In the full week since Brad Pitt released a statement to People regarding Angelina Jolie's decision to file for divorce , there has been radio silence, even amidst reports he is being investigated for child abuse by the FBI and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services for being verbally and physically abusive with one of his children on a flight from France to California.
Pitt broke his silence this afternoon to Access Hollywood, although his second statement did not address any of these allegations. Instead, Pitt announced he will not be attending tomorrow's red carpet screening of Voyage of Time, a documentary he narrated (and where he'd likely have to take questions from reporters).
"Terrence's 'Voyage of Time' is an incredibly beautiful and unique experiential IMAX film for children and families chronicling the birth of time," he said. "I'm very grateful to be part of such a fascinating and educational project, but I'm currently focused on my family situation and don't want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film, which I encourage everyone to see."
