Hollywood star Brad Pitt, Steve Job's widow Laurene Powell Jobs and UK-based stock-picker Neil Woodford are all reportedly investing in a little known "cold fusion company," the Financial Times said on Friday.
North Carolina-based Industrial Heat, which is valued around $1 billion, is designing "power sources that run on 'low-energy nuclear reactions'," the report said.

Although the report says there is no public evidence Industrial Heat's science works, the company has won over movie star and environment activist Pitt, the wife of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, and English fund manager Neil Woodford's Woodford Patient Capital Trust.
