About Brad Pitt and Chicken Suit

Brad Pitt was raised in Springfield, Missouri by conservative Baptist parents. He dropped out of his college and headed west to make a name for himself and became a versatile Hollywood actor.

She asked before he started as an extra in acting, if he was one of the mascots outside El Pollo Loco – dressed as a chicken. Brad Pitt confirmed it is true. He said he was a Chicken mascot for the grand opening of El Pollo Loco at Sunset and La Brea in Los Angeles, California. When Ellen asked Brad how he felt wearing the yellow feathered chicken suit, Pitt replied “No shame.”

Brad Pitt explained dressed as the giant chicken mascot, he had to wave the sign of Grand Opening for El Pollo Loco in order to attract customers. He also joked saying he flipped off a lot in the suit. It is unclear if working as a chicken mascot was his first job. However, before being discovered as an actor, Brad Pitt took on a number of odd jobs to support himself. At one point of time, he worked as furniture mover and was also a driver for strippers in limo. Earlier in Oscar roundtable interview of 2007, Brad Pitt explained how it all led into his acting career.
