As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie gazed adoringly at each other and held hands on the red carpet for their latest film, By The Sea, it was clear that the pair is more in love than ever. And if that weren’t proof enough, the Hollywood power couple recently spoke about their mutual admiration and devotion in the wake of Angelina’s decision to have her ovaries removed. The duo was the picture of A-list perfection at the Directors Guild of America theatres in New York on Tuesday evening (Nov. 3).
Angelina, 40, was stunning in a vintage-style powder blue dress by Luisa Beccaria that she cinched in at the waist with a metallic gold woven belt. A pair of nude pointed heels and a tan clutch bag completed her look.
Also kitted out in blue was husband Brad, who went semi-casual in a dark top, waistcoat, jeans and blazer. The actor finished the outfit with a tweed flat cap and charcoal grey scarf.
By The Sea is the first film together for the Jolie-Pitts since they co-starred in Mr. And Mrs. Smith, the action romance on which they met.
Their latest collaboration, directed by Angelina, revolves around a couple struggling to keep their marriage together – which couldn’t be further from reality for the movie stars.
In an interview with The Today Show, Angelina opened up about her decision to have her ovaries removed in March after a blood test showed she could have signs of early-stage ovarian cancer, just two years after she underwent a double mastectomy.
“I knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn’t something where I was gonna feel less of a woman because my husband wasn’t gonna let that happen,’’ Angelina said. “To face these issues together and speak about them and talk about what it is to be human, I think can be a beautiful thing.
Brad also praised Angelina for the way she had handled her surgeries: “There was no vanity to my wife’s approach. It was mature. ‘This is our life and we’re gonna make the best of it.’ There was a strength in that. It was just another of those things in life that makes you tighter, and she was doing it for the kids, and she was doing it for her family so we could be together.”
