Chris Pine's ideal vacation combines ''eating, drinking and sleeping''.

The 'This Means War' actor recently spent time in Tuscany, Italy where he enjoyed a much needed break and indulged his three passions.

He told People magazine: ''This summer I went to Tuscany for a week, which was great. I spent a lot of time learning about food, wine, cooking and the region, which I didn't know much about.

''I spent a great deal of time eating and then sleeping, then eating and drinking even more. It was the best.''

Chris' time in Italy has served him well as he can now make spaghetti Bolognese.

He added: ''The last think I cooked was a spaghetti Bolognese. It's just one of the best dishes of all time. I put a little love into it. That's my secret.''

The 32-year-old actor doesn't get much time to relax so on his days off he loves to catch up with all of the TV shows he has missed.

He explained: ''I love 'Breaking Bad'. I'm also trying to get into 'Mad Men' and everybody's been telling me about 'Homeland', so I figure that's my next venture. Because of work it's difficult to keep up, so I usually end up going on a Netflix or iTunes binge.''
