First talks of retirement, now a cane…. What’s going on with Brad Pitt?! No, it’s not old age, the Moneyball star explains that his new accessory isn’t a fashion statement, but a necessity after a recent injury he sustained trying to protect his 3-year-old daughter, Vivienne.
“I was carrying my daughter down the hill and I slipped,” Pitt, 48, told reporters at Saturday’s (January 7) 23rd International Palm Springs Film Festival. “It was either her or me.”
“Vivie’s okay,” says Pitt’s longtime love, Angelina Jolie, who admits that she’s a fan of the cane.
“I like the cane,” said Angie, adding that the injury hasn’t slowed Brad down at all. “He’s not that kind of guy. He does everything still.”
This isn’t the first time that Brad or Angelina has gotten hurt protecting one of their children though.
“I think all parents get injured in the line of fire,” says Jolie. “When Maddox was young, I fell and hurt my elbow. It’s a pretty common occurrence.”
Even more common with six kids!
