Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award 2013 award winner Angelina Jolie gave a touching speech at the first Oscars event this season.

Jolie mentioned her mother and thanked Brad Pitt as she was honored at the early Oscars ceremony.

The 'Salt' actress - who underwent a double mastectomy in February - was presented with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Governors Awards in Los Angeles and she praised her fiance for his ''support'' and ''guidance''.

She said: ''My love. Your support and your guidance make everything I do possible.''

She also promised not to cry and embarrass her son Maddox, 12, who was at the ceremony with his father to supported Angelina.

She added: ''I'm not going to cry, I promise. I'm not going to embarrass you.

''You and your brothers and sisters are my happiness and there is no greater honor in this world than being your mom.''

And the 38-year-old star - who also has children, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne with Brad - explained she hopes to make her own mother proud.

Getting teary-wide, she said: ''I will do as my mother asked and I will do the best I can with this life to be of use.

''And to stand here today means I did as she asked and if she were alive she'd be very proud, so thank you.''
