In an interview published in the Sunday Express, Pitt said the life-altering
experience happened in Budapest in May 1989. His fiancee of three months,
actress Jill Schoelen, told him she had fallen in love with another man.
Jill Schoelen started her acting career at the tender age of
14 when she landed her first role starring opposite Nicholas Cage in the made
for TV movie "Best of Times." In her second TV movie, "Happy Endings," Jill was
nominated for the Youth in Film Awards 1983-1984 for BEST YOUNG ACTRESS IN A
FAMILY FILM MADE FOR TELEVISION. She studied at the prestigeous Gena Bua's
Acting for Life Theatre located in Burbank, CA. Jill had made a career working
both on the big and small screens landing mostly lead roles in films of the
thriller/horror genre. Her most notable roles have been in "The Stepfather" as
the charming yet suspious daughter of Terry O'Quinn, the young and
impressionable Diva in "The Phantom of the Opera" opposite Robert Englund, and
as a college student stalked by a psychopath in the thriller "When a Stranger
Calls Back." For her role in "The Stepfather," Jill was again nominated for the
Youth in Film Awards 1986-1987, this time for BEST YOUNG ACTRESS IN A HORROR
MOTION PICTURE; and she took home the statue for BEST ACTRESS at the 1987
Catalonian International Film Festival in Sitges, Spain. Jill has also graced us
with her talents as a singer, belting out rock songs in the feature film "Rich
Girl," playing guitar and singing a melodic tune in "Curse II: The Bite,"
singing cavity inducing, upbeat tunes in "Babes in Toyland," and headlining Los
Angeles' longest running musical, "Pepper Street"
In the romance department, Jill has been linked with two of her co-stars Keanu
Reeves, and what turned out to be a heartbreaking engagement with Brad Pitt. As
the story goes, Jill and Brad met on the set of the horror film "Cutting Class"
in 1987. They dated for 9 months. While shooting on location in Budapest,
Hungary for Jill's then latest film "Phantom of the Opera," Brad visited Jill,
where she sadly broke off the engagement.
Renowned Fashion Designer Dorothy Schoelen also happens to be Jill's mother.
With the support of Jill's brothers Todd and Mark, Dorothy is keeping her
designs all in the family. They help mom out with the distribution and
production of her latest fashions.
Jill is also a runner and has participated in a number of 10k races throughout
the Los Angeles area.
After completing what has proved to have been her final film "Not Again" in
1995, Jill has since retired from the spotlight and refocused her priorities on
raising her 2 children with husband and composer Anthony Marinelli in Encino,
