Brad Pitt eats a lot in his movies. This is well-documented fact.

There’s even a widely-seen YouTube supercut pulling together every scene in which he chomps down on nuts, burgers or just simply talks about food on screen.

If you haven’t seen it yet, hit play below to get yourself up to speed.

Now take into account this video was released in 2012, before Pitt’s brutal war drama Fury – a film that’s entire central set piece took place around a dinner table, giving Pitt free reign to scoff to his heart’s content.

Brad loves his food, that’s for sure.

Now you can dine just like him thanks to Fat Brad, a cookbook published by Long Prawn that’s pitched as “a definitive exploration into the on-screen eating habits of William Bradley ‘Brad’ Pitt”.

“Part fan fantasy, part filmic study, Fat Brad meticulously reimagines the best scenes where Brad chomps,” the official description continues. “From Rusty’s car park burger in Ocean’s 11 to Tyler’s questionable Seafood Bisque in Fight Club, no plate is left unturned.”

With World War II drama Allied, Netflix’s War Machine and the prospect of a World War Z sequel on the cards there’s plenty of scope for a follow-up book to happen.

Although the food on offer in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of World War Z 2 probably isn’t too appetising.
