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.”
