A particularly vehement admirer, 19-year-old Athena Rolando had entered Pitt’s mansion through an open window several years ago, dressed in his clothes and stayed for more than ten hours before the alarm system went off. Since then, a court order prohibits her from coming within 100 yards of him.

Pitt had designed the rings for his wedding ceremony with Jennifer Aniston himself and commissioned them from the noble Italian jeweler Damiani.

The goldsmith did not adhere to this, only a court case could stop the sale.
Several times Brad already had to have artificial tattoos brushed on in the mask. But he also has real tattoos. A Sanskrit prayer of protection that looks like two dark stripes, for example, adorns his lower back. That is to protect his adopted children. As a counterpart, Angelina Jolie had black columns engraved on her shoulder.
In his private life, Brad follows a strict fitness program, plays tennis passionately, climbs and rides a racing bike. But he knows all about his flaws: "I have a lot of scars. My knee is like a pizza. The scars are from my last accident, when I drove through the desert on Oscar night."

When dad Brad goes bowling with the kids, he’s not afraid of daring stunts: when he tried to save a ball that had broken down on the bowling alley, he slipped and landed on his back like a bug. For the children it was the most fun, and Brad fortunately did not hurt himself in the process.

This was also the case with the filming of "The Art of Winning – Moneyball": although there were numerous difficulties with the realization of the film, Pitt stuck to the project.

Biography of Brad Pitt
Sometimes Brad Pitt has a big mouth: "I’m one of those people you hate for their genes." Of course, a nice guy like him says such things only tongue-in-cheek. But let’s face it: in his mid-50s, he’s still so attractive that even heartthrob George Clooney grumbles, "I’m only two years older than Pitt. And I look much older!" He is still one of his best buddies.
And despite his reputation as a heartthrob, the many women who still fall for him have long been of little interest to him: Until the fall of 2016, after all, Hollywood beauty Angelina Jolie lived by his side. After the separation he avoids publicly declaring a new life partner.
From beau to character actor
In his younger years, Brad was a calendar model and studied journalism with quite serious intentions before he played the irresistible hitchhiker Geena Davis in "Thelma + Louise" first seduced and then robbed. He was originally only the third choice for the role. He still plays the irresistible slyboots on the screen today. But he prefers serial killers, paranoid cops and aggressive whipping boys, with shaggy beards and greasy hair or battered dentures. Because if there’s one thing Brad Pitt is determined to do, it’s rebel against his image as a pretty boy.
That’s why romantic glories like "Legends of Passion" are so difficult to find today an absolute taboo for him. He prefers to show his edgier side, making films like Quentin Tarantino’s "Inglourious Basterds" or the war movie "Heart of Steel and now also has a hand behind the camera. He is a successful producer with his company Plan B: He co-produced "12 Years a Slave" was even awarded the Oscar for Best Picture in 2014. One of the five award winners: Brad Pitt.
As an actor, unfortunately, he can not yet call a golden boy his own, although he has already been nominated three times. However, if he continues to be so lucky in his choice of films, it will only be a matter of time before he also receives this honor.
Good looks are not everything
Brad never relied on his outrageous good looks in the past either. As a student, he got by with unusual side jobs, including distributing brochures in front of a fast-food restaurant in the guise of a giant chicken. Or drove a group of stripteasers by limousine to their performances. His looks undoubtedly helped him at the beginning of his career. With $325 in his pocket, Pittler, as he was known at the university, drove his car, "Runaway Sue" spontaneously to Los Angeles. And immediately landed in "Dallas". Though it took him a good ten years to make it big, fame came by the bucketload. So far, this has not gone to his head.
