Brad Pitt has an expensive new addition to his art collection after splashing out almost $1 million (£666,670) on a painting at an international art show.
The actor was among bidders at Tuesday's (09Jun09) Art Basel, a show featuring modern and contemporary works in Basel, Switzerland.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Pitt initially walked away from the Neo Rauch oil painting after pondering the purchase for several minutes.
But the Ocean's 11 star couldn't resist the artwork, and returned moments later to drop $956,000 (£637,335) for the nine-foot (2.74 metre)-wide piece, entitled Etappe.
The 1998 painting shows a swirling view of a driver behind a red racecar, with workers nearby carrying hoses.
