Brad Pitt defends family photo dealsDecember 4th, 2008 - 4:23 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 4 (ANI): Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt has defended his and partner Angelina Jolie’’s decision to sell pictures of their family to magazines, insisting that the money from the deals went for good causes.
In 2006 Pitt and Jolie struck a multi-million dollar with picture agency Getty, for releasing the first shots of their first biological child, Shiloh, now two, in return for a donation to charity.
While earlier this year (08), the couple sold shots of their newborn twins Knox and Vivienne for a reported 14 million dollars, which was split between U.S. magazine People and British publication Hello.
In an interview to US talk show host Larry King, Pitt admitted that it was difficult to sell such intimate pictures of his children, but has no regrets, because the money has gone to such good causes.
Angie and I did talk about it a lot, especially with the birth of Shiloh. The pictures, I”m talking about the pictures of the kids, there’’s a bounty on our heads. These pictures are going to come out at some point, they”re gonna be chasing us, they”ll do anything to get these photos, Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“So we just thought that maybe, since there’’s such a bounty and that bounty is so obnoxious, we could take that money and funnel it into something good.
And that’’s what we did. It’’s still a bit uncomfortable to do such a thing, but I know it’’s right in the end,” he added. (ANI)
