Brad Pitt Covers 'The Hollywood Reporter'

Brad Pitt Covers 'The Hollywood Reporter'

Brad Pitt takes the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 48-year-old Moneyball actor – and Oscar nominee! – had to share:

On whether he’ll marry Angelina Jolie: “We’d actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”

On whether they’ll have more kids: “We haven’t closed the book on it. There’s a really nice balance in the house right now, but if we see the need and get that lightning bolt that says, ‘We can help this person; we could do something here,’ then absolutely.”

On what happened to his knee: “I think George went down the line, making things up. I was just walking in our backyard, on a hill, carrying my daughter, and I slipped — and it was those parental instincts: me or her. And she’s fine.” The cane is nowhere to be seen today, and he jokes about how his children kept stealing it until he gave them canes of their own.

    Waving to all fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • nev

  • dani

  • hilda

    Now this is the real thing, kind hearted, solild, family man and to top it off hot as hell!! Angie is having ALL of that!

  • Lucy

    “It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot”
    Sorry but I don’t understand that part since the kids are still very young and know nothing about marriage. I have kids same age and they never ask about marriage or wedding . they just don’t know about this things yet.

  • Lara

    Gorgeous cover and the interview is fabulous. Great job, Brad!

  • POOR TROLL

    cr THR

    Some snippets that I love.

    These interests and passions can pull him in a million directions, and he admits to occasional indecisiveness, an area where he points out Jolie’s influence. “She’s very quick, she’s very decisive — and that’s had a great effect on me. It’s her decisiveness that I have so much respect for.”

    Jolie’s unseen presence makes itself felt throughout our conversation, and his love for her is unmistakable.But the notion that she’s somehow reshaped this highly thoughtful man is a myth — at least, any more than he’s reshaped her. Like her, he wants to do work that survives; like her, he is committed to the world at large. Unlike her, he claims to have no gift for the gab.


    Poor hens. LOL

  • Mlllllle

    Brad…Are you trying to seduce me ?

  • soopx1

    What a Beautiful Man.

  • who

    OMG!!! I love this!!!!

  • jmho

    Such a beautiful man, inside and out.

  • rachel

    Love this man. I’m so happy for the Jolie-Pitts.

  • Passing Through

    Janice Mean must be crapping herself in happiness – Both Angie AND Brad VOLUNTARILY agreed to be on the cover of a mag she edits. If she and Bonnie Fuller were still speaking she’d totally call Bonnie and say, “Score! Boo ya!”

  • political stunts

    The whitehouse visit/photo-op already secured his win…wait and see.

  • Just Sayin

    What a beautiful man. Sigh

  • The ORIGINAL Miami D.

    For the love of GOD, get married already! Then, JUST MAYBE, this whole triangle nonsense can die it’s long awaited death! Just get ready for the tabs to start the “Jen tries to squash the wedding” & “Jens last phone call to get Brad back” or “Jen shows up at the wedding with a knife”……. Meanwhile, the woman is remodeling that new mansion she just bought with Justin, and has no idea it’s even happening.

  • political stunts

    If any of these nominees dared to critique the Messiah, or suddenly declare they are gasp conservative or republican…their careers would collapse faster than the ratings of the Media Elites.

  • The ORIGINAL Miami D.

    @Lucy: Maybe it’s because you never took the time to teach your kids to speak clearly? Kids that age DEFINITELY know what marriage is. Maybe not the babies, but certainly the eldest 4.

    .
    Yeah…hen heads are imploding all over the internet today. Brad openly admits to WANTING to marry Angie and saying they may not be able to hold out for gay marriage laws…then he admits she’s more decisive than he is and that helps spur him on…and he’s crazy in love with her…and they may have more kids… I had to stop right there because I can’t hear myself think over the noise from all those hen heads popping. Poor babies.
    .
    BTW – I’m gonna go about 2 micrometers out on a limb and say Lamey will be on her grassy knoll taking pot shots at the interview and say how it’s all about “campaigning” for the BA Oscar and blathering on about how badly Brad wants to win? Isn’t that a great big, “DUH!”? Everybody in the race wants to win or else they wouldn’t have let themselves be nominated. That’s another “DUH!”

  • Carly

    Love the caption on the cover ” The restless mind of a serous producer and actor as he questions God’s existence and authority and most of all, himself”

  • HOT

    He is 48 and he is still so gorgeous.

  • Dc

    He’s so gorgeous. Cannot wait to buy this.

  • who

    LOL at the troll thumbing the posts down. Is it because Brad is crazy in love with Angelina and WANTS TO MARRY HER? Love it.

  • rachel

    I enjoyed reading this interview. Brad is so candid and honest. He seems so happy and knows what he wants in life. I have been a fan for a long time and this is the first time I can say that he is not wasting his time on silly stuff. I am truly happy for you man…live your life.

  • Janekay

    I thought his last cover the other day was gorgeous, but this one is beyond gorgeous, totally loving! Jolie and Pitt rock!

  • http://yahoo.com Paige

    If they did announce they were getting married today or sometime soon i think i would die of happiness. Can u just imagine the media. They will go crazy it will be as big as william and kate’s wedding or bigger. I do hope they don’t go all out and just have an intimate wedding with just very close friends family and their beautiful children. His words give me hope. I love them they way they are but i just want to have the satisfaction of rubbing it in the jen hens that are stuck in the past faces. The ones that love saying he isn’t going to marry her and to rub in the female first bitches faces. I would love to see all the haters comments filled with ongoing jealousy. Love Brad Angie and the kids.

  • awwww

    Brad is handsome no doubt, but his kindness, thoughtfulness and depth make him irresistible to me.

  • http://cellphone susan

    Maybe Angie is ready to tie the knot, or they’re all ready married, that last tatoo may have be more than Brad’s birth place.

  • False Idols

    Trashing marriage and mocking Christians should land him more A list roles, more awards and the Presstitutes will be even farther up his assssss if possible.

  • Moon

    You fools really believe this crap!!!!!! Heide and Seal acted more in love and looked more in love than these two and look what happened there!!!!!
    There all actors. They know what to say and know how to act!!!!!

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    OMG! I so love this interview already. Love the cane story. I can’t wait when they annouce they are married.

    Btw, he is so hot on that cover.

  • Nina

    Ick. He looks like a girl. Gross!

  • cute!

    very sweet- maybe a wedding and, of course, a giant cake!! I wonder if they will do Valentines Day or perhaps they have a particular day that they already consider an anniversary…loved Moneyball & TOL- so glad Brad is getting his due.

  • Sadie

    I thought it was a ski slope that he fell on

  • Nina

    @Sadie: No the ski slop is his girly nose.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    @Passing Through:

    I can’t hear myself think over the noise from all those hen heads popping.

    You are too funny. OMG!! You crack me up.

  • Sadie

    He used to be so much hotter. And I know you’ll all say I’m an Aniston fan, but no, I don’t like her either. Angelina is freaking gorgeous, but he just looks so tired.

  • seek hel

    @Paige:

    Seriously, seek help! You’d die of happiness because two people you don’t know and will probably never know decide to get married? Their words give you hope? You only want them to get married because you want to rub it in the faces (faceless really because most of them are online) of people you don’t know? How dumb can you be? I seriously hope that you are 10 or younger because if not, I pity this generation.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    @Sadie:

    He is 48. Seriously, do you expect him to look like he’s 20 or 30. He looks damn hot for 48 year old.

  • busted

    Had to take a minute to thumb up all the fan post.. that was first.

    this is very good interview. I will so be getting this one. He looks great and man I have to agree with a poster.. I want them to stop talking about it and do it. Angie is the hold out. I get it. But Brad seems to have a plan in mind and is making it known to everyone. So it is going to be very interesting.

    I think they have really found their grove and it is going good for them. Very nice after 6 1/2 years. They made it. Against way more crap being thrown at them then some of the other couples we have seen. I think it did the opposite of what the haters wanted. It made them closer. Because it sure never broke them.

    I hope they do it after the Oscars.. Brad said that his role in 12 years A Slave is very small so he doesn’t have a movie coming up right now. If Angie starts that movie in April in Paris.. well they maybe heading out right after Oscars.

    I hope they do it.. They are a wonderful couple.

  • plez

    Kids watch cartoons and animated movies which shows weddings. Then ask Mommy or Daddy did you have a wedding like this? It’s as Angelina said she does not know if they really want to them to get married or just want a big party.

  • Grey

    It seems more like that Brad Pitt will get his first Oscar this year. Just too much covers with him.

  • http://cellphone susan

    I guess Brad would know if Angie was pregnant. Brad “we have not close the door on it. There is a really nice balance in our house now, but if we see the need and get that lightning bolt that says, we can help this person, we could do something to help here; absolutly.”
