Brad Pitt has teamed up with luxury coffee and espresso machine brand De'Longhi.

Rise and shine: Brad Pitt starts his day with a cup of Joe made by a De’ Longhi coffee machine.

Speaking to People magazine, he said: "I wanted to work with De'Longhi because I appreciated their approach for the campaign — they have confidence in their product and want to celebrate the artistry of their Italian heritage without overdoing it. 

"[Director] Damien Chazelle's concept resulted in a beautiful product — just like their coffee machines, creating an indirect nod to the elegance, design and harmony that the brand naturally embodies."

The pair also worked with La La Land cinematographer Linus Sandgren and composrer Justin Hurwitz on the campaign.

The cinematic advert gives viewers a peek at a "day-in-the-life" of Brad himself, as he's seen picking up coffee beans and riding his motorcycle in California, along with a stop off at a gas station before getting home to enjoy a home-brewed cappuccino.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star praised the company's "attention to detail" and noted that things that seem small can "have a profound effect" on people's lives.

He explained: "De'Longhi's attention to detail makes me appreciate the brand even more.

"That sort of thoughtfulness is a distinctive value of Italian design — how you design something for the people who are going to experience it: certain details that might not be immediately obvious, but in the end have a profound effect on you and your life."
