Playing Brad Pitt Fills In for Sick Angelina Jolie, Gives Chicken Pox Update

If you're going to call in sick, it always helps to send your hot husband in your place!

Chicken pox may have prevented Angelina Jolie from attending the L.A. Premiere of Unbroken, but her family was more than happy to step in for her.

Brad Pitt came out to support his wife's passion project and brought their kids Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, and Shiloh, 8, and they were dressed to the nines.
