Angelina Jolie's frosty relationship with Brad Pitt's mother appears to have thawed given their chummy appearance in Hollywood last night.
The Oscar-winning actress was all smiles and giggles with Jane Pitt on the red carpet of Brad's latest film The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.
Their appearance of solidarity on the red carpet follows years of rumours of tension between the two women.
Missouri schoolteacher Jane was incredibly close to Brad's first wife Jennifer Aniston and was dismayed when the pair announced their split in January 2005.
Jane remained in contact with Jennifer and still sees her to this day, which proves rather awkward for Angelina.
Angelina admitted she was concerned when she first met Brad's parents, because she was aware of their close relationship with Jennifer. She said: 'When I first met them I came in with two adopted children from other countries and I didn't know how they were going to be. But they are equally loving with them.'
Reports suggest Jane, who raised Brad as a Baptist, is keen for the couple to marry after becoming parents to six children out of wedlock.
Jane was also said to be have been stunned recently when Angelina admitted she and Brad fell in love on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2004 - while he was still married to Jennifer.
Referring to the film, she told the New York Times in October: 'Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love.'
Her recent claims appeared to contradict the couple's previous denials that they only started dating after he split from Jennifer the following year.
In the early days of their relationship, Angelina said: 'To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive.'
Following Angelina's revelations, Jennifer admitted to being unhappy with her conduct over some of the details of their relationship. She told the December issue of U.S. Vogue: 'There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening. 'That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.'
