When choosing films, Brad Pitt says that he now takes his 6 children, with partner Angelina Jolie, into consideration.

Currently in France at the highly acclaimed Cannes Film Festival promoting his surrealist film, “The Tree of Life,” the actor told reporters on Monday: “I think of everything I do now that my kids are going to see when they grow up and how are they going to feel. But they know me as a dad and I hope they’ll just think of me as a pretty damn good actor.”

In “The Tree of Life,” Pitt plays an overbearing father to Jack O’Brien, played by Sean Penn. Brad also disclosed that in order to play his role in the film, he drew from his own life experiences.

“I got brought up being told things were God’s way, and when things didn’t work out it was called God’s plan. I’ve got my issues with it. Don’t get me started. I found it very stifling,” he said.

“The Tree of Life,” directed and written by Terrence Malick, is set to get a limited release in the US and will hit screens on May 27th.
