Personal Quote:

[on media comparisons between Megan Fox and his daughter Angelina Jolie Pitt] They're both very beautiful and they're both kind of sexy girls. Maybe Megan will start doing the things that Angie is so well known for. Angie is known for helping with kids and for her concern for others. I think that would be wonderful for all of the kids if Megan were to do the same. See more »
