Angelina Jolie and paramour Brad Pitt hit the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of their latest joint effort, “A Mighty Heart,” which focuses on Mariane Pearl, played by Jolie, as she weathers the abduction and murder of her husband, American journalist Daniel Pearl, in 2002.
Jolie was herself pregnant during the planning of the film.
“I remember thinking, ‘I can’t imagine at this time not having the father with me, and being concerned for his life, and trying to eat, and trying to remember to get some sleep, and take a deep breath,” she said.
“As a woman it just made me so much more connected to her.”
