Brad Pitt might have more kids than a small civilization in the South Pacific, but the actor never backs down from placing his children and family ahead of his own career. In the October/November issue of Interview magazine, the actor opens up about what the future holds for his career and for his six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne.
Pitt, engaged to super actor Angelina Jolie, wants to leave a legacy behind for his family and does not want to “embarrass them”. Don’t worry, we doubt you’ll be able to embarrass the most die-hard of families (Honey Boo Boo’s included).
He says about his future film roles, “I want it to be worthy of enough of a story to leave the family, you know? They’re everything. The family is first. I also don’t want to embarrass them.” The actor also opens up about the quality of people in his life, work and projects, “Even more, as I get older, it’s about the company that I keep. That’s the most important thing to me – that if I’m gonna spend however long it takes to make a movie, give up 14 hours a day for however many weeks or months, then it’s very important for me to know that I’m working with people who I respect and enjoy and that we’re going for something together. That’s it really.”
There’s still no word on when Pitt and Jolie will be getting married, but many pundits have referred to the legalization of gay marriage as the deciding factor in the Pitt/Jolie engagement. Both actors are active supporters of the legalization of gay marriage and have said before that they will only get married once gay marriage is recognized in every state in America.
Until such time, we’re treated to the daily shenanigans of the Pitt/Jolie family and that adorable civilization they call “kids”.
