Brad Pitt did an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, which aired this morning. I’ve included the videos at the end of the post – the first video seems to be the entire one that aired, and then the second one is just a minute-long outtake of Brad discussing Tree of Life. Brad looks really, really good here. Whatever he’s been doing lately – man-made or natural – is working for me. Plus, the man knows he looks great in shades of blue, and he’s been working that to his advantage lately, like he did in his photo shoot with The Hollywood Reporter. Much like his THR interview, Brad notably talks about how he and Angelina are TOTALLY going to marry.
“We’re getting a lot of pressure from the kids,” Pitt, 48, says. “It means something to them.”
Pitt admits he hasn’t “been very good” at explaining why he and Jolie have put marriage on hold since first becoming a couple in 2005. “We will someday. We will,” Pitt promises. “That’s a great idea.”
When his brood of six — Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and Knox and Vivienne, 3 — asked him to “get mommy a ring,” Pitt vowed: “Okay, I will! I will.”
Do you think all of this marriage talk is just part of Brad’s Oscar campaign? I think it’s partly about the campaign, sure. But I also think that Angelina wants to get married, and she has wanted it for a while now, and Brad is slowly coming around. I don’t buy that the kids are like “buy mommy a ring!” unless Angelina has been prodding them, “Go tell Daddy that!”
