Angelina Jolie backing Brad for Best Actor all the way

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will officially be crowned king and queen of Hollywood if they both win their Best Actress and Best Actor nominations at this year's Oscars – but Angelina says she won't cry if she doesn't win.

The Changeling star is more concerned about her beau Brad picking up the gong.

The actress said: 'I'm rooting for Brad,' and insisted she doesn't like watching herself on screen, but 'I love to watch Brad's movies'.


Jolie won a coveted Academy Award in 2000 for her supporting role in Girl, Interrupted.

On picking up such prestigious honours, she told Nightline: 'I feel, for an actress, if you've ever done that in your career, it's nice.

'[But] many people have had great careers and never won. I think you have to have your head around you to understand what certain things are, as much as they're nice ... it shouldn't make you feel differently about your work.'

The A-list actress also hinted again at putting her career on the backburner for her role of motherhood.

'I don't want to wake up one day and say I had my career that expanded so much longer and I did that many more films, and miss out on all those other things in life,' she said.

Her priorities, she insists, are: 'I'd say kids first ... [being a] woman to Brad and then my work internationally and being a kind of ... trying to educate myself and trying to learn about the world and ... trying to do some good things while I'm alive.'
