Angelina Jolie Prepares For Oscars, Keeps Quiet About BradBy: Rachel Kolman - March 2, 2014
Angelina Jolie is back on the Oscar stage this year, and this time as a presenter. The actress kept it simple and lighthearted this weekend during rehearsals for the big show, joking about her infamous leg bare from the 2012 Oscars. As she finished reading her lines, Jolie joked, “and then I go like this,” thrusting out her leg with a laugh.
Although Jolie did her rehearsal in a sweatshirt and leggings, she smartly chose to pair it with heels to practice walking on the stage. “I used to wear flip-flops,” she said, “but when you do this enough, you learn to wear the shoes you are going to present in.” She talked casually with a group of student filmmakers who’d won the chance to be a part of Hollywood’s biggest night, giving them words of encouragement and telling them to call her “Angie.”
Fiancee Brad Pitt will be accompanying Angelina during Oscar night; Pitt recently won an Independent Spirit Award for his role in 12 Years A Slave. “I’m very proud of him. I am always very proud of him,” Angelina says about Brad’s success. The couple were asked yet again about the possibility of a wedding while signing autographs at the Independent Spirit Awards. “I’m sorry, I can’t,” Angelina responded, while Brad put a finger to his lips and murmured, “Shhh.” It’s clear that the couple want their nuptials to be kept a secret, when ever they may happen.
The couple engaged back in 2012, after Brad’s high profile divorce with Jennifer Aniston. They share six children, both maternal and adopted. The family was recently in Sydney, Australia while Angelina directed her new film Unbroken, and then in London after Valentine’s Day while Brad worked on his World War II drama Fury. Now they’re stateside, preparing for Sunday’s show and well, perhaps to one day ring a wedding bell or two.
