more in recent years as a producer and co-founder of Plan B Entertainment. Of course, because of his immense talent, he’s also an award winner of two Academy Awards, two BAFTAs, two Golden Globes, and 1 Primetime Emmy, in addition to several other honors and accolades for his contributions to entertainment. 

Pitt has been an open book during his time in the entertainment realm — acknowledging his successes and shortcomings. For as much as his fans hold him in high regard for his talent, they also look up to him for his openness and vulnerability. 

Be it behind the camera or (hopefully) in front of it, we’re hoping his legacy in the business continues to be a long-lasting one.
