Pre-acting, Brad Pitt supported himself by driving strippers in limos, moving refrigerators, and dressing as a giant chicken.

Pitt was born William Bradley Pitt in Shawnee, Oklahoma, but was raised in Missouri. He was named after his father and has a younger brother and sister. After high school, he went to the University of Missouri majoring in journalism with a focus on advertising. 

While he was there, he posed for a school calendar and acted in some short plays. Two credits short of graduating, he left for California. There, he made his money by driving strippers in limos, moving refrigerators, and being the giant chicken for Pollo Loco. 

He was engaged to Gwyneth Paltrow in 1996 and married Jennifer Aniston in 2000. In 1999 a 19 year old girl climbed in through his window and put his clothes on. She hung out in his house for 10 hours until his alarm clock woke him up. Creepy! Even though he is popular here in the states, China has banned him from entering their country after he starred in the film “Seven Years in Tibet.”
