布拉德·皮特1963年12月18日出生于美国俄克拉荷马州，在密苏里州长大。并且从小在唱诗班唱歌。高中毕业，进入密苏里大学主修广告美术设计。在只差两星期就毕业时，他收拾起所有的东西，装上他的破车，奔向好莱坞寻找成为影星的梦想。他骗父母说他去参加帕萨德纳的艺术中心设计学院，他不敢告诉他们他其实是去好莱坞做侍应生，加开长轿车，甚至去扮演卡通人物，以等待成名的机会。 幸运的是，布拉德·皮特做司机和打杂的工作没多久。他参加几个演艺班，不久就找到了一个小角色，在电视剧里演一个性感得使人心跳加速的男朋友角色。接下去是在一部不怎么样的电影《Cutting Class》，这部片子对他的成为大影星没有起什么作用，但他结识女朋友吉尔舒兰。1991年布拉德·皮特在《末路狂花》中演了一个性感、热血方刚的角色，并且第一次充分展示了他的腹肌，终于引起好莱坞和观众的注意。 主演《秋日传奇》后，布拉德·皮特被《人物》杂志评为“世界上有史以来最性感的男人”。尽管他一直强调本身表演上的能力，但他的英俊形象被证实是他最值钱的素质。 布拉德·皮特倒不是完全只重视他漂亮的外表，清澈的蓝眼睛，坚硬的腹肌，和迷人的微笑，他一直强调他对他演技发展的重视。
