Q: How much money does Brad Pitt carry in his wallet?


A: $1,100 (or £700)

We know this thanks to People magazine, who report that Brad Pitt celebrated the American festival of Thanksgiving with an impromptu donation of the "entire contents of his wallet" to a local fund-raising effort. Hopefully he held back the photo of Angelina and past it's sell-by-date condom. Pitt is currently in the UK filming zombie movie World War Z and the cause in question was the neonatal unit at Southampton General Hospital.

Brad Pitt told People magazine "I did not know it was Thanksgiving until like midday....It completely escaped me until someone brought be some English pumpkin pie."

Two questions: 1. What is "English pumpkin pie"? 2. Where can we get some?
