He's a box-office superstar. An A-list habitué. And, now, an Oscar-winning producer.
But of the many hats he wears, this role comes naturally and swiftly to Brad Pitt: fatherhood.
The actor, 50, opens up to Details magazine about being a parent to his and wife Angelina Jolie's six children. And, in characteristically modest fashion, Pitt says he ain't too shabby at it.
"I've discovered I don't suck at being a dad," he tells the magazine in its latest issue, out Oct. 28.
Of course, family was an intrinsic part of the Pitt-Jolie nuptials in France on Aug. 23, which saw the beaming bride, 39, wear a dress festooned with adorable artwork created by their children: Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and 6-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. (All six also helped usher their mom down the aisle, and Pax even baked the cake!)
No doubt, family has also proved to be a safe haven for the multitasking star, away from the scrutiny of public life and the incessantly prying eyes of the paparazzi – something Pitt knows all too well.
"My soul was stolen by the camera so long ago, I don't have to think about it anymore," he tells Details of being the target of shutterbugs. "One definition of freedom is the ability to follow your bliss without being watched, recorded, scrutinized."
