(Newser) – As Hollywood's favorite power couple makes the rounds to plug their respective movies, interviewers just can't seem to get enough about the travails of raising six kids. Brad Pitt tells Oprah in an interview to air tomorrow that daughter Shiloh wants to be called John and that even mundane trips to the mall are logistical nightmares, People reports. Angelina Jolie, meanwhile, breaks the news that breastfeeding twins is a little tricky, notes US Magazine.

Pitt: Shiloh, 3, "only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it's a Peter Pan thing." On traveling: "It's like a half-an-hour just to get everyone buckled in and make sure they've got their snacks. Angie's militant about it. Thank God, because I'm always forgetting something."
Jolie: (Simultaneous breastfeeding) is a lot harder than it looks in the books. I did that a few times, but (mostly) I would take turns." She weaned them at 3 months.
