Brad on Tots: 'We Haven't Found Any Reason to Stop Yet'
Oscar nominee Brad Pitt confronted the issues of mortality in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" -- and the dad admitted it made him think about the important things in his life, like his longtime partner Angelina Jolie and their six children.
"I walked away realizing that time is short," Pitt confessed to London's Daily Telegraph. "I don't know if I have a day or 10 days or 10 years or 40 years...so I have to make sure I surround myself with the people who are most important to me. Angelina and I are together because we can enhance each other. I don't want to waste any time because I'm with company I really, really love."
Brad and Angie already have a brood of six -- Maddox, 7, Pax, 5, Zahara, 3, Shiloh, 2, and Knox and Vivienne, 6 months -- and Hollywood's First couple are determined to have more!
"We haven't found any reason to stop yet," he said, laughing. "It's chaos at times, but there's such joy in the house. I look and there's our boy from Vietnam and our daughter from Ethiopia, and our girl was born in Namibia, and our son is from Cambodia, and they're brothers and sisters, man. They're brothers and sisters and it's a sight for elation."
He added, "We have the capability to give a child a home, and let me tell you it's selfish, too, because the reward has been extraordinary."
