You can’t be lucky enough to be born Brad Pitt and still find gold in the backyard in the same life, right? Lol In an interview with GQ released this Wednesday (22), the star caught the attention of netizens by telling the story of a treasure hunt. It all started at the property he owns in Provence, France, called Château Miraval. In fact, this was the place where the star and his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, got married in 2014.

Brad said that a few years ago he was approached by a man who told him the place had millions of dollars worth of gold buried in the ground.

The actor also commented that he bought radar equipment specifically to hunt for treasure. “Maybe it has something to do with where I grew up, because in the Ozark Mountains there are always stories of hiding places with hidden gold”, continued. Unfortunately, the treasure was never found and, according to Brad, the man was just “looking for money for some radar company, an investment opportunity.” “It was a pretty silly ending. It was just an exciting hunt.”he admitted.
