 [1 Content]

One half of the Hollywood super couple "Brangelina," Brad Pitt is one of the most talented and versatile actors of his generation. Pitt was born in Oklahoma in 1963. He was an instant audience pleaser with his breakout role as a cowboy hitchhiker in "Thelma & Louise." His performance in the serial killer thriller "Se7en" (1995) was critically acclaimed. Soon after, he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor and an Oscar nomination for his role in the science fiction film "12 Monkeys" (1995). Pitt has also graced the silver screen in classics such as cult favorite "Fight Club" (1999), "Ocean's Eleven" (2001) and its sequels, "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" (2005) and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008). His biggest box office hits have been "Troy" (2004) and "Mr. & Mrs. Smith." Pitt has been romantically linked to a few Hollywood beauties, first Gwenyth Paltrow, then Jennifer Aniston, to whom he was married for five years. His alleged affair with Angelina Jolie while filming "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" spelled the end of his marriage to Aniston, and the beginning of his relationship with Jolie, which continues to this day. Though they remain unmarried, the pair lives together with their six children. For a number of years, the two have been the most talked about stars in Hollywood.
