Brad Pitt wants Angelina Jolie to be ''proud'' of him.

The 'Killing Them Softly' actor - who raises six children, Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne, with the Oscar-winning actress - says it's important for him to get Angelina's approval of his work as he wants to impress her.

He said: ''Yeah, I want her approval. I want her to like the movie, I want her to be proud of her man.''

Brad and Angelina - who are set to marry later this year - take it turns to go to work so the other one can be with the children and he says he enjoys his time being a hands-on father.

He said: ''This year, mom is working. I worked a lot last year, this year mom is working a lot and I get to be dad. It's great to be with the kids more. We do normal stuff. I mean, lunch is an adventure for us!''
