"It's one of those few films that cuts to the base of our humanity," Pitt told Ann Curry Wednesday on the "Today" show, about the film, based on the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man who was sold into slavery.

Brad told Ann he "absolutely" plans to show his children the film, but not right now.

"Maybe my eldest I would [show it to] right now," he said. "I'd rather for the others to get a little bit older and understand the dynamics of the world a little more."

Curry asked Pitt about turning 50, a milestone he will hit on Dec. 18. "So far I haven't minded a bit. So I have no complaints," he said.

Asked if he is "cool" with it, Pitt said "Cool? I don't know. We'll see. I'm busy right now so I haven't thought about it."
