It's hard to imagine a world where Brad Pitt isn't Brad Pitt. But, in 1989, the world's biggest movie star was just another fresh-faced, aspiring actor looking for a break.
The proof is in the pudding.
And, in this case, the pudding comes in the form of a recently unearthed still from The Kids Are All Right, a forgotten ABC pilot in which Pitt played a teenager coming of age. But, this isn't just a regular old still, you see. This is a shot of Brad Pitt wearing nothing but a pair of boxers.
How this show didn't get picked up for, like, a thousand seasons is one of life's great unsolved mysteries.
Despite the setback, it wasn't long before the future Mr. Jolie finally got his big break in Thelma & Louise, which just so happened to be another ab-centric role. Since then, Pitt has built one of the more impressive filmographies of our generation, because despite those abs, dude can actually act, too.
