Brad Pitt rules out direction

October 1st, 2011

Brad Pitt won't direct films as it would drive his family "crazy".

The 47-year-old actor - who raises children Maddox, 10, seven-year-old Pax, six-year-old Zahara, Shiloh, five, and twins Vivienne and Knox, three with partner Angelina Jolie - insists he has no "aspirations" to move behind the camera because it would take him away from home for so long.

He said: "I have no aspirations for directing. It would drive me crazy and my family crazy, I'd never see them. It would take me three years to do it. I like what I do now.

"I love cinema and I'm still watching films I was watching 20 years ago. Making films that stand, that's the goal."

Brad stars in new baseball movie 'Moneyball' and while he insists he doesn't know much about the sport, he loves playing games with his sons.

He told Empire magazine: "I know very little about baseball besides the fact I took one in the face when I was in junior high. Eighteen stitches was the result of that incident.

"I like to play ball with my boys though, throw the ball around, these kind of things. I like American football and football-football."
