Brad Pitt discovers new hobby amid divorce from Angelina Jolie -- sculpting!


Brad Pitt has found another love amid his heartbreaking divorce from Angelina Jolie -- sculpting.

The actor -- and now artist -- has been spending his time holed up in the Los Angeles art studio of friend and artist Thomas Houseago.

"He recently spent many days and even nights working on a sculpture," a source told People magazine. "People close to him are happy that he has found something new to be passionate about."

Pitt, 53, even spent all day before the 2017 Oscars working on his new piece of art. He later watched the award show with his friends as he cheered on "Moonlight" (which he was an executive producer for) as it won Best Picture.

However, the Oscar-winning actor's interest in art is nothing new: "He has always been very passionate about art and has a huge, very interesting collection."

While Pitt has spent lots of hours in the studio, his estranged wife Angelina Jolie has been globe-trotting with their six kiddos -- Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Shiloh, 10, Zahara, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.

Jolie and the kids recently spent some time across the pond in London, where the "Maleficent" star taught her first class at the London School of Economics. The UNHCR Special Envoy also met with Justin Wembly, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to discuss humanitarian issues as part of her United Nations role.

Pitt had a cheeseburger-filled reunion with his kiddos as soon as they returned to the states over the weekend.

Things are looking cordial between Jolie and Pitt after a tumultuous couple of months following the announcement of their divorce. Angelina opened up about her split for the first time in late February during an interview with BBC:

"I don't want to say very much about that except to say that it was a very difficult time," the actress said. "And we are a family and will always be a family. And we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it."
