Pitt says he's generally concerned with the messages he's sending his children.
"Kids hold up a mirror to you," the 47-year-old says. "You can't make excuses. You've got to make sure they've brushed their teeth and eaten a good breakfast. You want to be present if they wake up with a bad dream."
Like most parents, Pitt says he worries about his brood non-stop and that fears about his kids' safety "keep me up at night."
But unlike other couples, Brangelina has to deal with being the most popular pair in the world -- and all that goes with it.
"We're hunted," Pitt says. "Our kids have to live behind a gate. Outside, there are people with cameras. But I'll take the trade-off. I never knew I was capable of experiencing so much love."
Still, Pitt and Jolie try to make their kids feel like they are just like everybody else. "Angie and I do everything we can to carve out some semblance of normalcy for them, to re-create the kinds of moments that were special for us."
And that normalcy includes making it clear that their parents are very much in love.
"There are no secrets at our house," Pitt says. "We tell the kids, 'Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.' They go, 'Eww, gross!' But we demand it."
