Brad Pitt Parties Solo

Is Brad Pitt needing his personal space these days?

Pitt’s reverse-aging epic, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, had its German premiere in Berlin last night, and afterward the 45-year-old Fight Club star hit up a swank after-party at Kaisersaal at Potsdamer Platz—without his baby mama, Angelina Jolie.


Maybe Jolie, 33, was busy taking care of the couple’s ever-expanding brood?

Despite—or perhaps because of—his lady-love’s absence, Pitt managed to enjoy himself at the soiree, schmoozing with guests and posing for pictures with German actress Luis Helm, Just Jared reports.

Pitt was in a less festive mood at the premiere itself, morbidly reflecting on his eventual demise for the benefit of the press.

“I’m not so afraid of getting old, I’m more afraid of how I’ll go,” Pitt revealed to reporters, according to Reuters. “Fire and tight spaces don’t appeal. A shark would be interesting.”

Never mind the shark, Brad.  Given Angie’s penchant for firearms, you might meet your fate a little closer to home if you keep leaving her with the kids while you party down with German actresses.
