Brad Pitt & Leonardo DiCaprio – Before They Were Famous
It’s always fun to see what our favorite leading Hollywood men looked like before they were famous. It’s even more fun to see their baby pictures!
Leonardo DiCaprio is 34 years old, was born in Hollywood, CA and grew up in Echo Park. In the year following Leo’s birth, his mother and father were divorced. How did he get started in the acting business? At age five he appeared in his favorite show Romper Room and Friends, but was nearly thrown off the show for misbehaving.
I remember Leo best for his role as the homeless boy Luke in Growing Pains. Yep, I had a major crush on him back then! That is the role that shot Leonardo into the teen heartthrob category. He didn’t really enjoy that time and is glad to have stepped away. He was quoted as saying, “People want you to be a crazy, out-of-control teen brat. They want you miserable, just like them. They don't want heroes; what they want is to see you fall.”
Leonardo’s career is going great and I think he is one actor that will continually make phenomenal movies.
Brad Pitt’s baby picture below.
Brad Pitt is 45 years old, was born in Shawnee, OK and raised in Springfield, Missouri. Brad attended the University of Missouri, where he majored in journalism and was focused on advertising. With just two credits shy of graduating, Brad moved to California.
His move to CA wasn’t instant fame for the actor. Before he became famous he did everything from driving strippers in limos to dressing as a giant chicken while working for "el Pollo Loco." You have to start somewhere right?
We all know that Brad Pitt makes successful movies and has a beautiful wife, Angelina Jolie, and a constantly growing family.
You can see him in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” in theaters now.
Cute, cute babies aren’t they?
