2. D Brad dropped out of college, two credits shy of graduating, and moved to California where he had an array of jobs before he had his first big break in the movie Thelma & Louise.
3. A As a Hollywood Adonis, Brad had his choice of women. He briefly dated Robin Givens in ’89 (much to the chagrin of her ex-husband Mike Tyson) then got serious with Juliette Lewis from ’90-93. After a brief stint in ’94 with Thandie Newton he then dated Gwyneth Paltrow who he met on the set of Se7en in ‘95, got engaged by December of ’96 and mutually agreed to split in June ’97. Ironically, in 2000 he ended up marrying his girlfriend of the past two and a half years, Jennifer Aniston, and divorcing her five short years later. It was rumoured that Brad was cheating on Jennifer with Angelina Jolie while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith in ’05. This is all before settling down in love (and babies) with Angelina Jolie for the last 3 years.
4. A Brand and Jennifer went for dinner on their first date in 1998 and kept their relationship hush hush for months after.
5. A Brad and Jennifer’s extravagant wedding took place in Malibu and featured about 200 guests, 50,000 flowers, four bands, a gospel choir and fireworks.
6. B Brad and Angelina adopted babies Maddox (born August 5th 2001 in Cambodia), then Pax (born November 29th 2003 in Vietnam), then Zahara (born January 8th 2005 in Ethiopia), then Angelina got pregnant with baby Shiloh (born May 27th 2006) and is now expecting again, with the twins due sometime this August.
7. B In 2006, when George Clooney was named Sexiest Man Alive, Brad took out two full page ads in Variety and The Hollywood Reporter featuring an old school picture of George (curly mullet and all) and his ‘sincerest’ congrats. George Clooney retaliated by teasing Brad on David Letterman for being named Sexiest Man Alive twice. His gag included pictures of Brad in white tapered pants and a snazzy beret.
8. A Rumours have been swirling that Brad Pitt’s newest tattoo on his lower back is inspired by a map of the levees in New Orleans, which were destroyed in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina.
9. B Brad took home his first Most Desirable Male award in 1995. However, he wouldn’t be Brad if he didn’t win it twice. The following year he took home the title again for his sexy performance in Se7en.
10. D Shania dismisses Brad’s stellar looks and adorable personality by singing, “So you’re Brad Pitt, that don’t impress me much.” All I have to say is yeah right.
11. D Brad is not one of these celebs who only donates large sums of cash, he donates his time as well. He has been known to use his vacation time to go and support Sole of Africa, a charity dedicated to removing landmines and world hunger, or to head to New Orleans and check in on his project Make It Right, which helps survivors of Hurricane Katrina.
12. B Recent Oscar winner George Clooney takes a jab at Brad (yet again) this past April when he told Access Hollywood, “That’s what I enjoy doing with Brad is gloating. Because things aren’t going well for him.”
13. B In 2007 Brad raked in approximately $35 million for his movies, including such hits as Oceans Thirteen. In that same year, Angelina brought in about $20 million from her movies and endorsements. Combined, these two aren’t doing so badly.
14. A Brad also added in his interview with the BBC about being a parent, “I love it and can’t recommend it any more highly – although sleep is non-existent. It makes me much more efficient because when I work I really have to focus, I know I’ve less time to get things done. Actually I’m quite pleased by it.”
15. B The rumour has it that Brad would not want his child to be named Pollux because it is way too close to the British curse word bollocks. Good call Brad.
16. A The Jolie-Pitt clan Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, recently turned 2, all have really interesting names. Maddox is a Celtic name meaning beneficent, Pax is Latin for peace, Zahara means flower in Swahili and to shine in Hebrew, and lastly Shiloh means peaceful one.
