Hollywood star Brad Pitt has told American television he wants more children with his partner Angelina Jolie.
"We're just getting started," he said in an interview on CNN's Larry King Live that aired last night in the US.
The 43-year-old star of such movies as Babel and Ocean's Eleven described Jolie as "a fantastic mother" to their four children - Maddox, six; Pax, four; Zahara, two; and Shiloh, one, adding that while parenthood is "the hardest job in the world", "it is everything" to him.
Pitt said in the interview that acting was becoming less important to him and that he would like to spend his time on other pursuits.
"It's become less and less a focus as I get older," he said.
"I think it's really more of a younger man, younger woman's game."
He said he didn't intend to give up acting - "I'd like to drop in if I'm still invited every few years or so" - but added, "It takes so much time. There's just other things I'd rather be doing."
Among those interests is a project he announced Monday to build 150 eco-friendly homes in one of the New Orleans neighbourhoods most devastated in 2005's Hurricane Katrina with hopes to expand the project across the city.
He also made it clear in the interview that his family is also a priority.
He and Jolie adopted three children and had their own daughter last year.
"They're as much my blood as I am theirs, and they are brothers and sisters," he said.
"And I look at this: One of them came from Ethiopia and one from Vietnam, one from Cambodia and one was born in Namibia, and they are brothers and sisters. And they have fun, and they squabble and they fight, just like any other family."
