In 2006, Brad Pitt told Esquire Magazine that he and Angelina Jolie had no intention of getting married until “everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able.” Five years later, though, the life partners are looking at making it official.
(Though we’re not sure you can get more official than six kids together.)
“The kids ask about marriage,” he tells USA in an interview promoting “Tree of Life,” his latest film. “It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at.”
He describes his family as “hunted” by photographers, admitting that the one thing he regrets not being able to provide them with is freedom from the media. “Angie and I do everything we can to carve out some semblance of normalcy
for them, to re-create the kinds of moments that were special for us.
It’s not unusual for the kids to be covered in paint. We have mud
fights. It’s chaos from morning until the lights go out, and sometimes
after that,” he says.
Amidst the madness, he and Jolie make sure to get their alone time in. “There are no secrets at our house,” he says — referring to their Los Angeles ‘home base,’ their French estate, or the many film locations that serve as homes in their nomadic lifestyle. “We tell the kids, ‘Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.’ They go, ‘Eww, gross!’ But we demand it.”
