Angelina Jolie & Brad PittAngelina Jolie has said award shows are much more fun these days because she can hit the red carpet with partner Brad Pitt.

Angelina was nominated in the Best Actress category at last night’s Screen Actors Guild Award and explained to E! on her way into the event: “We’ve been [going to award shows] together for four years - it’s always nice.

“I don’t think I’d want to be doing it alone. It’s nice to be doing it with your best friend … and have a laugh in the middle of the show.”

She added that the couple’s six children also help Mum and Dad prepare for their big moment on the red carpet: “They play, they get their nails done, they run around.

“[But] most of the time, they’re a bit bored…. They don’t find it that interesting.”
