So how do Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, two of the biggest- and most photographed- movie stars on the planet, stay grounded? Well, based on what Angelina says, the realities of being human and parents come into play. Angelina explained:

“The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you’re the person who takes them to go poop! We have a very normal, very grounded home. And we’re friends, and we have a laugh with our kids.

“And we don’t pay attention to this [celebrity] view of ourselves. We don’t buy those magazines, we don’t watch those TV shows. We just shut it out. We just explain to our kids that people like to take pictures of people who make movies. And that’s all it is. It’s not anything special about mommy and daddy – we just happen to make movies.”

That sounds like a great strategy to me. Parenting kids does keep it real, doesn’t it?
