Hundreds of people flocked to The Star in Sydney last night to catch a glimpse of one of the world’s biggest stars, Brad Pitt, at the Australian premiere of World War Z. With his long hair in a ponytail and dressed down in black — his outfit of choice at the film’s recent European premieres — Brad arrived on the red carpet to excited screams, and took his time taking photos with fans who lined the entrance to the entertainment venue. His partner Angelina Jolie did not accompany him to Australia, but he was reportedly joined by his nine-year-old son Pax, and told media the country looks “even better than it looks on TV” for his first-ever visit.
After wrapping interviews and fan photos, Brad made his way to the newly-refurbished events centre at the top of The Star, which had a special screen custom built for the night’s screening. He joined director Marc Forster to introduce the picture but kept it short and sweet, saying, “This has been six years in the making. I see no more reason to muck about — let’s get this party started.” The room was also filled with plenty of Australia’s famous faces, including Reece Mastin and Rhiannon Fish, Fitzy and Wippa, Brenna Harding, Emma Birdsall, and newly-engaged couple Nikki Phillips and Dane Rumble. World War Z is out on June 20.
