Bittersweet. Angelina Jolie and fiance Brad Pitt shared an emotional moment at the 86th Academy Awards Sunday night. During the show, a clip of Jolie’s honorary Oscar humanitarian speech from back in November was shared with the audience, showing the Maleficent actress tearing up while speaking of her late mother Marcheline Bertrand.
“My mother loved art. She loved film,” Jolie, 38, said in the short clip. “But whenever it had meaning she had a point in telling me that is what a film is for.”
She continued: “And to stand here today means I did as she asked and if she were alive she would be very proud. So thank you for that.” (Jolie’s mother Bertrand died at the age of 56 from ovarian cancer in 2007. She previously was married to Jolie’s father, Jon Voight, from 1971-1989.)
After re-watching her speech, Oscar cameras panned to Jolie and Pitt, 50, teary-eyed. The 12 Years a Slave star then gave his bride-to-be a sweet kiss on her forehead.
Jolie received an honorary Oscar for her humanitarian work at the 5th Annual Governors Ball in Hollywood on Nov. 16, and was joined by both Pitt and their 13-year-old son Maddox, the oldest of the couple’s six children. At the time, she also spoke about being a mother herself.
“Mad, I’m not gonna cry, I promise. I won’t embarrass you,” she told her young boy. “You and your brothers and your sisters are my happiness. And there is no greater honor in this world than being your mom.”
She added to Pitt: “Your support and your guidance make everything that I do possible.”
