Brad Pitt was tricked into accepting there was prized covered under his French Estate Château Miraval.
In an interview with GQ Magazine, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star said he spent a year on the “foolish” dig to get the treasure.
Nonetheless, after nearly 12 months, Pitt at long last acknowledged it was every one of the a stunt so he would put resources into a radar organization.
The actor told the publication that he was told there was gold worth millions of dollars buried under his 1,000-acre estate in Provence.
“I got obsessed,” the 58-year-old actor said before adding, “Like for a year, this was all I could think about, just the excitement of it all.”
Pitt noted, “Maybe it has something to do with where I grew up, because in the Ozark Mountains there were always stories of hidden caches of gold.”
