Since his appearance in "Thelma and Louise" (1991) Brad Pitt has been established as one of contemporary Hollywood's biggest young stars. This biography combines interviews and profiles with reviews of all Pitt's films, photographs and movie stills.
Brad Pitt debuted in the 1991 hit Thelma and Louise, and Winona Ryder made her name in 1989's cult sensation Heathers. Bigger roles and top billing were quick to follow for both. Today, the two are sex symbols and generational icons whose names are synonymous with box office success. These striking oversized books explore and document their lives and phenomenal careers.Each of their successive films -- including recent challenging roles such as Pitt's in The Devil's Own and Ryder's in The Crucible -- have further cemented their standing as serious actors. Both are media darlings and appear frequently on magazine covers; their film careers as well as their relationships (Pitt with Gwyneth Paltrow, Ryder with Johnny Depp and Soul Asylum's Dave Pirner) are eagerly followed by millions of fans anxious for details.Produced to the same lavish specifications as Little, Brown's previous bestsellers Cobain and Garcia, Brad Pitt and Winona Ryder are gorgeously illustrated with images by top Us and Rolling Stone photographers, movie stills, and rare studio outtakes. The substantial texts include profiles, interviews, and movie reviews drawn from Us and Rolling Stone, newly commissioned biographical overviews, and complete filmographies. With major motion pictures starring both actors set for release in the fall -- Seven Years in Tibet for Pitt, Alien: Resurrection for Ryder -- these beautiful, affordably priced hardcovers are certain to be two of 1997's premier holiday gift books.
