Brad Pitt has admitted that the way he was brought up amid Christian strictures indeed turned out to be a ‘stifling experience’ for him.
The 47-year-old actor - who raises adopted children Maddox, 9, Pax, 7, and six-year-old Zahara, as well as biological kids Shiloh, 4, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with Angelina Jolie - admitted he has ‘issues’ with the religious way he was brought up as a child.
"I got brought up being told things were God's way, and when things didn't work out it was called God's plan,”
quoted him as telling
"I've got my issues with it. Don't get me started. I found it very stifling," he said.
However, Brad - who plays a father bringing up his family in 1950s Texas in new movie
The Tree of Life
- explained he is keen for his children to see their own upbringing in a positive light.
