Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's engagement could be a long one! A month after the actor slipped a custom-designed diamond ring on his lady love's finger, he says they aren't rushing to the altar.

"We actually really, truly have no date," Pitt, who is promoting his new gangster flick "Killing Them Softly," said at a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday. And they're not abandoning their previous position that they would like same-sex marriage to be legalized before they take the plunge. "We're still hoping that we can figure out marriage equality in the states before that date."

As for why, after seven years and six kids together, they decided to get engaged, Pitt said it was all about the timing. "It's just something that makes sense to us," he noted.

Pitt, who was casually dressed for the event in a grey suit and white T-shirt and sported a goatee, said he's flying solo at Cannes this year because Jolie, who is getting ready to shoot "Maleficent," is too busy to attend. "She's actually not here right now," he said. "She's prepping for a movie she starts very soon."

But she was a frequent topic of conversation. Pitt was also asked if he and Jolie, who fell in love on the set of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" when he was still married to Jennifer Aniston, would costar in another movie. He replied: "Yeah, we'd love to." Although it was rumored that collaboration would take place in "The Counselor," it now looks like Cameron Diaz will be playing the part instead.

In Pitt's upcoming crime thriller "Killing Them Softly," he plays Jackie Cogan, who is a professional enforcer called in to  investigate a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game. Ray Liotta also stars and Andrew Dominik directs.
