Fury star Brad Pitt covers the November 2014 issue of Details magazine and opened up about his definition of freedom and what he finds solace in, saying that his "soul was stolen by the camera so long ago."

Pitt and wife Angelina Jolie are two of the most photographed people in the world, so how does Pitt deal with this lack of privacy?

"My soul was stolen by the camera so long ago," reflected Pitt. "I don't have to think about it anymore. One definition of freedom is the ability to follow your bliss without being watched, recorded, scrutinized."

The 50-year-old superstar has been acting since the early 1990s, when he got his first big break in the movie Thelma & Louise (1991).

The actor was not raised in Hollywood like his counterpart Jolie, but raised in Oklahoma, where he still finds peace about where he grew up.

"I grew up in the Ozarks — something resembling Mark Twain country. The woods, rivers, bluffs, lakes and caves have all left an indelible mark on me. And I'm quite reverential when it comes to a tree. On my forearm, I had tattooed 94.9 meters (311.4 feet) — the height of the largest sequoia," he said.

Pitt and Jolie — though Hollywood royalty to most — definitely take more of a laidback approach when it comes to the glitz and glam of being A-listers and living in places such as France and Italy while raising their six children: Maddox, 13; Pax, 10; Zahara, 9; Shiloh, 8; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 6. 

With a house full of kids and a demanding schedule, Pitt finds time for himself while riding motorcycles.

"I first rode at age 7 on my cousin's Honda Mini Trail 50. I tried to jump it and ran it into my grandmother's car," he told Details. "He was severely pissed off. My first bike was a Kawi 150 enduro. I won it at age 12 in a contest for selling the most pecan log rolls door-to-door after-school. I crashed it four weeks later."
