Brad Pitt on Being a Father: 'It's the Most Beautiful Thing'

Brad Pitt on Being a Father: 'It's the Most Beautiful Thing'

Brad Pitt gets his close up and looks very steamy on the cover of UK magazine Psychologies.

Here’s what the 50-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On being a father: “I feel like the richest man alive since I’ve become a father. Being a father has changed me on so many levels and made me more generous and alive. I see my children as an essential part of my life, and it means so much to be able to educate them and help them make their way in the world as they grow up. I love being a father and all the responsibilities that entails. It’s the most beautiful thing you can experience.”

On being a protective parent: “I worry about them all the time. That’s the emotional bond and responsibility that sweeps over you when you have a family to look after. I care about them more than I care about myself, which I think is the real definition of love. You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family.”

On his wife Angelina Jolie: “Angelina is just amazing. I’ll be tired and lie down on the sofa and then she’ll keep going until late at night. And that makes me feel like, ‘Why am I taking it easy?’ so I’ll go help out and play with the boys and get them to bed. You realize that you always have the energy inside you, and as a parent you need to have a lot of willpower.”

    @Phool, I just left you a comment on the last thread. Btw, those quotes are old. Why is JJ putting them up now?

    @PT, thanks for answering my comment yesterday about the $13m dollar wedding.

    btw, who is the fan(s) making hate comments here? I guess someone
    just wants to start some BS. Why is it when the hate filled comments about death and murder posted about the Jolie Pitt’s family the concern citizens are not here calling out the nutters? I guess it’s ok to threaten to stab Angelina 100x to kill her but not ok for the fans to laugh about someone clothing.

  • http://justjared Felinelilly

    The last quote sounds really familiar about being tired and laying down but going to help with the boys and helping Angelina out. He’s said it before. Is it a recycled quote or a brand new interview?

    Brad looks great, gawd those blue eyes…

    Inside Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s First Month of Marriage
    Just like their late-August wedding, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s post-”I do” focus is on the family.
    Since their private French nuptials, the Jolie-Pitt clan has been in Malta balancing a honeymoon, family vacation and work.
    The newlyweds and their six kids (Shiloh, Vivienne, Zahara, Maddox, Pax and Knox) have been spotted dining and shopping throughout the island of Gozo, where they’re staying. Last week, the Jolie-Pitts stopped by Jack’s Bar and Grill and Bowling.
    “They had fun with the kids,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “They laughed and they played around. They looked relaxed like every other family on Sunday – they were friendly with everyone and smiling.”
    On another occasion, the brood had some family fun yachting and swimming in the Mediterranean.
    “They are so nice and warm,” an observer tells PEOPLE, adding that the “children [had] a great time swimming and learning wakeboarding and waterskiing.”
    Jolie likes to lie low on their trip. While on a solo outing, she was recognized by fans but “she just smiled and waved,” another island observer says. Another source adds that she’s even trying to learn the native dialect to fit in: “She has asked for a Maltese translator because she wants to speak with the locals in their own language. How nice she is!”
    On top of fulfilling duties as special envoy of the U.N. High Commissioner of Refugees, Jolie has had her hands full wearing many hats as the writer-producer-director-star of By the Sea.
    In the drama, she and Pitt reunite on screen as a troubled married couple in the ’70s who draw close to inhabitants in a small town in the south of France.
    Jolie told Entertainment Weekly: “I chose to set By the Sea in the 1970s, not only because it is a colorful and alluring era, but because it removes many of the distractions of contemporary life and allows the focus to remain squarely on the emotions that the characters experience in their journey.”

  • Ellie

    @Etheridge attack on Angie

    Ok, I heard the interview and I’m sorry if you didn’t like it but Etheridge has gone through cancer and as a survivor she is entitled to an opinion more than the rest of us. Plus she makes a very valid point, whether you like it or not.

  • chunky pipe


    Hola!…que pasa mami?…looking good ma.

  • Rose from Temecula

    This may have been a recycled interview, but what he says resonates, stays true to how a parent feels for his/her child or children. Somehow, you’ll have that extra energy to do more. Angie is one mother who is very caring and loving to her children. God bless the Jolie-Pitts and all their true and loyal fans.

    ROTFLMAO at the Peeps story on Lawyer chick and Porgie. If I hadn’t already gagged at the Vogue story…this over-the-top caca would have me choking on my tongue. If Vogue was Danielle Steel, then Peeps is a cheesy Harlequin romance novel…circa 1975. Porgie’s so “perfect”…that Lawyer Chick even quit smoking, y’all! Seriously, Stan Rosenfeld just told Stephen Huvane to bow down and kiss is pinky toe, “THIS is how you work, biitch! And Amal’s got better hair!”
    One night last summer, Amal Alamuddin and Jae Kim, her dear friend since law school, had a heart-to-heart about love.
    “[We] stayed up talking late into the night about relationships and whether she would ever meet her partner in life,” recalled Kim during a touching speech at Alamuddin and George Clooney’s Sept. 27 wedding ceremony. “She had just been picked the ‘Hottest Barrister in London,’ and I was concerned that this would not work in her favor, as most men found her intimidating already.”
    What’s more, Alamuddin’s bar was almost impossibly high. “The list of things she was looking for in this man, she readily admitted, could not realistically be found in one person,” shared Kim. “She was looking for Mr. Perfect, and he was nowhere to be found.”
    Until she met George.
    While Alamuddin, 36, was clearly smitten, the actor’s reputation as one of Hollywood’s longest-standing bachelors was not lost on her friend. “I have to admit, that caused some motherly panic,” Kim said in her speech. “Is she going to get hurt? He isn’t exactly Mr. Commitment, I thought.”
    Those fears were quickly dispelled. “You could see in the way he held himself, treated her and others, and enjoyed life that his heart was big and he loved her with all of it,” she said.
    The effect Clooney, 53, had on Alamuddin was evident: She quit smoking (“cold turkey!”), and uncharacteristically, Kim joked, “ever since she met George, she has been on time.”
    But most of all, she said, “I had never seen her smile like that. She has had that smile now for almost a year straight.”
    The couple’s love story, said Kim, “is nothing short of a fairy tale.”

    At the Conservative party conference currently being held, there is talk of putting William Hague’s name forward for the Nobel Peace prize for his work on sexual violence in conflict. If this goes anywhere will Hague want to be jointly recognized with Angelina? ??
    An intriguing thought.

  • nice

  • LaLa

    The Stern interview with Melissa Ethridge, just proves what most have all been saying…. Pitt and Jolie have no friends! She had none when they got together and he alienated ALL that he had when married to Anuston. Also, her double mastectomy was NOT necessary or, life threatening. The cancer gene has to be turned on, and just because your BRAC is positive, it does not mean you will be diagnosed with cancer. Thanks for telling it like it IS, Melissa!!!




    TAKE THIS DOWN JARED it is just hard to look at..nasty,nasty,old,stinky, liar

  • chunky pipe


    pussycat, yeah, forgot your time…nice seeing you always too.


    Brad your tired because you smoke the cigs and weed. You are 51 soon. You are supposed to be a grandpa! Just send the kids home with the nannys and go take a na, ya goofball…We all know what it feels like to be rich..go away, stay private..please..but no you are a fame ho wanna be God or something.

  • what i’m sayin’

    This is a cut and paste job of old interviews, must be frustrating for Brad to see old quotes put up as new. I would be furious.

  • EWW hE iS uGlY

    Put the pipe down Brad…You and your wifes karma is

  • Alana

    @LaLa: She had an 87% chance of it being “turned on”. If you had a bomb strapped to your chest with an 87% chance of it going off, wouldn’t YOU want it taken off? Angie made the decision that was right for her and her family. Everyone should have the information to make their own choices.

    # 5 Etheridge attack on Angie @ 10/01/2014 at 1:51 pm
    ROTFL. Notice how she said she hasn’t spoken to Brad since he’s been with Angie? Well, that’s interesting because for YEARS she said she hadn’t spoken to Brad since 2002 or 2003 and doesn’t know why they stopped hanging out. Now all of a sudden it’s just since he and Angie got together. Liar, liar pants on fire. LMAO that Robin said Brad had cut a lot of people out of his life since then and Howard said something like “that happens” and quickly talked over her and moved on to something else. Now that he’s BFFs with Ticky he’s suddenly watching what he says? How pathetic.
    PS – ME’s not the only person to say getting a double mastectomy on healthy tissue is the “fearful” thing to do. I think letting yourself get cancer when you can prevent is stupid and narrow-minded. Six of one, half dozen of the other.

  • Passing Through

    # 8 Felinelilly @ 10/01/2014 at 1:59 pm
    The last quote is from 2008 or 2009. Psychologies is a British magazine and the UK mags are horrendous about mixing really old quotes with new quotes and pretending everything is from a recent interview.

  • Rose
  • bite me

    Melissa made her medical choice and Angie made hers. Maybe Melissa should spend more time trying to form a co-parent relationship with her ex TAMMY, who by the way supported her when she was dealing with breast cancer, instead of worrying about why BRAD PITT hasn’t talked to her ass in the last 10 years.

  • basher

    I still worry that Ang isn’t changing her diet enough though.And her uncle died of skin cancer IIRC. Her decision was HER DECISION just like her essay was titled “MY MEDICAL CHOICE”. Everyone doesn’t react the same way. IMO waiting to see what will happen is stupid when you are talking about tissue that is non-essential.

    The Wrap’s 2014 Innovators List: 11 Thought Leaders Who Are Changing Hollywood
    MEDIA | By Wrap Staff on October 1, 2014 @ 6:49 am

    For our second annual list, TheWrap picks the most dynamic, risk-taking, out-of-the-box figures remaking our industry
    YouTube networks, Google Glass films and marketing movies using the secret sharing app, Whisper. Welcome to the new Hollywood.
    In our second annual Innovators List, TheWrap identifies the change agents who are thinking differently about the creation and distribution of entertainment. We zeroed in on how some of the industry’s biggest stars are rewriting the rules of film and television production.
    Enjoy the list, watch the video inteviews… and be sure to catch our Innovators Panel at The Grill on October 7 in Beverly Hills.

    Angelina Jolie, Actress-Director-Philanthropist
    The latest phase of Angelina Jolie‘s ongoing metamorphosis may be her most impressive yet: In addition to being a globe-trotting activist, busy mother of six young kids, Oscar-winning actress and perpetual tabloid magnet, the 39-year-old is also the filmmaker behind one of the most highly anticipated films of the season.
    Early glimpses of “Unbroken,” an historical drama based on the life of war hero and Olympian Louis Zamperini, look equal parts gorgeous and harrowing, with a supreme lead performance out of soon-to-be breakout actor Jack O’Connell. Jolie will be credited for getting the best possible work out of the young Brit, and it’s likely that she’ll get an equally strong performance out of her now-husband, Brad Pitt, in her next directorial effort, “By the Sea.”
    An industry unto herself, Jolie is blazing a trail for female talent while reaching deeper for her artistic voice, a seemingly impossible task under the constant spotlight that shines down on her. – Jordan Zakarin

    Melissa wants her friendship recognized by media so she can get her career back on track. I am not confused about her motives, but to whine about it she is pathetic.

  • Jane

    To LaLa

    Who are YOU to decide if Angelina’s double mastectomy was necessary and life threatening. Angelina made a decision that she believed was best for both her AND her children. Since you don’t have access to her medical records you KNOW NOTHING. And who cares what Melissa Etheridge has to say on the subject; it is not her body.

  • chunky pipe

  • LaLa

    @Jane: #37

    Obviously your reading comprehension is lacking. Where in my comment did I say “I knew” what was best for Jolie? I simply stated some facts about breast cancer and the BRAC test.

  • GQ

    GQ interview posted on JPS brad talks about the kids and Angie. He talks about the love letters too. It’s so romantic. I wonder why the media did not post the lovely things he said about the kids and him and Angie meeting up. If anyone has the interview please post.

  • They Called Her Ubangi Lips

    …..melissa is right. instead of chopping a very important hormone regulator off your body out of irrational fear over a chance you will get cancer, ‘courageous to me means, “Ok i have this gene but I’m going to live my life, I’m going to clean up.” that is angleiron’s problem, she is emotionally incapable of living clean.

  • just a thought

    @LaLa: Actually you did not state the facts. You repeated by Melissa E said. I did not see a PHD after her name. BTW I’m sure a lot offriends have left Melissa E since she seems like a mean spirited person to each woman she dumps. I wonder how long this next one will last.

    Cancer sufferer dies after delaying preventative surgery

    May 2, 2014

    A Queensland woman who helped bring attention to hereditary cancer has died after losing her battle with ovarian cancer.

    Elisha Neave was only 30 years old when she decided to delay elective surgery after she found out she carried the BRCA2 gene mutation, which brings a high risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer.

    Her two older sisters Veronica and Christine, who also tested positive with the so-called cancer gene, opted to undergo hysterectomies and double mastectomies.

    However, Ms Neave chose to delay the operation in the hope she could have more children with husband Brendan Hopp and give her now 11-year-old son some siblings.

    Their decision-making journey was documented in a 2009 film titled Pieces of Me, which was shot by their brother Denny who was the first member of the family not carrying the gene.

    Four years after the test, she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of ovarian cancer.

    She died on Wednesday in a Gold Coast hospital aged 36.

    Her family broke the news on a Facebook page set up to fund-raise for her treatment.

    “Surrounded by the love of her closest friends and family and after the bravest of fights our little girl slipped away peacefully at 12.30 last night with Dads tunes on the radio amidst the laughter and tears that comes with a typical Neave gathering”.

    Despite a year of chemotherapy, Ms Neave was told in February 2013 that she had until Christmas to live.

    “As far as I knew, I was in the clear and my next doctor’s appointment would be a check-up where he said, ‘Everything is going great, enjoy your life!’ ” Ms Neave told Fairfax Media at the time.

    Like Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, who last year had both her breasts removed and plans to remove her ovaries after testing positive for the BRCA gene, Ms Neave was determined to raise more awareness about hereditary cancer by sharing her experience.

    “It’s about firstly creating more awareness about the BRCA 2 Gene, and awareness about being vigilant and early detection in young women so hopefully young people never end up where I did,” she wrote on Facebook in April.

    “Why am I doing this? Because I will stop at nothing to fight for my life, for my son, he deserves that. Why do I have to leave the country and my family for treatment? Because Australia does not offer these cancer treatments. And do not make their drugs available to me.”

    Ms Neave had previously received invasive treatment in Germany was scheduled to travel to China in April for urgent treatment.

    The trip was cancelled after she suffered complications from a kidney operation, contracted two infections and had liver failure, her family said on Facebook.

    Ms Neave’s funeral will be held on Monday at The Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Ashmore.

    Her family said that she requested that “no daggy or somber clothes or sentiments rather she wanted colour, happy, fun and glam for her celebration of her life”.

    They also asked that in place of flowers, donations be directed to the Elisha Neave Health Fund for her son.
