Movie heart-throb BRAD PITT was happy to rough it in the gym while training for hit movie SNATCH - to the amazement of his trainer.
Professional boxing coach RICKY ENGLISH, who taught Pitt how to fight for the new movie from his gym in Watford, Hertfordshire, England, was amazed by the actor's lack of showbiz fussiness.
He says, "I didn't even tell my mum that Brad Pitt was coming here until after he had gone. He came down five or six times and
wasn't vain at all."
He adds, "I thought he'd be worrying about his hair and be staring in the mirror all the time but he just wanted to learn.
"He was one of the boys. He didn't care that my place isn't nice
and clean. Now, it's back to business as usual and a quiet life."
Regulars at English's gym include NIL BY MOUTH star RAY WINSTONE.
