Following a high-profile relationship with actress Gwyneth Paltrow (6 walls), Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston (39 walls) for five years. As of 2009 (8 years ago), he lives with actress Angelina Jolie (146 walls) in a relationship that has attracted worldwide media attention. He and Jolie have three adopted children, Maddox, Zahara, and Pax, as well as three biological children, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne. Pitt owns a production company named Plan B Entertainment, which has produced the 2007 (10 years ago) Academy Award winner for Best Picture, The Departed, among other films. Since beginning his relationship with Jolie, he has become increasingly involved in social issues, both in the United States and internationally.
Film and TV workPitt, along with Jennifer Aniston (39 walls) and Paramount pictures (wallpaper) CEO Brad Grey, founded the movie production company Plan B Entertainment in 2002 (15 years ago). Since 2005 (12 years ago), Aniston and Grey are no longer partners.

In addition, Plan B was involved in the production of the 2007 (10 years ago) Best picture (wallpaper) winner The Departed. Pitt was credited onscreen as a producer. However, only Graham King was ruled eligible for the Oscar win. Pitt has been reluctant to discuss the production company in interviews.
Pitt appeared in a Heineken commercial which aired during the 2005 (12 years ago) Super Bowl; it was directed by David Fincher, who also directed Pitt in three feature films, Seven, Fight Club (9 walls) and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Pitt appeared in several TV commercials designed for the Asian market, which advertised such products as SoftBank and Edwin Jeans.
Humanitarian causesPitt supports the ONE Campaign, aimed to fight AIDS and poverty in Third-World countries. He was the narrator of the 2005 (12 years ago) PBS public TV series Rx for Survival: A Global Health Challenge, which discusses current global health issues. In Nov. 2005 (12 years ago), Pitt and Angelina Jolie (146 walls) visited Pakistan to see the impact of the 2005 (12 years ago) Kashmir earthquake. The following year, Pitt and Jolie flew to Haiti and visited a school supported by Yéle Haïti, a charity founded by Haitian-born hip hop musician Wyclef Jean. In May 2007 (10 years ago), Pitt and Jolie donated $1 million to three relief organizations in Chad and Darfur, affected by the crisis in Sudan's Darfur region. Along with Clooney, Damon, Don Cheadle, and Jerry Weintraub, he is one of the founders of Not On Our Watch, an organization that tries to focus global attention and resources to stop and prevent genocide such as in Darfur.
Pitt has a knowledgeable interest in architecture, which he employed in 2006 (11 years ago) to create the Make It Right Foundation. For this project he gathered a group of housing professionals in New Orleans, after Hurricane Katrina, with the object of financing and constructing 150 new houses in New Orleans' Ninth Ward. The houses are being designed with an emphasis on sustainability and affordability. The environmental organization Global Green USA, as well as thirteen architectural firms, are involved in the project. Several of the firms are donating their services. Pitt and philanthropist Steve Bing have each committed $5 million in donations. In Oct. 2008 (9 years ago), the first six homes were completed. Pitt had meetings with U.S. President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi in Mar. 2009 (8 years ago). They promoted his concept of "green housing" as a national model and discussed possibilities of federal funding.
In sep. 2006 (11 years ago), Pitt and Jolie established a charitable organization, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, to aid humanitarian causes around the world. The foundation made initial donations to Global Action for Children and Doctors Without Borders of $1 million dollars each. The following month, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation donated $100,000 to the Daniel Pearl Foundation, an organization created in memory of late American journalist Daniel Pearl. According to federal filings, in 2006 (11 years ago), Pitt and Jolie put $8.5 million into the foundation; it gave away $2.4 million in 2006 (11 years ago), and $3.4 million in 2007 (10 years ago). In Jun. 2009 (8 years ago), the Jolie-Pitt Foundation donated $1 million to a U.N. refugee agency to help Pakistanis displaced by fighting between troops and Taliban militants.
Early lifePitt was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, the son of Jane Etta (née Hillhouse), a high school counselor, and William Alvin Pitt, a truck company owner. Along with his siblings Doug (born 1966 (51 years ago)) and Julie Neal (born 1969 (48 years ago)), he grew up in Springfield, Missouri, where the family moved soon after his birth. He was raised as a conservative Southern Baptist during childhood.
Pitt attended Kickapoo High School, where he was a member of the golf, tennis and swimming teams. In addition, he was a part of the school's Key and Forensics clubs. He participated in school debates and musicals. Following his graduation, Pitt enrolled at the University of Missouri in 1982 (35 years ago). He belonged to the Sigma Chi fraternity, where he acted in several fraternity shows. He majored in journalism, with a focus on advertising. In 1985 (32 years ago), two weeks prior to earning his degree, Pitt left the university and moved to Los Angeles, California to take acting lessons. When asked why he left the university, Pitt responded: "I had this sinking feeling as graduation approached. I saw my friends getting jobs. I wasn't ready to settle down. I loved films. They were a portal into different worlds for me, and Missouri wasn't where movies were made. Then it hit me: If they didn't come to me, I'd go to them."
Personal lifeIn the late 1980 (37 years ago) and the 1990s, Pitt was involved in a series of relationships with several of his co-stars, including Robin Givens (Head of the Class), Jill Schoelen (Cutting Class), and Juliette Lewis (Too Young to Die? and Kalifornia), who at sixteen was ten years his junior when they started dating. Pitt also had a much-publicized romance and engagement to Seven co-star Gwyneth Paltrow (6 walls) whom he dated from 1995 (22 years ago) to 1997 (20 years ago).
Pitt met Friends actress Jennifer Aniston (39 walls) in 1998 (19 years ago) and married her in a private wedding ceremony in Malibu on Jul. 29, 2000 (17 years ago). For years their marriage was considered a rare Hollywood success. However, in Jan. 2005 (12 years ago), Pitt and Aniston announced that they decided to formally separate after seven years together. Two months later, Aniston filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
As Pitt's marriage to Aniston drew to a close, his involvement with actress Angelina Jolie (146 walls) during the filming of Mr. & Mrs. Smith turned into a well-publicized Hollywood scandal. While Pitt denied any claims of adultery, he admitted that he "fell in love" with Jolie on the set, and said that production was still going on for Mr. & Mrs. Smith after he and Aniston had separated.
In Apr. 2005 (12 years ago), one month after Aniston filed for divorce, a set of paparazzi photographs emerged; the photographs, which showed Pitt, Jolie and her son Maddox at a beach in Kenya, seemed to confirm the rumors of a relationship between Pitt and Jolie. During the summer, the two were seen together with increasing frequency, and the entertainment media dubbed the couple "Brangelina". Pitt and Aniston's final divorce documents were granted by the Los Angeles Superior Court on Oct. 2, 2005 (12 years ago), and ended their marriage. On Jan. 11, 2006 (11 years ago), Jolie confirmed to People that she was pregnant with Pitt's child and thereby confirmed their relationship for the first time in public. In an Oct. 2006 (11 years ago) interview with Esquire, Pitt said that he and Jolie would marry "when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able".
Despite media reports that Pitt and Aniston have an acrimonious relationship, in a Feb. 2009 (8 years ago) interview, Pitt said that he and Aniston "check in with each other". Also adding, "She was a big part of my life, and me hers." In an Oct. 2007 (10 years ago) interview, Pitt revealed that he is no longer a Christian nor believes in an afterlife. "There's peace in understanding that I have only one life, here and now, and I'm responsible." In Jul. 2009 (8 years ago), he said in an interview that he did not believe in God, and that he was "probably 20 percent atheist and 80 percent agnostic."

In dec. 2005 (12 years ago), it was confirmed that Pitt was seeking to legally adopt Jolie's two children, Maddox and Zahara. On Jan. 19, 2006 (11 years ago), a judge in California approved this request, and the children's legal surnames were formally changed to "Jolie-Pitt".
Jolie gave birth to a daughter, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, in Swakopmund, Namibia, on May 27, 2006 (11 years ago). Pitt confirmed that their newly born daughter would have a Namibian passport. The couple sold the first pictures (wallpaper) of Shiloh through the distributor Getty Images. People paid more than $4.1 million for the North American rights, while British magazine Hello! obtained the international rights for roughly $3.5 million; the total rights sale earned up to $10 million worldwide. The profits were donated to an undisclosed charity by Pitt and Jolie. Madame Tussauds in New York unveiled a wax figure of two-month-old Shiloh, making Shiloh the first infant to have a statue at Madame Tussauds.
On Mar. 15, 2007 (10 years ago), Jolie adopted a three-year-old boy from Vietnam, Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt (originally Pax Thien Jolie).

Following months of media speculation, Jolie confirmed she was expecting twins at the 2008 (9 years ago) Cannes movie Festival. On Jul. 12, 2008 (9 years ago), Jolie gave birth to the couple's twins, a boy named Knox Léon and a girl named Vivienne Marcheline at the Lenval hospital in Nice, France. The rights for the first images (wallpaper) of Knox and Vivienne were jointly sold to People and Hello! for $14 million—the most expensive celebrity pictures (wallpaper) ever taken. The money went to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
