Brad Pitt injured protecting daughter

Angelina Jolie has reportedly explained why her hubbie Brad Pitt is having to use a walking stick.

The Moneyball star twisted his knee and suffered ligament damage when the family were on a skiing holiday. He took a tumble trying to protect three-year-old daughter Vivienne from a fall on the slopes.

‘Everything becomes such a huge thing doesn’t it? Vivi’s okay. She was absolutely fine. He took the fall. It was just to make sure,’ Angelina reportedly explained. ‘When Maddox was younger, I took a fall and cracked my elbow because I wanted to make sure he wasn’t injured.’

Moneyball is nominated for four gongs at this Sunday’s Golden Globes, including Best Motion Picture and Best Performance by an Actor for Brad Pitt.
