Brad Pitt sat down with Ann Curry for a revealing interview about his latest passion project, 12 Years a Slave, and his thoughts on growing older. Brad's new film, which will be released in select theaters on Friday, tells the true story of Solomon Northup, who was born a free man in New York but was kidnapped and forced into slavery in the South. The movie features a lot of disturbing imagery, and Brad isn't sure if he would let his children watch the film with him. "Maybe my eldest I would, right now," he said. "I'd rather for the others to get a little bit older and understand the dynamics of the world a little more." However, Brad added that he would "absolutely" show his entire family the film once they were a little older. Watch the full interview above.
