Pitt 'would like to' marry Jolie, won't say if he's proposed

When it comes to celebrity couples who have been together for so long some assume they've already wed, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are certainly prime examples.

And yet, seven years and six kids later, they still haven't tied the knot, as they've famously said that they'll get married when it's legally possible for everyone to do so.

However, 48-year-old Pitt thinks that they may not hold out.

"We'd actually like to," the actor tells the Hollywood Reporter. "It seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it till everyone can. But I don't think we'll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment."

He wouldn't "go any further" to answer the question of whether he's proposed, instead adding, "but to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous."

One thing both he and his partner Jolie, 36,  have clearly committed to is having a large family. Of course, just like the possibility that they'll one day marry, is the possibility that they'll also have more kids.

"We haven't closed the book on it. There's a really nice balance in the house right now, but if we see the need and get that lightning bolt that says, 'We can help this person; we could do something here,' then absolutely," Pitt said.

    Maybe none of the above posters knew that Jennifer was pregnant by Brad when they were married, (She miscarried and it was very tramatic for both her and Brad) that is why Angie threw such a fit that Brad "forgot" to mention it....She was mad cause she didn't want anyone else to ever be pregnant by Brad...Her possessive nature will eventionally break them up...Anything and everything Angie does is for attention...If she would show that she is a loving mother instead of just using them for photo ops, I think more people would stop giving such bad comments... Jen is over this whole divorce saga and is happy in her own life and she should also be let be...JUST SAYING...........

      then that Mad and Pax are proud they're Asian and Zee's very proud she's African.Charms- I reeembmr that, too. Angie said that she was explaining to Maddox that mommy has a baby in her tummy, and that he didn't grow in mommy's tummy but in another woman's tummy. On a similar note, during one of her interviews for Kung Fu Panda promotion, she mentioned that she had recently overheard Mad talking about adoption with Zee, saying, No Zee, reeembmr? You were in that nice African woman. I was in that nice Cambodian woman. As far as other things Angie and Brad have said about the three oldest kids knowing they're adopted .During one of her interviews during TT promtion (I think it was TT, anyway. It may have been Salt.) Angie spoke about how they'd recently visited Ethiopia (that was back in 2009, right after or before- I can't reeembmr which- we saw Angie and Brad taking the twins out for ice cream in Jordan. At the time, it was believed that only Angie and the older girls had gone .proving once again just how much the J-Ps can duck under the radar when they want to! .She said that Mad, Pax, and Shi (the twins would have been a bit too young to understand about adoption and nationalities and all that stuff!) were telling Zee how cool it is that she's African .and that they thought it was neat that with Zee's food you use bread as your utensial!She also spoke at one point about Maddox starting to learn Khmer, the language spoken in Cambodia, and later about how they have a few teachers who travel with them as well as nannies .two of whom are language tutors for the boys. One speaks to Mad in Khmer, the other to Pax in Vietnamese (in Pax's case, of course, the purpose is ensuring that he retains his native tongue rather than teaching him the language, since he already knows Vietnamese).In addition, Angie hinted that they may hire someone to teach Zee Amheric (Ethiopia's mother tongue) someday.One of my favorite tidbits that Angie has shared about the kids knowing they're adopted is this: A few years after she adopted Mad, she mentioned that he knows that he comes from a different country than mommy does .and that he (at the time) loved to tease her about the fact that his country is bigger than mommy's !Oh, and Angie and Mad actually lived together in Cambodia for awhile. She's spoken about their house there (I think they may still own it. At any rate, they did as of a few years ago, because Angie mentioned it), referring to it as a shack . I saw a picture of it in PEOPLE magazine .and a shack is indeed bascially what it is. That's just one of the many things I admire about Angie. Even though she's a celeb, she didn't insist on having some fancy mansion for her home in Cambodia. Instead, she chose the type of home that a lot of normal people in Cambodia probably live in. All of that said, I think we can now safely say that the Haiti adoption rumor is false. If there were any truth to it, we probably would have heard something from a more credible source by now.

    Marriage is so ten minutes ago. It's a LEGAL CONTRACT involving money and goods, and it doesn't even work in the children's best interests in the event of a divorce, since they can end up with a parent who does them no more good than a live chicken would. The divorce courts are full of people who married 'for the children' or because their relationship needed 'a lift' or 'a further commitment'.
    Religious people get married because they mistakenly believe it's an order to be found somewhere in the bible. What it really was originally was a contract of ownership by the man of the woman. Why are people so eager to pursue that?

    Angie looks old for 36. Not aging well Angie. Brad is still just as handsome as ever. Jennifer Aniston is probably the plainest blonde celebrity I've ever come across. She has a cute face and pretty smile but overall just plain old plain and boring. Maybe she was a bore in the bedroom because I'm sorry but when I look at Jen, all I see is boredom. Angie probably came along and knocked Brad's socks off.

      We just saw your movie. I said: Which one? and he caleld to my grandmother: Betty, what was the name of that picture we were just watching? Kids are very adaptable. We take them on location, usually travelling by night while the kids sleep. We're quite comfortable living out of suitcases. We've got it down to an art, and the kids have got their backpacks. Their mom is really good at the packing. She's really talented.I think I would like to design something like a city or a museum. I want to do something hands-on rather than just play golf, which is the sport of the religious right. I'm very involved in affordable green housing. I'd like to one day establish a Monet garden, for example, and get lost in nature at my own home.Although I was brought up in a Southern Baptist family I am no longer a Christian and don't believe in God. I am probably 20% atheist and 80% agnostic. I don't believe in an afterlife. There's peace in understanding that I have only one life, here and now, and I'm responsible.No one has the right to deny another their life. Even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America. My vote will always be for equality.

      Some of you are just either stupid or have no memory of what his "marriage" to Jen was. How would you like to be married to someone who apparently was married to you for show, and didn't even care enough about him to adopt a child with him, let alone have a child with him, since her body was so much more important than family. She's made a career out of a divorce that took place longer ago than they were married, so honestly, this "Angie broke up their marriage" crap is just that; crap!

      If you people thought Tori Spelling was a total b#%$h for breaking up Dean McDermott's marriage, with children involved and an adoption in process yet, maybe I would even think you might have a point, but divorce happens all the time for more reasons than I can count, so...whatever. Let it go, people, let it go. I hope they get married and stay married until one of them dies! Love their kids, love them, and love their movies!!!

Leave them alone, they seem happy, but then we don't really know them now do we, contrary to what most of people posting here think. You guys are posting like you are friends or acquiantences of them !!! You have no clue what these people are really like, but yet you despise them. And oh come on, for all you people saying Poor Poor Jen, he cheated on her, get a life !! We have no idea what marriage to her was really like ... and come on its 2012 already !!! Like its never happened before...

      Publicity for whom? The media keeps asking them the same stupid question.

      I admire the fact that they consistently bring up marriage inequality when they're asked. I hope they do wait until marriage is legal for both straight and gay couples.

  42. trix are for kids

    It's a shame the term "marriage" has been thrown around as if it was nothing, thanks to these Hollywood celebrities. Of course we shouldn't model our lives after these people, but just saying...

    Same can be said about "love" as well.
