Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie famously met and fell in love on the set of 2005's Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Pitt has revealed that the two are looking to re-unite on screen.
He sat down with NPR as part of his press for new movie The Tree of Life at the Cannes Film Festival, and talked about his plans for another movie with partner Angelina.
- "We're not ones to repeat ourselves, but we'd like to, because right now, we're hopscotching with films so one can be with the kids and one's free to work. And why aren't we doing them together? Why aren't we doing everything together?"
Brad and Angie have talked about how they always travel as a family for films, and that one can not be working while the other is so that the kids have at least one full-time parent. Brad says that being a papa has made him change the movies he picks.
- "I'm painfully aware that my kids are going to see these [movies] when they're older, and I want them to understand something about their dad, and I want them to be proud of their dad."
Indeed, Pitt and Jolie have both done more kid-friendly films since becoming parents. He lent his voice to 2010's kids' animated movie Megamind. Angie is in Cannes promoting Kung Fu Panda 2. Their six children are, of course, with them at the fest.
Brad also talked about what made him want to have so many kids in the first place, and reveals what his specialty is at home. See what he said after the jump!
Pitt revealed that a childhood friend's family made him want to have several children.
- "I had a friend who had a big family when I was a kid. 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. And I just decided then if I was ever going to do it â€” this left some indelible mark on me â€” if I was ever going to do it, that's the way I was going to do it."
Those memories influenced what is now one of Pitt's favorite daddy duties.
- "Breakfast is pretty much my specialty. And barbecue."
