Brad says he filmed Megamind “for my babies,” when he turned up with Maddox and Pax at the animated film’s Nov. 3 premiere!
Brad Pitt is supposed to be in Budapest, but it looks like he traveled a long way to attend the New York premiere of his new movie Megamind last night (Nov. 3)! And while he posed for photos on the blue carpet alone, his sons with Angelina Jolie, Maddox, 9, and Pax, almost 7, snuck through the back door into the AMC Lincoln Square theater! “At the end of the day, it’s my kids,” he tells UsMagazine.com when asked why he signed on for the animated flick. “I did it for my babies … I’m sneaking the boys in there now!” It seems like he wanted to share Megamind with people who would love it the most — his kids!
Brad, 46, voices the character Metro Man, a superhero who also wants to sing, in the animated flick, which is set to hit theaters on Friday! When asked if he had any awesome super powers of his own, Brad says, “Yeah. I’m a father of six! I mean, I’m a dad and with that comes some super powers. I just thought it would be kinda cool to be in this movie.” The film also stars Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill!
Although Metro Man wants to be a singer in the movie, Brad says he should not and does not show off his vocal chops for his family! “Oh no! I want them to be influenced by a proper singer,” he tells Extra. “That’s one talent I do not have.”
The jet-setting Jolie-Pitt clan, who celebrated Halloween in Hungary — “I was sort of a bunny,” Brad says — plan on cooking up a Thanksgiving feast no matter where they are at the end of November. “I’m not really sure where we’ll be for it, but yeah, it’ll be overseas. We’ll whip up a turkey somewhere,” Brad laughs. “We are like a military mobile unit.”
We hope Maddox and Pax enjoyed watching their dad voice an animated superhero! We’re sure they had a great time!
