The couple that cries together, predicts Oscar picks together.
At least, that seems to be the case for A-list supernovas Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who, according to Ange, shared a tender moment together while watching Ewan McGregor's performance in the upcoming film The Impossible.
Jolie hosted a special screening of the movie -- which centers on a family dealing with the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami -- in London Monday night where she gushed about McGregor.
His harrowing performance as a distraught father is gaining Oscar buzz, and a glowing endorsement from Jolie is sure to help his chances.
"I have known you for years and you are one of my favorite actors and I've always loved to watch you, but I watched this and I didn't recognize you," Jolie told the Scottish actor. "To say it is one of the best performances of the year, really doesn't give it credit, because it doesn't feel like a performance. It's from such an honest place and so deeply emotional."
She went on to say that McGregor was so good, in fact, that he moved both she and her fiancé Brad Pitt to tears.
"You rarely see this emotion from a man on screen and I called (McGregor) later to tell him how much he made me cry," she added. "I was crying, and I looked over at Brad and he was crying. It's just really, really powerful. As an actor, I'm in awe."
The Impossible also stars Naomi Watts and is set to hit theaters Dec. 21.
