Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's family

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have banned their children from watching their violent movies. The lovers, who met playing weapon-wielding assassins in 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith', have also banned their brood from playing with toy guns because they don't want them exposed to violence.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Angelina is protecting them from seeing her make violence look good."Most of her successful roles have had her waving weapons and getting violent.

"Brad, 43, and Angelina, 31, are currently in Prague, where Angelina is filming 'Wanted', alongside Morgan Freeman and James McAvoy.'Wanted' focuses on a man who realises his late father was an assassin and then trains to become a professional killer. Angelina, famed for her role as feisty ammo-loaded Lara Croft in 'Tomb Raider', has three adopted children, Maddox, five, Pax Thien, three and Zahara, two, and a biological daughter Shiloh, nearly one, with partner Brad.

That’s right, Angelina, the world your children will grow up in has no violence, no bad people, no Islamic terrorists. Your children won’t need to know how to stand and fight or defend their families. Just keep floating around in your bubble and leave the heavy lifting to the rest of us /sickofliberalclaptrap

Our video technology really needs to be improved to the point where actors and actresses are mere persona’s that are digitally ghosted composite images that never actually speak as individuals/idiots.

Hehehe, you said it better than I could. One of these days, Jolie is going to be the poster child for, "No matter what she looks like, some guy somewhere is tired of putting up with her s**t."

Well, you would have to include the Ron Howard family...

.. Madonna (of course) ...

..& a whole buncha Hollywoodites who braggingly claim they don't let their children even watch TV...no TV...bad TV...

They make their children read, or play games, or go outside.

There's a whole lot of hypocrisy to go around.

Also, in her world, marriages are to be broken up. One is to remain in perpetual adultery with baby daddies until gay people can marry. And, Biological children are cared for less than adopted ones and called “blobs”.

These idiots collect children like charms on a bracelet. The kids will end being raised by nannies and turn into burned out druggies by the time they’re 18. Thanks Jolie and Brad.

They could ban children from all movies, and then maybe the TV.

It could start a trend to get all of these zanies out of the limelight, and into the market place where real people hold real jobs.

I have a problem with pulling children from their culture like this. It’s a shame. I’d be more supportive of it if they were children saved from abortion.

Cute kids.

While they're little, I mean.

Another 15 years from now and they'll all probably be a royal pain in America's ass.

One will be a fruity goody two-shoes with fancy new liberal ideas about converting endangered polar bears into vegetarians, and another will be a substance abuser of legenday proportions. One may turn out OK.

Just my guess.

I trust most parents here would not take their preschool age children to R rated movies. But I guess when Hollywood liberals make that decision it is an oddity.

I also wonder how they separate making money off of their movies they spend on their family and themselves. How do they explain this to their children? It’s alright for us to live off of violence; but we can’t really get near it. That’s only for the less fortunate.

Those kids always look unhappy. The little boy is always frowning. I have never seen a picture of them smiling. I wonder what kind of ‘childhood’ they’re having.

The white kid will be the fruit goody two-shoes.

The black kid will be the substance abuser.

The Asian kid will probably turn out OK.

That’s my prediction.

So I'm guessing you let your 5 year old watch R rated movies? It isn't like this says they are going to permanently keep them from it, I don't see any problem with not letting kids watch R rated movies when they are 5 and under.

And that it is mom and dad doing it, it would be even harder to explain why it isn't good to get in fights all the time.

And what’s with the dye-job on a three year old? Why make a fashion statement with a small child? I guess to get to the ideal level of shallowness you have to start young.

Perhaps she is just keeping people from getting arrested. We just had this happen on our military base a few days ago. They did an inspection of their car and found a gun that looked real, but ended up being a toy. They went through hours of questions and paperwork and finally were released. Angie is just looking after the good citizens of the U.S. and especially the military. lol.

Just wait until one of her kids picks up a stick, or lego or blow dryer and uses it like a gun. Kids will make guns out of anything!

These kids are all very young. Do you really think it would be appropriate for them to be watching violent movies, even those which would be perfectly appropriate for adults?

As for the toy guns, I don't think parents should allow them. Though I'm sure I'd part with Jolie and Pitt on the issue of teaching children to handle real guns from an early age. Letting children play with toy guns builds bad habits that are easily carried over to real guns. Years of running around with your finger on the trigger of toy guns, and pointing them willy nilly, builds habits that won't be easily reversed.

Start teaching kids to safely fire, load, and unload real guns when they're 5 or so, and keep them away from toy guns, and you'll get a child who habitually practices safe gun handling and understands that guns are serious business. I knew one woman who started her youngest at age 3, with a realistic air gun, at the range, and had him reciting the rules before each shot. His two slightly older siblings were practicing with .22s.

I wish those two mental midgets would shut up. Opposition to marriage, which they support, is far more damaging than children playing with toy guns. Lots of kids used to play Cowboys and Indians with toy guns with no harmful consequences.

My problem is not that small children should be watching R rated movies. At issue is their attitude about guns and violence and the world around them.

As for the toy guns, I don't think parents should allow them. Though I'm sure I'd part with Jolie and Pitt on the issue of teaching children to handle real guns from an early age. Letting children play with toy guns builds bad habits that are easily carried over to real guns. Years of running around with your finger on the trigger of toy guns, and pointing them willy nilly, builds habits that won't be easily reversed.

That is very silly. When I was a kid we played cops/robbers, cowboys/indians, monster vs monster, whatever. You don't need a toy gun to play at fighting and killing, you can point your finger and say "bang". Playing is an important part about learning and using your mind and body. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and sometimes playing is just that. It doesn't develop habits about holding a gun lol.
