Taraji P. Henson, who plays Brad Pitt’s mother in their upcoming film, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, says that “Brad and Angie” have the “parenting thing mapped out.”
“There are some parents who are meant to be parents of multiple [children]. They were chosen,” Taraji told People magazine at Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ birthday bash and Barack Obama victory party sponsored by Ciroc Vodka on Wednesday night.
“We all know that he is an incredible artist, but he really is a great person and a great father,” Taraji added of the father of six.
The family “spend one-on-one time with each child everyday,” shared Taraji. “[Brad] would bring a different child to the set every day and spend all day with that one child. I never saw a nanny. It was always him, Angelina, or his parents.”
She recounts when Angelina visited the set. “She had Shiloh, and [Brad] grabbed my hand and was like, ‘Taji, Taji, come over here and meet Angie. Come and meet Angie.'” She added, “He was dragging me and I [thought], ‘These are the coolest, most real and most down-to-earth people.’ ”
