Brad Pitt reportedly enjoyed an alcohol-filled weekend in France and Italy after being suggested to take a break by fiance Angelina Jolie.
Jolie apparently wanted Pitt to relax after dealing with the stress of her recent double mastectomy.
A source told the Sun that the 38-year-old actress figured that Pitt needed to let his hair down after a stressful few months, so she told him to go and have a boozy week with his mates and get it out of his system.
The Hollywood hunk stayed at a house in southern France that's owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
Pitt's vacation also included a three nights stay at George Clooney's luxury villa in Italy. In the past fortnight, he has also been on benders with U2's Bono and Larry Mullen.
