WHO - - Spotted -

U nited Na­tions en­voy An­gelina Jolie beamed along­side her brood at the Sept. 10 pre­miere of an­i­mated film The Bread­win­ner, in which an Afghan girl dresses as a boy to pro­vide for her fam­ily. While the mes­sage of the movie—co-pro­duced by Jolie—is se­ri­ous, the star looked re­laxed as she shared time with her four youngest chil­dren: Za­hara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and Knox and Vivi­enne, 9. It was one of many snaphappy mo­ments at the 10-day Toronto Film Fes­ti­val, which has come to ri­val Venice and Cannes for its star-pulling power.

And just the start of a busy time for Jolie, where her fo­cus seemed to keep com­ing back to fam­ily. As well as pre­mier­ing her di­rec­to­rial ef­fort First They Killed My Fa­ther (see spot, left), the ac­tress and di­rec­tor, 42, spoke about her late mother, Marche­line Ber­trand, at an “In Con­ver­sa­tion” event later on Sept. 10. “I re­mem­ber my

mom telling me how she wanted to be an ac­tress,” said Jolie. “I did get into act­ing be­cause it made her so happy. Now I do it for my kids. And I do love it! Who doesn’t love to get silly?” Also be­ing can­did about fam­ily was

Subur­bicon di­rec­tor Ge­orge Clooney, 56, who was quizzed about three-month-old twins Alexan­der and Ella. “Right now, be­cause I have no breasts, I don’t ex­ist,” he told WHO. “I pick them up, I give them a bot­tle and hand them back to my wife.”

Less loquacious—though not by choice—was Ni­cole Kid­man, there to pro­mote com­edy The Up­side and hor­ror-drama The Killing of a

Sa­cred Deer: “I’m not al­lowed to talk about my chil­dren. I’ve been si­lenced,” the ac­tress, 50, tells WHO, laugh­ing. “I’m very, very proud of them and would love to be able to dis­cuss them but have been told to cut it out.”

Lady Gaga flounced in to the Sept. 8 pre­miere of her Net­flix bio­graph­i­cal doco Gaga: Five Foot Two. Ju­lianne Moore wore Dior to the Sept. 9 pre­miere of her film Subur­bicon. Quan­tico star Priyanka Cho­pra was in the pink at her “pas­sion project,” Pahuna: The Lit­tle Visi­tors, on Sept. 7.

The cou­ple shared a moment with Up­side star Bryan Cranston. The Up­side’s Ni­cole Kid­man wore Os­car de la Renta for a date night with hubby Keith Ur­ban to the film’s pre­miere on Sept. 8 On Sept. 9, Brits Mir­ren ( The Leisure Seeker) and Maisie Wil­liams ( Mary Shel­ley) pro­moted their films.
