In issue 225 of Total Film magazine , Brad Pitt reveals the gruelling training regime he went through in order to get ready for gritty war movie Fury .
Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad - Pitt tells us that the training for David Ayer's movie was anything but a cake walk.
"We studied tactics, we went to visit bases, we had an endless reading list," Pitt laughs.
"We had these crazy texts in the middle of the night describing the character. It culminated in this bootcamp situation, which was just a real eye-opener for us."
He adds: "We want to be pushed to places we haven't been."
Fury opens in the UK on 24 October.
