Brad Pitt Says His Brood Is Not Spoiled!

You may imagine that Christmas at the Jolie-Pitt house is just an embarassment of riches. Tons of ridiculous presents everywhere, like a full-size train set that runs through the house like Ricky Schroeder had in Silver Spoons, but Brad says it's not so.

"We do exchange gifts, although we don't feel any pressure to make them big or expensive gifts," Brad told Hello.

The actor said that he and love Angelina don't allow their kids watch cartoons, where they could be enticed by ads for over-the-top toys.

"When they do see that stuff is when they start asking for the toys, so we figure if they don't see them, they won't know they're there. So we have gifts, but we try to keep the money spent to a minimum," he said.

Brad revealed that they even make gifts for each other.

"The rule is that everyone's got to make something for someone else, you got to put time into it," he said. "Then, when they give to each other, it's really sweet."

Totally nice and thoughtful and in the holiday spirit. But, if we're being honest, and it's a toss-up between a Maddox's homemade macaroni ashtray and Ricky Schroeder's train, you're going to hear a big "Choo Choo!" from this girl.
