Brad Pitt

A critic once wrote that Brad Pitt combined “the matinee idol looks of Gary Cooper with the sex symbol loveliness of Marilyn Monroe”. It’s a line that sums up Pitt’s pin-up appeal, but would certainly annoy the pants off Pitt himself. After all, he’s spent years trying to explode a reputation as a Himbo, taking on a series of lead roles and cameos that should really have proven to the world that he is in fact a very fine actor indeed.
