Washington, Dec 4 : Brad Pitt has admitted that he takes public interest in his family as a compliment.
Pitt and his partner Angelina Jolie have six kids: 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 sure that his family gets so much attention because it's different to the norm, which he takes as a compliment.
"(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," Contactmusic quoted him, as telling U.S. talkshow host Larry King.
