Angelina Jolie was reportedly questioned by the FBI for four hours over the Brad Pitt private plane incident

Brad Pitt has a room just for jam

2013-05-14 21:08
Los Angeles - Brad Pitt has an entire room just to store jam.

The Moneyball actor is a huge fan of Christine Ferber's artisan fruit preserves - which cost £12 a jar - so he and eldest son Maddox, 11, recently flew to her base in Alsace, France, and stocked up on 100 pots to keep at the homes he shares with partner Angelina Jolie and their six kids in Los Angeles and the South of France.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Brad is very particular about what he eats but fell in lust with this jam.

"He turned detective and discovered Christine has a little shop in the Alsace region, where she makes the artisan jams. It is very well known among the jam-making fraternity.

"From here, he jumped on a plane with Maddox and checked the place out first-hand. They had a brilliant time, tasting loads of jams and Christine's other homemade delicacies."

'Making his own jams'

"They came away with dozens of pots. He and Angelina have now had to designate a special room just to store it in their Brignoles villa."

The 49-year-old actor - who also has children Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with Angelina - now wants to try his hand at making his own jams.

The source added: "Now Brad is even beginning to experiment with recipes of his own."
