ABOUT THE BOOK

Brad Pitt is one of the most famous actors of his generation, thanks to a magical combination of commercial success, critical respect, universally acknowledged good looks, and endless tabloid coverage of his romantic relationships with fellow A-listers. Pitt is an Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner who has also become increasingly involved with humanitarian causes.

Pitt started his career in television, appearing in Another World, and in four episodes of the hit show Dallas in 1987-88. In the later, he played the character Randy, whom Pitt described as a typical high schooler (Teen Beat, Teen Beat Makes a Pitt Stop to Meet Dallas Star Brad Pitt).

By the end of the 1980s, hed added numerous other TV credits, including 21 Jump Street, Growing Pains, Head of the Class, and thirtysomething. Pitt played a lead role in the 1990 TV movie Too Young to Die, starring alongside Juliette Lewis, paving the way for an off-camera romance. For half of our relationship, we were just unknown young actors in L.A., Lewis said recently. I even remember his little bungalow that we lived in off Melrose that wed smoke lots of pot in (BlackBook, Juliette Lewis is a Natural Born Rebel).

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Pitt is also 0-for-4 at the BAFTA Awards, again receiving three nominations as an actor and one as a producer (for The Departed). Hes a five-time nominee at the Golden Globes; his lone win, in 1995, was for his supporting work in 12 Monkeys.

One award Pitt wouldnt have minded skipping: the Razzies (or Golden Raspberry Awards) in 1995, where he and Tom Cruise were honored as the Worst Screen Couple for Interview with the Vampire, sharing the award with Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone.

Similarly, one of the awards that brought him the most notoriety is one over which Pitt has expressed ambivalence or conflicted feelings: Peoples Sexiest Man Alive, a title hes won twice. I think that was a cruel, cruel thing to do to me, he said following the first award. ...Its some cruel and heinous joke. A friend of mine said they misspelled it-it was supposed to be sexiest moron (Los Angeles Times, Dont Call Him Sexy)...
