Brad Pitt isn't afraid of getting old. Then again, if we looked like this hunky father of six, we wouldn't be either!

At Monday night's premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in L.A., Pitt--who's approaching his 45th birthday-- told Extra he's definitely looking forward to his golden years.

"I like wisdom that comes with age," Pitt said in an interview airing tonight. "I wouldn't trade it for youth any day."

In the upcoming film, which is based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pitt plays a man who is born old and gets younger as the film progresses. It required not only a lot of makeup, but tons of patience.

"My mornings started very early," Pitt recalled. "Getting up at 3 in the morning and sitting in the chair for four or five hours."

Brad also cleared up the rumor that Angelina Jolie presented him with a $12,000 motorcycle, calling the reports, "not true at all."

Ever the jokester, Brad recently appeared on pal Ellen DeGeneres's show, encouraging her to send Chippendales to the office of his good friend and fellow prankster George Clooney--which she did.

Of his little practical joke, Pitt said, "It's a pre-emptive strike. It's coming anyway. You got to get something." Asked about Clooney's look-a-like facial hair, Pitt replied, "He's a handsome dude, what can I tell you? I can't get this guy out of my slipstream. I get a mustache. He gets a mustache."

It seems like Pitt had warm words for everybody, including his Interview With a Vampire co-star Tom Cruise. When asked if he'd ever work with the Mission Impossible star again, Pitt said, "Of course. He's a friend of mine. He's a strong one, that guy...I loved what he did in Tropic Thunder. The ending is hilarious."
