In an interview with Access Hollywood Live, the 50-year-old singer said that she helped teach the 47-year-old Oscar-nominee the art of fly-fishing back in the early '90s.

"I love to fish. I grew up in the Midwest and loved to fish, totally a huge fly-fishing [fan]," Etheridge told Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday. "I taught Brad Pitt how to fly-fish in my swimming pool!"

So why exactly did Pitt, who now has six kids with longtime love Angelina Jolie, need to learn how to hook a fish? "He was up for the part in A River Runs Through It," Etheridge explained. "So he had to learn how to fly-fish. So there we are in Hollywood, in my pool, and I'm teaching him how to do it!"

So how were his fly-fishing skills? "Well, he got the part!" Etheridge said. "He did great."

"He's a wonderful guy," she added. "I haven't seen him in years. Love you Brad, wherever you are."
