Washington Dec 4 : Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were so keen to see Barack Obama's historic win that they actually flew down to his Chicago, Illinois base to watch the votes roll in.
Though the couple never publicly endorsed the Democrat candidate but they made sure that they were present there and witness the historic win.
In an interview to US talk show host Larry King, Pitt revealed that both of them also attended the Illinois Senator's victory rally in the city centre, but made sure they kept a low profile.
"I think overnight we redefined what America is about. I couldn't be any happier or more hopeful for America," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
"We were in Chicago in Grand Park. It was an incredible experience - we ended up walking home that night, as all the main boulevards were closed. And just the jubilation in the street was something extraordinary to see," he added.
