'Farmer' Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt loves being a "farmer".

The 'Moneyball' actor and his fiancee Angelina Jolie - with who he raises children Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Knox and Vivienne, five - bought French winery Miraval in 2012 and the 50-year-old hunk loves learning more about the vineyard and the winemaking process as he finds it so relaxing.

He said: "I'm a farmer now. I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October...I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land. [It is] the antithesis of the drive, the want, the need to get ahead indicative of life in Hollywood."

Brad and Angelina paid $60 million for the winery and, after deciding to tackle their new business venture "like a film", have seen production grow from 5,800 cases in 2011 to 16,000 now.

Speaking to Wine Spectator magazine, Brad said: "The business model didn't make sense to me...Let's approach it like a film...let's make something we can be proud of and all people can enjoy."
