Pitt’s Surprise Holiday Visit

On Wednesday, just days after celebrating the holidays in Namibia, Africa, the couple made an impromptu stop at the St. John’s Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center in Springfield, Mo., the town where Pitt grew up.

“They called a little bit ahead, about an hour ahead, and requested to tour the pediatric center,” hospital spokesperson Cora Scott said Thursday. “They stayed about 45 minutes. It was a very nice visit.”

Last year, Pitt and Jolie, along with Pitt’s brother and sister and their families, donated $1 million to St. John’s Foundation for Community Health and dedicated the pediatric cancer center to Pitt’s mother, Jane.

“Jane Pitt is a gem in our community,” Scott said. “She’s a very wonderful woman who cares so very much about the well being of children.”

Brad on His Family’s Thanksgiving Plans

“Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with Brad Pitt, who flew in from Budapest to attend the NYC premiere of his animated comedy “Megamind” — and the jet-setter talked about where the Jolie-Pitt clan plans to spend Thanksgiving.

“I’m not really sure where we’ll be for it, but yeah, it’ll be overseas. We’ll whip up a turkey somewhere,” Pitt laughed. They did celebrate Halloween a few days ago, and Pitt said he dressed up. “I was sort of a bunny.”
He, Angelina Jolie and their six kids are pretty used to traveling around. “We are like a military mobile unit.” Brad was excited for his two sons, Maddox and Pax, to see “Megamind,” in which Pitt voices Metro Man, the superhero of the film, who also wants to be a singer.

Does Pitt sing for his family? “Oh no! I want them to be influenced by a proper singer. That’s one talent I do not have.”

Angelina Jolie: Brad Pitt Is The Only Person I Talk To

Angelina Jolie is in Pakistan, where she has met with the Prime Minister in her role as UNHCR ambassador. On Wednesday she spoke with CNN’s Sanjay Gupta via satellite about the flood victims and how she deals with the tragedy she sees.

“I’ll talk to my family,” she said. “I talk to Brad; he wants to know as much as he can about these issues and every trip. He’s been here as well, he came with me after the earthquake. But I don’t know, I don’t have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to.”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt win damages over tabloid claim

Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie accepted an undisclosed amount of damages on Thursday after suing a British tabloid newspaper which had claimed they were separating.
In January, the News of the World reported the couple planned to part and had agreed on custody of their six children and the division of their assets estimated by the newspaper to be 205 million pounds ($310 million).
The couple said the claims were false and demanded a retraction of the story and an apology.
Solicitor-advocate Keith Schilling told the High Court in London that News Group Newspapers now accepted that each of the allegations was “false and intrusive,” the Press Association reported.
The newspaper agreed to publish an apology and pay the couple costs and damages, which they intend to donate to their charity the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

Angelina talks Brad

Yes, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt can work a red carpet like no other star couple. But at home with six kids all under the age of 9, the pair are content just to be Mom and Dad. “Brad’s an extraordinary father,” Jolie, 35, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “We have each other’s backs.”
The teamwork of the actress and Pitt, 46, comes in handy when dealing with settling differences between kids Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, Shiloh, 4, and 2-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, says Jolie. “They can’t go behind one [parent] to the other,” she says. “Not one of us is softer than the other.”
The actress, whose new political thriller Salt opens Friday, also talks about tackling her own stunts in the film. “I happen to like heights, so we found moments where I can use that,” she says.
One thing that does scare her: the idea of her kids becoming teenagers.
“I break out into a sweat at just the thought.”
