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’s first couple of appearances were in television series such as Dallas, Growing Pains, and Glory Days. In 1989, Pitt made his big day debut in the horror film Cutting Class.

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.
