Brad Pitt has hired Jamie Oliver to cook his Christmas dinner.
The ‘Killing Them Softly’ actor has been friends with the British chef for years and although Jamie has tried to teach Brad how to cook, the Hollywood hunk has given up and asked his pal to come to his rented London home on Christmas Day to make dinner for him, fiancee Angelina Jolie and their six children.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Jamie has been pals with Brad since he was married to Jennifer Aniston and Ange likes him too.
"Jamie will be heading to their Surrey mansion to help prepare Christmas dinner.
“Brad asked him to do it after he begged Jamie for cookery lessons last year. Jamie tried to teach him but he’s useless in the kitchen.”
While Brad’s cooking skills leave a lot to be desired, it was recently revealed he is obsessed with cleaning.
A source said: "Brad has always been an attentive father, but recently he's becoming more domesticated, too.
"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.
"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."
