Angelina Jolie reportedly wants to gain 10lbs before her wedding.
The svelte actress is set to tie the knot with her partner of seven years Brad Pitt this summer and is keen to put on a bit of weight as she wants some curves to fill out her dress. So she and Brad - who raise six children together - have reportedly asked British chef Jamie Oliver to give her recipes for hearty yet healthy meals.
"Angelina has decided she'd like a more shapely figure when she weds Brad and is hoping to gain ten pounds. Brad and Angie have asked Jamie to suggest some recipe ideas for them. Angie never cooks so Brad's now knocking up some English dishes like shepherd's pie and sausage and mash," a source told The Daily Star.
Brad is also keen for Angelina to gain a few pounds as he prefers her when she has a curvier figure. "Bad would love her to have curves like she did when they met on Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004. Jamie has been to Brad and Ange's home numerous times. They have a similar sense of humor and are all down to earth," the source added.
Brad Pitt is taking charge of his wedding to Angelina Jolie. The Moneyball actor is set to wed the Oscar-winning actress - with whom he raises six children with - this summer at their home in the South of France, and he is getting involved in every aspect of the big day as he wants the nuptials to be perfect.
"Brad's been doing extensive renovation on the house and is using a specialist in chateau restoration. Brad's spent over $16 million already. Now he's offering hefty bonuses to workers to complete it by summer. He's even trying to organize an aeroplane landing site in the grounds for guests to come in by private jet - but that's proving rather tricky, what with permits and no-fly zones," a source said.
Brad wants all the food and drink for the reception to be locally produced and has been very involved with the menu. "Brad's been asking all the locals if they'll be able to source produce from the local area for the reception. It's certainly going to be a moment in local history. Brad's been tasting and looking up French dishes for weeks. He wants the perfect menu and, of course, the perfect wine to accompany it. That is all going to be locally sourced, too," the source added to Grazia.
Jack Black has advised Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie their sex life will get better once they are married.
The Hollywood couple made their engagement public last week, and Jack - who has been married to Tanya Haden for six years, with whom he has two sons, Sammy, five, and Thomas, three - thinks things will get hotter between the sheets once they officially tie the knot: "I think the sex actually improves once you've sealed the deal. It gets better. Maybe not for everyone, but for me, once we sealed the deal and we shut off all the exit holes and said, 'No, this is it. We're in it for life,' then we really let loose."
Angelina Jolie cried when Brad Pitt proposed to her. The Moneyball actor spent a year designing the perfect engagement ring for his partner and when he gathered the rest of their family - children Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox - to present it, she was overwhelmed by the gesture.
"Angelina cried and smiled," a source told US Weekly.
The ring was made by jeweler Robert Procop and the tablet-shaped diamond engagement piece is estimated to be worth $500,000.
Jennifer Aniston "always wanted Brad Pitt to be happy."
The actor's ex-wife has nothing but good feelings towards him after his engagement to Angelina Jolie - after seven years together - was made public last week.
"Jen moved on a long time ago, and she is trying to just focus on her own happiness. Jen is not a bitter person and she has always wanted Brad to be happy," a source told People.com.
Jennifer, 43, and Brad, 48, were married for five years before he met Angelina, 36, on the set of 2005 movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Since they split Jennifer has also moved on and is about to celebrate one year with boyfriend Justin Theroux: "Jen spent many happy years with Brad and thinks their divorce was meant to be. She is very happy with Justin - and that's what she is focusing on right now."
Brad and Angelina have yet to set a date for their nuptials.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are planning to move to England for two years. The couple - who lived in the London suburb of Richmond last year while Brad shot World War Z - want to return to the pretty town while Angelina shoots three England-based movies back-to-back.
Filming starts on drama Maleficent next month, then the mother-of-six will join Brad in Ridley Scott's The Counselor before working on a Danny Boyle movie.
"They loved it when they were in the UK last year. They like the culture and are happy for their children to receive schooling here. They think Richmond is a beautiful part of the world. Angelina starts work on her next film, Maleficent, in about three weeks so Brad will look after their brood over summer as he won't start work on the Ridley Scott film until September," a source said.
But with such a hectic work schedule line up, the loved-up pair - who announced their engagement on Friday - still haven't decided when to tie the knot. "No date has been set yet but they'll probably go back to their home in France to get married," the insider said, talking to The Sun.
Angelina Jolie's father is thrilled about her engagement to Brad Pitt.
The Hollywood couple confirmed yesterday that Brad has popped the question to his partner of seven years and Angelina's father Jon Voight couldn't be happier for the pair. "I'm very happy for them," he told US Weekly.
Brad and Angelina's engagement comes after it was revealed the pair may be about to work together for the first time since meeting on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged. The couple have confirmed recent reports that Brad had proposed to his partner of seven years - with whom he raises six children Maddox, 10, Pax, nine, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - although they have not yet set a date for their nuptials.
"Yes, it's confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There's no date set at this time," said Brad's spokeswoman Cynthia Pett-Dante.
Angelina was spotted wearing her engagement ring this week and jeweler Robert Procop - who has previously worked with the actress - revealed he had designed the ring with Brad.
"I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt," Robert's spokesperson said.
"Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suit Angelina's hand. 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," Robert added.
Adam Brody has joked he split up Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt.
The former O.C. star worked alongside Brad on 2005 action movie Mr & Mrs Smith - where he met Angelina Jolie and subsequently left wife Jennifer - and he believes he may have played a hand in the changes in the actor's personal life.
"In terms of [Brad and Angelina], I hooked them up. I was like, 'Brad, you don't want to do this, man, this Jen thing - I don't see it.' He heeded my advice and I'm happy for him," he joked.
Discussing his own career, Adam - who is currently starring in Damsels in Distress, and has previously had parts in Jennifer's Body and The Ring - admits he picks movie roles according to his own personal tastes: "It's funny. I have been practical, but when I do look at my resume it does reflect my taste. Some I like more than others, but it does, by and large, reflect my taste, more than I think it would. [Especially] given how many things I've been willing to do that I don't personally care for."
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly set to marry before autumn. The couple - who are rumored to be expecting twin boys - apparently want to tie the knot in time for the arrival of the babies later this year.
"Angie is expecting twins this fall, so it is making them feel a time crunch. They decided they'd both like to welcome their twin boys to the world as man and wife, which means the wedding has to happen fairly soon. They've both realized how much they want to be together," a source said.
Angelina, 36, and Brad, 48 - who already have children Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - are said to have been through a rocky patch but finally came to the decision to wed after appearing together at last month's Oscars.
"They had an amazing time Oscar weekend, since then, they've been madly in love. The wedding was totally off: They were having so many arguments, but they've finally managed to bury their differences," another source said.
