The reason Jolie, 35, played hooky? To support her man, Brad Pitt, across the country in L.A.! Smooth-faced and dapper in a Tom Ford suit, Pitt, 47, hit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for the premiere of his film "The Tree of Life," which just won the top prize at the Cannes Film Fest.
Jolie was at Pitt's side in a jaw-dropping new look: a diaphonous, bright red one-shoulder gown by Jenny Packham, accented with Tiffany jewelry and Stuart Weitzman heels.
The duo caused such pandemonium upon their arrival that Pitt's costar, Jessica Chastain, halted her interviews because of the overcrowded red carpet.
Will Pitt and Jolie's six kids become actors like their world-famous parents?
"Listen, I just want them to do whatever they want," Pitt told reporters. "To follow their bliss, whatever makes them happy!"
