Brad Pitt – Springfield’s Hometown Sweetheart

Brad Pitt is a famous movie star and also a producer. He was born on December 18th, 1963, in Shawnee, Oklahoma, but he did not spend his whole life there. Brad Pitt grew up in Springfield, Missouri. His father was the owner of a trucking company and his mother worked as a family counselor.

Brad Pitt was the oldest of three children. He went to Kickapoo high school and he was quite athletic, playing for the golf, tennis and swimming teams. He also took part in debates and stared in musicals. He went to the University of Missouri in the 1980s, but when he was due to graduate, he decided that he would like to pursue acting seriously instead of settling down, and that’s when he went to work on odd jobs while trying to build his acting career.

It did not take long for Pitt to become recognized as a Hollywood Hunk, and he has appeared in some of the most iconic films of the last two decades, being known for his versatility and his acting skills. From Fight Club in the late 1990s to Troy in 2004, and Fury more recently, he is both prolific and talented.
