Brad Pitt – “I beat my kids regularly” (he meant that as a joke)

The actor jokes about his most recent film role, and appears at Cannes Film Festival with Angelina Jolie by his side

Celebrity dad-of-six Brad Pitt made a bad joke at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday whilst he was promoting his new film, The Tree Of Life.


Seen with his glamorous other half Angelina Jolie, the pair trod the red carpet before Brad answered questions about his latest role in his film, where he plays a strict dad. Brad admitted he was hesitant to take on the role at first, as he worried what his six children would think.
