Brad Pitt had a fantastic year previously, but insiders told People on Friday that he’s looking forward to an even better year ahead.

On Saturday, December 18, the 57-year-old actor will celebrate his birthday, albeit a source told the publication that he has no plans to do anything extravagant.

They revealed, ‘He hopes to enjoy a low-key birthday.’ ‘I’m just hanging out.’

‘He’s staying low-key in general,’ the person continued. In any case, that’s the kind of guy he is. For him, [his birthday] is a natural moment for introspection.’

Such introspection comes at the close of a year in which Pitt had both career and personal accomplishments.

This year, the Fight Club actor completed two films with Sandra Bullock, The Lost City and Bullet Train.

Pitt has been in a custody dispute with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie for their two children, who are still minors, since 2016. Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 13, are the children of the former couple.

The source went on to say, ‘The issue with the kids is still a challenging situation.’ ‘It’s a pain.’ It’s just the way it is. His children are the most important to him. However, there are procedures that must be followed.’

Jolie gave birth to Maddox in 2002 and Zahara in 2005, a year after meeting Pitt on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith. He was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time.

Pitt and Jolie then adopted Pax in 2007 and welcomed Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne, their biological children, shortly after. Before Pitt and Jolie married in 2014, he adopted all of the children.

He filed a review of his child custody case with Jolie in September, after a court disqualified a private judge who had given him shared custody.

According to People, the star’s lawyers filed a petition for review with the California Supreme Court after Judge John Ouderkirk’s disqualification effectively nullified the shared custody order.

In July, a California appeals court disqualified the judge, agreeing with Jolie that Ouderkirk failed to disclose his commercial ties to Pitt’s attorneys.

Pitt’s lawyers claimed in his petition that the repeal of Ouderkirk ‘effectively upended California’s constitutionally authorised temporary judging system,’ and that these ‘throws open the door to disqualification challenges at any point during a case, even if the party raising the motion has long been on notice about the alleged grounds for disqualification.’
