Despite rumours he wouldn't be doing any promo for the film in the wake of his divorce, Brad Pitt turned out and seemed in good spirits at the LA Allied premiere...
Brad Pitt made a surprise appearance at the LA premiere of his new film Allied last night, breaking his silence on his divorce from Angelina Jolie for the first time.
The 52-year-old has had to endure a very public split from Angelina over the past few months, which can’t have been easy. And he would have been forgiven for looking a little downcast for his first public appearance since the couple’s announcement.
But as he hit up the red carpet, looking dapper in a black suit and working a fresh new shorter ‘do, Brad actually seemed in surprisingly high spirits, and even took the time to snap a couple of fan selfies as he laughed with the crowd.
And instead of staying schtum about his split from Ange, which the couple announced in September, the By The Sea actor actually opened up about what he’s been going through.
Praising his fans, he told E! News: ‘It’s really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here. It’s really nice to have all the support.’
Brad, who wasn’t wearing his wedding ring, was joined by Marion Cotillard to promote their new WWII drama – despite claims he might not be doing any promotional work surrounding the film due to his divorce.
The actor’s appearance also came hours after it was reported that Brad was cleared by the Department Of Children And Family Services of child abuse, according to TMZ.
It was also announced this week that Angelina had been granted sole custody of the couple’s six children, with Brad allowed visitation rights – however, it’s being reported that Brad is preparing to ramp up for a custody battle.
We’re just pleased to see Brad looking happy and healthy after what must have been a seriously tough few months. Good on you, BP.
