Four years later, Pitt starred in the cult hit Fight Club. He then starred in the major international hit Ocean’s Eleven (2001) and its sequels, Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and Ocean’s Thirteen (2007). His greatest commercial successes have been Troy (2004), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), and World War Z (2013). Pitt received his second and third Academy Award nominations for his leading performances in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) and Moneyball (2011). Pitt owns a production company, Plan B Entertainment, whose productions include The Departed (2006) and 12 Years a Slave (2013), both of which won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and Moneyball, which garnered a Best Picture nomination.
Following a high-profile relationship with actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston for five years.

Ferdia McAnna (writer): Brad Pitt is in essence, eye candy for girls.
Paul Tylak (actor): Brad Pitt is bad.
Daniel Wymbs (film fan): A River runs through is old hat. Spy Game is so much more clever if you judge from book to script…
Michael Purcell (actor): I have a whole new respect for Brad Pitt after seeing the film, The Tree of Life. He has been very smart in his career choices. He reminds me of Robert Redford, another smart businessman.
Alvean Jones (tv presenter): Brad Pitt? A lot of women fell for him 15 years ago.
Dominic Mafham (actor): Beautiful, bold, warm, surprisingly human given he’s almost Godlike.
Elfrieda Carroll: Undecided about him scruffy or hunky can’t make up his mind.
Film fan: Brad Pitt – can occasionally surprise with an excellent performance. Status as pin-up sometimes undermines his ability. Also is under-appreciated as a comic actor.
Maggie Dunlop: Like Brad Pitt as a person (share many of his views) but just an OK actor. Mind you, he’s been in some great movies. ‘Seven’ and ‘Thelma & Louise’ just to name two.
