Their Malibu host, Brad Pitt, picked up a $250,000 check to benefit the Film Foundation Inc. at Wednesday's Hollywood Foreign Press Association luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Others in attendance included Kevin Bacon, Jesse Bradford, Peter Falk, America Ferrera, Sally Field, Emmy Rossum and Ziyi Zhang. At the event, the HFPA (which also presents the Golden Globes) announced more than $1 million in financial grants to film schools and nonprofit organizations.
The occasion marked Brad's first public appearance since he was diagnosed with a mild case of viral meningitis after checking himself into L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on July 11, complaining of flu-like symptoms. He went home two days later.
The actor, 41, was in Ethiopia recently with Jolie to pick up the actress's newly adopted Zahara.
