The '80s weren't easy on anyone, including Brad Pitt.
While he may be a Hollywood heartthrob now — and half of one of the most talked about celebrity couples of all time — a few decades back, he was a tank top loving, denim-on-denim wearing, feathered-hair sporting aspiring movie star. These photos, snapped in 1987 during his brief tenure on Dallas, reflect all of those toooh-tally bitchin’ things.
Pitt, 50, moved from Missouri to L.A. the year before after dropping out of college just two weeks shy of his graduation. He had only $325 to his name, stars in his eyes, and started landing roles almost immediately — bit parts in films, a couple episodes on the soap Another World, and then — yeehaw! — a four-episode arc on primetime fave Dallas.
These shots are from a photo shoot he did with his Dallas co-star, Shalane McCall. He was 23 to her 15 and there were rumors that they, gasp, dated in real-life too. Whether they did or not remains an '80s secret, but they did have a love scene.
