One of the biggest movie stars on the planet has outed himself as a Liverpool fan.

Brad Pitt revealed his affection for the Reds during an interview about his latest film, Moneyball.

Asked who his favourite football team was, he replied: "I have some friends who are very close to Liverpool, so if I went another way I might be disowned."

Pitt's partner Angelina Jolie is a well-known Kopite.

Her support stems from the time she filmed Tomb Raider in North Wales, during which her adopted son Maddox spent three days receiving treatment at Alder Hey Hospital.

Maddox became a huge Liverpool fan as a result - and his love for the Reds seems to be spreading through Hollywood.
