Brad Pitt keeps in touch with his family when he is away working by sending them regular podcasts.
The 42-year-old actor is currently filming 'Ocean's Thirteen' meaning he is away from partner Angelina Jolie and their three children a lot.
However, Brad has now started making podcasts - a type of online audio recording - detailing what he has been up to so his family, especially adopted son Maddox, won't miss him too much.
A family friend said: "Brad and Mad are so inseparable they need a way to keep in touch when Brad's away."
Maddox also loves recording podcasts for his dad and even makes films of himself riding his bike and painting.
Brad and Angelina, 31, have two other children - Ethiopian orphan Zahara and baby Shiloh Nouvel, their only biological child.
