Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Attend Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt added some glamour to the 2012 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala last night! Angelina seems to like loose, flowing dresses, doesn’t she? She looks gorgeous, and the cane doesn’t dampen Brad’s hotness in the slightest.

Brad was honored for his work in the movies ‘Moneyball’ and ‘Tree of Life.’ Angelina explained to OK! magazine why Brad was on a cane: he injured himself while protecting Vivienne from a fall.

“Everything becomes such a huge thing doesn’t it? Vivi’s okay. She was absolutely fine. He took the fall. It was just to make sure. When Maddox was younger, I took a fall and cracked my elbow because I wanted to make he wasn’t injured.”

Ah, the joys of parenthood ;). Hopefully Brad will be cane-free soon!

Angelina Jolie Bought Brad Pitt A Waterfall For His Birthday

I can’t even imagine how hard it must be to buy a gift for someone who’s easily wealthy enough to have bought everything they could possibly want! But Angelina Jolie rose to the challenge when she was selecting a birthday present for her partner, Brad Pitt. She bought him a waterfall.

Well, Angelina bought some land in rural California that included a waterfall. Now Brad, who’s had a longstanding interest in architecture, can recreate Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Pennsylvanian Fallingwater estate. A source explained:

“Brad has always loved Fallingwater and his first trip there was unforgettable. Angelina wanted to get him something incredibly special and, because she knows how much he loves architecture, she thought this would be perfect.

“She hopes this will be a hideaway for the family. Brad has dreamed of a home with the sound of a waterfall cascading under the house. Brad has always wanted to design his own house. He wants to pull all aspects of nature, light, glass and varying levels into the concept. This is the present to top all presents.”

Yes, it certainly is QUITE a present (and a wonderful place for the family). Go Angelina!

Angelina Jolie Talks Family Dinners And Traveling With Six Kids

Angelina Jolie sits down with Anderson Cooper for an interview, which will air on Monday, to chat about family, traveling, and her new directorial debut ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey‘.

Angelina shared that there were no caterers involved in their Thanksgiving dinner this year:

“Brad and I decided we were actually going to make the turkey and we were very successful and very proud of ourselves.  We did it! This was just the two of us with the kids watching trying to pretend we knew exactly what we were doing. We actually have family dinner every night. We make a point of it. It’s crazy. There’s a good five minutes were everybody is quiet and sitting together and then it starts to break off.”

Angelina shared that their six children, Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne, and Knox, all love to travel and even started doing their own packing:

“Now we are starting to get them where they each have their own luggage and they unpack their own clothes and pack their own. Because it was just getting to confusing for me to figure out but it’s great, it’s so much fun. Fortunately, my kids love to travel… they’re very worldly.  What I love is that they can be in New York in a hotel in Manhattan and think it’s so cool, and then I can bring them to the middle of Kenya and drop them in a tent with no TV and no nothing, and they’re just as happy.”
