Video of Brad Pitt on The Today Show Talking About Marriage to Angelina Jolie and His Family

It's Brad's Turn to Praise the Jolie-Pitts and His Projects

Before Brad Pitt took Angelina Jolie to the premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button we saw him filming an interview for The Today Show in New Orleans, which aired this morning. Brad spoke about the success of his Make It Right program and what it was like meeting the specific families that have already moved in. The actor also spoke about his own family dynamic and the possibility of marriage as he continued on the Jolie-Pitt tradition of talking up his children.

  • On why he doesn't like talking about his family: "I just walk away feeling bad about it when I do. There's no way to give it true validity and weight and what it means to you in your life. and it seems to get cheapened somehow as it goes through the filter and the airwaves. Some things you just want to keep close to the chest."
  • On his family: "I will say this — I'm really proud of this family. I look at my sons and daughters. ... It's a rich home, I feel rich being around them. Each one offers so much to the mix. Surprisingly though, six kids is not as easy as you would think."
  • On whether he'll marry Angelina: "If we feel it's important to our kids we'll do so."

Brad seems a little more standoffish about talking about his family this time around, but he still takes a moment to glow about his kids. After the interview, Anne seemed relieved to reveal that Brad's mustache is just for his new movie, and we do hope he isn't getting too attached to it.

He was joking when he made this statement: "Surprisingly though, six kids is not as easy as you would think." If any of you actually watched the video, you would understand that he is kidding. Pretty boring interview, I have to say...I can't believe they've only built 8 homes. It seems like they should've been able to build more in the past year or so, but I guess it's all about "affordability" as Brad says.

Six kids is pretty easy, but I guess it is harder when you're a celebrity.

I just watched this it me, or does he seem a little crazy? He's twisting and turning, he just doesn't seem "normal"? His body language is very confusing, so unmanly ((( Stupid interview, not deep at all (((

Evidently cities find some benefit in giving tax breaks to film there. NYC upped their tax break (I think it's 30% now, plus other benefits.) Seattle, San Francisco, Miami and dozens of other cities have given tax breaks as a way to lure film business to their cities. Some cities even spend money on staff to solicit film makers. That's been going on for decades.

lol Lisa. don't resist. And Scout, lady, man, and whatever you are, please. Unlike you, I don't have the time to hate on people. If you don't like them, don't like them. Don't waste your time and energy following every story on them just to say how much you don't like them, you'd find the feeling refreshingly uplifting.

Myst, you're obsession with defending them is hilarious. If I bother you so much why do you keep responding to my scout00 posts? Don't know who the other person is but I think it's awesome that you think we are the same person. Not really sure what you gain from that but if it makes you feel better then great. Gotta go, but let's do this again sometime.

I'm actually not in love with Brad or Angelina but I don't despise them either. I don't really despise any celebrities because its not that serious to hate someone you truly don't know. I don't care, but when people come on here with the same old tired shit its lame and annoying. At least come up with a different argument.

"people enjoy liking angelina because it makes them feel like they are doing something buying a prius or bragging about their organic diet." Uhhh no, mindreader. Well my parents did go to New Orleans after Deja Vu came out, so I do know someone who went their because of a movie. Myst I know their are people who have multiple accounts but I don't feel looking anyone's profile.

Scout, or whoever you choose to be today, why don't you give it up already. It's pretty clear to everyone on here, just form your post that you are the same person who continues to come on saying the same thing over and over again. We get it. You HATE them, they are the scums of the earth and exploiter of children. Angelina is blood drinking, brother kissing, nymphomaniac who snatch Brad from your precious Jennifer and trapped Brad with her vile ways and her horde of children. Did I get it all? As as said before you obsession with them is pretty obvious and at this point disturbing. Why don't move on and get some help while you're at it.

TYou are right, I read the nymag synopsis not the actual TImes. I'm actually a taxpayer in RI & NY. I don't believe my tax dollars are well spent on films. RI experienced the fruitlessness of these ventures years ago. Money should be spent on long term job security, not some film that brings a few months of "tourism" revenue. I have yet to meet someone that actually traveled with the purpose of seeing a movie being filmed. Maybe you actually went to NO to see Brad and contributed? That is my opinion, I understand you may not like it but cause you are a Brad Pitt fan, and that is your right.

Myst, the syntax and in my opinion, "verbage" in both Cindy and Scouts posts lead me to also believe them to be one in the same.

saradeg I'm sorry, but there is not one paragraph or sentence that even suggests that there's a public outcry in NOLA over any of this. Yes, a politician or two plus a civil servant or two bitched, and I'm certain all did so because someone told them to, but other than this, "and the link is provided for others to read what isn't in there thank you very much," this article proves squat about the taxpayers storming the capital over Hollywood NOLA style.

Poor, poor Myst. Can't handle the fact that more than one person despises her beloved idols. Feel free to check out other blogs. Unless one person can use thousands of different names at once I believe there are lots of people out there who don't like Brad Pitt. Besides, I think it's Angie that won't let it go four years after the fact. Why else keep giving interviews where she changes her story about when she fell in love with Brad? This love-triangle thing is good for her business. Also, it doesn't change the fact that all they do is exploit their children and their relationship. And that's very 2008 Miss Myst. From the looks of it, maybe someone told Brad he needs to try a new approach for 2009. Like keeping his stupid mouth shut about his family. After years and years of exploiting every moment of their private lives it can't come a moment too soon.

wadewifey, there's no arguing with her/him/them. This person like to come on multiple names just to spew the same junk over and over again on each post that has to do with Brad and/or Angelina. Just check profiles to see when they join and what posts they post under. The evidence is very clear.

Again Sarah its not that deep are you a New Orleans taxpayer? Were the taxpayers mad when Denzel did Deja Vu in the N.O.? That a serious question, I'm not even being sarcastic.
sarahdeg sarahdeg 8 years
Cinquette- Actually the NY Times has already reported that taxpayers were outraged. Who said Brad Pitt is the only actor out there? Of course he isn't, but he is the one accepting the $27million, the highest amount paid every in LA.
Frank-y-Ava Frank-y-Ava 8 years
OMG Scott it's not that deep, why do you waste so much energy on trying to convince other people on how terrible Brad and Angelina are. There is nothing wrong with not liking them but no need to post the same shit in every thread.
