Being injured is worth it if it the children are okay.

That’s how Brad Pitt summed up his recent injury at the Palm Springs International Film Festival gala this weekend, explaining to the press corps that he hurt himself when he suffered a fall while carrying daughter Vivienne.

The upshot: Viv is fine. He walks with a cane now:

“When [Maddox] was younger, I took a fall and cracked my elbow because I wanted to make sure he didn’t have the fall,” said Angelina Jolie, by his side.

“Every parent has injured themselves at some point,” the father of six added. “Every parent will stand in the line of fire for their kids so it’s a normal thing.”

So is Brad milking the injury at home?

“He’s not that kind of guy,” she said. “He does everything still.”

“I’m proud of him every single day,” Jolie said of Pitt, who was presented the Desert Palm Achievement Award by his Moneyball co-star Jonah Hill.

Get well soon, Brad. But nice cane man.
