Los Angeles: Brad Pitt was spotted with a cane at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and the actor said it was because he tripped while carrying his daughter.

The `Moneyball` star was walking with the help of the stick on the red carpet of the 23rd Palm Springs International Film Festival`s Awards Gala, said The Hollywood Reporter.

"I was carrying my daughter and I tripped and fell. But everyone`s fine," said Pitt, who was accompanied by his partner Angelina Jolie at the event.

Jolie, in a cafe latte colored silk chiffon pleated Elie Saab halter gown, was doing interviews on her own and added, "Everyone`s fine. I think all parents get injured in the line of fire! When Maddox was young, I fell and hurt my elbow. It`s a pretty common occurrence."

Pitt is being honored with the Desert Palm Achievement Actor Award at the Film Festival for his work in `Moneyball` and `Tree of Life`.

The star-studded event, which runs January 5-16, will also honor Pitt`s `Tree of Life` co-star Jessica Chastain with the Spotlight Award.
