Everybody knows who Brad Pitt is. It would probably be safe to say that he is one of the most recognizable faces in the world.

Brad Pitt told Larry King on CNN’s “Larry King Live” that making the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” changed him, made him question his very existence.
“How do I want to use that time? And who do I want to spend it with? This film just makes me want to hug my kids and call my folks.”
Pitt also told King that there was nothing more important than being a father.
