Brad Pitt is a well-known architecture buff. Looks like his kids share daddy's hobby – just on a smaller (and sweeter!) scale.

"They're making gingerbread houses right now," mom Angelina Jolie told PEOPLE Tuesday night, when asked about her brood. "They're great."

After her glamorous double date with Pitt's parents on Monday, Jolie stepped out solo for a surprise appearance at the premiere of close friend Clint Eastwood's latest film, Gran Torino.

Wearing minimal makeup and a casual sweater, Jolie, 33, chatted briefly with reporters on the red carpet, saying that when it comes to holiday traditions, the Jolie-Pitts are just "like all families."

As for Eastwood, 78 – who directed Jolie in the Oscar-buzz-winning Changeling and who is winning accolades (and a National Board of Review top prize) for his acting in Gran Torino – the actress summed it up simply: "I think he gets better every year."
