Brad Pitt Talks Dealing With Turning 50 And New Film '12 Years A Slave'

Brad Pitt turns 50 years old in December (18th) but the Hollywood actor embraces reaching the half century mark.

In an upcoming interview with NBC's Ann Curry on the 'Today' show Pitt explains his view on aging.

"I haven't minded a bit," he tells Curry, "I have no complaints, I- I don't know. We'll see when I get a little clo- I'm busy right now so I haven't thought about it."

Pitt doesn't have much to complain about! The father of six has had one of the most successful Hollywood careers this past 25 years, he is engaged to his 'Mr & Mrs Smith' co-star, Angelina Jolie and now owns his own production company called Plan B Entertainment.

The 'World War Z' star also discussed his upcoming film '12 Years A Slave' which has already received unanimous praise from critics when doing the rounds at this year's film festivals.

"It's why I got into film in the first place," he said. It's one of those few films that cuts to the base of our humanity."

The movie, based on a true story, is a brutal and violent depiction of an African American man who was kidnapped in Washington, D.C. and sold into slavery in 1841. He then spent 12 years working on a plantations in Louisianan.

Pitt, who plays a Canadian abolitionist discussed if he would let any of his children watch it.

"Now- maybe my eldest I would, right now. I'd rather for the others to get a little bit older and understand the dynamics of the world a little more."

Pitt's full interview airs on NBC on October 16th 2013.
