Brad Pitt pays surprise visit to Mackintosh masterpiece
August 24 2011
With Angelina Jolie in tow Pitt toured the house to teach the Tomb Raider star about Mackintosh and architecture – culminating in the purchase of some novelty pencils for the pair’s six children
Pitt has professed himself to be an avowed mackintosh fan having previously visited Hill House in 1994 whilst filming Interview with a Vampire.
Recalling the experience Pitt said last year: “I went to Scotland years ago. The architecture is something. Charles Rennie Mackintosh, he was the man."
Lorna Hepburn, the National Trust for Scotland’s manager at Hill House, said: “Both Brad and Angelina were relaxed and friendly and clearly interested and knowledgeable. They were particularly taken with the decor of the master bedroom.”
Pitt has been filming sci-fi horror World War Z on the streets of Glasgow for the past week.
