Brad Pitt has revealed the real reason behind his growing beard - boredom.

The Tinseltown star was a surprise guest at the London premiere of Kick-Ass, which he helped produce, and attended the after-party with the film's star Aaron Johnson, director Matthew Vaughn and Gary Barlow, Dizzee Rascal and Tom Ford.

"It's boredom - no other reason than that," he told The Sun about his facial hair.

Brad, who next stars in The Tree Of Life with Sean Penn, said Scotland holds a special place in his heart, because he spent time there when he was younger.

"I went to Scotland and travelled around years ago - I went everywhere, saw it all," he went on.

"Edinburgh and Glasgow were special - the architecture is something there. Charles Rennie Mackintosh, he was the man. I even went up to Loch Ness to see what that was all about."

He added: "Last year Matthew and I were looking at doing some filming up there. We had a look at some castles. We'll definitely be back."
