Brad Pitt refused to bring his six children to the set of World War II movie 'Inglourious Basterds', despite his co-stars begging to meet them
Brad Pitt's 'Inglourious Basterds' co-stars were disappointed they didn't meet his children.
Samm Levine revealed cast and crew begged Brad - who has adopted kids Maddox, seven, Pax, five, and four-year-old Zahara and biological children Shiloh, three, and 10-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne with partner Angelina Jolie - to bring his kids to work, but he only introduced them to Maddox.
Samm explained: "He brought Maddox one or two times because he's the oldest. But everybody wanted him to bring the others, too. Everyone would always ask him, 'Hey! When are you going to bring the kids?' And he said, 'It's a World War II movie. What's a good day to bring my kids to this set? I don't think it would be right.' So he had a point there. And we were all pretty bummed about that, but we respected his reasoning. He's a pretty responsible guy."
Samm - who plays Private First Class (PFC) Gerold Hirschberg in the new movie, about a group of soldiers who are tasked with killing Nazi army members - added working with Brad has given his love life an unexpected boost.
He added to 'E!': "Women want to know what parts of my body touched Brad's! Unfortunately, it's mostly my hand. I shook his hand. Maybe a pat on the shoulder."
