London (ANI): Brad Pitt has revealed that when it comes to Christmas, he and partner Angelina Jolie try not to spend excessively. The Burn After Reading actor said that the couple preferred to teach their six kids Maddox, seven, Pax, five, Zahara, three, Shiloh two and five-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne, to actually spend time on the presents rather than shelling loads of cash on flamboyant demands.
"We do exchange gifts, although we don"t feel any great pressure to make them big or expensive gifts," the Sun quoted him as telling Hello! Magazine. "And the kids don"t ask for the big gifts for the reason that they don't see a lot of the American cartoon television, which is packed with all those manipulative commercials for big toys that look so fantastic.

The rule is that everyone's got to make something for someone else, you got to put time into it. "Then, when they give to each other, it's really sweet. The gift-giving is a very nice time for us. It's chaos at times but there's so much joy in our house right now," he added.
