Brad Pitt's youthful secret

Brad Pitt credits "a lot of love" for his youthful looks.

The 51-year-old actor - who has children Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, nine, and twins Knox and Vivienne, seven, with wife Angelina Jolie - also believes in never overindulging in his favourite things.

Asked his secret to looking and feeling young, he told 'Extra': "Everything in moderation and a lot of love."

The 'Moneyball' actor is looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with his family and plans to cook up a feast in the kitchen.

He said: "Yeah, I'll get in there, I'll mess it up a little bit. We got Thanksgiving, man -- I'm all over that turkey."

Brad can next be seen in 'The Big Short' - which he also produced - and felt it was "important" to make the movie, which is about the build-up of the housing and credit bubble, which led to America's recent financial crisis.

He said: "I wanted to play a small part in it to help get it to the screen, so I jumped in on the acting side as well.

"It was a really important story to me, I'm still angry by it, that no one was held accountable, this financial crisis, this housing meltdown that so many people got hurt by."

And he particularly enjoyed shooting the movie in one of his favourite places.

He said: "I like any excuse to get back to New Orleans."
