Brad Pitt's Net Worth in 2024: $400 million

Brad Pitt is probably best-known for being the #1 Hollywood heartthrob over the past two decades, as well as being one of the highest paid actors of all time. The talented actor is a busy man with a high-profile life and a high-profile appreciation for poker to match. He famously starred in Ocean’s 11 where his character was part of the group that stole mass amounts of money from vaults in three of Las Vegas’ casinos. No wonder he’s such a natural at the casino tables! Brad Pitt has an estimated net worth of around $400 million.

Happiness is overrated. There has to be conflict in life. You must lose everything in order to gain anything.

What Does Brad Pitt Do?

Pitt has come a long way from the first big movie he did, Thelma and Louise, making just $6,000. This super famous actor now makes about $30 million per movie. Brad Pitt has had over 84 acting roles and has been paid extremely well for the majority of them. He owns a production company called Plan B that he co founded with ex Jennifer Aniston and a few others, though he is now the sole owner. Plan B has produced big movies like Troy, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the Departed. 

Pitt also owns and runs successful wine making and champagne businesses. Alongside his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, he owns Château Miraval, developing the vineyards and working with French wine experts to create high quality wines. His rose champagne, Fleur de Miraval sells for $400 a bottle and was served at the Oscars in 2023.

Pitt is also a philanthropist, donating millions of dollars to all sorts of charities. He has been known to make frequent donations to organisations including Doctors Without Borders and Global Action for Children, to name just two.

How Did Brad Pitt Get Rich?

Brad Pitt made his money from movies. He is one of the highest paid people in Hollywood. For the movie Se7en, he earned $4 million. He received $10 million for Sleepers, and took home $20 million for Mr. & Mrs. Smith. For Ocean’s 11, he reduced his rate to $10 million and did the same pay for Inglorious Bastards, as well as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. He took a reduction in upfront pay for these movies because if they did well, he’d get a larger payout. That’s exactly what happened. With the success of these movies, he was paid more on top of the initial pay.

Brad Pitt’s real estate investments have also contributed significantly to his wealth. He sold his mansion in the Hollywood Hills recently. He purchased the property in 1994 for $1.7 million and sold it for $39 million. His work with brands like Breitling, as well as income from his vineyards and production company Plan B, all contribute to his fortune.

Brad Pitt doesn’t need to make money playing poker, that’s for sure. In fact, it’s more likely that this high roller loses more often than he wins. Reports have stated that the donates his winnings to charity, too.

There are other accounts of Brad Pitt and other big names in Hollywood playing poker all night. There’s even been accounts of him rubbing shoulders with Tamar Yaniv who led Pokerstars to being #1 in the European market at the time. 

He’s known to be very competitive but is a good sport about losing and has been able to play with most successful poker players of all time, like Joe Hachem. 

Poker is a hobby for Brad Pitt, so he doesn’t take wins or losses too seriously. Once, he gave his chauffeur and some others a $25,000 freeroll. If Pitt lost, he would give $25,000 to the winner. If he won, he would make his opponents do something outrageous that Pitt dared them to do.

What’s the Most He Ever Won?

However, he uses it as a means to connect with people and even to give to others. That way, gambling is always fun. 

Staying Generous Despite the Fame
