Are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie headed down the altar sometime soon?

That’s what could be expected, given Pitt’s recent comments about the pressure to propose – but according to Jolie, 36, her longtime beau’s comments were a bit overblown.

“I think anything said tends to be blown out of proportion,” Jolie told PEOPLE on Sunday’s red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in L.A., when asked about “a lot of ring-talk lately.”

“Yeah, that was my fault,” Pitt, 48, admitted, with a smile.

Speculation that wedding bells may be in the near future for the famous couple stem from Pitt’s interview with CBS News in which he said he and Jolie are “getting a lot of pressure from the kids.”

“It means something to them,” he continued. “We will [get married] someday, we will. It’s a great idea. ‘Get mommy a ring.’ ‘OK, I will, I will.’ ”

And then last week, Pitt reiterated those same comments to The Hollywood Reporter.

“It seems to mean more and more to our kids,” he said. “We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to [get married] till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”
