Brad Pitt was behind the wheel, and sporting facial hair that now matches his buddy George Clooney's, leaving dinner with friends in Santa Monica last night. Brad and Angelina Jolie have been lying low in LA for the past few weeks, enjoying date nights and big donations to kick of 2011. The Jolie-Pitts split their holiday time between Africa and Missouri, where his family is, giving the kids a taste of both where Shiloh was born and Brad grew up. It's still a mystery whether or not Brad and Angelina will hit the red carpet at Sunday's Golden Globes, where she's a nominee for her work in The Tourist. The odds aren't great that Angelina will walk away with a win — don't forget to fill out our ballot for a chance to win $1,000! — but award season wouldn't be the same without at least one glamorous Jolie-Pitt moment. Perhaps they'll even stop by the Weinstein afterparty to celebrate the studio picking up distribution rights to Brad's upcoming movie Cogan's Trade.
