  • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to live in France for next three years

    Brad Pitt has revealed that he and his family will make France their home for the next three years.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button star says the lifestyle suits him, Angelina and their brood down to the ground.

    In an interview with Hello! magazine, he revealed: ‘I’ve been dragging them all from continent to continent lately, so we’re going to have to give them a break soon.

    ‘For the long term, right now, we’re choosing France. It’s good living there, a really nice way of life. It’s a place where the kids can run free and not be hassled – we have a good relationship with the locals, and it’s a good base for the family.’

    And cute pa Pitt also took the opportunity to gush about his gorgeous kids, saying: ‘It’s chaos at times but there’s also such joy in our house right now. I look down at the family and I see our boy from Vietnam [Pax] and our daughter from Ethiopia [Zahara] and our girls from Namibia [Shiloh was born there] and our son who’s from Cambodia [Maddox], and… they are all brothers and sisters, man. They are all the same blood.’

    He added: ‘It is such elation to see them all living together, and getting along together, and to know that we were able to give them a home – in some cases, to give them a life. It’s a wonderful thing that we are able to do this because of the jobs we have – and it’s a selfish thing, too, because the rewards are extraordinary.’

    So will the super-rich A-lister lavish his children with luxury gifts for Christmas? Not on your nelly. ‘We do exchange gifts, although we don’t feel any pressure to make them big or expensive gifts,’ he said. ‘We try to keep the money spent to a minimum. The rule is that everyone’s got to make something for someone else, you got to put time into it.’

    And on adding to the clan, he said: ‘We’ve always said that we’ll carry on until we find a reason to stop doing this – and, no, we haven’t found that reason yet.’
