Angelina Jolie Says She And Brad Pitt Are 'Dorky' Parents
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are Hollywood veterans, who also happen to be kind of "dorky." In an interview with WSJ. Magazine, Jolie discusses writing, directing and starring in her new film "By the Sea" and being a parent alongside her husband, Brad Pitt. Pitt, who is her "By the Sea" co-star, was also interviewed and said his wife starts out a day off by taking the kids out. "This is the most important 'to do' of the day," Pitt said. "No matter how tired she might be, she plans outings for each and all.  She has an incredible knack for inventing crazy experiences for them, something new, something fresh. I may be the bigger goof of the pair, but she invents the stage."

"We wake up, we make breakfast. In our domestic life, we’re Mom and Dad," she said. "And often we’re dorky Mo...

Huffington Post - about 5 years
LONDON — Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stepped out together Sunday at the premiere of zombie thriller "World War Z" – Jolie's first public appearance since announcing last month that she had undergone a double mastectomy. The couple walked a black, rather than red, carpet at the world premiere Sunday of the big-budget film, which stars Pitt as a United Nations employee battling to save the world from a zombie apocalypse. The pair wore complementary black outfits as they signed autographs for fans in Leicester Square. Jolie told reporters she felt great, and had "been very happy to see the discussion of women's health expanded" by her announcement. Jolie revealed last month in an op-ed piece for The New York Times that she had had her breasts removed after discovering she has an inherited genetic mutation that puts her at high risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Jolie's mother Marcheline Bertrand died from ovarian cancer at 56, and the actress' aunt died of...
