BRAD Pitt has revealed he had his testicles surgically removed seven years ago.
Writing in the New York Times, Pitt said he made the decision after realising he was going to lose them anyway.
The superstar actor and partner of Angelina Jolie said: “We met with a specialist who told us that because of a genetic predisposition there was a 98% chance that Anji would slowly take my testicles.
“I was shocked at first but then I looked into her amazing, terrifying eyes and realised it was completely inevitable.
“Since I met her my friends had been telling me that an Angelina Jolie-based lifestyle could cost me my testicles, but I was young and I thought, ‘this won’t happen to me’.”
Pitt added: “Anji has been the most amazing partner through all of this. She held my hand and whispered in my ear as the surgeons carefully chopped off my gonads.
“She now keeps them in a jar in a special room in the basement of one of our houses. I don’t know which one.”
Pitt revealed that the testicles can still produce sperm whenever Jolie decides she wants a baby.
