Brad Pitt spent a whole year searching for treasure on his French estate

Brad Pitt was tricked into looking for a treasure buried in his own backyard. The Hollywood star revealed in his August 2022 GQ magazine cover story that a man once convinced him that one of the previous owners of his french castle stole millions of dollars Prayed during medieval times and buried in the estate.

I got obsessed”, confessed Pitt, 58. “For like a year, this was all I could think about, just the excitement of it all.” The Oklahoma native suggested that perhaps his education played a role in his enthusiasm.

“Maybe it has something to do with where I grew up, because in the Ozarks there were always stories of places with hidden gold“, said. However, after a year of searching, Pitt found no treasure and discovered that the man who told him about it was looking to invest in some kind of radar company.

The “Moneyball” star called the experience “pretty silly at the end,” but concluded, “It was just the hunt that was exciting.” Pitt’s French estate, however, has brought him good fortune: his vineyard is one of the world’s leading rosé wine producers, which has become a multimillion-dollar business.

But Château Miraval has also brought the “Fury” star some irritation recently. Brad Pitt sued his ex-wife Angelina Jolie in February after she sold her stake in the property, which the “Troy” star claims the “Maleficent” star did “illegally.”
