The actor stepped out to visit Paramount Studios on Wednesday, where he was photographed sporting aviators and an all-black ensemble.
On Tuesday, Jolie, 37, revealed in an op-ed for the New York Times that she had undergone a double mastectomy after genetic tests showed her to have a high risk of developing breast cancer. Her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died of ovarian cancer at 56 in 2007.
In the editorial, Jolie expressed how much she leaned on Pitt, 49, whom she described as "loving and supportive" and there for her "for every minute of the surgeries."
Pitt later released a statement that said, "Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie's choice, as well as many others like her, absolutely heroic. I thank our medical team for their care and focus."
