Los Angeles: Actor Brad Pitt cancelled a red carpet appearance for filmmaker Terrence Malick's new film "Voyage of Time" citing a "family situation" as the reason.
Pitt was scheduled to attend the premiere at the California Science Center on Wednesday, but with the actor set for divorce with actress Angelina Jolie, he decided not to attend it, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Pitt narrates Malick's feature that examines the origins of the universe and of life on Earth.
"Terrence's ‘Voyage of Time' is an incredibly beautiful and unique experiential IMAX film for children and families chronicling the birth of time," Pitt said in a statement.
"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," he added.
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt last week after staying together for 12 years. \
