Brad Pitt says "I have very few friends," and the reason for the exclusive inner-circle is because he believes he has an awesome family.
"I have a handful of close friends and I have my family and I haven't known life to be any happier. I'm making things. I just haven't known life to be any happier," the "World War Z" actor tells Esquire, whose June/July issue he covers with an effortless bad-boy air.
Pitt, 49, plays zombie-fighting family man and ex-U.N. investigator Gerry Lane in the upcoming film, which hits theaters June 21. But he's quite the patriarch in real life as well. He has a brood of six children — biological and adopted — with fiancée Angelina Jolie, who recently revealed that she had a preventative double mastectomy and plans to have her ovaries removed next. This was his first print interview since the announcement, for which he'd released a statement and called her decision "heroic."
