“I've been dragging them all from continent to continent lately, so we're going to have to give them a break soon. For the long term, right now, we're choosing France," Pitt said. "It's good living there, a really nice way of life.”

The Jolie-Pitts have been all over the world this year - from their homes in Los Angeles and New Orleans to a castle in Germany, where Brad was filming "Inglourious Basterds" - but right now, France is where they want to be.

“It's a place where the kids can run free and not be hassled – we have a good relationship with the locals, and it's a good base for the family," Brad says.

So how will the famous family be celebrating the holidays?

“We do exchange gifts, although we don’t feel any pressure to make them big or expensive gifts,” Brad says.

In fact, many of the gifts are homemade.

“The rule is that everyone’s got to make something for someone else, you got to put time into it,” Brad said. “Then, when they give to each other, it’s really sweet.”
