Pitt To Miss Cannes

BRAD PITT has apologised to the organisers of the Cannes Film Festival for not being able to attend the premiere of his new movie BABEL tonight (23MAY06), because he is awaiting the imminent birth of his first child in Namibia. The FIGHT CLUB star and girlfriend ANGELINA JOLIE have been staying in a guarded compound in the African country for six weeks in a bid to avoid press intrusion. Director ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ and Pitt's Babel co-stars CATE BLANCHETT and GAEL GARCIA BERNAL are all promoting the film at Cannes. In an email read out at a press conference, Pitt says, "With the imminent arrival of the newest addition to our family, I'm unable to join Alejandro, Cate, and Gael Garcia Bernal and the rest of the cast and crew in introducing the film. "I am tremendously proud of Babel and want to congratulate everyone involved in this great achievement."
