When it comes to taking on a role, Brad Pitt has a lot to consider, specifically his family.
In Interview's October/November issue, Pitt talks to Guy Ritchie about balancing his acting career with his love for producing films and his family.
"There are always creative issues, but those practical issues are also significant: who you're going to be with, where you're going to be together, how everyone's schedules line up, how long it's going to take you away from your family," says Ritchie.

Congratulations are in order for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who confirmed their engagement to PEOPLE on Friday.
But the couple, who've been together since 2005, have had plenty to say on the subject of marriage over the years – namely why they weren't going to do it.

Here's a chronological look back at how they've addressed their feelings about marriage over the years:

A day after dazzling in velvet Versace at the Academy Awards, Angelina Jolie was back to normal – and showing a lot less leg – running errands in L.A. Monday.
After taking a coffee break with partner Brad Pitt's mom, Jane, the actress, dressed down in black, was spotted out and about with 3-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne.
And although she was all smiles, Jolie, 36, wasn't striking any poses for the paparazzi like she did when she hit the Oscars stage to present the award for Best Adapted Screenplay Sunday night.

Once again, Brad Pitt was turning heads on the red carpet Monday night. And it wasn't just because of a gorgeous Angelina Jolie on his arm, but because of his newest accessory: a black cane.
The actor, 48, who previously told reporters he had an injured ACL (a ligament in the knee that connects the femur with the tibia), tells PEOPLE he's doing just fine.
"It wasn't life or death," Pitt, who slipped down a hill while carrying 3-year-old daughter Vivienne, said at Monday's New York Film Critics Circle Awards. "It was just an old man tripping."

Angelina Jolie is as well known for her work helping refugees around the world as she is for making movies. But she'll let her kids decide for themselves whether they want to follow in her activist footsteps.
"I'm not one of those moms who kind of lectures [my kids]," Jolie, 36, told reporters on Saturday at the 23rd Annual Palm Springs Film Festival. "But I do tell them, whenever I go on a trip, where I'm going and why. And on some occasions, they've come with me to different refugee camps. And they also go to their home countries a lot."
The actress, who wore an Elie Saab gown to the festival's awards gala, has faith her little ones will make decisions based on what they see in their day-to-day lives.

Hey, those people in the movies are getting married. Why aren't Mom and Dad?
That's the question Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's children have started asking, according to the actress, whose stance on marriage is the subject of intense interest outside the household as well.
"They have asked, yeah, because ... people get married in the movies," Jolie, 36, tells Nightline in an interview airing Monday. "Shrek and Fiona are married, you know?"
So, how does she respond? By explaining that you don't have to be married to be committed to a partner or your family.
