Brangelina kids in the dark over Oscars

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's kids didn't know they were going to the Oscars.

The couple - who raise six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, together - don't let their brood watch awards ceremonies, and they just told them they were going to "work".

Angelina explained: "We don't let them watch these things. They don't really know about them actually. We say we have to go to work tonight - they said, 'Hurry home.'"

Shunning Oscars parties

Meanwhile, Brad's parents Jane and Bill Pitt walked the red carpet with the superstar couple, and were "proud" to see their son nominated for the Best Actor gong for his role in Moneyball.

Angelina added to E! News: "He's making sure his mom and dad have a good night. They're great parents and they're proud of him like all parents - no matter what he does."

However, the couple were shunning the lavish Oscars after parties in favour of a quiet dinner with Brad's parents.

The actress told Extra: "We're with Brad's mom and dad, and we're just going to go out to dinner. We're kind of old school, just going to hang out and have a glass of wine and see how it goes."

Brad narrowly lost out on the Best Actor gong to Jean Dujardin for his role in The Artist, which scooped five awards at Sunday's ceremony. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
