Long before he had Angelina Jolie and six kids, Brad Pitt was a young, carefree party boy. A 1990 photo of the “Moneyball” star has surfaced in which the then-27-year-old aspiring actor is hanging out at the Calabasas, California, apartment of none other than Jason Priestley. With a beer in hand – and Doritos on the coffee table – Pitt and the “Beverly Hills, 90210” star are seen catching the Super Bowl game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos. “It was not a plush apartment and it was a modest affair,” a friend tells Celebuzz, “but we had an awesome time watching the game. I think that's the irony here: within a couple years, both of them would have to run from crowds and this was their Super Bowl party, without the Hollywood hoopla.”
The January 28, 1990 photo was snapped literally less than a year before the two unknowns went on to find superstardom. For Pitt, now 48, he had already made small waves with minor, one-off roles on “21 Jump Street” and “Growing Pains.” But it was his breakout part in 1991’s “Thelma and Louise” as a hitchhiker who has a romp with Geena Davis’s character that really put him on the map – and the four-time Oscar nominee has stayed there ever since. As for Priestley, now 42, just nine months later he achieved heartthrob status when “90210” premiered that fall and became an overnight phenomenon.
Although the two struggling actors were pals 22 years ago, it seems they have since gone their separate ways, both in their careers – Priestley has stuck to TV, while Pitt only does film – and in their personal lives.
