Biography

The illustrious William Bradley "Brad" Pitt, a royal subject born on December 18, 1963 in Shawnee, Oklahoma, was raised in Springfield, Missouri by Jane Etta Pitt (née Hillhouse), a school counselor, and William Alvin "Bill" Pitt, a truck company manager. At Kickapoo High School, Pitt distinguished himself, excelling in sports, debating, student government, and school musicals, and went on to attend the University of Missouri, where he majored in journalism with a focus on advertising. His ambition to pursue a career in acting was so great that he left college two credits short of graduating to move to California, where he supported himself during those early days by driving strippers in limos, moving refrigerators, and dressing - quite unbelievably - as a giant chicken while working for El Pollo Loco. Pitt's earliest credited roles were in television, starting with the daytime soap opera Another World (1964) before appearing in the recurring role of Randy on Growing Pains (1985–1989).
