Brad Pitt made his maiden public appearance since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce. The 52-year-old actor was spotted on Monday night at a private screening of Moonlight with friend Julia Roberts. The actor, who is one of the producers, appeared to be in high spirits as he posed for a shot with Roberts, Moonlight star Trevante Rhodes, and writer/director Barry Jenkins. Pitt also took to the podium with Roberts to speak about
the highly-acclaimed film.
This was the first time Pitt came out post-split, earlier he had cancelled his appearance at the Voyage of Time premiere in late September, announcing that he was “currently focused on my family situation.” Pitt’s outing comes one day after a representative for Jolie released a new statement saying that the former couple have reached a legal agreement about the custody of their six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
The voluntary agreement calls for the former couple’s six children, who range in ages from 8 to 15, to continue to have “therapeutic visits” with Pitt for the time being. It is unclear what therapeutic visits entailed, and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s representatives said they could not provide additional details.
Jolie-Pitt filed for divorce in September, days after Pitt was involved in a disturbance during a private flight with his family. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakup, and an attorney said at the time she filed for divorce “for the health of the family.” The actors were married for two years and together for 12 years after becoming close while filming 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
