Brad Pitt likes taking his kids around the world for his work because he thinks travel is educational and he had never been on a plane until he was 25
Brad Pitt had never been on a plane until he was 25.
The 50-year-old actor - who raises children Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight and twins Knox and Vivienne, six, with wife Angelina Jolie - is keen for his kids to get an "education" by seeing as much of the world as possible while he and his spouse are working.
He said: "Travel is the best education there is. I had never been on a plane until I was 24 or 25 so when I started to travel abroad, whether it was to Netherlands or Tokyo or Belgium, it was all such an experience.
"Angie and I travel a lot for work and that's great but you're always on a schedule. So - especially with the kids - we always try to carve out days where we aren't working where we experience more of the culture of the country."
And one of the "cool" things the family has done is camped overnight in a zoo.
Brad told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "We do some really cool stuff too. When Angie was filming 'Unbroken' we spent a night at a zoo. It's great fun, you can rent tents and sleep out there overnight and see the animals all night long. We had a great time."
