After staying away from the limelight as a couple for three months, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were clicked together at Cannes. Jolie, 33, who is suffering from a cold, arrived at the festival to support Pitt, 45, at the premiere of his film. 

While on the red carpet at the festival, Pitt admitted that he did not remember how he agreed to be in the film, where he plays a Nazi bounty hunter.

'Quentin came to visit. I get up the next morning and see five empty bottles of wine -- and something that resembles a smoking apparatus,' the Mirror quoted him as saying. 'I don't know what that was about and apparently, I had agreed to do this film,' he added.
