Brad Pitt has revealed that despite the recent announcement of his engagement to Angelina Jolie they have not set a date yet.
While it was widely rumored Brad Pitt planned to wed Angelina Jolie this year, at the photocall for new film Killing Them Softly he was quick to dispel talk.
“We truly have no date. I’m still hoping we’ll figure out our marriage equality in the States before then,” Brad Pitt, 48, said referring to the debate in the US over same sex marriage.
And he hinted that part of the reason may lay in Angelina Jolie’s filming commitments.
When Brad Pitt was asked about the whereabouts of Angelina Jolie, he explained she was away preparing for a new film role.
Angelina Jolie was expected to wow the red carpet last night at the gala screening of Brad Pitt’s film Killing Them Softly, which premieres today.
Brad Pitt looked the epitome of cool as he showed up in a youthful look, which consisted of light summer suit, which he matched with a white T-shirt and white pumps.
He showed off his longer hair style, which has now grown to just above his shoulders, while he wore his facial hair in a goatee style.
Brad Pitt drew the crowds as he showed up in his effortless style while hordes of fans tried to get a glimpse of the actor.
The actor happily posed for photographs as he arrived in his chauffeur driven car while he wore sunglasses on his face.
Brad Pitt smiled during the photo call, before he was spotted taking a break as he chatted to friends.
It marked a rare break for Brad Pitt from his brood, as he stepped out minus partner Angelina Jolie and their six children.
But he obviously wanted to get to work promoting the Andrew Dominick film, in which he will play a contract killer alongside stars including Scoot McNairy, Ray Liotta, Vince Curatola, and Ben Mendelson.
Although Brad Pitt said he wasn’t troubled by violence in movies.
The actor was speaking at a press conference after the world premiere screening of the film and said that violence is an accepted part of the gangster world and noted that violence goes hand in hand with crime.
Brad Pitt said he would have little problem with his children watching violent movies when they’re older.
“I would find playing a racist more unsettling than playing someone who shoots someone in the face,” he declared.
“We live in such a violent world,” Brad Pitt said and then asked people who love hamburgers to think about the killing involved in creating that burger.
“I don’t see a world without violence,” he added.
The film Killing Them Softly suggests that murder in a gangland setting is acceptable. One of the movie’s key moments has Brad Pitt and a Mob lawyer, played by Richard Jenkins, discussing the execution of some robbers as a simple business transaction.
Indeed one line in the film is sure to become much quoted. Brad Pitt’s character says to Richard Jenkins: “America’s not a country, it’s just a business.”
Killing Them Softly was having its gala screening in Cannes tonight.
It uses the gangster genre, and humor, to make larger points, not always successfully, about the state of the economy.
