Brad Pitt, worth $300M, matches ex-wife Jennifer Aniston's $1M donation to anti-racism charity
Earlier in the week, Pitt joined the protesters in Hollywood on his superbike and was seen wearing a George Floyd emblazoned hoodie
Brad Pitt ranks at No. 18 on the list of the world's 25 richest actors and actresses. The Academy Award-winning star has taken a cue from her ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, and donated generously to an anti-racism organization.
The Mirror reported that the 56-year old star of 'Once Upon A Time in Hollywood' has pledged to match Aniston's donation of $1M to 'Color of Change'. A source told the outlet, “Brad is really involved with the charity because of Jen and said he would match her donation". The source further explained his solidarity of racial injustice just like Aniston. "He went to the protests this week and was at her home the day after. They are both very passionate and want to help as much as they can.” Earlier in the week, Pitt joined the protesters in Hollywood on his superbike and was seen wearing a George Floyd emblazoned hoodie.
This is not a one-off event of the actor making donations towards charity and in the past has been involved with charities working towards humanitarian, global development, and health causes. He's also one of the founders of 'Not On Our Watch' along with George Clooney, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle and Jerry Weintraub. The organization focuses on bringing global attention and resources to stop and prevent genocide such as that in Darfur.
Pitt's net worth is a whopping $300M according to Celebrity Net Worth. Pitt enjoys global recognization in terms of popularity and is also one of the highest-paid entertainers in the world. He earns a consistent $20M for his major releases. His breakout role in 'Thelma & Louise' from 1991 earned him $6,000 and in just two years after the film released, he graduated to earning $500,000 for his role in 'Kalifornia'. Two years after 'Kalifornia', came a paycheck for $4M for the movie 'Se7en'. A year later he had $10M in the bank for the movie, 'Sleepers'. Another $10M came for his role in 'Seven Years in Tibet'. Pitt also turned a producer later and earned undisclosed millions, probably more than what he earned as an actor,
He also owns property that is valued at an estimated $100M, a third of his net worth. It consists of a compound in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighborhood, a Santa Barbara beach house, a New Orleans mansion, a villa in Majorca, and Chateau Miraval and a 1,200-acre winery in the south of France, which he co-owns with his former wife, Angelina Jolie.
