Brad Pitt as you’ve NEVER seen him before in 1987 photoshoot

He is a Hollywood heavyweight, known for his pin-up looks, who has been at the top of the film industry for more than two decades.

But Brad Pitt looked worlds away from the polished film star as he posed for a series of promotional shots in 1987, when he was a struggling 23-year-old actor hoping for his big break in Hollywood.

The fresh-faced heartthrob saucily pulled his t-shirt up to reveal his abs in one black and white snap , while rocking some bleached jeans and a studded belt.

The three-time Oscar nominee’s dark blonde locks were styled quiffed and parted to the side, and he cracked a whimsical smile as he worked the camera.   

A second vintage photo showed the Seven actor channeling his inner James Dean as he posed up in a sports car, rocking some futuristic shades and holding a retro cellphone. 

The star also took to the beach sporting a green vest top and flowing white trousers, along with a George Michael inspired cross earring for a sunny snap, with a blonde companion.

The photographer Sandra Downie-Dunn would prove integral in paving the way for Brad’s future film career as she says she introduced him to agent Phil Lobel.

Less than four years later, he landed the part in 1991’s Thelma & Louise that would propel him to stardom. 

Downie-Dunn met the hunk at a wrap party for TV soap Dallas, in which he had a small role.

‘When I met him… I had to give him money and clothes,’ she said. ‘I told him we have to take photos of you to get your career going or go back to Missouri and hang out with your parents. He never thanked me in all those years.’
