Brad Pitt: I'm happiest in nature

Brad Pitt has told how he finds freedom from living a life under scrutiny in nature.

The heartthrob, 50, who has a tree tattoo on his forearm, has posed in a series of outdoor shots for Details magazine.

The Fury star told the publication: "My soul was stolen by the camera so long ago, I don't have to think about it any more... One definition of freedom is the ability to follow your bliss without being watched, recorded, scrutinised."

He added: 'I will always be most comfortable in the outdoors. I grew up in the Ozarks - something resembling Mark Twain country. The woods, rivers, bluffs, lakes and caves have all left an indelible mark on me. And I'm quite reverential when it comes to a tree."

He said that he liked to escape with a little solitude, adding: "I try to carve out time for a solo ride in every country I travel to, from the Highlands of Scotland to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco to the belly of India.

"I haven't even come close to fulfilling my list - yet. But in the traffic of LA with a helmet on, I'm just another a**hole on the road."

But for the newly-married father of six, despite wanting to be alone every now and again, his greatest source of happiness is his family.

"I've discovered I don't suck at being a dad," he told Details.
