Epitome of cool: Brad Pitt showed up to promote movie Killing Them Softly in a light coloured suit and white pumps

Actor Brad Pitt has revealed that despite the recent announcement of his engagement to Angelina Jolie - the pair have not set a date yet.

While it was widely rumoured he planned to wed Angelina this year, at the photocall for new film Killing Them Softly he was quick to dispel talk.

Brad, 48, told Mail Online: 'We truly have no date. I'm still hoping we'll figure out our marriage equality in the States before then', Pitt said referring to the debate in the US over same sex marriage.

And he hinted that part of the reason may lay in Angelina's filming commitments.

When Pitt was asked about the whereabouts of Angelina, he explained she was away preparing for a new film role.

The actress was expected to wow the red carpet tonight at the gala screening of Pitt's film which premieres today.

The 48-year-old looked the epitome of cool as he showed up in a youthful look, which consisted of light summer suit, which he matched with a white T-shirt and white pumps.

It marked a rare break for Brad from his brood, as he stepped out minus partner Angelina and their six children.

But he obviously wanted to get to work promoting the Andrew Dominick film, in which he will play a contract killer alongside stars including Scoot McNairy, Ray Liotta, Vince Curatola, and Ben Mendelson.

Although Brad said he wasn't troubled by violence in movies.

The actor was speaking at a press conference after the world premiere screening of the film and said that violence is an accepted part of the gangster world and noted that violence goes hand in hand with crime.

Pitt said he would have little problem with his children watching violent movies when they're older.

'I would find playing a racist more unsettling than playing someone who shoots someone in the face', Pitt declared.

'We live in such a violent world', Pitt said and then asked people who love hamburgers to think about the killing involved in creating that burger. 'I don't see a world without violence', he added.

Causing a stir: Hordes of onlookers went wild as he stepped out for the Cannes Film Festival

The film Killing Them Softly suggests that murder in a gangland setting is acceptable. One of the movie's key moments has Pitt and a Mob lawyer, played by Richard Jenkins, discussing the execution of some robbers as a simple business transaction.

Indeed one line in the film is sure to become much quoted. Pitt's character says to Jenkins, 'America's not a country, it's just a business'.

Killing Them Softly was having its gala screening in Cannes tonight.

It uses the gangster genre, and humour, to make larger points, not always successfully, about the state of the economy.
However, the acting particularly from Pitt Scoot McNairy and Jenkins is terrific.
