In a revelation which may anger his healthy eating fans, Brad Pitt has revealed that he sometimes forces his children to drink Coca Cola for breakfast.

He confessed to resorting to such desperate measures to get the children out of bed, to get them ready for an outing. He revealed his parenting secrets to James Lipton, ahead of an appearance on US television show "Inside the Actor's Studio".

"Listen, I admit there's times like, we gotta get up. Get up! Here's your shoes. Here's your shoes," the Daily Mail quoted the father of six as telling James Lipton.

"Drink this Coke. Drink this Coca Cola. Drink it all. Right now! Drink it! Drink it! Drink it! Just so we could get them up and going," he added.

A single can of Coca Cola may contain 40 to 50g of sugar and daily consumption of a can of the soft drink could lead to a weight gain of 15lb over a year.
