Brad Pitt has been given a special treat for his upcoming 40th birthday - an extra year.

The actor was convinced he turned 40 last year (02) and tried to talk his wife Jennifer Aniston out of planning a special bash for him in December (03).

But he was left both red-faced and delighted when he discovered he's a year younger than he thought he was.

He says, "I was arguing with Jen about my age, and we had to call my mom to find out how old I was. Now it's no big deal because I already feel like I'm 40."
