- Brad Pitt
A superstar for his good looks, but respected for his acting chops, Brad Pitt has never had trouble separating his art from life in the tabloids. After paying his dues in small roles (including two appearances on Growing Pains), he was singled out for stardom in 1991 for stealing Thelma & Louise and starring in the indie Johnny Suede. Pitt's rise was meteoric, and proved he could method act in great movies (Se7en, Fight Club, Babel) as well as be a bigger–than–life star (Ocean's Eleven). For proof of how good he is, look to his spectacular bombs, and how he retains his dignity even in Cool World. No wonder the paparazzi never tire of him... We'd watch Brad Pitt in just about anything.
