Hollywood’s First Couple must have made quite a splash at the closing of 17th annual Sarajevo Film Festival. With Ange dressed to impress in a coral-coloured gown by Elie Saab accessorised with Jimmy Choo shoes, the actress picked up the Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award for her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, which was filmed in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Flanked by a grungy (but still dapper) Brad Pitt, Angelina, who has strong ties to the nation after carrying out extensive work with refugees, was overcome by emotion when she received a standing ovation. She revealed: “I told Brad in the car I was afraid I was going to cry.”
The couple have kept a low profile of late, spending time with their brood of six in Richmond-upon-Thames, just outside London, with Brad filming World War Z in Cornwall.
