  • Angelina Jolie shows off post-baby body at premiere

    Angelina Jolie showed off her fabulous post-baby body – and a new tattoo – as she hit the red carpet on Friday in her first public appearance since giving birth to twins, Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon.

    The beautiful actress looked stunning in a simple strapless Versace dress and sophisticated black Sergio Rossi peep toes at the New York premiere of her new movie The Changeling.

    And she took the opportunity to show that she’s already added the birthplace co-ordinates of her twins to the tattoo detailing that of her other four children’s.

    Accompanied by her boyfriend Brad Pitt, the pair looked the picture of unity and happiness, putting paid to rumours of a rift. Stories had also been rife that Angelina was suffering with post-natal depression, but there was no sign the star was troubled as she spoke animatedly about her new film – and her family.

    She told People magazine: ‘Everybody’s great. The babies are getting big and healthy and developing personalities.’

    When asked if she was nervous about her red carpet comeback, she replied: ‘Not nervous as much as I just took a deep breath because it’s been so long. It felt a little strange.’

    And how has she snapped back into shape so soon? ‘I run around with all the other kids, and I’m breastfeeding, which I think is a part of your body’s recovery,’ Jolie said. ‘I feel great [and] feel very happy that they’re healthy.’

    Her new movie, directed by Clint Eastwood and already creating an Oscar buzz, sees her play a woman dealing with the kidnap of her son. She said of her role: ‘Your worst fear is anything happening to your kids. The reason I didn’t want to do the film for a long time … every day I came home, and I was so clinging to my kids. I was grabbing them. And checking them in the night. It scares me.’
