  • We’ve never been sure how well Angelina Jolie gets on with Brad Pitt’s parents, but last night they were all smiles at the premiere of her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey. So could we be hearing wedding bells soon?

    We’ve never been sure how well Angelina Jolie gets on with her in-laws and there have been reports of frosty relations over the years.

    But last night she looked wonderfully relaxed with Brad Pitt’s parents at the premiere of new film, In the Land of Blood and Honey.

    The movie marks Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut and it seems that Bill and Jane Pitt were out to support the mother of their grandchildren.

    There were rumours that the Pitts senior still preferred Brad’s ex, Jennifer Aniston. But if Bill and Jane still had reservations about Angelina they did a good job of hiding them as the three laughed and joked on the red carpet.


    Mother of six (yes, six! phew) Angelina Jolie, 36, recently spoke on US TV about the pressure she feels to wed.

    Angelina revealed in an interview with Nightline, scheduled to be shown this evening, that Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne all want her to marry Brad Pitt, 47.

    ‘The kids asked me the other day and I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a big cake,’ said Angelina. ‘They see movies that have the people getting married in the movies or somebody’s, you know, the happily ever after. Shrek and Fiona are married.’

    ‘We’ve explained to them that our commitment when we decided to start a family was the greatest commitment you could possibly have. Once you have six children, you’re…you’re committed.’

    You can say that again!
