London: Brad Pitt has hired a helicopter to travel across London because he is fed up of the rush hour traffic in the city.

The 47-year-old actor, who is shooting for his upcoming film 'World War Z' in the UK, hired the helicopter from a British supermarket chain Iceland, according to reports.

"Brad was sick of wasting time in the London rush hour traffic, so he chartered a helicopter to take him to Billericay for filming. It just so happens the one he's using belongs to Iceland. It's caused a lot of laughter on set -everyone assumed he'd fly in on Richard Branson's," a source said.

Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie recently chartered a train to take them and their six children from London to Scottish city Glasgow.
