After Brad Pitt celeberated his ‘Best Supporting Actor’ award at the Oscars over the weekend, the famous star discussed the possibility of his children following his footsteps into Hollywood.

HELLO! reports that during an interview with the Mexico Informer on Sunday night, the 56-year-old was asked how he would feel if any of his six children wanted to become an actor.

‘We can have that conversation once they are 18!’ he told the news outlet.

‘I want them to follow their passions, whatever they're most interested in. Then I think it's about guiding as you can. But sure, why not.’

The Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood star is father to Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Pitt’s five youngest children split their time between his home and their mother Angelina Jolie’s in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, his eldest son Maddox is currently living in South Korea where he is studying at university.

The actress alluded to her custody agreement with her ex-husband – who she divorced in 2016 – in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in December.

‘I would love to live abroad and will do as soon as my children are 18,’ she told the publication. ‘Right now I'm having to base where their father chooses to live.’

During his Oscars acceptance speech, the actor dedicated his award to his children, as well as giving a nod to his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.

‘This is for my kids, who colour everything I do. I adore you,’ he said.

After hearing his name read aloud during the ceremony, Pitt got up from his seat and bear hugged DiCaprio, who sat alongside his girlfriend Camilla Morrone during the show.

'Leo, I’ll ride on your coattails any day, man – the view is fantastic,’ he noted during his speech.

The Oscar marks Pitt’s first independent win for a performance in a film following his 2014 ‘Best Picture’ award for producing 12 Years A Slave.

During the evening, the actor sat alongside his manager Cynthia Pett-Dante weeks after he joked at the Golden Globes about his love life.

‘I wanted to bring my mum but I couldn’t, because anyone I stand next to, they say I’m dating,’ he said during his acceptance speech for ‘Best Supporting Actor’, which prompted laughter from his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston in the audience.

‘And that would just be awkward.’
