Brad Pitt has learned to accept the public interest in his family, putting the attention down to the fact his multi-cultural brood is so unusual.
The Hollywood actor has six children with his partner, Angelina Jolie: adopted Maddox, seven, from Cambodia, Pax, four, from Vietnam, and Zahara, three, from Ethiopia. They're also parents to biological offspring Shiloh, two, and baby twins Knox and Vivienne.
And Pitt is convinced the public is only fascinated with them because their family unit is different to the norm.
He tells U.S. talkshow host Larry King, "(The public interest) is quite complimentary. It is an interesting family, it's not your usual family. I'm quite interested in my family. I certainly don't see it as anything less than a compliment."
