This kind of makes me wonder how much Coke is paying Brad and Angelina for some pimping because this is the second time I’ve heard Brad talk about “Coca-Cola” in the last week. Hmmm….
Apparently, in a forthcoming episode of Inside the Actors’ Studio, Brad (48) tells James Lipton that he occasionally has to bribe his six kids (Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and Vivienne and Knox, 3) with “Coca-Cola” to get them out the door: “I admit there’s times like, ‘We gotta get up. Get up…! Here’s your shoes. Here’s your shoes. Drink this Coke. Drink this Coca-Cola. Drink it all. Right now! Drink it! Drink it! Drink it!’ Just so we could get ’em up and going.”
And it’s funny, I heard him say the same thing on the red carpet before last weekend’s SAG awards. I remember thinking, “huh?” And then I moved on with my night.
Honestly, I can’t judge the guy for that because (a) I myself don’t have 6 kids under the age of 10, and (b) I kind of only wish I was that easy going about pop and junk food….
How about you? Would you give your kids Coke to get them going in the morning?
(Also, I’m ashamed to admit, I watched Toddlers and Tiaras for the first time the other day to see what all the crazy was about, and OY. There was a lot of pop and mystery “go-go” juice being ingested by those poor kids.)
