Following the Washington, D.C., premiere of her new film, In the Land of Blood and Honey, Angelina Jolie joined partner Brad Pitt for a celebratory dinner at Charlie Palmer Steak.

The couple – joined by 12 others, including President Obama’s senior advisor Valerie Jarrett – opted for Palmer’s $35.12 prix fixe Restaurant Week menu, and started with chopped salads of romaine, endive, goat cheese, bacon, cranberry and red wine vinegar. For entrées, Pitt chose the coulotte steak with sweet potato purée and braised greens, while Jolie savored the roasted chicken breast with buttered new potatoes and marjoram jus. Pitt, who was recently injured during a fall, indulged in the dark chocolate pavé with milk chocolate ice cream for dessert, while Jolie passed on the sweets.

According to an onlooker, the party of 14 stayed at the restaurant for two hours, and was “extremely pleasant and gracious to both fans and the staff.”

Angelina Jolie covers Marie Claire’s new January 2012 issue. The director of In the Land of Blood and Honey spoke with the magazine about her first-ever time behind the camera, then segued into more personal topics.

Angelina spoke about how Brad Pitt is more than just the love of her life, and also said she “could end up pregnant” and further expand their family. Additionally, Angelina spoke about how she’s really a homebody and doesn’t have too many female friends.

Angelina Jolie told Marie Claire:
• On her bond with Brad: “[Brad] has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I’ve learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I’m very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn’t have that without him.”

Los Angeles – In the Land of Blood and Honey, Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut about a couple torn apart by the Bosnian War, won the Producers Guild of America Stanley Kramer Award Tuesday.

The award recognizes films or individuals who ‘illuminate provocative social issues in an accessible and elevating fashion.’

The film was ‘an extraordinary film that portrays a complex love story set against the terrors of the Bosnian War, especially towards women,’ the guild’s presidents Hawk Koch and Mark Gordon said in a statement. ‘This film truly embraces the legacy of Stanley Kramer.’
