Brunette beauty: Brad Pitt and the unknown lady are pictured during a break from filming on the set of his new film World War Z in Glasgow



He's a pin up for countless women around the globe, but very few of those admirers will ever get a chance to be as close to Brad Pitt as his on set assistant is.



The lucky lady has been looking after the Hollywood actor on the set of his new film World War Z and is sure to be the envy of Brad fans the world over.



Filming is taking place is Glasgow, where the streets have been transformed to resemble those of Philadelphia.





A threat?: How will Angelina Jolie react to Brad's close working relationship with the pretty lady?





In new pics taken on the set of the movie, Brad, 47, is seen taking a break from filming accompanied by the pretty brunette who is likely to be a set manager.



Of course, his partner Angelina Jolie will have little to worry about - the dynamic between the actor and his on set companion is nothing more than a professional working relationship.



However her beauty could well cause a slight bit of jealousy on Angelina's part, which is only natural for any man or woman whose partner works closely with an attractive member of the opposite sex.





Victims?: The new zombie thriller is based on a book of the same name





Glasgow is the latest city to undergo an amazing transformation thanks to the new zombie thriller.



Film staff have so far managed to transform Valletta and Falmouth into a world dealing with the aftermath of a global zombie war.



And this week the post-apocalyptic scenes witnessed in by locals in Malta and Cornwall have come to Glasgow, as Brad Pitt and his crew bring the living dead to the Scottish city.



The city centre has been transformed into Philadelphia for scenes for the actor's upcoming movie World War Z.

And Brad, 47, was right in the thick of it all as he chatted to his crew and watched as the streets were turned into the US city.

Glasgow was chosen to double as the Pennsylvanian city because of the huge similarities between them including the architecture, wide roads and grid layout of the cities.



Local people have been recruited as zombie extras and Glasgow City Council said the production will involve almost 1,200 people and the impact on local economy is expected to be more than £2 million.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun, a fan who had been waiting for them to arrive said: 'There were dozens of screaming fans waiting patiently for a glimpse. After all, it's not every day you can say you've seen a Hollywood movie star in Glasgow Central Station.



'But a glimpse was about all people were going to get because no sooner were they off the train than they were straight into some fancy people carriers and off.
