Pitt has been in Hollywood since the ’80s, and his career has skyrocketed throughout the decades. He began with minor roles on “Another World” and “Growing Pains.” The actor also had a small, but highly memorable, part in 1991’s “Thelma and Louise.”
He went on to star in films like “A River Runs Through It,” “Interview With the Vampire,” and “Fight Club.” Pitt has also earned Oscar nominations for his roles in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “Moneyball.”
In 2014, Pitt won his first Oscar – but not for acting. It was for producing the historical drama “12 Years a Slave” under his production company, Plan B Entertainment. He has also produced “Okja,” “The OA,” and Netflix’s new drama film “The King.”
