Guess those pictures of the Jolie-Pitts living it up in Italy -- the boat rides, gelato, and on-set smooches -- don't lie.
In London for Monday's red carpet premiere of the film Kick-Ass (he's a producer) Brad Pitt told UsMagazine.com that life in Venice has been "lovely!"
Pitt braved London's downpour with a hat and quipped, "the rain won't put us off a premiere!" (Kick-Ass stars Nicolas Cage and is scheduled to hit theaters next month.)
The star, 46, went stag for this premiere: Angelina Jolie, 34, stayed behind in the ancient city of canals with their six kids; she's been filming the The Tourist there with Johnny Depp.
With The Tourist filming primarily in Venice for about two more months, the famous family -- Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, Shiloh, 3, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 20 months --has rented out a lavish, canalside 15th century palazzo.
