Angelina Jolie, in a cafe latte colored silk chiffon pleated Elie Saab halter gown, was doing interviews on her own and added, "Everyone's fine. I think all parents get injured in the line of fire! When Maddox was young, I fell and hurt my elbow. It's a pretty common occurrence."

But don’t expect Pitt’s injury to slow down these busy parents down. They will be celebrating Zahara’s seventh birthday this Sunday.
