Brad Pitt is reportedly a fan of historical battle re-enactment days.

The 48-year-old 'Troy' actor - who has six children with partner Angelina Jolie - apparently got a taste for the hobby whilst trying to find a way to make history appeal to his oldest son Maddox, 10.

A source said: ''Brad has always been passionate about history.

''Maddox was really interested in wars but hated all other aspects of the subject so Brad hatched a plan for them to dress up and go to re-enactment days.

''He bought suits of armour and even special weapons. Now all the kids are really interested in history.''

With his brood hooked, the 'Moneyball' actor is said to be planning to teach Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, and Shiloh, five, all about historic Battles while Angelina watches three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

The insider told The Sun newspaper: ''He's going to take the older kids to a Viking day after their first trip to an event near New Orleans. He is lining up a visit to a May Day event in Berkshire in the UK next.

''Angie always says she'll stay at home with the twins, but the kids wants to see her kick their dad's backside in a battle.''
