Pitt, in the video message, said: “Hi everyone. Brad here from quarantine with a shout out to the graduating class of Missouri State University. Yeah!! It must be very strange doing this in these trying times but know we’re rooting for you. Our money is on you to make this world a better place. And we wish you all the best in your future endeavors. So, you did it. You made it. Enjoy. Congrats again, and think big.”
The ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ actor grew up in Springfield, Missouri, where the university is located. He attended the university in the ’80s, although he did not graduate before moving to California to pursue acting. He was two credits shy of finishing his journalism degree.
