Brad Pitt is famous. Brad Pitt is rich. That means Brad Pitt gets to do whatever the hell he wants. His latest endeavor, according to an interview with Wine Spectator, is being “a farmer” and making wine.
“I’m a farmer now,” Pitt told Spectator. “I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October: Are we picking today? Where are the sugar levels? How is the acidity? Is it going to rain? It’s been a schooling for me. In the off months, I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land.”
We’re fairly certain that Pitt’s version of being a farmer is vastly different than the lives most farmers lead, but no matter! The 50-year-old actor says he’s a farmer, so that’s that.
Pitt — along with some other dude you don’t care about — graces the cover of Spectator’s June 30 issue. It’s available on newsstands today.
