Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are renting a luxury mansion in Australia for £23,270-a-week.

The Hollywood couple already have a multi-million pound home in Malibu and on the French Riviera, but have reportedly splashed out on a plush pad in the posh suburb of Bellevue in Sydney as they want to spend the rest of the year Down Under with their six children, Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

The lavish property - used before by Will Smith - is complete with 12 bedrooms, a private tennis court, a swimming pool for a quick dip to cool down, a gym, and a cinema room to unwind after a hard day at work.

Estate agent Julie Rogers, who leased out the property to the couple, is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: ''It's without doubt one of the finest properties in Sydney.''

The family's new home, which is set on 4,029 sq metres of land, is part of Angelina's new plan as she prepares to start directing her second film 'Unbroken'.

Meanwhile, Brad, 49, is expected to fly in to Australia this week from the UK to join his wife and their brood after he wraps up filming for 'Fury' in Hertfordshire.
