Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took two of their six kids for a shopping spreeâ€”in Paris. What a way to kick off the Christmas season!Â Why didnâ€™t we think of that? They shopped the Bonpoint boutique, known to be celeb-friendly, which likely means super-expensive, with daughters Shiloh and Zahara, and the girls made use of a special room which holds a kid-sized farmhouse with tunnels to explore. Could that be something like aÂ McDonalds play area, only fancier?
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt shopped like ordinary parents. Well, sort of. The Jolie-Pitts picked up gloves and pajamas, pants and bootsâ€”one pair zebra stripedâ€”sweaters and the sorts of clothing all kids need. They added two knight-in-armor costumes, complete with swords.Â Kids will be kids.Â And a green plastic alligator.Â The alligator, sources report, is â€œfor Knoxâ€. Shiloh wielded one of the swords.
This is a working trip for mom and dad. Angelina Jolie is plugging her new film, â€œA Touristâ€, and Brad Pitt is pushing â€œMegamind 3-Dâ€. But there was plenty of time for fun. The group, with varying pairs of children, also toured thermal baths and the premiere, reports the Huffington Post, of Pittâ€™s â€œMegamindâ€. Among other places.
Naturally, even half a world away, everyone was watching and commenting. Most tourists look at the scenery. The Jolie-Pitts are the scenery. It would be tough to have reporters everywhere evaluating your choice of toys and pjs. Shilohâ€™s well-known tendency to wear boy-styled clothing has made world headlines. Now she has a sword, to go with them.
