Brad Pitt has become obsessed with cleaning while he has been staying in England working on new films The Counselor and World War Z.
The star is staying in Surrey, Southern England, and has turned his hand to household chores while fiancee, Angelina Jolie - with whom he raises six children - has been visiting a war zone.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Brad has always been an attentive father, but recently he's becoming more domesticated, too.
"The couple have a lot of help around the home, but Brad's started getting quite into sorting out the washing and doing the ironing himself.
"He's been pottering around the house a bit while Ange is away, and it helps to keep him occupied.
"He likes nothing more than doing a bit of housework before getting the kids to help him prepare dinner, which they love.
"He's turned into a right Mr Muscle. He's also been going to the local supermarket, and runs errands to the local dry cleaners in Camberley."
The 48-year-old actor has also told how his attitude to life has completely changed since he became father to his kids Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
He said: "For me, being a father has changed everything for me as far as perspective and interests go. I just want to take care of myself and be around them."
While Brad has been looking after the children and the cleaning, Angelina - who has also been filming in the UK on new movie Maleficent - spent her weekend touring Iraq as part of her role as a United Nations goodwill ambassador. There she made a humanitarian plea to Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, asking him to ensure that refugees from war torn neighbour Syria have enough supplies to live. Last week she also visited a refugee camp in Syria, which moved her to tears.
