Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made the Oscars a family affair, bringing the senior Pitts – Jane and Bill – to the event.
“They’re amazing,” Angelia told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush on Sunday’s red carpet of Brad’s folks, who celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary later this year.
Best Actor Oscar nominee Brad (for “Moneyball”) said his parents’ loving – and long – relationship has been an inspiration.
“I think to have that stability in your life gives you a peace and a calm that allows you to go out and seek the things that interest you and I take great value in it,” Brad told Billy on the red carpet. “I’m glad they could be here tonight.”
It’s well known that Brad and Angelina’s children have brought up marriage to their folks, but Brad told Billy his own parents don’t put pressure on the couple to tie the knot.
“No, mom and dad know we’re already, you know (points to heart), we’re married here,” Brad said.
And mom Jane Pitt expressed the same sentiment when Billy asked her the same question.
“Whatever they want to do,” she told Billy. “We will support them – whatever they do.”
Angelina has said Jane and Bill are part of her support system, and they told Billy they love her.
“We’re proud of her and we help her all we can,” Bill told Billy.
“We love her very much,” Jane added.
