WATCH TWO CLIPS: Pitt tells Oprah he's forgetful, while "Angie's militant" about family organization
With a brood of six children ranging in age from four months to seven years, Brad Pitt says life requires careful planning.
The star of the soon-to-be-released The Curious Case of Benjamin Button tells Oprah Winfrey, in an interview on her show set to air Nov. 19, that quick outings are things of the past.
“We don’t go to the mall,” says Pitt, 44, adding that preparing for a car trip is an adventure unto itself.
“It’s like a half-an-hour just to get everyone buckled in and make sure they’ve got their snacks, and Z.Z. [Zahara, 3] has got a blanket and Shiloh’s got her silky,” he says.
“Angie‘s militant about it. She’s right on top of it. Thank God, because I’m always forgetting something.”
He also reveals 2½-year-old daughter Shiloh’s latest quirk.
“She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it’s a Peter Pan thing,” he says. “So we’ve got to call her John. ‘Shi, do you want …’ – ‘John. I’m John.’ And then I’ll say, ‘John, would you like some orange juice?’ And she goes, ‘No!’ So, you know, it’s just that kind of stuff that’s cute to parents, and it’s probably really obnoxious to other people.”
