Brad Pitt Talks Fatherhood, Upsets Venice Photogs

Posted Sunday September 2, 2007 2:17 PM GMT

After flying off to Italy for the Venice Film Festival a few days ago, Brad Pitt finally took to the red carpet for a photocall for his latest work, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford.

With the world premiere of his Western flick taking place later today (September 2), Brad took a little time to talk about something other than movies... his experiences in fatherhood.

The Fight Club stud spoke of his daddy duties, professing, “It’s the most fun I’ve ever had and also the biggest pain in the ass I’ve ever experienced. I love it and can’t recommend it any more highly – although sleep is non-existent.”

Pitt, who was accompanied by wife Angelina Jolie to Venice (although she didn't attend the photocall), continued, “It makes me much more efficient because when I work I really have to focus, I know I’ve less time to get things done. Actually I’m quite pleased by it.”

And while the 43-year-old actor was clearly the biggest draw of the festival thus far, arriving to deafening screams from the crowds, he did have a bad experience with the photographers on hand.

Trouble arose when Pitt refused to shed his aviator sunglasses before having his picture taken. The photogs "booed and accused him of being vain before walking out in protest."
