Truly just like Us! Brad Pitt went shopping at a London-area hardware store on Monday, March 28, and eagle-eyed fans were shocked to see the megastar perusing the store like any normal person.

The Big Short actor, 52, stopped by the West London location of B&Q with two of his kids, according to the Daily Mail, and was photographed perusing the gardening section of the store.

"Brad Pitt was at my work today," a store employee tweeted, alongside a snap of Pitt staring at him near a bunch of potted outdoor plants.

Another observer who was at the hardware store told the Daily Mail: "He just looked like any other regular dad going about his Bank Holiday Monday. The kids were extremely polite and he kept moving them out of the way so other people could get on with their shopping. You’d never guess it was one of the most famous men in the world."

Us Weekly exclusively revealed in January that Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as well as their six kids, Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 9, and Vivienne and Knox, 7, were packing their bags and moving to London for "at least six months" while the A-list hunk films the World War Z sequel.

A source told Us that while in London, Jolie "plans to focus on political projects dealing with the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe." Among her many roles, Jolie, 40, serves as a United Nations Special Envoy for Refugee Issues.

Of course, the power couple — who secretly tied the knot in September 2014 — consulted their kids before making the move overseas. “They’re participating more in the choices of where we go," Jolie told The Guardian in a November 2015 interview. "And if we have to go somewhere where they’re going to miss their friends, we try to get them back for a period of time — or we try to have their friends come out." The family has lived in New Orleans, New York, Malibu and their Chateau Miraval in France.
