Jolie's style black and white
Jolie, complete with a Hepburnesque "little black dress", was in Tokyo yesterday for the opening of her new movie 'Salt'. The star took the opportunity to brush off rumours about her relations with Brad Pitt.
"He was just a wonderful father," she said of Pitt, during work on the film, in which she plays a tough spy. He often brought the children to the set.
"They played with fake blood, and they found mommy very strange in her different hair," she said.
Pitt and Jolie have known each other since they met while working on the 2005 film 'Mr & Mrs Smith'. They are raising six children.
Last week, Pitt and Jolie accepted undisclosed damages in London's High Court to settle a privacy claim against a British tabloid that had reported in January they were planning to split.
Asked about her ability to work and maintain a happy family, Jolie told reporters at a Tokyo hotel: "Brad is the word that makes it possible."
Jolie, who arrived yesterday, brought four of the children along on the Japan trip. They have already spent some time shopping for toys inspired by Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki's animation characters Ponyo and Totoro, she said.
