Brad Pitt is one of the most famous actors in Hollywood, but everyone has to start somewhere. Born in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri, Pitt went through high school and most of college before realizing what he wanted to do.
Two weeks before completing his journalism degree in college, he wasn't ready to settle down. He decided to pack up and chase his dreams, even though his experience was limited to plays in school.
He moved to Los Angeles and started taking acting lessons and working at different jobs. As his career was starting out, he took small roles in television to build up his resume and then eventually landed his breakout role in Thelma and Louise.
But before he became the mega star we all know now, he had to get some pictures taken. You've got to get your face out there, even if it's in slightly embarrassing pictures.
Pitt first met photographer Sandra Downie-Dunn at a wrap party for Dallas. It was four years before he would land his role in Themla and Louise, and apparently he looked like he was having a hard time.
“He said he was hungry and didn’t have any money — not even 33 cents for a hamburger at McDonald’s," Downie-Dunn revealed.
The photographer took some pictures of the struggling actor to help him out, and now, over 30 years later, those photos have resurfaced and we've got to say, it's crazy to see him looking so young!
At only 23, Pitt is fresh-faced, bright-eyed, and completely unaware of what his life was going to become.
