and Brad Pitt
took over a French bowling alley on Monday so their kids could hit pins with pal Marianne Pearl's son. Jolie plays Pearl in new movie A Mighty Heart
, which Pitt produced, and the two families have become close since working together on the film, which follows the kidnap and murder of Pearl's journalist husband Daniel.
And when Marianne took up an invitation to join Pitt, Jolie and their four kids on a brief vacation in her native France, the Hollywood couple used their star power to close the Le Palace Vert arcade for a quiet bowl.
Owner Patrick Bernard tells People magazine he was particularly impressed with Pitt's parenting skills: "At one point... because the children don't have the strength to always get the ball down the lane, it sometimes stops. Brad thought he'd go down the lane to push it along. He slipped and fell on his back."
Pitt then showed off his air hockey skills. Bernard adds, "He was particularly good at it."
The owner still can't believe Pitt and Jolie chose to host their bowling party at his place: "We're certainly the smallest bowling in France, so we're still having trouble realizing we spent Monday afternoon with the most famous couple in the world."
