Brad Pitt has touched down in Australia after doing the awards season rounds in Hollywood.

Ruslan Kogan, the Melbourne founder of online electronics retailer Kogan, yesterday tweeted a picture of himself with the star after they ended up on the same flight from Los Angeles to Sydney.

In the snap, a smiling Kogan can be seen standing next to the star, who looks cool with a crew cut and aviators.

"Landed in Aus. Brought a friend," the caption reads.

Pitt's wife, Angelina Jolie, arrived in Australia last year with their six children and has been shooting her second directorial effort, Unbroken, here.

The World War Z star has been in the US for awards season, thanks to his role as star and producer of Steve McQueen's lauded 12 Years A Slave, which is tipped to take out the Best Picture gong at March's Academy Awards.

Earlier, Kogan tweeted about scoring a seat next to the movie star: "Flying LAX to Sydney sitting next to Brad Pitt. I wonder if he's tweeting the same thing."
