We hope this doesn’t mean you’re giving up your day job, Brad.

I’m a farmer now.

That’s Brad Pitt — actor, producer, father, partner, do-gooder — announcing yet another career shift to Wine Spectator in their June issue. The magazine sat down with Pitt at his and Angelina Jolie’s $60 million Miraval estate in Provence:

I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October: Are we picking today? Where are the sugar levels? How is the acidity? Is it going to rain? It’s been a schooling for me. In the off months, I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land.
(Didn’t Dubya pass the time clearing brush off his land?)

And lest you think that rose the Jolie-Pitts released last year to great acclaim was merely a lark:

What really interests me now are the reds … We envision a superb Provence red. A super Provence. Give us seven years … I asked the question, ‘Why can’t we make world-class wine in Provence?’ Let’s approach it like a film, and let’s make something we can be proud of and people can enjoy.

But don’t go thinking Miraval is your average $60 million farm:

We became impassioned with this place, which could produce its own wine, its own food, and become a place where artists could congregate and share ideas.

Make it Right supporters dropped more than $4 million into the charity’s coffers at a star-studded May 17 gala in New Orleans. Proceeds will support continued work in the city’s Lower Ninth Ward, where the charity, launched by actor Brad Pitt, has already built 100 homes for residents displaced after Hurricane Katrina.

Make It Right executive director Tom Darden confirmed the figure in an interview Friday (May 23). He expects more money to come in over the next few weeks as the group confirms pledges made at the party. About 750 people attended the gala.

“The turnout was smaller than when we first held a gala in 2012, but the value of the gifts were about the same,” Darden said. “It was a nice surprise. Getting this kind of big response early in the year front-loads our annual fundraising efforts and lets us plan more efficiently.”

It won’t be a sequel to their 2007 hit Mr. & Mrs. Smith, but Angelina Jolie and her fiancé Brad Pitt are making plans to team up again on the big screen.
“I wrote something a few years ago for Brad and me. Just for fun,” the Oscar-winning actress says in the latest issue of People.
“Just an independent little art piece. Because we don’t get to do those as much as we’d like. But it’s something really small and experimental.”

“They will, in a way, be the wedding planners,” she says of Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 7, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 5. “It’s going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other!”
