Ladies and gentlemen—we've got a special birthday to celebrate this weekend as Mr. Brad Pitt is turning the big 6-0 on December 18. Whether you are major Pitt fan or not, you have to really respect Brad's trajectory as a respected actor in Hollywood. Similar to his peer Leonardo DiCaprio, early critics tried putting Pitt in the box of "very attractive actors who only booked big time roles because of their good looks." The problem with this mindset at those specific points in time was that it overlooked the genuine talent of actors that were put into that box, and created the narrative that they were only getting major parts because they were "pretty." It also didn't help that Pitt didn't possess the training of his contemporaries as he didn't attend a major acting school and did not have a background in theater. Decades later, it's safe to say William Bradley Pitt has more than proven himself in the industry. In celebration of his birthday, we're taking a look at the best Brad Pitt movies and ranking them.
Best of all, Pitt gets to join the likes of fellow actors like Keanu Reeves (who will turn 60 in 2024), Denzel Washington, and Tom Cruise who are still kicking ass and putting butts in seats as main box office draws into their sixties. Let's take a look through some of the best in his filmography shall we?
