Angelina and Brad were engaged on Friday after seven years together
So that’s why Angelina and Brad have taken so long to get engaged… Brad Pitt was having all the world’s remaining diamonds dug up to give to Angie.
With no consideration for the fact that his 36-year-old wife-to-be will now is develop an enormous muscular left arm thanks to the weight of the thing on her hand, Brad has given his betrothed a staggeringly large flawless emerald cut diamond set in an art deco band of yet more slim (also flawless) emerald diamonds, cut so that they perfectly fit Angie’s finger.
According to legend (for it is already thus), 48-year-old Brad, who proposed last week in New Orleans, designed the ring over the course of a year with the help of jeweller Robert Procop. The resulting bling has been deemed by the mercenary few to be worth between $250k and $1m, depending on whose hyperbole you tune in to.
Procop’s peeps said Brad had a ‘vision’ for the ring that he wanted to realise. ‘He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect,’ they said. ‘Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.’
The two, who have previously said they wouldn’t wed until gay marriages became legal in the United States, reportedly succumbed to pressure from their six children to get engaged. Let’s hope the Republican party don’t get voted in at the next election or Angie and Brad are in for a long engagement. Yet another reason to vote Democrat.
- Yet more cuteness. We give it two years tops… (Joke. Obviously)
Angelina Jolie opted for her signature look at the Oscars, black dress, stunning face.
But one thing was different with the actress last night – she went to painstaking lengths to show off her thigh through her Atelier Versace velvet gown – stretching it out at every opportunity and almost pulling a muscle in the process.
Usually aloof, it’s not like Ange to care so much about her appearance, making us wonder if something other than a leg spasm is going on ….you heard it here first.
Angelina on the cover of Marie Claire
Angelina covers U.S. Marie Claire’s January issue, and talks about Brad (natch), babies and buddies. Discussing life outside of films and family, Angelina said she’s a homebody who doesn’t find it easy to make female friends.
‘It was nice for me to play with other girls; I don’t really have girlfriends in movies, if you’ve noticed,’ she said.
‘Well, I have a few girlfriends, I just… I stay at home a lot. I’m just not very social. I don’t do a lot with them, and I’m very homebound. I’ll talk to my family, I talk to Brad … But I don’t know, I don’t have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to.
One girl she does find time for though is Gwen Stefani, whom she has known since 1998. The two got their broods together for a playdate when the Jolie-Pitts were in London earlier this year.
‘Somehow Gwen and I keep ending up pregnant at the exact same time,’ Jolie has said. All of the kids are very close in age. They’ve attended each other’s birthday parties and gotten together several times at each other’s homes.’
What we wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall…
