BRAD Pitt is one of the biggest movie stars in the world and he’s hitting headlines once again as he moves on from his split with wife Angelina Jolie.
Having starred in blockbusters like Fight Club, Ocean’s Eleven and Snatch, Pitt is worth a pretty penny – here’s the lowdown on the hunky Hollywood star.
How old is Brad Pitt?
William Bradley Pitt, 53, was born on December 18, 1963 and grew up in Springfield, Missouri with his dad William, mum Jane Etta, brother Douglas and sister Julie.
His father ran a trucking company while his mother worked as a school counsellor.
Pitt excelled at sports in high school and was on the golf, swimming and tennis teams and also performed in school musicals.
He went on to enroll at the University of Missouri where he majored in journalism but just two weeks before the end of his degree he moved to LA where he started acting lessons and worked odd jobs to get by.
Brad landed small roles in TV shows before finally making it to the big time.
What are his biggest movie roles?
After moving to LA, Brad spent a few years landing small parts in TV shows and indie movies and some of his early roles included appearances on Dallas and 21 Jump Street.
However, his luck changed when he garnered widespread recognition for his roles in Ridley Scott’s 1991 smash hit Thelma & Louise and Robert Redford’s A River Runs Through It in 1992.
1994 was his breakout year thanks to his role as vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac in horror film Interview With A Vampire, which also starred Tom Cruise, Kirsten Dunst and Christian Slater.
He would then go on to star in cult classic Seven, Legends Of The Fall, and 12 Monkeys – a performance which earned him his first Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Brad’s next big hit was now cult classic Fight Club and he followed that up by playing an Irish traveller in Guy Ritchie’s gangster film Snatch.
His next box office smash hit was the 2001 remake of Ocean’s Eleven which also starred Julia Roberts, Matt Damon and his close pal George Clooney.
In what his possibly one of his most memorable roles due to the tabloid gossip that surrounded it, Pitt starred opposite Angelina Jolie in Mr & Mrs Smith, where a married couple discover they are professional assassins and have been hired to kill one another.
Other notable roles include The Departed, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Inglorious Basterds and World War Z.
How much is he worth?
It’s believed Brad’s net worth stands at a bank-busting £184 million but that could change when he finalises his divorce from Angelina Jolie.
Brad and Angelina own a number of impressive properties across the globe including two houses in Los Feliz.
They also own the amazing estate of Chateau Miraval in France which is believed to be worth £40million and underwent extensive renovations.
Remarkably, the homes that make up Miraval are believed to boast 35 bedrooms and span across 1,000 acres of land.
The couple also owned a historic mansion in New Orleans, which they sold last October after announcing their divorce.
It’s also believed the couple also own an eight-bedroom seaside property in Majorca.
Who has he been married to and is he single?
Brad married Friends star Jennifer Aniston in a private ceremony on July 29, 2000.
The couple were the darlings of the celebrity world until 2005 when they announced their separation amid rumours Brad had cheated on Jen with Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith.
Jen filed for divorce in March and a month later Brad was pictured on holiday with Angelina and her son Maddox in Kenya.
Brad and Jen’s divorce was finalised in October 2005 and in January 2006, Jolie confirmed she was pregnant with Brad’s child.
Brad and Angelina announced their engagement in April 2012 after seven years together and married in August 2014 at their French chateau.
Brad adopted Angelina’s son Maddox, 15, and they were also parents to Zahara, 12k, Shiloh, 11, Pax, 13, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
The couple then shocked the world when they announced their plans to divorce in September 2016.
Meanwhile, The Sun exclusively revealed Brad was seen holding hands with Sienna Miller at Glastonbury last weekend in what would be his first romance since separating from Jolie.
The couple are determined to keep their budding love story under wraps – and friends told The Sun that the pair are besotted with each other.
