Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s relationship has experienced plenty of ups and downs over the years. First they became the hottest couple in Hollywood, and then they got married. After their tumultuous break-up, the two became nemeses, but soon after reconciled, and became great friends. However, according to rumours, the two might be back together once again. They are each single, after Aniston was divorced from Justin Theroux, and Pitt from Angelina Jolie.
William Bradley Pitt, more popularly known as Brad Pitt, is a producer and an actor who is extremely popular not only for his good looks, but also for his tremendous acting chops. His most popular role is as Tyler Durden in Fight Club, but his role in the remake of Ocean’s Eleven also looms large in his acting portfolio.
Pitt was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, but was raised in Springfield, Missouri. His father is William Alvin Pitt, a truck company manager, and his mother is Jane Etta, a school counselor. Pitt has two siblings, Douglas and Julie Neal Pitt. Brad Pitt was a pretty active boy, involved in school musicals, sports, debating, and even school government. At the University of Missouri, he majored in Journalism, but he also often participated in fraternity shows, and left school just 2 credits short of graduating. Pitt moved to California, and drove strippers in limos, worked as a mascot for “el Pollo Loco”, and moved refrigerators in order to support himself as an actor before he became famous.
Jennier Aniston, on the other hand, was born in Sherman Oaks, California. Her parents were both actors: Nancy Dow, who was of Italian, Irish, English, and Scottish descent, and John Aniston, who was Greek. Aniston spent a year in Greece when she was young, before moving to New York, where she became fascinated with the world of acting at the ripe age of 11. This all began when she joined the drama club of Rudolf Steiner. It was also at that school that she became passionate about art. Aniston graduated in Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and the Arts, and then joined Off-Broadway productions, appearing in “Dancing on Checker’s Grave” and “For Dear Life”. Aniston landed her first TV role on Molloy, and soon after, she appeared in “Ferris Bueller” and “The Edge”. She got her big break, however, playing Rachel Green in the mega-hit TV series “Friends”. Aniston had originally been invited to audition for the role of Monica; however, she really wanted the role of Rachel, the suburban princess who became a coffee peddler.
When most people break up, they usually want to let go of everything that they owned together with their former partner. However, in Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s case, letting go of their Beverly Hills mansion might have actually been a mistake. The once-most-famous couple used to own the property from 2001 to 2006, which is now for sale for $44.5 million.
Pitt and Aniston’s 11,173 sq. ft. property is nestled in a cul-de-sac, which is more than an acre in size. The property has 13 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms, and features large, formal rooms, and even a dining room which has 20-seating capacity. The property also showcases an eat-in gourmet kitchen, a bar with its original fireplace, and a gym! Its bar is connected to the swimming pool, and the grounds are all filled with gorgeous, mature greenery.
Aniston and Pitt’s property has a French Normandy Revival-style, and is considered to be one of the most romantic houses in all of Southern California. Here, the owner can enjoy the lighted pool, dreamy hedged landscaping, and awe-inspiring canyon views. They can also bask in the stoned patios and courtyard.
The property boasts fireplaces almost everywhere - in the dining room, bar, and even in the bedroom. It also has an outdoor bedroom, which sits on top of a tennis court and an outdoor living room.
When the property was sold in 2006, the hedge fund executive would go on to add even more features to the property.
