Today is Brad Pitt’s 54th birthday, and after a rough start to the year (he was riding solo following Angelina Jolie’s decision to file for divorce and their custody dispute), he came back better than ever, ready to make peace with his past and look forward to his future. Who doesn’t love a comeback story?
Pitt has always been one of our faves. He is charming, good-looking, and he also happens to invest in Black storytellers through his production company, Plan B Entertainment (12 Years a Slave, Moonlight, Selma, Berry Jenkins’s upcoming film, If Beale Street Could Talk). The sistahs, in general, also love him, and well, he seems to have an admiration for us, too. From dating the likes of Thandie Netwon and Robin Givens to working with Ava DuVernay and Taraji P. Henson and just loving Queen Latifah like the rest of us, Pitt is invited to some cookouts, y’all. Check out a few images of him kicking it with some of your favorite Black women over the years in honor of his 54th year.
