Terry Gross: You studied journalism in college. What did you expect to become?
Brad Pitt: I wasn’t really sure. I was just investigating for myself — they have one of the best J-schools in the country.
Gross: This is, where?
Pitt: University of Missouri… 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.
Gross: Why didn’t you finish those two weeks? I mean, two weeks is a blink of an eye.
Pitt: …I just felt I was done. I was done with it. I knew where I wanted to go. I had a direction. I always liked those moments of epiphany when you have the next destination.
