He has wealth and possessions beyond his wildest dreams.
But that did not stop Angelina Jolie giving Brad Pitt a rare watch said to be worth more than $3 million as a wedding gift.
The saucy Maleficent actress bought her man a much coveted 1952 Patek Philippe platinum chronometer, a legendary design by one of the most respected of all Swiss watchmakers.

Just what he Wanted: Brad Pitt will have been delighted to have been gifted a rare watch as a wedding gift from Angelina Jolie
Angelina's romantic gesture became known after she had a friend take it to shop to have it inscribed - 'To Roly from Nessa.'
The couple play these characters in drama By The Sea, a movie they are currently filming in Malta, and which the actress is also directing.
George Farrugia who runs a jewellery shop on the neighbouring island of Gozo, told The Mirror: 'I did inscribe the watch, it was for Brad and it was a rare one.
'Oh yes, it was very valuable.'
However the huge value of the watch did not faze the experienced 57-year-old.

He said: 'I wasn't nervous about the inscription because I knew I could do the work perfectly.'
Of course, a $3m watch is a mere drop in the ocean for the wealthy A-listers, with Brad being worth an estimated $240m and Angelina not far behind at $145m.
The happy couple wed in a lavish ceremony last month, a long awaited wedding as they have been together for nine years since Brad decided to trade in ex-wife Jennifer Aniston for the 39-year-old Tomb Raider favourite.
They have been trying to stay out the limelight while filming their latest money-spinning project, though they have taken their massive six child brood bowling in Gozo.
With his matinee idol looks fading and facing increased competition from younger heartthrobs, Brad has made the wise decision to take it easy and enjoy more time with his family.
He told GQ: 'I've been slowing down for a while and transitioning to other things.'
