Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have always insisted that their decision to get married – and the wedding itself – was all about their kids, who were really into the idea. It seems that’s actually the case, as Angelina donned a pretty interesting dress when she tied the knot with Brad last weekend.
Here’s the scoop from US Weekly:
In the first photos, on the new cover of the UK’s HELLO! magazine, the happy bride affectionately kisses her now-husband Pitt.
“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family,” Brad and Angelina told the mag.
As previously reported by Us Weekly, the couple wed in a small intimate ceremony in a chapel in Chateau Miraval in France. “It was a non-denominational civil ceremony,” a spokesperson for the couple told Us in a statement. “It was very much a family affair.”
A family affair indeed. Not only did Jolie’s dress feature artwork drawn by kids Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, the children were also active in the nuptials.
Jolie walked down the aisle with Maddox and Pax, while Zahara and Vivienne “threw petals, gathered from the garden,” the spokesperson previously told Us. “Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.”
Aw, well that’s sweet. I think it’s extra sweet that they really did do this for the kids and would have been perfectly fine not ever getting married if it wasn’t for them. I do think they will be together for a long ass time – like, think Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins time (they were the best couple EVER). I dunno, I just think they work!

I mean, this is actually the sum and total of what we know about this grand event, but that’s good enough for us. Despite the fucked up way their relationship came about all those years ago, you can’t stand in the way of true love and they do make a fantastic couple. Congrats to them!

Brad Pitt was attacked by a prankster at the Maleficent premiere in Hollywood last week, and while the dude who punched him in the face, Ukranian “journalist” Vitalii Sediuk is in some serious hot water over the incident, Brad still wants to have his say about how the whole thing went down.
Here’s what he told People:
“I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me. I took a step back; this guy had latched onto my lapels. I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head – not too hard – but enough to get his attention, because he did let go. I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses.”
“I don’t mind an exhibitionist,” Pitt continues, “but if this guy keeps it up he’s going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd. And he should know, if he tries to look up a woman’s dress again, he’s going to get stomped.”

In what must be the 2014 equivalent of Fabio getting smacked in the face with that bird while riding a roller coaster, poor Brad Pitt was jumped by some random dude at the LA premiere of Angelina Jolie‘s Maleficent. Someone wanted to destroy his beautiful face at all costs! HOW COULD THEY?!
Basically, some guy named Vitalii Sediuk jumped the fence while Brad was on the red carpet and ran over to him and started swinging. He made contact with Brad’s face before police stepped in and arrested Sediuk and he’s being charged with misdemeanor battery. This isn’t new for him, either – Sediuk is the one who got slapped for trying to kiss Will Smith, got arrested for crashing the Grammys and most recently, assaulted America Ferrera.
Why exactly is this asshole given credentials for any of these events given his history?
Anyhow, here’s US Weekly‘s extra tidbit on the happenings:
An eye witness tells US when Pitt left the premiere, “he did seem a little tense” and was “trying to shepherd his kids through the lobby and towards the back door,” adding Pitt, “was like ‘Keep tight. Stay together.’”
People seriously need to cool their jets, and this Sediuk asshole needs to be banned… like, from everything.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been teasing the world with the possibility of a big wedding for years, but so far, it seems we’ve all been waiting in vain. Not for long, though – Angelina says the couple’s kids are in charge of planning the whole affair, so it’ll end up being Disney or paintball. HOW ABOUT BOTH?
“We are discussing it with the children and how they imagine it might be,” Jolie, 38, who stars in the new film Maleficent, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding.”
“They will, in a way, be the wedding planners,” she says of Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 7, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 5. “It’s going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other!”
That’s cute – and great that they’re getting the kids involved, though there are no surprises there given that really Brangelina are only getting married because the kids have been asking for it. Still, really cute – I kinda love them as a couple.

Anyhoo, Brad visited the Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles on Friday and he’s shined himself up like a new penny – meaning he actually took a razor to his wilderness man facial hair and doesn’t look too much like a stoner.
There is a bit of hidden sadness to this day, though: Brad got a parking ticket when he got back to his car! :(
