Left-handed people or southpaws make up about 11 percent of the world’s population and include some of the world’s most talented celebrities, especially in the political, sports, and entertainment scenes. Is Brad Pitt one of such stars?
Yes. Brad Pitt is left-handed. This is going by his constant inclusion on internet lists of left-handed celebrities. He shares this feature with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie. Still, the actor’s been signing autographs for fans with his right hand so we can assume that he’s ambidextrous. Keep reading to find out possible benefits the actor enjoys from being a southpaw.
Benefits of Being Left-handed
As stated earlier, Brad Pitt is a constant feature of lists of public figures and celebrities who are southpaws. Lists by Elle, Life and Style magazine, and Metro Entertainment are just a few examples of this fact. Having confirmed the dreamy actor’s status as a southpaw, what benefits might he enjoy from being left-handed?
Brad Can Celebrate International Left-Handers Day
For one, Brad Pitt is allowed to fully celebrate the International Left-Handers Day, which is slated for August 13th of every year. The day provides lefties the world over with a chance to brag about their being left-handed and also serves as a platform for raising awareness about the everyday challenges lefties face. Considering how much of a humanitarian Brad Pitt is, he just might consider becoming an actual ambassador for lefties all over the world.
Pursuing A Creative Career
Again, Brad Pitt might owe his pursuing a career in acting and being quite good at it (if we might add) to his being a southpaw. This is because left-handed people tend to use the right side of their brains more, and that side of the brain controls tasks relating to art, imagination, and creativity. In addition, Brad Pitt is proof of a particular study that found that southpaws are more likely to pursue creative careers.
Good at Multitasking
Brad Pitt figuratively wears many hats, and he sometimes wears them simultaneously. From being an actor to a producer and then a father and even a humanitarian, Brad is involved in many ventures. What is impressive is how well he blends all these parts and how he gives them his best effort. This unique ability might just be linked to his left-handedness as a study has found that southpaws are better at multitasking.
Left-handed people are more likely to learn how to use their right hands and become ambidextrous. This is because the world is significantly more right-handed, and so lefties tend to adjust. Brad Pitt proves this by his being able to use his right hand, especially when signing autographs for his adoring fans. We are sure his being left-handed will be a plus when playing sports, fighting or performing any activity that requires him to use his left hand
Downsides to Being Left-handed
Left-handed people have been known to suffer certain disadvantages as a result of their uniqueness. What are these disadvantages, and has Brad Pitt ever experienced them?
First, left-handed people have been found to earn less than their right-handed counterparts. Whether this applies to Brad is something we are unsure of, but what we are sure of is that Brad Pitt is loaded, regardless. The actor has certainly moved on from earning about 6000 dollars in his breakout role on Thelma & Louise to having a networth of about 300 million dollars.
Second, left-handed people are the subject of sinistrophobia, which is the fear of things on the left side or of left-handed people. Considering the global popularity of Brad Pitt, it would be doubtful that there are people who fear him just because he is left-handed.
It is evident that Brad Pitt has excelled in his career and has not used his being left-handed as some kind of excuse to not do well. We remain his loyal fans.
