Brad Pitt Is too Old, Mean for Video Games

Never mind that 47-year-old actor Brad Pitt is married to Angelina Jolie, star of the Tomb Raider movies, the Hollywood actor is apparently worried that their children are playing too many games.

A source told the National Enquirer that Pitt took the kid's laptops and hid them in storage.

"He [Pitt] wants them playing in the dirt, reading books and interacting with each other," the source said. "Brad believes their minds are turning to mush from staring at the screens all day."


Apparently, the kids enjoy playing Forza Motorsport 4 and Just Dance 3, but honestly, who doesn't? The source added that all the children "threw a hissy fit after Brad pulled the plug on their online fun."

The National Enquirer didn't distinguish between laptops and consoles.

The part about Pitt wanting his kids to play outside in the dirt makes sense. His partner, Angelina Jolie, seems to have a much more open-mind philosophy about gaming and raising kids.

Back in 2008, Jolie said, "My kids play video games. I let them play with toy soldiers. We don't take war and violence lightly, but we don't hide it from anybody."


Right after she adopted one of her children in 2007, she even pacified the kid with his first possession: a Nintendo handheld. Now, he has dirt to play with.


And Brad Pitt, he's 47. FORTY SEVEN!
