Brad Pitt may be a movie star who’s married to Angelina Jolie, parenting six kids, traveling the world and doing charity work, but he’s also a normal dad who admits that he makes parenting mistakes.
Haven’t all of us parents?!
Like all good dads, Pitt wants his kids to develop into their own people. “I want to keep them free to explore that innocence as long as possible and find out what’s really interesting to them,” he told the magazine. “I just don’t want to encumber them in any way.”
Pitt wants what’s best for his kids. “Listen, I just want them to follow their bliss. Whatever makes them happy,” he said.
He’s been talking parenting regularly lately. Pitt recently discussed daddy duty at Cannes, saying that he always knew he wanted to have lots of children. “I had a friend who had a big family when I was a kid,” he shared. “I just loved the chaos around the breakfast table and the fighting and the ribbing, and the mom making pancakes for everyone or the dad making pancakes.”
