He's on top of the world as the most envied man in stardom, but Brad Pitt wants the public to understand that it can be a tougher life than they imagine.
"It's so tough being an actor," Pitt, 45, joked at the Berlin premiere of "Inglourious Basterds" Tuesday night — nattily dressed in a Tom Ford gun metal grey suit, silver tie and white shirt. "Sometimes they bring you coffee, and sometimes it's cold, and sometimes you don't have a chair to sit on."
But with six young ones and partner Angelina Jolie at home, he does get early nights when not working. "I'm a dad now — my partying ends at 6 p.m.," he told the Daily Mail.
Hard work or not, Pitt clearly felt at ease in Berlin, where the Quentin Taratino-helmed film was shot and he and his family lived during filming.
"It's always great to be here and I have a lot of friends here," he told a reporter from Bunte magazine.
He also knows how to relax, German-style, when out past his 6 o'clock "curfew." Eyewitnesses report that Pitt sauntered into the screening with a beer in his hand.
