Angelina Jolie was a vision in white when she attended the London premiere of her latest project, Unbroken, on Tuesday. While Brad Pitt was nowhere to be seen on the red carpet, the actress-turned-director instead split her time between her film's star, Jack O'Connell, and chatting up two Chelsea Pensioners who attended the event in their trademark scarlet uniforms. It's been a busy week for Angie, who recently opened up to NBC's Tom Brokaw about her new life as a married woman, saying that she wanted to learn how to cook in order to be "a better wife" for Brad.
