Before hitting the red carpet for the L.A. premiere of Inglourious Basterds last night, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stopped traffic outside of Grauman's Chinese Theatre, ambushed a tour bus, shook hands with fans and then dished about it.
"This is my neighborhood," Pitt told me afterward, as the power couple headed down the carpet into Quentin Tarantino's World War II flick. "I ride my bike up and down [Hollywood Boulevard] a lot, and there's always fans and tourists out here, so I always try to give them a little wave."
Angelina had plenty to say, too, most of it about Brad...
"He just loved working with Quentin," she told me. Great, but what about that deep-friend twang Q.T. outfitted Brad's Nazi-scalping soldier with? "He works very hard. He's really good at accents."
Pitt had a slightly different take on his drawl: "I found out I have a little redneck in me."
When I asked him about the candid, controversial interview he gave to Parade magazine recently, he explained: "Maybe I'm just getting old and grumpy."
