  • Angelina jets into Iraq while Brad reveals sex with his other half is 'trade secret'

    Angelina Jolie is on her latest mission to war-torn Iraq on a goodwill mission as part of her UN ambassador role – and has left Brad Pitt behind, holding their (six) babies.


    While the actress is visiting displaced families effected by the war in Iraq, dressed down in a baseball cap and bullet-proof vest, her man Brad is back in Los Angeles caring for their brood.

    Pitt chose to bow out of last night’s UK premiere of his latest flick, Inglourious Basterds, without Angelina by his side.

    The actress is once again hoping to raise the profile of refugees in the middle-eastern country who have lost their homes and families.

    Speaking to one family living in a refugee camp north west of Baghdad, Angelina said: ‘I want to come back and find you in a better place and in a different situation.

    ‘You need help not because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq.’

    Meanwhile, Brad has (semi) lifted the lid on life with his super-star partner and their ever-expanding brood.

    When quizzed about the star couple’s giant bed and the whole family diving into it, Brad confessed: ‘Yes we have a three-metre-wide bed, but even that isn’t big enough. They all come crawling in in the morning. It’s just about surviving. We all have sleep deprivation.’

    And when questioned about whether the duo find space for that all-important alone time between the sheets, Brad smoothly side-stepped the question, replying: ‘Yes we make time for ourselves. It’s very important for every relationship. But that’s a trade secret!’
