Yeoman: Brad Pitt's mind boggles!

Owain Yeoman has revealed a secret about Brad Pitt: the A-lister is an ace at Boggle.

The Welsh star landed one of his first acting gigs starring alongside the Hollywood hunk on the 2004 epic action film Troy, and the pair enjoyed playing the word game during their free time.

"It was a bit of an unreal taste of the business, I went from a school play and I finished Rada (the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) early to suddenly being on this two-and-a-half mile set and playing Boggle with Brad Pitt, how random is that?" Owain said.

"He's really good at Boggle by the way, do not be fooled, that guy knows his Boggle! Do not play Brad Pitt at Boggle, he has a lot of time on his hands, I can only assume that."

Owain, who stars in hit TV crime show The Mentalist, also picked up some words of wisdom from veteran actor Peter O'Toole during filming.

The 33-year-old recalled: "He taught me so many things. I said to him, 'You're 75 years old, you look in amazing shape, what's your secret? Do you exercise?'

"And he said, 'The only exercise I've had is walking behind the coffins of my friends who took exercise' and I loved that, I thought that was great."

:: The Mentalist Season 3 is out now on Blu-ray and DVD, on Warner Home Video.
