I f-cking love this interview. And this interview must have also been conducted by the director for the Sprite commercial in Germany who thought this ad would be appropriate for television.
Brad Pitt sat down with a reporter from BILD for an interview to promote Inglourious Basterds (thanks R!). I’m telling you…foreign journalists get away with anything! If it was anyone in North America, they’d be tossed out on their ass immediately, and banned from covering Brad for life.
This dude however actually gets to ask Brad about when he and Angelina find time to MAKE LOVE.
These are the questions all of us want to ask on the press circuit. But we don’t have the balls. And this f-cker just went for it.
The entire interview can be accessed here but these are the best parts:
BILD: Who is the real Brad Pitt?
Brad Pitt: He is sitting right in front of you. There’s nothing else.
BILD: Are you still a big kid?
Brad Pitt: “No I’m not a kid anymore – I have six children.” Maddox (7), Pax (5), Zahara (4), Shiloh (3), and the twins Vivien & Knox (1).
BILD: Have you found happiness in life?
Brad Pitt (nodding): Hm – yes. I am on the path I want to be on.”
BILD: Do you believe in God?
Brad Pitt (smiling): “No, no, no!”
BILD: Is your soul spiritual?
Brad Pitt: “No, no, no! I’m probably 20 per cent atheist and 80 per cent agnostic. I don’t think anyone really knows. You’ll either find out or not when you get there, until then there’s no point thinking about it.
BILD: Are you scared of ageing?
Brad Pitt (smirking): The grey hairs on his beard glisten: “No I like it. I think it’s good.”
BILD: What is your typical day as a dad?
Brad Pitt: “I get going early, make breakfast, get the kids dressed, brush their teeth and take them to school. Angelina is working at the moment. We take turns.”
BILD: Angelina told me once about your giant bed where all eight of you snuggle up?
Brad Pitt: “Yes we have a 3 metre wide bed, but even that isn’t big enough. They all come crawling in in the morning. It’s just about surviving! We all have sleep deprivation."
BILD: Do you find the time to make love?
Brad Pitt (looks puzzled): What? (Lainey: this KILLS me. That he noticed he was “puzzled” and just get going anyway!)
BILD: Is it sometimes just the two of you?
Brad Pitt: “Yes we make time for ourselves. It’s very important for every relationship.”
BILD: How? Do you fly off somewhere?
Brad Pitt: “That’s a trade secret!”
BILD: Your answers are very short and quick.
Brad Pitt (beaming): “Ha! I’m a father of six. You have to be quick and focused.”
BILD: What car do you drive?
Brad Pitt: I’m not a car person. I like motorbikes.”
BILD: You are driving from Berlinto Prague?
Brad Pitt: “Yes for fun! 2 ½ hours just straight on the whole way.“
BILD: How many motorbikes do you have?
Brad Pitt: “Sorry, but I’ve got a problem with that one”. He smiles sheepishly.
BILD: Why? Too many?
Brad Pitt: “Yeah! To be honest I don’t know how many I have.“
BILD: Has money changed you?
Brad Pitt: “It makes everything easier, but money can also be a burden.“
BILD: Do your rings have a story?
Brad Pitt: “No I just like them.“
BILD: And your watch?
Brad Pitt (checks): “Yes, a Rolex.“
BILD: Your necklace?
Brad Pitt: “From my girl.“
BILD: What is your most important possession?
Brad Pitt: “My family - and yes a couple of my motorbikes.“
