Brad Pitt's Part in Angelina Jolie's 'Salt' Scrapped Because of Kids

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt

Jolie reveals that her partner was wanted for a cameo role in her film but he rejected the offer because he had to babysit their six kids.

Brad Pitt rejected a cameo role opposite partner Angelina Jolie in her new spy thriller "Salt" because he had to babysit the couple's six kids. The actress was campaigning for Pitt to perform a motorcycle stunt for a short scene in the action film, marking the first time the couple would have shared the big screen since 2005's "Mr and Mrs Smith".

But the complicated stunt work would have required too much time to film - so Pitt happily agreed to stay at home with the tots.

Jolie tells USA Today, "He was almost going to be the motorcycle guy that I knocked down and then he'd call me a bad name. But he was with the kids that day, and we couldn't work it out."

    Strange how it says Brad had to "babysit." How about he had to "father"? If he were starring in a film, I'm sure it wouldn't say Angelina was at home "babysitting"????

    So these are their excuses...... Too busy ....... Too bored...... The kids..... How bout some truth..... Brad grew a beard cuz angie hated it and it kept her away...... He didnt film a cameo.... Cuz he hates his baby mammas guts..... He wasnt at comiccon (despite his movie megamind).. Because he did not want to spend the day with angie and no way to dodge interviews...... At the salt premiere brad looks like hes in pain.... And he is..... Jen flew away...... But she will be back
