The super couple have said they love raising their six kids outside of Hollywood. So why did the normally private family sell the treasured baby pictures of twins Vivienne and Knox?!

Brad Pitt spoke with NPR while doing press for his recent baseball flick Moneyball, and gave us some insight into living life with the stalkarazzi and how it affected his decision to sell such private family moments! Click to read what he said!

“I know some of these guys who are in that ‘stalkerazzi’ world, and you really have to separate them from the paparazzi in our industry. That’s another breed. They have their heroes who got the big, scandalous shot, which just promotes more of that, It’s a very strange thing to be selling photos of something that’s very intimate and personal. And those of which you want to protect. We have to plan an escape every day just to get out of the house — kind of a Mission Impossible with decoys, and that’s the life we live in, and that’s the one we asked for. But we knew there was a bounty on our head … and we know the lengths they go to to get that shot. So we figured, ‘Let’s cut it off in the beginning,’ and instead of that money going to people I do not respect, we would make some good out of it.”

Brad and Angelina took the reported 14 million they received from People for the photos and put the bucks into their charitable foundation.

It looks like the power couple really did put some thought into the selling of those photos, and we think that biting the bullet in order to fund the greater good of helping others was the best decision. You go Brangelina!
