Brad stars alongside Sean Penn in Terrence Malick’s dramatic film ‘Tree of Life’ and it was shockingly booed when it was screened in front of critics in the south of France … do you feel sorry for Brad?

Poor Brad Pitt! The dad-of-six took his entire brood to the Cannes Film Festival for the May 16 debut screening of his film The Tree of Life. But when the film ended, critics booed … yikes!

The film’s director Terrence Malick, most famous for his 1998 film The Thin Red Line, was no where to be found when the credits rolled but Brad did try and defend the film.

“I don’t know why it’s accepted that people who make things in our business are then expected to sell them, and I don’t think that computes with him,” Pitt said. “He wants to focus on the making of it, not the real estate, selling the real estate. It is an odd thing for an artist to start something and then be salesman.”

Brad plays an intense and somewhat abusive father-of-three. The eldest son grows up and reflects on his life with Brad as a father and is played by Sean Penn.
