Brangelina Visit White House

Just dropping in to say a quick hello! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who were in D.C. for the premiere of Jolie’s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, swung by the White House on Wednesday. A White House aide confirmed to The Hill that the president spoke with Jolie about “her work to raise the profile of preventing mass atrocities and combating sexual violence against women.” No news on whether Brad got in his two cents with the commander in chief—he may very well have been too starstruck to speak. According to Jodi Kantor’s new book, The Obamas, Pitt “barely said a thing” when he visited the Oval Office in 2009, apparently tongue-tied in “respectful awe” of the president.
