Brad Pitt: I Care About My Children 'More Than I Care About Myself'

The newlywed actor opens up about fatherhood.

“I feel like the richest man alive since I've become a father," he told Psychologies for its November issue of positive living bible. "I worry about them all the time. That's the emotional bond and responsibility that sweeps over you when you have a family to look after. You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family."

Pitt talked more with the magazine about why he cherishes his family so dearly.

“You learn to value the basic beauty of family, of watching your children grow and evolve," he said. "It's the most beautiful thing you can experience. Being a father has changed me on so many levels and on so many levels and made me more generous and alive."

He continued, "I see my children as an essential part of my life, and it means so much to be able to educate them and help them make their way in the world as they grow up.”
