Pitt defends decision to sell picturesDecember 4th, 2008 - 12:55 pm ICT by IANS
London, Dec 4 (IANS) Actor Brad Pitt defended the decision made by him and his partner Angelina Jolie to sell their family pictures to magazine saying it was used to “funnel the money into something good.”Contactmusic.com reports that Pitt and Jolie in July pocketed $14 million for the pictures of their twins. But the money went toward the Jolie-Pitt foundation.
Pitt said: “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. 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.”
