Remember way back in 1991 when Brad Pitt and his rock hard abs broke into the film industry with a bit part in Thelma & Louise?
Of course you do, it was a watershed moment in cinematic history!!!
What you probably didn't know about his tiny
package part, however, is that the then Z-list actor was only paid $6,000 for his troubles!!
Six grand?! Whaaaaaaat?!
But, hey, it wound up working out for the best!
The very next year Brad snagged a leading role in A River Runs Through It and, from there, he quickly weaseled his way into America's collective heart like a dashingly handsome parasitic roundworm!! Now he's one of the richest dudes in the biz!!!
Plus, he got to make sweet, sweet love to Geena Davis in the movie!
