Pitt

Actor / Producer

Brad Pitt seemed to emerge fully formed in the American pop psyche when he burst onto the scene more than two decades ago as a full-fledged sex symbol. The consummate Hollywood heartthrob who makes just as much news for his high-profile marriages and bitter breakups (Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie) as for his acting credits, Pitt has helped to define celebrity for the new millennium.

Arguably the defining sex symbol of his generation, Pitt has nevertheless defied easy labels: He’s a blockbuster star who’s also a gifted character actor, using his scene-stealing charisma to surprising effect. An unpredictable, dynamic talent, he has consistently backed bold and daring films through his company, Plan B Entertainment, including Oscar-winner “12 Years a Slave,” “Selma,” and “Moonlight.”

Born in Shawnee, Okla., Pitt broke out with a small but memorable part in the 1991 road movie “Thelma and Louise.” He soon shot to fame starring in films like “Interview with the Vampire,” “Seven,” and “12 Monkeys,” for which he earned an Oscar nomination. He quickly became one of the world’s most-recognizable stars. A six-time Academy Award nominee, he won his first Oscar in 2014 as the producer of “12 Years a Slave.” His next film project is the sci-fi adventure “Ad Astra.”
