Actress Angelina Jolie, in Tokyo for the weekend opening of action thriller Salt brushed off rumours about her shaky relations with Brad Pitt.
“He was just a wonderful father,” she said Tuesday of Pitt, during work on the film, in which she plays a tough spy. He often brought the children to the set, she recalled.
“They played with fake blood, and they found mommy very strange in her different hair,” she said.
Last week, Pitt and Jolie accepted undisclosed damages in London’s High Court to settle a privacy claim against a British tabloid that had reported in January that they were planning to split.
Asked about her ability to work and maintain a happy family, Jolie told reporters at a Tokyo hotel, “Brad is the word that makes it possible.” Jolie, who arrived Monday, brought four of the children along on the Japan trip.
They have already spent some time shopping for toys inspired by Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki’s animation characters Ponyo and Totoro, she said.
