    Short Biography
    Brad Pitt (born William Bradley Pitt on December 18, 1963), is an American film actor, and one of the most widely recognized people in the world.
    He was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma to strictly Southern Baptist parents of mainly British and Irish descent and was raised in Springfield, Missouri.

    In high school, Pitt was involved in sports, debating, student government, and school musicals. He attended the University of Missouri School of Journalism where he was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. He was two credits shy of graduating with a journalism degree, before trying his luck in Hollywood.

    Before he became successful at acting, Pitt supported himself as a chauffer, by working as a furniture mover, and as a costumed mascot for the restaurant chain El Pollo Loco. In the late 1980s, Pitt started landing acting gigs on prime-time series such as Dallas, thirtysomething, 21 Jump Street, Another World, Growing Pains, and Head of the Class. In 1988, he finally landed his first starring role in The Dark Side of the Sun. But as the film was being edited, civil war tore apart Yugoslavia, where location shooting was taking place. Most of the footage remained lost until 1997, when the film was finally released.

    In 1991, Pitt finally got his big break in one of that year’’s biggest hits: Thelma & Louise as J.D., Thelma (Geena Davis)’s one-night stand who gives her tips on robbing 7-11 stores. He followed up that success with A River Runs Through It and Se7en.
    In 1995, he was chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 25 sexiest stars in film history. Pitt has also twice been named the “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine, the only person to ever receive this honor more than once, and is consistently rated as the world’’s sexiest man in womens” polls worldwide.
    Pitt was involved in a long-term relationship with actress Gwyneth Paltrow. They became engaged in December 1996, but it didn”t last long and the two split up in June 1997. Extensive tabloid coverage surrounded the relationship. Nude photographs of the couple — taken by paparazzi without permission — controversially appeared in magazines.

    Also in 1997, the film Seven Years in Tibet was released. This film, which chronicled China’’s invasion of Tibet, was hailed by Tibetian nationalists and resulted in Brad Pitt, along with his co-star David Thewlis being banned from entering China for life.
    He married actress Jennifer Aniston on July 29, 2000. Their separation was announced on January 7, 2005, and Aniston filed for a divorce on March 25 the same year. There has been speculation that the marriage ended due to Aniston’s refusal to have children with Pitt, which he greatly desired.

    After seperation from Aniston, Pitt began dating actress Angelina Jolie. Pitt accompanied Jolie to Ethiopia in July 2005 to pick up her adopted daughter Zahara from an orphanage in that country. After returning, Pitt was diagnosed with a mild case of viral meningitis. He checked himself into Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles but was released a few days later. Though reluctant to embrace celebrity status, the philanthropic Pitt has been an active supporter of research into diseases, such as AIDS. Unlike many Hollywood celebrities he has remained largely bipartisan, working with members of both parties to help fight poverty, disease and improve global environmental conditions.

    Along with U2 frontman Bono, and TV evangelist Pat Robertson, Pitt has used his celebrity to campaign for assistance to Africa, and is the marquee spokesman for the ONE Campaign. Pitt has also traveled oversees to visit and entertain U.S. and allied troops.
    He was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the 1995 film Twelve Monkeys.
