Brad Pitt admits his attitude to his career changed
The 48-year-old actor - who raises six children, Maddox, nine, Pax, six, Zahara, five, Shiloh, five, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with his long-term partner Angelina Jolie - says his attitude to his work was altered by his kids because he wants to make films they can be "proud" of.
He said: "The biggest change for me was being a dad. That changes everything.
"I`m aware of the impermanence, now that I`ve got a few (movies) left - and I want to do stories where I can make a difference. I want them to be proud of their dad in the end."
The `Tree of Life` star is acutely aware of the effect his and 36-year-old Angelina`s high-profile careers could have on their brood and as well as not telling their kids what they do for jobs he also doesn`t bring home any frustrations from work.
In an interview with the Daily Telegraph newspaper, he said: "It`s so obvious for me that, when I come home, my kids are so aware of everything that`s going on. It`s quite important to me not to put my frustrations on them. I want them to be free, not encumbered with my junk."
