Angelina Jolie was recently made an Honorary Dame Commander by Queen Elizabeth and Brad Pitt couldn’t more pleased at his wife’s honor, but that hasn’t really changed how things work on the home front.
“It was just a pleasure and certainly one for the books,” the proud husband told Us Weekly at the London premiere of Fury on Sunday, October 19. “[It was] a wonderful afternoon for our family, a great honor for Angie and something we won’t forget,” he added at the event which closed the 58th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express, at the Odeon Leicester Square.
Pitt, Jolie, and their brood of six kids came face-to-face with Queen Elizabeth II in room 1844 of the monarch’s London residence on Friday, Oct. 10. Jolie received the award in honor of her humanitarian work, in particular her efforts to combat sexual violence in war-torn regions around the world.
“To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to,” Jolie said previously. “Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.”
So now that Jolie’s an Honorary Dame, does this mean she’s the boss at home? “Aaah, no,” Pitt told Us, laughing. “We have our own pecking order at home!”
Congratulations to Angelina on the honor!

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 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.
