Brad Pitt snuggled into his warm jacket and scarf after dining in Berlin yesterday. Looks like Brad will be busy on the set of Inglorious Bastards right until it's time to celebrate with that adorable party of six, but we'd expect nothing less from the hardest working celebrity of 2008. Brad recently opened up about his family's gift-giving system and their plans for settling down. Here's more:
- On settling down in France: "I've been dragging them all from continent to continent lately, so we're going to have to give them a break soon. For the long term, right now, we're choosing France. It's good living there, a really nice way of life. It's a place where the kids can run free and not be hassled – we have a good relationship with the locals, and it's a good base for the family."
- On holiday presents: "We do exchange gifts, although we don't feel any pressure to make them big or expensive gifts. The kids don't ask for big gifts for the reason that they don't see a lot of the American cartoon television, which is packed with all those manipulative commercials for big toys that look so fantastic. When they do see that stuff is when they start asking for the toys, so we figure if they don't see them they won't know they're there. So we have gifts, but we try to keep the money spent to a minimum. The rule is that everyone's got to make something for someone else, you got to put time into it."
- On his children: "I look down at the family and I see our boy from Vietnam, and our daughter from Ethiopia, and our girl's from Namibia,and our son who's from Cambodia, and . . . they are all brothers and sisters, man. They are all the same blood. It is such elation to see them all living together, and getting along together, and to know that we were able to give them a home — in some cases, to give them a life. It's a wonderful thing that we are able to do this because of the jobs we have — and it's a selfish thing, too, because the rewards are extraordinary."
