Transcript for Brad Pitt on Best Part of Having Children
You play a suave hitman, who is very cerebral, is good at his job and quotes thomas jefferson. I'm the fixer. I clean up the problems. I take a few shots at jefferson, which was difficult for me. I'm a jeffersonian to the core. Mickey, what's the problem? Mickey is expensive. Not at the moment. Can you get him for 10? 15. I think in this economy, 15 for 2 days' work, is pretty good to mickey. The whole movie is set on the backdrop of the economic breakdown. It's not subtle, the parallels that the film makes between the mob world and the world at large. That wasn't accidental. He poses it against the financial crisis, the bank bailout and the '08 election. And it makes for a provocative material. So, you have a birthday coming up. H. In a month.

And I think becoming a father, you become -- everything is time allocation for me, too. Making sure I spend the time wisely on the things that are important to me. And spending the time with the family. Best part about it? Mornings, just getting up. If you call one place home, is it new orleans? We call them base camps, basically. Really? Yeah. How many do you have? We have a base camp in l.A., because a lot of work out of there. And we're trying to set up a european base camp, for the kids to have a little -- they get more sense of normalcy there. We're not as hounded in certain places there. Is that true? We heard a lot. Halle berry maintains in france. France has a rule about photographing kids. And I think they're more sensitive to it since the diana incident. For the kids, it's a better sense of normalcy. Of all the base camps, that's the one where you feel they get the best shot at a normal life. Yeah. A real kid life. We think so. We think so.
