Brad Pitt may appear to be on top of the world, but he insists that happiness is "overrated."
"I put much more emphasis on being a satisfied man," the actor, 47, tells Parade magazine in a revealing interview that will be published Sunday. "I'm satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much."
Pitt describes his partner, Angelina Jolie, as "such a great mom," and says starting a family with her was "one of the greatest, smartest things I ever did."
"A family is a risky venture, because the greater the love, the greater the loss," he adds. "That's the trade-off."

When your parents are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, you're guaranteed to get a taste of different cultures around the world.
But one member of the Jolie-Pitt brood seems to have taken that one step further.
On Monday, the architecture-loving Pitt and Jolie booked a private tour of Hill House, the Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed home in Helensburgh, Scotland, near where the family is staying. Afterward, the couple was spotted picking up souvenirs at the gift shop (including novelty pencils for the kids), and sat down to a traditional supper, where Maddox showed off his surprisingly sophisticated palate.
