Angelina Jolie basically stopped time when she stepped foot on the Oscars red carpet alongside now-ex Brad Pitt back in 2012, with her exposed right leg breaking the internet.

It was honestly a moment.

And the 44-year-old has now revealed that, as well as it being a certified look, she was actually quite comfortable rocking the now-iconic black Atelier Versace gown on the night.

While at the premiere for new film Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil, she let slip that it wasn’t actually her first choice on the night.

And the Changeling star was joined by five of her six children on the night, at El Captain Theatre in Hollywood.

Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne were on hand to support their mum at the bash, taking to the red carpet like total pros.

The mum-of-six was missing eldest son Maddox, 18, on the night – as he has just headed off to university in South Korea.

And she admitted she was really missing the teenager, but wouldn’t be without him for long.

‘He is flying to meet me in Japan, so I am two days away from my hug,’ she added. ‘He’s great, he’s solid, he’s fine, but I need it.’
