Brad Pitt Tops Hollywood's Top 15 Fathers

Brad Pitt tops AOL’s list of Hollywood’s Top 15 Fathers.

Here’s what they had to say about Hollywood’s hottest dad: “The number one Hollywood dad is a no-brainer. Brad‘s found his sexiest incarnation yet as a do-gooder global traveler who is a full-time father to Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2. And when the twins he and Angelina Jolie are expecting arrive, that dream of his own soccer team is within reach!”

Check out to see who else made the cut:

1. Brad Pitt
2. David Beckham
3. Johnny Depp
4. Will Smith
5. Matt Damon
6. Ryan Phillippe
7. Ben Affleck
8. Joel Madden
9. Seal
10. Patrick Dempsey
11. Barack Obama
12. Gavin Rossdale
13. Tom Cruise
14. Tobey Maguire
15. Mark Consuelos

Check out what they had to say about all of the top 15 father’s here.

DO YOU THINK AOL got it right with this list of fathers?

  • pwee

    Noo half of them don’t belong on there. Joel Madden is just wrong.

  • http://msn lips,tits and angie’s angels.

    Should be a tie between Will and Brad.

  • Mike

    Love him although I think Will Smith is a very good father…

  • http://msn lips,tits and angie’s angels.

    Happy father’s day to all the father’s out there.

  • Karen

    Why is Barack Obama part of Hollywood?

  • Orchid

    No, still too late! :lol:

    Do we know enough much about (some of) the others? Who cares about them!

  • Jessica

    Will should definitely be sharing #1 with Brad.

    Joel shouldn’t be on the list.

    But everything else looks okay.

  • Orchid

    I mean, do we know enough…. Scrap ‘much!’

    Jared, make it possible for us to edit our posts, within 5-10 minutes after posting!

    Love Brad the dad. I know he will have a wonderful father’s day this Sunday….

    he finally has his dream. a house full of kids and a loving partner.

  • flower

    hugh jackman is in this list? because I think he is a great dad

  • bt

    i agree with the first five, but ben should be in front of ryan. and barack, joel, and tom shouldn’t be on the list at all

  • dd


  • Katie

    Brad is a great dad along with Will and Gavin.these three should be three first number.

    happy father’s day to every father out there and all fathers who care about their kids in HW.

  • roger

    FIRST she said THIS

    Curious, I ask what they do with the blood. “Well, I’ve opened his vial,” she says. “Poured some on me. I’ve painted with it. There’s something very primal and romantic about it. I’ve considered pouring it on my clothes but I think people might be a little upset about it. I’m trying not to upset people.”

    and NOW she says THIS

    About Billy Bob’s blood:
    No! It was never a vial anyway. It was like a flower press. It was like from a slight cut on your finger and you press your fingerprint in. It was kind of a sweet gesture. I thought it was kind of romantic! I still love him dearly and think the world of him and I’m proud to have been his wife for a time. I don’t believe in regrets. It’s a dangerous habit to get into — it makes you pause in your life if you start thinking back and questioning yourself.

  • Sophie

    This list is so insulting. All f them are good fathers.

  • Shonathan Hilton

    BRAD AND DAVIND BECKHAM should be the top 2.
    Brad being number 1.
    so i totally agree with AOL

    I think PItt should eb recognized for being the hottest and sexiest dad alive

    i mean… look at him
    his image is of a “bad boy” and yet he is not one.
    he is being a great father to his kids and not only his biological kids but also kids from another country.

    to 17 explanations. It is pretty sad and pathetic that you actually took the time to find these quotes since your obviously not an Angelina fan!

  • soopx

    Brad you are always no.1 in my Books,God Bless you ,Beautiful man and Father.

  • sharon

    Congratulations, Brad. You are the hottest man and the hottest dad on earth. Happy Father’s Day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can you please give the link to the interview of the first quote? Because i’ve never read that in her REAL interviews.

  • Mary Nice

    Brad totally deserves to be number 1.he is always around his family and he never leaves them even not for film.Will and Tom and Gavin are also like him.they all are great fathers.but Ben Affleck??you hardly see him with his girl.just sayin.

  • Janie

    Mark Wahlberg? He’s an amazing dad!

  • #25?

    What about hugh jackman and robert downey jr?!?!

  • JanieDoll

    Gavin Rossdale is/was a dead beat dad….

  • http://fgdghbdf Sienna

    yay for Brad.he should be there.he is a great father.but I think all of them are great father to their kids.

    sure all of them have helps in their house,so since Brad has more kids,he has harder job.but all of them are good.

  • guli

    Thanks Jared!!!! Of course Bradley is #1 HW Dad :-)

    Happy Fathers Day to Brad, my hubby and all the great Dads all around the world :-)

  • Orchid

    I agree! If 8 to 15 are on the list, why not Hugh?

  • http://justjared Felinelilly

    Go Brad! :D Definitely the #1 sexiest dad! :D
    It’s amazing how trolls who claim not to care about Brad and Angie get here before the fans. :roll:

    Thanks Jared for the new thread. :)

    Explanations? @ 06/13/2008 at 3:05 pm

    That is completly made up. You haven’t even seen the necklace have you? It’s small litlle necklace. Here see for youself:

    It would be impossible for her to “Poured some on me. I’ve painted with it.” :lol: :lol:

    You should look for an interview she gave Larry King in August 4, 2001, while promoting Original Sin where she shows him the necklace. Listen to what Larry king says.

  • Lynda

    I’m loving how far down the list Tom Cruise is………..LOL

  • Helena

    What is the point of this list? All of these men could be bad fathers for all we know.

  • Tori

    Brad is indeed a great father,but what about older dad?I mean sam shepherd,RDN,Al pacino,or Rober redford.

    people should not forget about them.

    Brad will be father of 6 in less than two seems an like an extrem to me,and it is very hard to imagin he was not father three years ago.he was born a father,but he could and is handling it very well.he looks older but it is worthy cause and he knows it.

  • Ingrid

    I always thought that Seal came across as a good father, so it’s nice to see him here.

    I always thought Jude Law did, too. Did he not get included here because he isn’t ‘Hollywood’?

  • Katie

    I think Hugh deserves to be in the first 5 number.

  • lol

    1. Um, what about Christian Bale?? Considering how much he keeps his daughter out of the press, and is always playing the strong silent type, doesn’t he deserve some major Brownie points?? :(

    2. Who the F**K is Mark Consuelos? :(

  • Regina

    It’s kind of obvious as to why he’s no. 1, because everyone wants a piece of Brad and they used the word ‘sexiest’, which therefore means that they don’t really care about his fathering skills, they just think he’s hot, nothing more. Will Smith should’ve topped the list.

    Traten todos el gobierno
    del mundo y sus monarquías
    mientras gobiernan mis dias
    mantequillas y pan tierno
    y las mañanas de invierno
    naranjada y agua ardiente
    y riase la gente

    Cuando cubra las montañas
    de blanca nieve el enero
    tenga yo lleno el brasero
    de bellotas y castañas
    y quien las dulces patrañas
    del rey que rabió me cuente
    y riase la gente

    Busque muy en hora buena
    el mercader nuevos soles
    yop conchas y caracoles
    entre la meduna arena
    escuchando a filomena
    sobre el chopo de la fuente
    y riase la gente

    Pase a media noche el mar
    y arda en amorosa llama
    Leandro por ver su dama
    del golfo de mi lagar
    la blanca o roja corriente
    y riase la gente

    Pues amor es tan cruel
    por el P^´iramo y su amada
    hace el tálamo una espada
    do se juntan ella y él
    sea Tosbe mi pastel
    y la espada sea mi diente
    y riase la gente

  • Passing Through

    What in the hell is Becks doing on the list? He’s not “Hollywood”. He’s not even in the “entertainment” business. He’s an athlete – and a freaking soccer player at that. Suck ups.

    CLINIQUA @ 06/13/2008 at 2:59 pm OMG…way to go Angelina…World Refugee Day sounds like it will be AMAZING this year!! I am so proud of AJ! I wonder if Brad directed/video’d her youtube message?!

    ….and one last word on the plastic surgery victim…is it, or is it not hilarious how Dr Jeffrey Sachs was so diplomatic and tactful while still slamming Maniston for the do-nothing c*nt she is. I’m sorry, but the b*tch is 40, has been making tens of millions for YEARS, has been split from Pitt for 4, make that 5 if you count ‘unofficial’ separation…and she is still ONLY TALKING about what she plans to do.. I really want to move to NYC…I really want to do Broadway….I really want to move to Chicago…’I did, I do, and I will – have kids!’….’I will be on the road to having a family in a year’ – Maniston quote in 2005!! …..I want to find a way to be more charitable….I want to travel the world…I want to see the world….(bish has been to Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis’s Meh-hi-co compound and Miami)…I plan to go to Greece and discover my roots….I want to be more up on current events.. Bahahaha!! Listen, if she doesn’t have a hand-holder/babysitter (kristin Hahn, Andrea Buchwhatever, The Cox Arquettes, etc) to ‘partner’ up with and take most of the heat OR do MOST of the work…Maniston will NOT do it. Be it charity, philanthropy or directing a 10 minute movie. She’s only at the Sach’s party cuz the Cox’s do work w/omnipeace& probly to impress peeboy (that song he stole? ‘Waiting on the world to change,’ is a DIRECT RIPOFF of the Vaughn Bros. ‘Tick-Tock’ about social awareness…sounds the EXACT same…seriously..look it’ll get lots of hits from people ragging on him as a thieving FRAUD. he has a LOT in common with Maniston)…I think pathetically she’s out to impress a fellow fraud. hahaa. But actually, and as usual…it’s the Cox Arquettes that work with Omnipeace..they designed that shirt (which was actually pretty cool..peace sign that was the continent of africa).


    I want to bring Clinique post over here, coz she really gets it right always when it comes to Aniston.

    Im puzzled that she gets away with all her bulls, and all her phonyness! She deserved to be with that bedhopping Mayer.

    She is always riding the coattails of other people, when it comes to publicities, she rides under B&A cottails, and she always rides under Courtney’s cottails for her charities. And the worst thing, she gets to get the credits for most of it instead of her best friend.

    Its very clear that the reason there were there was for Courtney and David wedding aniv, but since these two had the charity event, of course Aniston and Mayer had to show up in the same event, too. And of course her PR spinned it as if it she was there for the charity event in the first place, with report about her talks with Jeffrey Sachs.

  • casey

    half dont belong on this.
    i mean they may be good
    fathers but thats not exacatly
    what the press shows us.
    so idk why like Barack is on there
    i mean im sure hes a good dad
    but right now with the president crap
    he basically has no time for his
    familyyy. comeonnn.
    but whatever. this is just my
    opinion.. yaayayay.

    hugh jackman is in this list? because I think he is a great dad


    ITA. Put Hugh on the list and take Becks off. No other athlete made the list, so why include him? The last time I checked his soccer team was still mediocre at best…

  • raye

    Why is Barrack Obama in the list, I didnt know he is a HW actor now. Lol, He is the odd man out in the list!

  • twinkle

    No doubt about that. Though three are not his biological children but he loves all four of them truly. We’d seen him spending and enjoying time with each or with all of them. And he’s wanting more. After the twins come out, he’ll say, “I forget which ones are adopted.”

    All of them are good fathers but I think that’s what makes Brad Pitt top the rest.

  • Kamara

    Regina @ 06/13/2008 at 3:22 pm I always had this question,Helena!!

    why you don’t say what you want to say in your first post as Helena’s poster?It is even more than obvious that you two are the same people.

    and can you explain how do you know Will is better father than Brad or any other guy in this iist?because he has put his kids in his movies,he is better father??!!

    Tom Cruise? BWAH! Yeah, he’s a good dad when the cameras are on.
