Brad Pitt Covers ‘Details'; Doesn’t Suck At Fatherhood

Brad Pitt Covers 'Details'; Doesn't Suck At Fatherhood

Brad Pitt is featured on the cover of the latest issue of “Details” magazine and inside he says that he has disovered that he doesn’t suck at being a father.

He told the magazine, “I’ve discovered I don’t suck at being a dad.”

With regard to his family life being out in the public eye, he said, “My soul was stolen by the camera so long ago, I don’t have to think about it anymore. One definition of freedom is the ability to follow your bliss without being watched, recorded scrutinized.”

He said, “I grew up in the Ozarks-something resembling Mark Twain country. The woods, rivers, bluffs, lakes and caves have all left an indelible mark on me. And I’m quite reverential when it comes to a tree. On my forearm, I have tattooed 94.9m – the height of the largest sequoia.”

He told the magazine that he always tries to “carve out time for a solo ride in every country I travel to, from the Highlands of Scotland to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco to the belly of India. I haven’t even come close to fulfilling my list – yet. But in the traffic of L.A. with a helmut on, I’m just another a**hole on the rode.”

He added of his rocky start on bikes: “I first rode at age 7 on my cousin’s Honda Mini Trail 50. I tried to jump it and ran it into my grandmother’s car. He was severely pissed off. My first bike was a Kawi 150 enduro. I won it at age 12 in a contest for selling the most pecan log rolls door to door after school. I crashed it four weeks later.”

Brad Pitt Covers ‘Psychologies'; Talks Fatherhood

Brad Pitt Covers 'Psychologies'; Talks Fatherhood

Brad Pitt is featured on the cover of the November issue of a U.K. magazine called “Psychologies”. He’s keeping busy promoting his new movie “Fury” and talked to the magazine about feeling rich due to becoming a father.

It’s an especially good time to be Brad Pitt. The newlywed, 50, opens up about his children with wife Angelina Jolie in the November issue of the U.K.’s Psychologies magazine. Regarding what he’s learned from raising Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6, proud papa Pitt, 50, says, “You learn to value the basic beauty of family, of watching your children grow and evolve. It’s the most beautiful thing you can experience.”

“I feel like the richest man alive since I’ve become a father,” Pitt adds.

How else has the Fury star’s life changed since becoming a parent? “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,” the twice-wed actor explains. “I love being a father and all the responsibilities that entails.”

As one might imagine, Pitt is a protective parent. “I worry about them all the time,” he says of his kids. “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.”

I like his insight into his family life. I’m sure that becoming a father and a husband changed Brad for the better and it’s quite obvious that he’s totally into being a good dad to his and Angelina’s six children.

Angelina Jolie Bought A $3 Million Watch For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie Bought A $3 Million Watch For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got married on August 23rd and I was kind of curious as to what kind of gifts they gave each other to celebrate the occasion. Now, we’ve learned that Angie spent a whopping $3 million on a watch for her husband. Fancy!

He has wealth and possessions beyond his wildest dreams. But that did not stop Angelina Jolie giving Brad Pitt a rare watch said to be worth more than $3 million as a wedding gift. The saucy Maleficent actress bought her man a much coveted 1952 Patek Philippe platinum chronometer, a legendary design by one of the most respected of all Swiss watchmakers.

Angelina’s romantic gesture became known after she had a friend take it to shop to have it inscribed – ‘To Roly from Nessa.’ The couple play these characters in drama By The Sea, a movie they are currently filming in Malta, and which the actress is also directing.

George Farrugia who runs a jewellery shop on the neighbouring island of Gozo, told The Mirror: ‘I did inscribe the watch, it was for Brad and it was a rare one. Oh yes, it was very valuable.’

However the huge value of the watch did not faze the experienced 57-year-old.

He said: ‘I wasn’t nervous about the inscription because I knew I could do the work perfectly.’

Hopefully the news of what he gave her will leak next. What do you think of her gift to Brad?

Brad Pitt Covers ‘GQ UK'; Talks Marriage, George Clooney & Shia LaBeouf

Brad Pitt Covers 'GQ UK'; Talks Marriage, George Clooney & Shia LaBeouf

Brad Pitt is featured on the cover of the November issue of British “GQ” and inside, he talks about his marriage to Angelina Jolie, his thoughts on George Clooney and troubled actor Shia LaBeouf.

On the topic of marriage, he said, “I wouldn’t say [marriage is] just a title. There’s more to it than that.”

George Clooney recently called Brad “unreachable”. To that, Brad said, “Well, you know, George is extremely accessible. He’s one of our best representatives. He’s funny as sh*t. He’s a joy to be around. I guess maybe I’m more of a miserable bastard. I’m a bit of a loner you know? I’m more quiet by nature. And coming from, you know, hillbilly country, I’m probably more reserved.”

On the topic of Shia LaBeouf, Brad revealed, “Oh, I love this boy. He’s one of the best actors I’ve ever seen. He’s full-on commitment, man. He’s living it like no one else, let me tell you. I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of great actors. He’s one of the best I’ve seen.”

On slowing down his acting career, he said, “I’ve been slowing down for a while now. And slowly transitioning to other things. And, truthfully, I do want to spend more time with my kids before they’re grown up and gone.”

With regard to not being on Twitter, he said, “Listen, I see a benefit in it. You could, you know, combat the misconceptions of the misquotes immediately. And if I’d have had that in my younger days, I’d have used it… because I felt quite used, and completely misunderstood, and misread, and not given the benefit of the doubt. You know, I felt that a lot in my first years. I would have brought some logic to the table, and brought it immediately. But now, at this point, I don’t want to bother with it.”

Lastly, he talked about whether or not he’s happy. He added, “I’ve always believed happiness is overrated, you know? It’s those difficult times that inform the next wonderful time, and it’s a series of trade-offs, of events, of wins and losses.”
