Brad Pitt 'buys prince painting'

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt has splashed out on artworks of Amy Winehouse and Britain's Prince William.

The Hollywood star and his fiancée Angelina Jolie are currently living in the UK, where Angelina is shooting her new movie Maleficent.

Brad has apparently decided to embrace the British way of life, so is decorating their home in the London area of Richmond with paintings by UK artists such as Bambi.

"There is a lot of buzz about Bambi at the moment. As Brad's here with the family for up to two years, it makes sense to fill the house with art by British artists," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

"He already has a Banksy, which he bought for £1 million at a London auction, but shipped it to LA."

Brad's pictures of Amy and the prince with his wife the Duchess of Cambridge are by Bambi, who specialises in graffiti art. His style is similar to that of Banksy, who is known for spraying pictures of the walls of buildings around Britain.

Brad has also been using his downtime to focus on his hobbies and catch up with pals.

He recently picked up some motorcycle clothing in a local store so he can go out on his bike and also travelled to Birmingham to catch up with one of the bodyguards from his 2000 movie Snatch.

"Brad's a lovely guy, one of the most humble men you could meet," Mohammed Hussain said.

You have the ability to build a secure financial future.More
