Brad Pitt is dropping hints that he wants to marry his partner and mother of his children, Angelina Jolie. I find this hard to believe, considering that they’ve been together this long without that piece of paper… In addition to that, they have both said publicly that they won’t officially tie the knot until everyone can marry, regardless of their sexuality.
Brad admitted that the couple’s six children are putting the pressure on them to get married. He said, “The kids ask about marriage. It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at.”
Interesting. Do you think they will eventually cave in and do the deed? Or perhaps a few more children down the line? They have been together since 2005, when he split from Jennifer Aniston. Angelina has also been married, twice, to Johnny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.
With six kids to run after, you’d have to imagine that their lives are hectic, but the happy couple still make time to make things work. He said, “We tell the kids, ‘Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.’ They go, ‘Eww, gross!’ But we demand it.”
He went on to say, “Angie and I do everything we can to carve out some semblance of normalcy for them, to recreate the kinds of moments that were special for us. It’s not unusual for the kids to be covered in paint. We have mud fights. It’s chaos from morning until the lights go out. We’re hunted. Our kids have to live behind a gate. Outside, there are people with cameras. But I’ll take the trade-off.”
And that’s why we can appreciate talented actors like Brad Pitt. He knows he’s famous enough to have people following them around, but he doesn’t seem bothered by the life that it affords them.
