Brad Pitt a Journalist?

Here’s another good reason to be a journalist. Brad Pitt might have been one had it not been for his snap decision to drop out of school two weeks before graduation. He attended the University of Missouri where he was studying, of all things, journalism. “It just came to the time of graduation and everyone — all my friends were committing to jobs — and I just realized I was not ready for that yet. ..I packed up my car. I didn’t graduate — I had two weeks left — and I moved out to L.A.,” Pitt said.

He recently told the story to NPR “Fresh Air” Host Terry Gross. Poynter pulls the specific passages out here.
