Super Dad Brad Pitt Admits: 'I've Made Mistakes With My Kids!' He's Just Like Us!

Thu, May 26, 2011 10:25am EDT by 9 Comments

He’s Hollywood’s most high profile daddy with a bumper brood of SIX kids with Angelina Jolie — but Brad Pitt insists he’s far from the perfect parent.

The actor admits fatherhood’s hard and he often screws up.  Surely not Brad?!

“It’s not (like I’m) a horrible parent,” Brad Pitt insists. “But I’ve certainly made mistakes and had to make up for it.”

The 47-year-old Hollywood heartthrob plays an abusive father in new movie The Tree of Life, and he admits he had to work extra hard leaving his character at work when he wrapped filming and returned home to his family. He didn’t want any of the bad dad’s nasty character traits to rub off on Maddox, 9, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, almost 5, and 2-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Brad tells, “I certainly don’t raise my kids that same way. I’m painfully aware that my actions leave a double mark on them in these formidable years, so I make sure I don’t bring my crap home.”

Wow… Brad sounds like a regular dad. It’s reassuring to know Hollywood stars had to deal with the same issues as the rest of us!
