The news of Brangelina’s break-up rocked the Internet last week, and news has since surfaced that Angelina Jolie is the one who initiated the divorce. Jolie and Pitt have six children together and have been a couple for over a decade, though they officially tied the knot two years ago.
In a new statement, Brad Pitt says that he wants to focus on his family in this rocky time. Consequently, he skipped the premiere of Voyage of Time, an IMAX documentary directed by Terrence Malick. Pitt narrated the film, but the premiere happened at an unexpectedly turbulent time in his personal life, and he didn’t want to take attention away from the film.
“Terrence’s Voyage of Time is an incredibly beautiful and unique experiential IMAX film for children and families chronicling the birth of time,” Pitt said in a statement to Access Hollywood. “I’m very grateful to be part of such a fascinating and educational project, but I’m currently focused on my family situation and don’t want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film, which I encourage everyone to see.”
This latest statement echoes an earlier sentiment Pitt expressed to People, detailing his concern for the well-being of his children and asking the press to give them the “space they deserve during this challenging time.” Let’s hope the paparazzi got the memo.
The Voyage of Time is a documentary of life and the cosmos from the Big Bang to present day, and will be in theaters beginning October 7.
