Brad Pitt Covers for Sick Angelina Jolie at 'Unbroken' Event!

Brad Pitt poses with cinematographer Roger Deakins and actor Josh Brolin while attending the Unbroken Roger Deakins Image Exhibition held at the AMC Century City on Sunday (December 14) in Los Angeles.

The 50-year-old actor attended the event to cover for his wife Angelina Jolie, who directed the movie and had to cancel her appearance at all events this weekend due to a mild bout of chicken pox.

Earlier in the day, a brunch was held to celebrate the new movie and Chris Martin sang the song he wrote for the film.

    Ussually I am a very nice person. But after Reading the Unbroken review from david Denby at The New Yorker I just have to say : Fuck you David Denby. Really I would be ashamed to write a review like that.

    .I may be in minority BUT I hope AJ still makes Cleopatra. Based on her past interviews, her Cleo is different from that of E. Taylor. AJ’s focus is more on the leadership, and other qualities of Cleo, NOT to objectify her. Remember, she wants to make film that delivers a profound message. AJ may have seen something new in her that she wants to explore and I am very interested in that… on what’s her take on that. Whatever controversy that this film has, I know this will pass. If this film is really meant for her, everything will turn out fine. So hope for the best.

    .You know, those who had the chance to work with & work for AJ would love to do it again. They only have good words to say about her because of her DISCIPLINE, WORK ETHICS & PROFESSIONALISM. She may be intimidating because of how big her status is or how talented, popular, beautiful & powerful she is BUT when they get to know her, they always say she is humble & takes care of everyone and that makes their working situation easier… no matter how difficult their scenes were. She has NO ego & treats everyone equally & with respect, be the crews, staff or actors.

    More than anything else, they may feel lucky & honored that one time of their career or life they had longer interaction with her, not just casually BUT professionally and formed friendship with her somehow. They would carry this memory of this rare opportunity to wherever they go. It becomes their pride & joy
    that AJ know them more than just an acquaintance. And many would also
    wish to have the chance as they did.

    I want her to make it if she does…….if she does she has a vision and I trust her judgment…… bring it on…….and at this point, she has worked on it for years and if this is going to be her ‘big role’ as a last acting hurrah, so be it, I am all in.

  • Dawne

    You’d be hard pressed to discover a more unbelievable tale than the one found in Angelina Jolie’s second directorial effort, Unbroken. That the events of the film are true is gob-smacking………………

    and as such should put paid to any sniffy comments made by cynical hacks.

    Just moved this from the other thread
    Guys who email lainey the email between brad & pascal the one he is furious abt the end cut, now she is calling brad a brat & twist the meaning of the email please stop emailing this woman anything abt the JP she really hate the JP

  • busted

    Not sure if he “covered” for Angie. I’m sure he would have attended too. But I like the idea of it anyway.

  • Dawne

    He must feel so disappointed for her…….knowing what has gone into her Unbroken and the culmination being ruined for her. If she wasn’t contagious, she would have shown up anyway knowing her moxy…… but she wouldn’t want to give it to anyone else.

  • busted

    Some of the reviews act as if Angie wrote the story and created the character of Louis. This is his life. And just because it is so extraordinary they are trying to find fault. I guess their lives are spent talking about people that are doing something greater than just talking about people

  • JPFamily

    Brad looks great, and awww such a real shame for Angie to miss her big night.

    It will still be a wonderful event, in memory and in tribute to the amazing Louie, and all the hard work from her and everyone associated with Unbroken.

    Just reposting this as the pics are too gorgeous to miss, click link.

  • JPFamily

    Yay for the good news, so happy and proud of Angie and Brad and everyone involved in their movies.
    Ugh at the inclusion, yet again of a certain loser.
    Ugh again at Jack missing out, he deserves a nom too.

  • Love Conquers All

    Good morning JP fans. Sorry guys that I haven’t been posting around. I had a family emergency this past Tuesday, my uncle died of brain cancer and he was my favorite uncle that I always could talk to. I miss him dearly and rest his soul. Right now I’m glad to back. :)

  • Phool

    Please accept My Condolance to you on your uncles passing, you and his family are in my prayers

  • JPFamily

    Sorry for your loss, thinking of you and yours.
    God bless and take care.

  • JPFamily

    Very true!

  • wika

    Best part: unbroken gets a lot of nods. Please, one weak best actress nominee can’t beat all the nods unbroken is getting. All the attention that will divert away from ticky hehehe not that anyone particularly cares about her in the first place

  • bap


  • bap

    Sorry Lurker But they do! Congratulations to Dame Angelina and Brad!

  • Love Conquers All

    Thanks to everyone with the well wishes and condolences to my uncle, family. I really appreciate everyone here, ya’ll the best.

  • JPFamily

    Great pic of Chris and the Unbroken guys from yesterday’s event.

  • bap

    Good picture!

  • Love Conquers All

    I really hope the Best actress Oscar line-up will look like this:

    Marion Cotillard – Two Days, One Night

    Felicity Jones – The Theory of Everything

    Julianne Moore – Still Alice

    Rosamund Pike – Gone Girl

    Reese Witherspoon – Wild

    I’m hoping Cotillard takes that last spot away from Ticky because if anyone have seen the Two Days, One Night, it’s more deserving than Crack.

    5 Minutes With Jack O’Connell

    Angelina Jolie’s protégé


    Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, Unbroken, is worth the hype (see her talk about it here). The film chronicles the epic true-life story of Louis Zamperini, an American Olympic distance runner and war hero who survived horrific ordeals during World War II.

    And the actor she chose to take on the role? Derby-born newcomer, Jack O’Connell.

    Having made a name for himself in a handful of smaller projects (including Shane Meadows’ gritty Brit drama, This Is England, and E4′s Skins), the actor’s effervescent energy manifests itself with fiery conviction onscreen.

    We grabbed five minutes with the man all of Hollywood has its eyes on right now.

    ELLE: How did you feel when you found out that you were going to be working with Angelina Jolie?

    Jack O’Connell: If you’re going to be taken seriously, you have to shake off that star-struck mentality early on. I felt a similar sense of awe around Sir Michael Caine and Judi Dench, but you have a job to do, and if I want to keep acting, I wouldn’t be doing myself any favours by getting wrapped up in that.

    ELLE: So what were your first impressions of her?

    Jack O’Connell: She actually seemed a bit nervous! It made the whole thing more normal. She’s very caring; she’s got this huge heart. So, very quickly the job became a personal investment.

    ELLE: Did she have any advice for you?

    Jack O’Connell: Yes, she is full of advice. She gave me relationship advice! She was always there and she’s done a lot for me, but I never really wanted to pick her brains too much.

    ELLE: Would you ever follow in Angelina’s footsteps: acting then directing?

    Jack O’Connell: I have a few more strings to my bow. [Laughs] I’m a jack-of-all-trades. Her example is definitely one that I consider an inspiration in terms of what I want to achieve. Yes, there is a long-term plan.

    ELLE: Have the Oscars crossed your mind?

    Jack O’Connell: When I was filming and feeling my worst, there were times when the idea of Oscar recognition motivated me, but that doesn’t make the film any more important. It does represent an element of validation – because the job and the task at hand are so heartfelt and important for us – so, for anyone to praise that, we’re going to take it straight to heart.

    ELLE: It’s an epic film. Have you thought about what kind of fame it is going to propel you to?

    Jack O’Connell: I mean it’s been so gradual; I’ve been eased into it with Skins and my TV work prior to that, so I feel a bit seamless about it. I know I like my privacy, but I also love the job I do and they go hand in hand. I received priceless advice from Brad [Pitt] to just remain focused and keep looking forward. Whatever I did isn’t going to define me; it’s what I choose to do next.

    ELLE: Would you rather play a love interest or a raving psychopath?

    Jack O’Connell: I’d go for the psycho. I feel up for it and youthful.

    ELLE: If you could go back in time and steal any film role, what would it be?

    Jack O’Connell: I really like Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest; I would have loved to have done that.

    ELLE: He’s a bit of a psycho in that…

    Jack O’Connell: He is a bit of a psycho, but it was his; he put such a stamp on it. So much so, that I probably wouldn’t benefit anyone by doing that.

    ELLE: Who would you love to work with?

    Jack O’Connell: Matthew McConaughey has inspired me a lot recently; he’s great. I regard him as royalty. I love watching him.

    ELLE: If you weren’t an actor what would you want to do? Did you have a plan b?

    Jack O’Connell: If I had really failed at acting, I’d be a missionary somewhere, just helping. That’s the only thing that I think could stimulate me.

  • wika

    “She is full of advice” lol she’s such a mother!! She and Brad. They’re both so nurturing! also I wonder what relationship advice she gave to jack….

  • Tweet Angie

    If they see Marion´s movie, Ticky is fucked

  • Guest

    God forbid they let the cast of the movie shine for 1 minute. It all has to be about Brangelina. I would’ve thought after seeing how much making herself the center of the promotion set back the movie, an got her ridiculed as a camp event she would draw back, but no. She will continue with the “look at my perfect family” tactic, even sending her kids to the premiere. Wow she’s really losing her touch.

  • Bizzydizzy

    So wait… What was unbroken , Maleficent & fury nominated for ?

  • Tweet Angie

    My condolences

  • Felinelilly

    I’m going to sound like an idiot right about now but I’m drawing a blank, what are the BFCA awards? I don’t care about awards but since a certain someone always has to be associated with everything Brad and Angelina do, hell YEAH congratulations to Angelina and Brad, Unbroken, Maleficent, Selma and Fury! GO MARION for lead actress!
