Brad Pitt was so inspired by his new World War II film "Fury" he purchased one of the airplanes used by the Royal Air Force in battle, according to a U.K. report.
The "World War Z" star reportedly paid $3.3 million for the World War II-era Spitfire airplane.
A source tells The Sun, "Brad, who has done everything from sleep in the trenches to learn to drive a tank for the film, has now invested in one of the iconic machines."

Pitt will also reportedly take flying lessons at the Boultbee Flying Academy in Oxford to learn how to fly the airplane.
A spokesperson for Boultbee says, "We don't comment on who we teach, but we have high-profile people. Buying Spitfires is very popular with wealthy individuals."
