LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Brad Pitt says he's proud of his growing family with partner Angelina Jolie and that the Hollywood super-couple will consider marrying if they "feel it's important to our kids."

Pitt, who is earning early Oscar buzz for his role as a man who ages backward in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," told NBC's the "Today" show on Tuesday that the couple's six children enrich his life.

"I'm really proud of this family," Pitt said in an interview with "Today" show journalist Ann Curry.

"I look at my sons and my daughters, and one's from Vietnam and one's from Cambodia and one's from Ethiopia and there's this kid who was born in Namibia and France ... and they're brothers and sisters, man," Pitt said.

"And they're fighting and they're laughing and they're going into hysterics and they're staying up late and they're messing with their parents and they're driving me crazy," he said. "Truly I feel, I feel rich being around them. It's a rich home, and each one of them offers so much to the mix."

Pitt then deadpanned: "Surprising, though: Six kids is not as easy as you would think."

Asked by Curry if he and Jolie would marry, the actor, who said he was reluctant to discuss his personal life, responded:

"If we feel it's important to our kids, we'll do so."   Continued...
