She later moved to Pennsylvania, where Brad spent his early teenage years. In 1977 he graduated from Madison East High School, and in 1981 the young man, who is interested in art, obtained a degree in English and Theater from Wesleyan University, where he shared a room with Hollywood producer Paul Schiff.
Brad also attended Juilliard Drama School and was a member of “Group 14”. He appeared in the off-Broadway production Curse of the Starving Class with Kathy Bates. Brad also appeared in the Broadway production of A Few Good Men. The experienced actor then appeared in many other stage productions before he ventured into screen productions.

He was also featured in Scent of a Woman, A Perfect World, The Client, My Life, Red Corner, Presumed Innocent, and My fellow Americans. In 2017, he played the role of a suspected suburban father in the horror-thriller Get Out.
Meanwhile, Brad was quite involved in American politics as a political analyst. He constantly expresses his views on political issues both locally and nationally. The political liberal has appeared on television and radio political broadcasts. In September 2016 he was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and openly declared his support for Hillary Clinton.

Wife, Kids, Gay, Divorce
Bradley Whitford was married to the actress Jane Kaczmarek for 16 years. They got married in August 1992 but divorced in 2010. They have 3 children – Frances Genevieve, George Edward, and Mary Louisa.
Jane Kaczmarek was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She was the daughter of Edward Kaczmarek and Evelyn, a teacher. Her father was an employee of the US Department of Defense. Her family is of Polish descent. Like her ex-husband, Jane attended an acting school and studied drama at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Both acted in The West Wing, Philadelphia, Robocop, and Malcolm in the television series Middle TV.
It is not clear what the reason for their separation was, but the couple, who had a common professional background, decided that it was best to go their separate ways. However, they intend to work together in raising their children. In an interview with Brad, he said that he would love to spend a Saturday with his children in sports fields. On other occasions, they would go on vacation.
Brad believes that it is good news for the children to see how parents support each other when they give parental advice to their fellow divorcees. He says this shows them a kind of resilience and makes the picture somewhat balanced in the middle of a difficult time. The divorce of Brad and Jane is said to be one of the most amicable separations the Hollywood world has ever seen. Although it made headlines, there was no unnecessary or loud violent drama during the separation processes. What happened instead, to the astonishment of all who wanted to follow her story, was not only that both had joint custody of their children. Rather, they also went, without doing it one-sidedly, the laudable mile of dividing the costs of raising their three children equally.
In 2012, Bradley Whitford played the role of a politically active gay on Shameless. Apart from that, Brad did not show any attitude or action that would suggest that he was/is in reality gay. He is heterosexual; enough to have been married once, and in 2015 he started dating Amy Landecker, his co-star in the series Transparent.
