The International Herald Tribune (the fakest sounding newspaper ever, btw), is reporting the totally credible sounding story that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are commissioning a yacht for the low low price of $268 million dollars.
“The yacht will be built … by luxury shipbuilder Privilege Yard SpA, which said Wednesday that the couple has commissioned an 85-meter-long (280-foot-long) yacht for €200 million (US$268 million). Delivery is set for July 2009.
The passenger cabin will include two 300-square-meter (3,200-square-foot) apartments, plus two guest suites of 150 square meters (1,600 square feet) each. Other features include a swimming pool, a heliport, speedboats and a small submarine that will allow guests to explore the sea up to a depth of 300 meters (980 feet).”
See, this is the reason I have never liked Angelina Jolie. She tries to be all saintly, giving $2 million to a Vietnamese orphanage, and then goes and splashes out 134 times that much on a yacht for herself. Which is not to say she doesn’t have the right to spend her money however she wants. But just don’t expect everyone to think you’re all humble and saintly as you’re jetting around the Mediterranean on your personal submarine.
Also, have you noticed how you never see Brad Pitt smiling any more? He gets more and more grim in every picture we see. Maybe it’s because his girlfriend is a serial adopter, and just spend his entire life’s income on a totally unnecessary Lara Croft Tomb Raider-inspired sea going vessel. I’m just sayin’, Jennifer Aniston would have never been so irresponsible.
