Brad and Angelina's eldest Maddox makes his LA red carpet debut

by With parents as famous as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, their eight-year-old son Maddox must be used to the glitzy Hollywood lifestyle.

And this week he took a big step into the spotlight, attending his very first LA film premiere alongside mum and dad.

Dressed in a gold hat and with a trendy scarf wrapped round his neck, the little boy joined the couple for the Californian screening of Invictus.

Heading out for the premiere gave Brad and Ange the chance to show support for their many famous friends involved in the project.

Clint Eastwood, who worked with the actress on The Changeling, directed the feature film, which is based on Nelson Mandela's efforts to unite apartheid-torn South Africa through the national rugby team.

Brad's Ocean's Eleven co-star Matt Damon stars as captain Francois Pienaar and Morgan Freeman - who worked with the Inglourious Basterds actor in Seven and with Angelina in Wanted - plays the former president.

Morgan is already winning acclaim for his work in the role, and it seems his casting has the blessing of Mr Mandela himself.

Back in 1994 while promoting his memoir, Long Walk To Freedom, the 91-year-old named him as the actor he thought should play him on the big screen.

"So it became," the Shawshank Redemption star recently recalled. "That was the whole sanction, right there."
