Brad Pitt follows Gwyneth Paltrow's dad's advice
Hollywood star Brad Pitt follows his former fiancee Gwyneth Paltrow's father advice on remaining grounded.
Pitt was romantically involved with Paltrow in the mid-1990s, and the couple was briefly engaged before splitting in 1997. And that's when he learnt some life lessons from her father, late director Bruce Paltrow.
Despite 15 years, a marriage to Jennifer Aniston, and raising six kids with his current fiancee Angelina Jolie, Pitt admits Bruce Paltrow's tip to refer to himself as "self-employed" rather than "an actor" has kept him grounded, reports contactmusic.com.
"I learned that from Bruce Paltrow. I always liked it. It's a humble way to describe what we do. (If a stranger asks what I do) well, I'd be very Midwest about it, very Missouri. I'd say, 'This and that.' I'd say, 'I'm a dad, just like you.'," Pitt told Esquire magazine.
