Brad Pitt was dismayed to discover photos of his Kenyan beach holiday with alleged lover Angelina Jolie earned a persistent photographer in excess of $500,000 (GBP263,200) - because the money could have been much better spent.

In an explosive and candid interview with US newswoman Diane Sawyer on PRIMETIME LIVE, which was broadcast in America last night (07JUN05), the movie hunk admits he would have set up the shots himself if he knew the snaps would be so lucrative.

He told Sawyer, "It's amazing, the bounty that is on my head and the lengths that these people go to to get these shots, and the amount of money that they're paying for these shots.

"It's something like half a million dollars or three quarter of a million dollars for the shots.

"I can't help but think what that money could have gone to. Hell, I would have set up the damn pictures myself."
