Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Step Out at Palm Springs International Film Festival (PHOTOS)
Although Brad had his gal by his side, he did needed extra help getting down the red carpet. The Moneyball actor was snapped carrying a cane during the festivities. He told reporters the reason behind his new companion, saying:
"I was carrying my daughter [Vivienne] down the hill and I slipped. It was either her or me."
According to People, Pitt took a tumble an injured his ACL, a ligament in the knee that connects the femur to the tibia.
"I like the cane," she told the press, adding that the injury hasn't slowed him down much at all. "He's not that kind of guy. He does everything still."
Despite his injury, Brad enjoyed his time at the event. Not only was he greeted by applause upon entering the theater, but Brad was seen joking around backstage with Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney while gal pals Angie and Stacy Keibler hung out in the audience.
Brad and Angie boarded a private jet soon after the ceremony had ended -- no doubt to see their six children waiting at home!
