Angelina Jolie beamed as she hit the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) with her children.

The Oscar-winning actress (42) has been slowly easing her way back into the limelight in recent months after announcing her divorce to husband Brad Pitt last November. On Sunday, she was joined by four of her six children - Vivienne, Knox, Shiloh and Zahara - for the premiere of The Breadwinner, an animated film which she executive produced alongside Irish company Cartoon Saloon.

The mother-of-six looked happy and healthy, wearing an all-white silk co-ord by Givenchy, after she revealed in August that doesn't enjoy being single. "It's not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard," she told Vanity Fair.

"Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together, but really I am just trying to get through my days. Emotionally it’s been a very difficult year."

Jolie will also be making her return to acting, saying that she is the family's breadwinner now, after taking time off to focus on her children in the wake of her split with Pitt, her partner of 11 years.

"When they can have...when I feel it's time for me to go back to work, I'll be able to go back to work. I've been needed at home. I hope [to work again] in the months to come," she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Earlier this year, in a candid interview with GQ, Pitt admitted that his drinking was the impetus behind his marriage breakdown.

"I hit the lottery and I still would waste my time on those hollow pursuits," he told the magazine. When asked if the months after the split have fel like a death, he replied "yeah" in agreement.

When asked if he had a substance problem, he said he was "boozing too much" and spoke candidly about his battle with alcohol.

"I mean, we have a winery. I enjoy wine very, very much, but I just ran it to the ground. I had to step away for a minute. And truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good.

"But me, personally, I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something.

"I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know - things I wasn’t dealing with. I was boozing too much. It’s just become a problem."

Since their divorce, he said he feels the responsibility to become a better father, saying: "I gotta be more. I gotta be more for them. I have to show them."
