Brad Pitt misses Golden Globes glitz to take Maddox to football game

As the rest of Hollywood prepared for Sunday’s Golden Globes award ceremony, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie preferred to sit things out and spend some quality time with the kids. 

Brad enjoyed a father-son outing with eldest boy Maddox to an American football game in New Orleans on Saturday.

Sporting his now familiar long beard – grown for his current movie role – the Ocean’s Eleven star and his son were cheered by fans as they walked to their pitch-side seats at the New Orleans Saints versus Arizona Cardinals game.

The eight-year-old, whom mum Angelina Jolie adopted from a Cambodian orphanage in 2002, clutched an American football and stayed close to father’s side as the pair watched the home team storm to a 45-14 win.

And while the boys were busy watching the game, mum Angelina Jolie was out shopping with her two eldest daughters in California.

Following their family toy-buying trip earlier in the week, the Changeling actress took Zahara, five, and three-year-old Shiloh out to buy groceries at an organic supermarket in Sherman Oaks.

It's thought the couple, who recently donated $1 million to the Haiti earthquake relief fund, decided not to attend this year's Golden Globe ceremony because Brad was not individually nominated for his role in Quentin Tarantino flick Inglourious Basterds.
