Brad Pitt, 48, may be known for his dramatic and suspenseful roles, such as John Smith in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, but underneath he’s just a big softie.

The Hollywood heartthrob — who has six children within the Pitt-Jolie clan — explained the importance of family and the image of his legacy in a recent dialogue with Interview magazine.

Discussing upcoming movie roles, Pitt gushed, “I want it to be worthy enough of a story to leave the family, you know? They’re everything… The family is first… I don’t want to embarrass them.”

What else did Pitt reveal in the October/November issue of Interview mag?

Pitt posed as Bob Marley, James Dean and a series of other characters, including a retro Hollywood actor for the magazine’s photo shoot.

But it turns out that the fiance of Maleficent actress Angelina Jolie, 37, wants to take his talents more behind-the-scenes.

“I’d rather be behind the camera,” Pitt confessed to the mag.

Though, he still feels “pretty damn solid” about his acting career — including his upcoming role as a hitman in Killing Them Softly, releasing to theaters on Nov. 30.

Pitt and Jolie finally locked in their relationship with a ring back in April, but the two are still waiting to be wed. With more family awareness, it sure sounds like the bells will be chiming soon.

How adorable are Pitt’s recent family confessions and which look do you like the best?
