They waited for the last minute to arrive but Hollywood Royalty, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally made their appearance on the red carpet at the 84th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday (February 26) held at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California.
The ‘Moneyball‘ actor who is nominated tonight for “Best Actor” and the ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ director looked superb. Jolie shocked in a strapless high thigh split Atelier Versace black velvet gown. She kept her makeup and hair simple.
He’s nominated for an Oscar for his role in ‘Moneyball‘ and now Brad Pitt is featured on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter as he discusses battling depression in the 90′s and the possibility of finally marrying Angelina Jolie.
Talking candidly about being depressed in the late 90′s Pitt said, “I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s: I was hiding out from the celebrity thing; I was smoking way too much dope; I was sitting on the couch and just turning into a doughnut; and I really got irritated with myself.”
“I got to: ‘What’s the point? I know better than this.’ I used to deal with depression, but I don’t now, not this decade — maybe last decade. But that’s also figuring out who you are. I see it as a great education, as one of the seasons or a semester: ‘This semester I was majoring in depression.’ I was doing the same thing every night and numbing myself to sleep — the same routine: Couldn’t wait to get home and hide out. But that feeling of unease was growing and one night I just said, ‘This is a waste,’” he explained.
As for if he will finally wed Jolie, Brad said, ”We’d actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”
