Brad Pitt on Kids' Acting Career: 'Not Until They're 18'

Once again, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are taking over red carpet season. And not just by being the hottest power couple in Hollywood, they've also both had amazing accomplishments in film this past year.

Hollyscoop caught up with the stunning pair at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and talked everything from work to marriage to their famous brood. We asked Brad if Maddox and the gang had any interest in following in their parents' footsteps to become actors.

"Whatever they want to do," Brad told Hollyscoop. "Whatever makes them happy."

He does have one stipulation, however.

"Not until they're eighteen."

Brad starred in Moneyball last year, and his performance in the movie garnered him both a SAG and Golden Globe nomination.

"I am extremely proud of him," Angelina told Hollyscoop. "I see him in the films he's done, that are being acknowledged, I saw how hard he worked, and I know how much it means to him. So I am very happy and proud of him."

Angelina might be proud of her man, but she's got plenty to be proud of in her own right. Last year, Jolie made her directorial debut with In the Land of Blood and Honey, for which she also received a Golden Globe nomination. Hollyscoop asked Angelina if her husband offered any advice for the project. She told us it was more "about confidence."

"[Brad] supported me and made me feel confident," Jolie told Hollyscoop.

Both Brad and Angelina continue to put their efforts into projects that are meaningful to them.

"No, I'm all about the money," Brad jokes with us before clearing the air:

"I've actually done films that have cost me money. Sometimes you pick some to do for a bigger release, and you do some that are labors of love. These two (Moneyball and Tree of Life) were that."

Pitt's controversial flick, Tree of Life won him a Desert Palm Achievement Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival on Saturday. He also won an Achievement Award for Moneyball.

Pitt told Hollyscoop that it was "very nice seeing [the movies] paid off this way."

So is he expecting an Oscar nod as well?

"We'll see what happens," Brad tells us.
