Pitt Makes First Public Appearance Since Health Scare
July 20, 2005

Brad Pitt showed everyone he's no worse for wear, as he made his first public appearance since battling viral meningitis at the Hollywood Foreign Press's annual luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Pitt joined Sally Field and Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum for the charity event.

"It's my great honor to accept this contribution today," Pitt said to the audience. "On behalf of the Film Foundation, I offer my deepest gratitude to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and to thank you for your ongoing support. And I want to say, thanks for the money!"

Meanwhile, People magazine Executive Editor Peter Castro says Jolie headed for Los Angeles as soon as baby Zahara was released from a New York hospital. "Clean bill of health, little Zahara is fine," Castro said. "She's in LA with mommy and also with Brad Pitt because Angelina flew right to LA and immediately went to Brad Pitt's house."

People also says that Angelina was also suffering from a virus, but it isn't keeping her down. Jolie and the entire family strolled the Malibu streets earlier this week, and "Extra" sources say she may be enrolling son Maddox in a private school near Brad's home.

So while they all may be feeling under the weather, it looks like Brad, Angelina and her new family are growing closer every day.
