The answer is 2. Brad Pitt was only 2 credits short from graduating college in 1987. Born William Bradley Pitt on December 18, 1963 in Shawnee, Oklahoma, he eventually decided to leave his school, the University of Missouri, with only 2 credits left to graduate and a measly $325 in his pocket so he could pursue his love for acting and films. The reason for his decision to move to California was because there were no movies being made in Oklahoma during that year.
The first few years proved to be difficult for him due to many failed auditions and starring in films wherein he was either not credited or just played small roles. It was during 1994 wherein he achieved critical success as an actor when he played Louis de Pointe du Lac in the film Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles.
