William Bradley Pitt born on December 18th 1963 in Shawnee Oklahoma. His Mother Jane Etta (née Hillhouse) a High School Counselor and his Father William Alvin Pitt was the owner of a truck company. He has a brother and a sister. Doug was born in 1966 and Julie was born 1969. Brad and his family grew up in Springfield Missouri and was raised as a conservative Southern Baptist.
Brad attended Kickapoo High School where he was a member of the golf, tennis and swimming teams. He participated in the school's Key and Forensics clubs, in school debates, and in musicals. Following his graduation from high school, Pitt enrolled in the University of Missouri in 1982, majoring in journalism, with a focus on advertising. As a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity, he acted in several fraternity shows. As graduation approached, Pitt saw his friends getting jobs but did not feel ready to settle down himself. He loved films—"a portal into different worlds for me"—and, since films were not made in Missouri, he decided he would go to where they were made. Two weeks before earning his degree, Pitt left the university and moved to Los Angeles where he took acting lessons and worked odd jobs. He was a chauffeur and dressed up as an El Pollo Loco chicken to pay for acting lessons.
Brad has gotten involved with many of his co-stars including Robin Givens,Jill Schoelen,Juliet Lewis(who was sixteen at the time),Gwyneth Paltrow,Jenifer Aniston and of course Angelina Jolie.
My favorites films he has been in are Thelma and Louise,Contact,A River Runs Through It,Kalifornia,True Romance,Interview with the Vampire,Legends of the Fall,Seven,12 Monkeys,Meet Joe Black,Fight Club,Being John Malkovitch,Snatch and Ocean's Eleven.
