Brad Pitt, ever
the social activist, says he won't be marrying Angelina
Jolie until the restrictions on who can marry whom are
dropped.

"Angie and I will
consider tying the knot when everyone else in the
country who wants to be married is legally able," the
42-year-old actor reveals in Esquire magazine's
October issue, on newsstands September 19.

In the article he
reflects on "15 things I think everyone should know."

Though Shiloh,
the world-famous daughter of Pitt and
girlfriend–earth mother Jolie, hogged much
attention upon her birth in May, Pitt says he "cannot
imagine life" without adopted children Maddox, 5, and
Zahara, 1.

"They're as much
of my blood as any natural-born, and I'm theirs," says
Pitt. "That's all I can say about it. I can't live
without them. So anyone considering [adoption], that's my
vote."

Pitt, who plays a
world traveler in the upcoming drama Babel,
subscribes to a laid-back parenting style. "I try not
to stifle them in any way," he says. "If it's not
hurting anyone, I want them to be able to explore. Sometimes
that means they're quite rambunctious."

Lucky kids.

"I feel it's
really important to have that time to sit and talk to
them," he continues. "I really like that last minute before
they fade off. And always give them a heads-up before
you jerk them out of something. You need to tell them,
like, 'You have three more minutes.' " (AP)
