Douglas Pitt: The Brother of Brad Pitt Who Shares More Than Just Genes

According to reports, the 56-year-old brother of Brad Pitt is successful in his own right. Unlike his older brother, he never had any intention of entering the world of showbiz.

These two brothers do bear a striking resemblance, I must say, but that’s apparently where the similarities end. Early in their lives, it became evident that Brad and Douglas were destined for different paths. Brad, as we all know, quickly made significant strides in the entertainment industry, ensuring that his name shone brightly and his stardom rapidly soared.

His natural charisma, stunning looks, and evident talent in front of the camera propelled him to the dizzying heights of Hollywood in a short span. He has remained there ever since, steadily becoming an icon of the film industry.

On the other hand, Douglas chose a somewhat more subtle path through life. According to reports, he started his first IT business at the age of 24 and continued to develop within the field of information technology and computer science. Today, the self-proclaimed “second most famous Pitt” is known as an entrepreneur and philanthropist.

For many years now, Douglas has been involved in a significant amount of charity work. He has reportedly worked as a Goodwill Ambassador in Tanzania, and he has also funded schools, universities, and hospitals in his home state of Missouri.

Regarding his widely famous older brother, Douglas himself has said that he usually goes into autopilot when asked about Brad. “I appreciate the interest, I understand why people want to ask about him, but, you know, I’ve answered the same question for 25 years,” he said.

In any case, it appears that success is something that runs in the Pitt family. What do you think? Do Brad and Douglas look alike? Share your thoughts in the comments.
