Brad Pitt has made his first red carpet appearance since estranged wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce in September.
Pitt, 52, attended the premiere of his World War II film, “Allied,” on Wednesday, Nov. 9, according to E! News. His co-star Marion Cotillard, who was previously embroiled in cheating rumors with the actor, was also present at the Los Angeles, Calif. event. See photos of the two stars here.
Daily Mail noted that the actor had not been wearing his wedding ring during the event, where he also took the time to sign autographs for fans and thank them for their support. “It's really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here. It's really nice to have all the support,” he said of the love he’s been receiving since news of their divorce hit the media.
Earlier this week, Pitt made his first public appearance since his split with Jolie, with whom he shares Maddox, 15, Shiloh, 10, Zahara, 11, Pax, 12, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. On Monday, Nov. 7, the “World War Z” star hosted a private screening of “Moonlight” with Julia Roberts in Los Angeles, Entertainment Tonight has learned. Pitt’s company, Plan B, produced the highly-acclaimed film, which was directed and written by Barry Jenkins. In September, Pitt was supposed to attend the “Voyage of Time” premiere, but he canceled his appearance at the last minute, citing that he was “currently focused on my family situation.”
Pitt’s red carpet appearance comes after the actor and Jolie met up to sign a new custody agreement for their six children. While the actress previously filed for sole custody of their kids, Pitt has requested for joint custody of their brood, ET reported. On Monday, a rep for Jolie issued a statement regarding the agreement, saying: “In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother's custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest.”
However, the agreement is not permanent, so the conditions might change in the future.
