Brad and Angie: Why This Movie Means So Much to Us

The world’s most beautiful couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, touched down in Cannes to thousands of fans – but only “Extra” was with them every step of the way!

The gorgeous pair set off a photo frenzy as they strolled the red carpet to promote their new movie, “A Mighty Heart.”

Looking drop-dead gorgeous with slicked-back hair, suave Brad walked arm-in-arm with Angie to make the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival.

They held hands and he gave her a tender, loving touch before they parted ways to sign autographs.

When Angie talked about their moving new drama with “Extra,” it left an enthralled Brad totally tongue-tied!

The film tells the story of slain journalist Daniel Pearl and his wife Mariane, who was left to raise her unborn child when Daniel was killed in Pakistan.

Angelina plays Mariane, and she told us it was a poignant experience for her.

“She was five-and-a-half months pregnant, and I was going through that,” Angie explained. “I remember being six months pregnant and thinking, ‘I can’t imagine not having the father with me.’”

Brad co-produced the film with his production company Plan B, and he says the movie touched the father in him.

“I look at my kids and realize that they will inherit this world,” Brad said. “We want to do everything we can to throw our weight in and make it a little better.”
