Today, Brad Pitt is an Oscar-winning actor with fabulous hair and lots of sex appeal. But once upon a time (literally in Hollywood), the 56-year-old actor says he was so down on his luck that he lived in a two-bedroom apartment with seven other guys. Yikes.
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star reflected on his first years in L.A. during an interview with The Los Angeles Times, and, boy, it was different than his current situation.
“When I first moved out here, it was the summer of ’86 and I didn’t know sh**-all about Los Angeles, other than what I’d seen on The Beverly Hillbillies and Dragnet,” Pitt recalled.
Upon arriving in the city, Pitt said, “I landed in Burbank at a house I could crash at for a month or so…Man, I was just so up for the adventure, and so excited when I’d drive by a studio where they make movies. It meant the world to me.”
