Brad Pitt's Life Is a Parade of Family, Love, and Travel

Brad Pitt's Life Is a Parade of Family, Love, and Travel

Brad Pitt is appearing on another cover as he starts promoting Inglourious Basterds including this weekend's Parade. In addition to striking a series of sexy poses, he sat down to chat about his priorities. He spoke a little about his love of family, including his newly 8-year-old son Maddox, and the life he and Angelina have built together. Here's more:

  • On wanting what's best for his kids: "Would it bother me if a child of mine turns out to be gay? No, not one bit. Listen, I want my kids to live the lives they want to live. I want them to be fulfilled. I hope I teach my kids to be who they really are."
  • On not marrying Angelina: "I have love in my life, a soul mate--absolutely. When someone asked me why Angie and I don't get married, I replied, 'Maybe we'll get married when it's legal for everyone else.' I stand by that, although I took a lot of flak for saying it--hate mail from religious groups. I believe everyone should have the same rights. They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I've had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment."
  • On the right to love: "Man, I resent people telling others how to live! It drives me mental! Just the other night, I heard this TV reverend say that Angie and I were setting a bad example because we were living out of wedlock, and people should not be duped by us! It made me laugh. What damn right does anyone have to tell someone else how to live if they're not hurting anyone? How many times do you think real love comes to someone in a lifetime? If you're lucky, maybe two or three."

  • On real love: "Do you know how you tell real love? It's when someone else's interest trumps your own. I like to put it that way: trumps your own. Love of somebody else--of family, of your kids--becomes the most important, most worthwhile thing in your life. It's what you foster and protect. You have to recognize real love when it's there and know that in going after it there is always risk. To live with love, you have to chance losing it. That's also true when you decide to have kids. It's the risk you take for love."
  • On his early days: "I liked to smoke a bit of grass at the time, and I became very sheltered. Then I got bored. I was turning into a damn doughnut, really. So I moved as far away from that as I could. I was done. In Missouri, where I come from, we don't talk about what we do--we just do it. If we talk about it, it's seen as bragging."
  • On building his home: "This was my first architectural experience where I tried doing something myself. It is something I wanted to do for decades. This is like play to me. It's the only thing that can take me away from any problems I may have. After a few years of work, it came out so nice. Now I've got so many damn kids, it's the only place we could all fit in. We're double-bunking rooms as it is.."
  • On the stone grotto behind the waterfall in their pool: "[It] 's a great place for sex."

I love the interview. Some quotes are old and was said sometime ago, others are new. I think by the time you reach 45 years old you pretty much know what you want and I trust most of your actions will result as something positive in your life. I believe in God but it does not matter to me if he does not, he is doing his good deeds now. I also like the part of this interview he took to "explain" the path he chose as to when to have children and the person he is with now. Hey,it is HIS LIFE, there is so much negativity a person can take before they have to set the record straight and I respect that, the man owes us nothing. Kudos Brad.Hi Ginger.

Great interview, he seems really smart. I can't believe some people are still so hooked on the 'people have to get married if they have a child' thing. Maybe it's a US thing though, because it's not frowned upon here in Sweden. Just because you don't want to get married, it doesn't mean you don't love one another or do your best to stay together.

i lost all respect for him after he said he doesn't believe in God

I don't mean he follows chameleons. LOL. It made more sense in my head.

Jaxon, you're absolutely right. He gives textbook interviews in the style of George Clooney and has never come across as knowing himself. I've always kind of seen him as a chameleon follower, this relationship is no different. Hard to respect someone like that. The one good thing about him is he's not afraid to make interesting movie choices, although I have a feeling that has more to do with his tragic problem of being "too pretty" and having to "overcome that". Gag.

Wow - so much negativity on here! I don't love him or hate him either way, he sometimes has some interesting things to say. And we're all certainly entitled to our own opinion but I think we all need to start worrying about what actually affects us instead of what some "celebrity" is doing or saying, because in the long run it just simply doesn't matter and you're getting yourself heated up over something you can't do anything about. It's pointless. If you don't like him, nobody's twisting your arm to read it.
