TIFF PHOTO GALLERY: Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Philip Seymour Hoffman on the red carpet for Moneyball
Screaming fans stretched from Wellington to King Street waiting for the horde of stars associated with director Bennett Miller’s bound-to-be-a-blockbuster flick Moneyball to walk the red carpet at Roy Thomson Hall. Real-life baseball player David Justice showed, and so too did Chris Pratt, grinning ear-to-ear, alongside wife Anna Faris. Practiced as he as at this rigmarole, Philip Seymour Hoffman still seemed bewildered by the spectacle and exited the carpet as quickly as possible, much to the chagrin of autograph-starved super-fans. The crowd chanted, “Jonah Hill,” and the slimmed-down star leaned over to Miller and said, “Remember that first dinner we had in Malibu, seven years ago?” See who arrived next, after the jump (hint: her purse is locked to her wrist).
When Angelina Jolie arrived, a hush came over the crowd and a whisper rippled through the crowd: “She’s here.” They were right—she was there. The supportive partner walked the carpet with long-time love Brad Pitt. She wore a floor-length black Vivienne Westwood gown and a gold Louis Vuitton clutch attached at the wrist with a fancy handcuff (um, really?). The only thing that can top Brangelina at this point: the Gos, obviously.
