Fight Club: Usually remembered as Pitt’s most notable work, this film explores some of the mind’s darker features.

“That Don’t Impress Me Much” by Shania Twain: Pitt’s celebrity status sealed itself quickly considering his name in a popular 90s pop song.

Ocean’s Eleven: Pitt joined George Clooney and several other notable castmates to rob a Vegas casino in an elegant, high-stake heist.

Megamind: This animated comedy took a different spin on the superhero story and featured the villain attempting to take the town’s admired hero’s place.
