How is Brad Pitt doing? Better than ever.

If you don’t know the name Brad Pitt, you probably live under a rock. But if you have seen Fight Club maybe a few hundred times, you are in the right place!

William Bradley Pitt —known to all of us simply as legendary heartthrob, Brad Pitt — is an American actor and producer who has a lengthy and impressive resume. Born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, Pitt didn’t start out famous — he started his career in the film industry in college, after having a change of heart and dropping out of school just two credits shy of graduating from the University of Missouri. Brad Pitt headed straight to Los Angeles, California, at the age of 24, where he spent his first couple of months as a chauffer and delivering refrigerators while trying to figure out how to become an actor.

Soon after, he landed a role in the film Across The Tracks, which gave him the attention to be picked up for Thelma and Louise. Although he received a short bit of screen time in this film, it was enough for everyone to rewind their VCR’s and pause those moments where the (a little older than) teenage heartthrob was present.

Pitt went on to grab numerous acting roles, but one of the biggest was the adaptation of Interview With the Vampire, where he worked alongside Tom Cruise.

Brad Pitt has won multiple awards throughout his acting career, such as Golden Globes, Emmy awards, as well as many nominations.

25 Thought Provoking Quotes & Empowering Ideas From Taraji P. Henson

Sometimes you need to make a change.

Taraji P Henson is well known for her portrayal of Cookie Lyon on the hit Fox series Empire. I grew up watching Taraji on TV, so it’s safe to safe I’m a big fan of hers. I’ve always admired how she always portrays strong women who overcome great obstacles. It’s so inspiring to see women portrayed as girl bosses and intelligent beings

Even her real-life story of graduating from college as a single mother and moving to LA with her son to be an actress is unbelievable. The amount of bravery and self-confidence it took for her to make such a change, goes to show that just like her any woman can accomplish anything they set their minds to.

Out of all the titles Taraji has earned the most influential is an activist. She saw a need within the black community and instead of standing by she found a way to meet that need. She founded a nonprofit organization called the Boris Laurence Henson Foundation, named after her father who suffered from PTSD. The foundation is an outlet for black people to be able to talk about their mental health issues.

Being a black woman myself, I can truthfully say that mental health is something that is dismissed in black culture. No one takes these issues seriously. Telling your parents or older relatives that you are stressed or enduring emotional hardships, is almost seemed as if you’re being dramatic instead of a cry for help. Often they’ll advise you to pray.

Prayer is great but sometimes you need therapy too.

The thought of therapy within itself can be really scary because no one wants to tell a stranger their business, especially one who does not look like them or have to face their struggles. Overall, black people don’t have positive outlets to express their emotions, so we are forced to bottle them up. Bottling up our emotions leads to our past traumas being unaddressed, so they continue to hinder our lives. In an attempt to destigmatize mental health in the black community, Taraji’s foundation is bringing the issue to light and providing resources to help those in need.

Mental health is important for all people of every race.

We all deserve to live a life free of depression, anxiety, and unforgiveness. I hope these quotes will inspire a change in you.

1. God
