Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still holding out for marriage equality across all of the United States before they tie the knot themselves. The couple - who announced their engagement earlier this year - had previously spoke of putting off their nuptials until everyone in the U.S. is entitled to get married, and it appears that they're sticking to their guns.
When pushed at the Cannes Film Festival as to a possible wedding date, Pitt was quoted by the Los Angeles Time as saying that the couple were "still hoping we figure out marriage equality in the States before that date". The remarks come after President Barack Obama came out in support of gay marriage during an interview this month, which was warmly received by numerous celebrities at the time. When the actor was asked whether he was just trying to fool the paparazzi, Pitt insisted that he and Angelina "actually, really truly" had no date set. Brad's new movie 'Killing Them Softly' received glowing reviews following its premiere at the festival this week, with the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw calling it, "a slick ensemble-nightmare of middle-management mobster brutality and incompetence in the tradition of Goodfellas and Casino, Pulp Fiction and TV's The Sopranos".
The movie follows the story of professional enforce Jackie Cogan, who investigates a heist that went down during a high stakes, mob protected poker game.
