Doting dad Brad Pitt took his eldest sons – Maddox, 9, and Pax, 7 this month – to the premiere of his new movie Megamind 3D in New York City on Wednesday (November 3).
I’m sneaking in the boys tonight,” the father-of-six told People last night. “I think they will like it, but they are tough critics. Will Ferrell is very popular in our house, so the boys will get a kick out of that. Hopefully they will think Dad’s really cool and better than Spider-Man.”
Meanwhile back in Budapest with mom Angelina Jolie – along with siblings Shiloh, 4, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 2 – Zahara, 5, was seen giving the family bulldog a bone in the backyard.
So how’s the family doing back in Hungary? The proud papa says “everything is great” and the twins are “talking a lot and singing.”
And what about the new role in Megamind in which he voices Metro Man, the superhero of the film?
Spider-Man is big in our family,” the 46-year-old hunk says. “The kids think he’s the coolest. If there was one superhero they would want me to play, that would be the one. I’d score big with them.” He says he took the role of Metro Man “for my kids. They liked the story, and I liked it. Every role we choose now, we choose it for the kids,” he says. “Will the kids like it? Will they like it when they are young adults? Or is this a good location for the family? That’s it.”
Asked if he has any super powers of his own, he told Us, “Yeah. I’m a father of six! I mean, I’m a dad and with that comes some super powers. I just thought it would be kinda cool to be in this movie.”
What are their Thanksgiving plans?
“I’m not really sure where we’ll be for it, but yeah, it’ll be overseas,” he tells Extra. “We’ll whip up a turkey somewhere.”
