Brad Pitt is comfortable with his oldest son seeing Fury

Washington - While the World War II drama Fury depicts a gruesome look at war through the exploits of a tank crew in Nazi Germany, Brad Pitt feels his 13-year old son, Maddox, can handle the content.

"He's a World War II buff," Pitt told The Associated Press on Wednesday night on the red carpet for the film's world premiere.

Some have criticised the film's stark brutality. Scenes of a soldier's body getting torn up during rapid machine-gun fire or a tank commander decapitated has the made the film a little too real.

The newly married father of six contends that when it comes to what's appropriate for his children, he comes from "another generation".

Check out the trailer of the film, Fury:

"My father would take us to the drive-in as very young kids and we'd see Clint Eastwood movies and kung fu movies," the 50-year old actor said.

He added: "The world is a beautiful place, but it's also a very violent place. We talk about it afterward, so I'm not so opposed."

On the subject of family, Pitt was amused at the notion that he and George Clooney had a pact that they would both get married. Pitt married longtime love Angelina Jolie earlier this year, and Clooney tied the knot in September.

Pitt laughed at the theory before responding: "We did it for the right reasons."
