    Angelina Jolie. Six beautiful kids. International movie star. Who wouldn't want to be Brad Pitt, right?

    Well, good friend Matt Damon seemed to indicate he was slightly interested while appearing on Tuesday's Today to promote his new movie, Elysium.

    Kinda, sorta.

    "I spend my life trying to be like Brad Pitt," the Oscar winner said.

    "A lot of us do, actually," replied Today cohost Matt Lauer.

    "I know!" exclaimed Damon.

    To a point, of course.

    After all, Damon recently shared with Esquire that he feels bad for his pal and Ocean's costar, who is definitely under the celebrity microscope more than other famous faces, including his own.

    "The fact that here in New York, I can walk my kids to school and not be hounded by photographers, and that was it," explained Damon about what he told the magazine after Lauer suggested that Pitt might be envious of him.

    "What else is he going to be jealous of?" Damon said with a laugh. "Yeah, he's jealous of me."
