Brad Pitt has apparently found a new love - housework.

The Hollywood heartthrob has been keeping himself busy by dusting and polishing the Surrey home he and fiancee Angelina Jolie are living in while they are shooting movies in the UK, despite having millions in the bank to pay for all the household help he needs.

A source told the Daily Mirror that while Brad has always been an attentive dad to the couple's six children, he is also "becoming more domesticated" these days.

"The couple have a lot of help around the home, but Brad's started getting quite into sorting out the washing and doing the ironing himself. He's been pottering around the house a bit while Ange is away, and it helps to keep him occupied," said the source.

"He likes nothing more than doing a bit of housework before getting the kids to help him prepare dinner, which they love. He's turned into a right Mr Muscle. He's also been going to the local supermarket, and runs errands to the local dry cleaners in Camberley."

Brad has been working on World War Z and is shooting Ridley Scott's new film, The Counsellor, while Angie is making Disney movie, Maleficent.

The actress has also been busy in her role as a special envoy for the UN refugee agency, visiting Syrian refugees in Turkey.
