Brad Pitt Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

William Bradley Pitt was born on 18 December 1963, in Shawnee, Oklahoma USA,  and is an actor considered by many to be one of the sexiest and most handsome men in the entertainment world, but also the winner of a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a multiple nominee for Academy Awards, which have also made a great impact on Pitt’s net worth.

So just how rich is Brad Pitt? Authoritative sources have estimated that Brad has a net worth of over $250 million, earned mostly through acting and film producing, during a career in the entertainment industry now spanning nearly 30 years.

Brad Pitt Net Worth $250 Million

Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane Etta Hillhouse, worked as a school counsellor, whereas his father, William Alvin Pitt, was the owner of a trucking company – he was raised a Southern Baptist (but is no longer religious) and attended Kickapoo High School after the family moved to Springfield, Missouri. He almost completed his degree in advertising and journalism at the University of Missouri, but within two weeks od graduating declined to do so, and instead took acting lessons in Los Angeles.

Subsequently, Brad  began his career as well as net worth accumulation in 1987, with small roles in the films ‘No Way Out’ directed by Roger Donaldson, ‘No Man’s Land’ directed by Peter Werner and ‘Less Than Zero’ directed by Marek Kanievska. Moreover, he appeared in the episodes of the television series ‘Another World’ created by Irna Phillips, William J. Bell, ‘Growing Pains’ created by Neal Marlens, ‘Dallas’ by David Jacobs, ’21 Jump Street’ by Patrick Hasburgh, Stephen J. Cannell, which proved the basis for his net worth.

Pitt’s first leading role was landed in the American-Yugoslav drama film ‘Dark Side of the Sun’ directed by Božidar Nikolić. Until 1994, Brad appeared in a number of films, television films and series, but he did not received worldwide attention. However, Pitt’s popularity increased and his net worth have risen significantly since then. ‘Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles’ directed by Neil Jordan was the first step which brought Brad fame, and won him a MTV Movie Awards. ‘Legends of the Fall’ directed by Edward Zwick brought positive critics reviews, and a nomination for a Golden Globe Award. ‘Seven’ directed by David Fincher brought an MTV Movie Award, proving very popular with audiences as the box office grossed $327 million dollars. A Golden Globe Award and the nomination of Academy Award for the Best Supporting Actor Brad received for his role in the science fiction film directed by Terry Gilliam ’12 Monkeys’, then David Flincher’s film ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ was worth thirteen Academy Nominations, and personally for Brad it brought three nominations, a Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination for the Best Actor. Appearances in “Ocean’s Eleven”(2001), “Ocean’s Twelve”(2004) and Ocean’s Thirteen”(2007) all proved popular with the public, and  ‘Inglourious Basterds'(2009) directed by Quentin Tarantino was also well received by critics and cinema goers as the box office grossed $321 million, and a further nomination for Brad Pitt. All those honours also helped add considerably to Brad Pitt’s net worth financially and in popularity with directors and audiences, in fact overall Brad has been nominated for almost 150 awards, and has won nearly 50.

Furthermore, Pitt added much to his net worth being a  producer; his works include the films ‘God Grew Tired of Us’, ‘The Tehuacan Project’, ‘Year of the Dog’, ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’, ‘The Private Lives of Pippa Lee’ among other films.

In his personal life, Brad Pitt dated actresses Robin Givens, Jill Schoelen and Juliette Lewis, before  marrying actress Jennifer Aniston in 2000 –  the couple divorced after five years, since when Brad has been in a relationship with Angelina Jolie with whom he now has three children; they married in 2014, but Angelina sued for divorce in late 2016, although along the way they have also adopted three non-American children, whose futures will need to be decided.

#Quote
1[on The Devil's Own (1997)] We had no script. Well, we had a great script but it got tossed for various reasons. To have to make something up as you go along - Jesus, what pressure! It was ridiculous. It was the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking - if you can even call it that - that I've ever seen. The movie was the complete victim of this drowning studio head (Mark Canton) who said, "I don't care. We're making it. I don't care what you have. Shoot something."
2[2012, on The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)] Jesse James is absolutely one of my favourites, and I think the more it decants the better it gets. About three other people think that as well, but I think it's got legs. It's elegant. Andrew Dominik is a phenomenal director.
3[on World War Z (2013)] We liked this idea of taking a genre and using that as, I guess, a metaphor for pandemics, and if one of those pandemics jumped the tracks. Would we be ready? What countries would be in better shape, what countries would take the biggest hit? A movie is only good if it speaks about our time, if it's personal in some way, and it plugs into the zeitgeist to irritate a little bit. I think we got that here.
4I think I'm at a point now where I feel like I can jump into anything and lay something down that's quality. Someone may be better at it - or maybe not - but I know that if I have a feeling for it, then I can make it interesting. But even more as I get older, it's about the company that I keep. That's the most important thing to me - that if I'm gonna spend however long it takes to make a movie, give up 14 hours a day for however many weeks or months, then it's very important for me to know that I'm working with people who I respect and enjoy and that we're going for something together.
5[2012: on whether he would consider becoming a director] No, not a chance. It makes sense on some level, but I really enjoy being a creative producer and I enjoy my day job as an actor. It's enough for me. I want to also be a dad, first and foremost. After two days it gets itchy. I miss them. I just know how I'd be. I see how much time it takes to mount the thing and put it together. It wouldn't be a good match.
6I grew up very religious, and I don't have a great relationship with religion. I oscillate between agnosticism and atheism.
7[2012: while accepting the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor for Moneyball (2011) and The Tree of Life (2011)] This is a really big honor for me, considering I'm a guy who had never ridden in an airplane until I was 25. That first trip was here in 1989 to New York. I had an audition for a soap opera. But I had to put myself up, and I stayed at a friend's apartment. That apartment was in the Village on Christopher Street. My first impression of the city was: my god, there's a lot of guys around here. But they're so nice. This is a real pleasure for me to see some of the faces behind the formidable names that instill such fear and reverence in the film industry, although I thought you'd be taller. We are complex, we are mysteries to ourselves, we are difficult to each other, we live in continual flux and instability and conflict. Christians and Muslims, Democrats and Republicans, Denby and Rudin.
8[on the Academy Awards nomination process] I've been around long enough to know it's very fickle and it's a cyclical wheel. But I will say this: it's surprisingly fun when your number comes up.
9[on playing the leading character in The Tree of Life (2011)] That's certainly not my father. But I do understand the father-knows-best mentality, the oppression the father figure can have on his kids, the pressure he is under to be the leader and provide, and feeling like he's falling short and having wants and desires himself. The tragedy is coming home and bringing that on the kids, and then feeling bad about it. It's just this vicious cycle.
10[on the stress of filming Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)] One day, it broke me... I called David Geffen, who was a producer... I said, "David, I can't do this anymore. I can't do it. How much will it take to get me out?". And he goes, very calmly, "Forty million dollars.".
11[2011, on his religious upbringing] I had my problems with it. It doesn't work for me. I had a lot of questions. But to get to that point where I actually questioned something that I'd based my life on - it wasn't until I was 20 that I really started separating from it, knowing that the ideas didn't make sense. I remember this scary moment where I didn't have anything to pin my existence on, to be comforted by. At the same time, it didn't work for me, man. I had to go up against this thing. I've since... My family accepts me for who I am and they worry for me because I'm gonna burn in an eternal pit of fire. But...
12[2011, on learning to be a parent] I was surprised at how automatic it is, how much of it is instinctual. And now I have a great confidence and trust in those instincts. I mean, one sound at night and you're awake and up because they may need you. Or when they start to have a tantrum, you know to divert them from spinning out by helping them focus on something. It just goes on and on. I tell them, "You can make a mess, but you've got to clean it up.".
13[2011, on Angelina Jolie] One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I'm so happy to have her.
14[2011] I spent the '90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic. It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn't living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage [to Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't.
15There are no secrets in our house. We tell the kids, "Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.".
16[on comparing his own parenting style with that of his character in The Tree of Life (2011)]: They say actions speak louder than words. It's even more true with my kids. And so it's quite important to me not to put my frustrations on them or bring them in the door. I want to keep them to be free and not encumbered with my junk. In the film it's the exact opposite. I find it very sad, a very sad man who was embittered by his situation, doesn't feel he can get ahead, always feels like he's on the losing end, feels quite oppressed by his surroundings and predicament, doesn't know why it isn't working out for him and why is it working out for other people. That poisoned view of things.
17We make breakfast like everyone else and it's chaos and pancake batter splashed all over the place and bath time at night. Ultimately, I'm dad. I have the concerns a dad has. Is everyone safe? Am I spending enough time with them? These are the things that keep me awake.
18[1998, on why he moved to Los Angeles] A lot of the attraction before I came out was the fame, the lifestyle... now my motivation is more, "I want to be good!".
19[2009] What's valuable to me has become clearer as I've got older. To me, it's about the value of your time and your day and the value of the people you spend it with. It's about me being a strong father and guide and a good match for my significant other. Then, if I'm going to go to work, it must be something of value to me. I'm much more experienced now, so I can find films that are interesting quicker and cut out the films that don't really matter. It means more to me now because my kids are going to see them, and I want them to be proud.
20Fame makes you feel permanently like a girl walking past construction workers.
21[on being dumped by ex-fiancée Jill Schoelen in 1989] She called me up in Los Angeles and was crying on the phone. She was lonely and there was a huge drama. At this point, I had $800 to my name and I spent $600 of it getting a ticket from Los Angeles to Hungary to see her. I got there, went straight to the set where she was filming and that night we went out to dinner. She told me that she had fallen in love with the director of the film. I was so shocked I said, "I'm outta here." I spent my night in Budapest, sitting on a bench, smoking, with just a local bum to talk to who couldn't speak English. These are the days and nights you remember when you have success. I returned to America absolutely broke. This is why recognition does not bother me too much.
22[2010 - on New Orleans] Truthfully, my favorite sound in the entire world is opening up the balcony doors in the French Quarter and hearing four different sounds playing at once from the apartments across the way or down the street. It's a balmy night, twilight, and I'm drinking a beer, and this feeling just falls over me, of contentment. It gives me goosebumps to talk about it.
23[on Quentin Tarantino] The set is heaven and he is God. Heretics are not allowed.
24[on how his earlier, lesser film roles ultimately improved him as an actor]: I believe I'm quite capable and we, as people, can learn to do anything, and that's proof of it! And my education is on film, on record! Now I can take on anything that comes my way and find truth in it an do a pretty good job.
25[on how his children will influence his future roles] My thoughts these days are, "Oh, my God, what did I do? What are they going to see from the past?". It definitely colors what I'll approach in the future. I'll try to be a little bit more mature about my decisions.
26[on having children] It really changes your perspective on the world. You know, I've had my day. I made some films, and I've really had a very fortunate life, and it's time for me to share that a little bit. Having children takes the focus off yourself, which I'm really grateful for. I'm so tired of thinking about myself. I'm sick of myself. You feel you want to be there and not miss out on anything. It's a true joy and a very profound love. You can write a book, you can make a movie, you can paint a painting, but having kids is the most extraordinary thing I've ever taken on.
27[2003] It's amazing what an impending midlife crisis will do for you, really. It got me motivated, having turned 40 in December.
28[May 2005, on his impending divorce to Jennifer Aniston] The thing I don't understand is looking at this as a failure. It's talked about like it failed, I guess because it wasn't flawless. Me, I embrace the messiness of life. I find it so beautiful, actually.
29[when asked by Conan O'Brien how he got into character as stoner Floyd in True Romance (1993)] I'm a method actor.
30When you see a person, do you just concentrate on their looks? It's just a first impression. Then there's someone who doesn't catch your eye immediately, but you talk to them and they become the most beautiful thing in the world. The greatest actors aren't what you would call beautiful sex symbols. I'll tell you who my favorite actress is, Dianne Wiest, and you wouldn't call her a sex symbol. Dianne Wiest is, to me, the most beautiful woman on the screen.
31[Time magazine, October 13, 1997] You shouldn't speak until you know what you're talking about. That's why I get uncomfortable with interviews. Reporters ask me what I feel China should do about Tibet. Who cares what I think China should do? I'm a f---ing actor! They hand me a script. I act. I'm here for entertainment. Basically, when you whittle everything away, I'm a grown man who puts on makeup.
32Success is a beast. And it actually puts the emphasis on the wrong thing. You get away with more instead of looking within.
33I'm one of those people you hate because of genetics. It's the truth.
34[on what keeps him humble] You know, I telephoned my grandparents the other day, and my grandfather said to me, "We saw your movie." "Which one?". I said, and he shouted, "Betty, what was the name of that movie I didn't like?". I thought that was just classic. I mean, if that doesn't keep your feet on the ground, what would?
35[Viasat magazine, May 2001] Fame is a bitch, man.
36I'd like to design something like a city or a museum. I want to do something hands on rather than just play golf which is the sport of the religious right.
37I'm gonna design my own fleet of trailers. No! I'm gonna record an album like Jennifer Lopez. It'll be an acoustic version of KC & The Sunshine Band. Then maybe I'll design a line of clothes like [Sean Combs] but all in synthetic fur.
38[2012, on The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)] Jesse James is absolutely one of my favourites, and I think the more it decants the better it gets. About three other people think that as well, but I think it's got legs. It's elegant. Andrew Dominik is a phenomenal director.
39[on World War Z (2013)] We liked this idea of taking a genre and using that as, I guess, a metaphor for pandemics, and if one of those pandemics jumped the tracks. Would we be ready? What countries would be in better shape, what countries would take the biggest hit? A movie is only good if it speaks about our time, if it's personal in some way, and it plugs into the zeitgeist to irritate a little bit. I think we got that here.
40I think I'm at a point now where I feel like I can jump into anything and lay something down that's quality. Someone may be better at it - or maybe not - but I know that if I have a feeling for it, then I can make it interesting. But even more as I get older, it's about the company that I keep. That's the most important thing to me - that if I'm gonna spend however long it takes to make a movie, give up 14 hours a day for however many weeks or months, then it's very important for me to know that I'm working with people who I respect and enjoy and that we're going for something together.
41[2012: on whether he would consider becoming a director] No, not a chance. It makes sense on some level, but I really enjoy being a creative producer and I enjoy my day job as an actor. It's enough for me. I want to also be a dad, first and foremost. After two days it gets itchy. I miss them. I just know how I'd be. I see how much time it takes to mount the thing and put it together. It wouldn't be a good match.
42I grew up very religious, and I don't have a great relationship with religion. I oscillate between agnosticism and atheism.
43[2012: while accepting the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor for Moneyball (2011) and The Tree of Life (2011)] This is a really big honor for me, considering I'm a guy who had never ridden in an airplane until I was 25. That first trip was here in 1989 to New York. I had an audition for a soap opera. But I had to put myself up, and I stayed at a friend's apartment. That apartment was in the Village on Christopher Street. My first impression of the city was: my god, there's a lot of guys around here. But they're so nice. This is a real pleasure for me to see some of the faces behind the formidable names that instill such fear and reverence in the film industry, although I thought you'd be taller. We are complex, we are mysteries to ourselves, we are difficult to each other, we live in continual flux and instability and conflict. Christians and Muslims, Democrats and Republicans, Denby and Rudin.
44[on the Academy Awards nomination process] I've been around long enough to know it's very fickle and it's a cyclical wheel. But I will say this: it's surprisingly fun when your number comes up.
45[on playing the leading character in The Tree of Life (2011)] That's certainly not my father. But I do understand the father-knows-best mentality, the oppression the father figure can have on his kids, the pressure he is under to be the leader and provide, and feeling like he's falling short and having wants and desires himself. The tragedy is coming home and bringing that on the kids, and then feeling bad about it. It's just this vicious cycle.
46[on the stress of filming Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)] One day, it broke me... I called David Geffen, who was a producer... I said, "David, I can't do this anymore. I can't do it. How much will it take to get me out?". And he goes, very calmly, "Forty million dollars.".
47[2011, on his religious upbringing] I had my problems with it. It doesn't work for me. I had a lot of questions. But to get to that point where I actually questioned something that I'd based my life on - it wasn't until I was 20 that I really started separating from it, knowing that the ideas didn't make sense. I remember this scary moment where I didn't have anything to pin my existence on, to be comforted by. At the same time, it didn't work for me, man. I had to go up against this thing. I've since... My family accepts me for who I am and they worry for me because I'm gonna burn in an eternal pit of fire. But...
48[2011, on learning to be a parent] I was surprised at how automatic it is, how much of it is instinctual. And now I have a great confidence and trust in those instincts. I mean, one sound at night and you're awake and up because they may need you. Or when they start to have a tantrum, you know to divert them from spinning out by helping them focus on something.
