The Pope and the Pitt: Angelina Jolie meets His Holiness, but where's Brad?

Angelina Jolie has met Pope Francis for the first time, after a screening of her new film Unbroken at the Vatican recently.  

The Pope wasn't at the showing of Jolie's latest directorial effort, but Mrs Pitt and two of her children met the Bishop of Rome briefly after her movie was done, according to one spokesperson. 

What one of Hollywood's most powerful A-list celebrities and the leader of the worldwide Catholic Church talked about was, alas, not revealed. 

Jolie is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) while the 78-year-old pontiff from Buenos Aires has shocked the papacy with his reforms.  

Maybe they talked about the Oscar-winning actress' second effort behind the camera, this time to tell the story of US Olympian and WWII soldier Louis Zamperini, whose plane was shot down over the Pacific during the war. 

Unbroken, which the American Film Institute named one of Top 10 Films of the Year and that got Jolie a Critics Choice Movie Award nomination for Best Director, is the story of Zamperini's survival in a raft for nearly two months and his ordeal at a war camp prisoner.

Or perhaps they talked about where the other half of Brangelina was hiding. God only knows. – Reuters
