Personal Life

Pinchot was born in New York City and bears the name of a 19th-century social reformer. His mother, Rosina (née Asta) was an Italian American and a typist, and his father, Henry (originally Poncharavsky) was of Russian descent and a bookbinder, who was born in New York and raised in Paris. His younger brother Justin is also an actor. Pinchot was raised in Southern California where he graduated from South Pasadena High School at the top of his class and was appointed valedictorian. He earned a full scholarship to Yale University where he studied fine art in Morse College, graduating magna cum laude. After he was cast in a college play a casting director discovered him, which led to his film debut, Risky Business.In the 1970s, Pinchot often organized Winkie (west) conventions of The International Wizard of Oz Club.In 1999 Pinchot spent a great deal of time in Harford, Pennsylvania, restoring the circa 1839 mansion built by Joab Tyler, father of the historian William Seymour Tyler. The house had later been inhabited by former Pennsylvania state Senator Edward E. Jones. Pinchot purchased six properties in the small rural town of 1,300 residents "in an effort to revive the town's 19th-century aesthetic." In 2015 he filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, claiming liabilities between $100,000 and $500,000. All of his properties in Harford were subsequently put up for sale. Bronson told The Citizen's Voice, "I have two skills: I can make old houses beautiful and I can make people laugh. Other than that I'm a waste of space. Well, I'm a dedicated son and brother but I have no head for businesses."
