Brad Pitt Says He Needs Cane After Injuring Himself While Protecting Daughter Vivienne

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Brad Pitt walked the red carpet at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards gala on Saturday night with the help of a cane.

Standing along with his partner Angelina Jolie, Pitt said he injured his ACL, a ligament in the knee.

The Moneyball star explained, “I was carrying my daughter [Vivienne] down the hill [while on ski slopes] and I slipped,” noting, “It was either her or me” that was going to get hurt.

Fortunately, Vivienne is “absolutely fine,” said Jolie, adding, “I like the cane.”

And that’s good because Pitt said that, while he won’t need surgery, he’ll be relying on the cane for some time.

How do you think Pitt looks with the cane?
