Brad Pitt surprises shoppers at hardware store

Brad Pitt stunned shoppers by popping up at a British hardware store on Monday (28Mar16).

The Ocean's Eleven star reportedly took time out of filming the World War Z sequel in the British capital to buy home improvement essentials at a branch of the British retail chain B&Q in Chiswick, London.

An employee at the store posted a picture of the actor near the till area wearing his usual flat cap and black winter coat, and wrote in the caption, "Brad Pitt was at my work today.”

Brad reportedly brought along two of his six children, with wife Angelina Jolie, and tried to keep his appearance as low-key as possible.

"He just looked like any other regular dad going about his Bank Holiday Monday," a source tells MailOnline. "The kids were extremely polite and he kept moving them out of the way so other people could get on with their shopping. You’d never guess it was one of the most famous men in the world."

The Hollywood couple relocated to Surrey, England for six months starting in February (16) for Brad's movie. According to Us Weekly, they have rented out a "beautiful, White House-style home" along the River Thames. The property reportedly boasts eight bedrooms, an indoor pool and a gym and costs $21,000 a month in rent.

They have six children; Maddox, 14; Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, nine, and seven-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Members of the family have recently been spotted shopping in London's Portobello Road market district, visiting top toy store Hamleys and reportedly went on a trip to a pottery studio earlier in March (16).
