"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.” - Brad Pitt on fatherhood.

"Shiloh found a dead bird, so she came in and said, 'Can I have a dead pet?' And I'm ... 'Uh-uh, I don't think it's healthy, honey. I think they have to put him in a box,' and I had to run out to find, like, a taxidermy bird. I just worked it out for her. ... I figured that I couldn't keep the actual dead bird from the yard, so I swayed her toward one that had been cleaned, at least." - Angelina on her daughter's unique request!
