Once again, Brad Pitt was turning heads on the red carpet Monday night. And it wasn't just because of a gorgeous Angelina Jolie on his arm, but because of his newest accessory: a black cane.
The actor, 48, who previously told reporters he had an injured ACL (a ligament in the knee that connects the femur with the tibia), tells PEOPLE he's doing just fine.
"It wasn't life or death," Pitt, who slipped down a hill while carrying 3-year-old daughter Vivienne, said at Monday's New York Film Critics Circle Awards. "It was just an old man tripping."

Angelina Jolie is as well known for her work helping refugees around the world as she is for making movies. But she'll let her kids decide for themselves whether they want to follow in her activist footsteps.
"I'm not one of those moms who kind of lectures [my kids]," Jolie, 36, told reporters on Saturday at the 23rd Annual Palm Springs Film Festival. "But I do tell them, whenever I go on a trip, where I'm going and why. And on some occasions, they've come with me to different refugee camps. And they also go to their home countries a lot."
The actress, who wore an Elie Saab gown to the festival's awards gala, has faith her little ones will make decisions based on what they see in their day-to-day lives.

What's Brad Pitt's newest accessory?
A cane – and it's not just for show.
The actor, 48, walked the red carpet at the 23nd annual Palm Springs Film Festival awards gala with the cane on Saturday, and told reporters he has an injured ACL, a ligament in the knee that connects the femur with the tibia.
"I was carrying my daughter [Vivienne] down the hill and I slipped," Pitt said. "It was either her or me."
