Monday night was a family affair for Angelina Jolie as the star hit the red carpet for her NYC directorial and screenwriting debut of In the Land of Blood and Honey, alongside husband Brad Pitt and his parents Jane & Bill. Hopefully, now we can all put to all those pesky rumors that Pitt’s parents don’t get along with Jolie to bed!
Angelina’s brother (remember that infamous Oscar kiss back in 2000?!) James Haven, was also there to support her new project although the two didn’t pose for any pictures together.
The 36 year old actress dazzled in a short-sleeved, flowing black top by Joseph and a long black Ralph Lauren skirt. She accessorized her look with Cole Haan shoes and gold Ofira jewelry.
On having her support system by her side, “It means everything,” Jolie said. “I couldn’t be standing here without them.”
Unfortunately, the day was not without controversy.
Jolie is being sued for copyright infringement over the film by a Croatian journalist who claims the plot of the new film was taken from his book, The Soul Shattering, which he wrote back in 2007. Jolie’s camp has yet to comment on the case.
In the Land of Blood and Honey stars Zana Marjanovic and Goran Kostic and hits theaters on December 23rd.
