Brad and Angelina fire up Toronto
The crowd in Toronto went crazy last night when Hollywood royal couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie emerged from their limo and glided down the the Royal Thompson Hall red carpet. Waving their hands and smiling, the couple obligingly signed autographs and shook hands with the swooning fans.
Pitt was attending the premiere of “Moneyball”, in which he portrays the general manager of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, who pioneered a new mathematical method of evaluating players and assembling a team, which enabled him to resurrect his team from a certain failure and elevate it to the top of league.
The other stars of the movie, Jona Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman and Anna Faris also attended the screening.
Earlier, Festival’s crowd had been treated to glimpses of the stars of George Clooney political drama “The Ides of March”: George Clooney, Paul Giamatti Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Marisa Tomie.
Both films were enthusiastically received by film fans and critics, raising their prospect for Oscar recognition.
