January 8, 2015 Brad Pitt, Shiloh

His Holiness gets a visit for Hollywood. Angeline Jolie visited the Vatican on Thursday to meet with Pope Francis and even hosted a special screening of her movie Unbroken.

The actress was invited to the Vatican by the head of the Catholic church and was asked by the Pope himself if she could screen her movie for the Political Academy of Sciences.

In a press release issued by Universal Pictures, she said, "Being invited with my film to the Vatican is an honor and a great tribute to the story that I have told in Unbroken. The story of the hero Louis a great example of strength and forgiveness."

The studio's Italian wing added that the Pope held Louis Zamperini in high esteem. "Pope Francis, aware of the incredible life story of Louis Zamperini, graciously welcomed the opportunity to view the film and is expected to attend the screening at the Casina Pio IV, headquarters of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences," Universal Pictures Italia added.

Jolie hosted the event along with Zamperini's son Luke. While her kids Zahara and Shiloh were also at Rome, they did not attend the event.

Brad Pitt was scheduled to attend the meeting but had to withdraw due to a "last minute change," a source said.
