Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie-Pitt and Brad Pitt are reportedly looking for a new residence in London. A source revealed that the couple’s potential move is for the actress to learn more about political issues in the European Union.
A source told Us Weekly that the “Maleficent” actress and her husband has been house hunting in London, and even toured a Westminster mansion in June. The house features seven bedrooms and costs $39 million. However, the couple has yet to finalize the real estate transaction.
“It’s a huge investment. Neither of them wants to throw down that amount of cash,” the insider said.
The magazine’s source also shared that the “By the Sea” director is in no hurry to make a “sudden career change” given that “she doesn’t want to lose her directing momentum.”
Aside from the house hunt tour in June, the Hollywood couple visited London so that Jolie could attend a luncheon as part of her work on U.K. foreign policy and ongoing campaign to end sexual violence crimes. The two also had tea with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they discussed “combatting the illegal wildlife trade,” according to a Kensington Palace spokesperson, who exclusively gave details about the visit.
Meanwhile, Jolie is not the only one busy with humanitarian work. The “Fight Club” actor has also helped replace many houses destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans 10 years ago. According to Australia’s Domain, Pitt, through his foundation, “Make it Right,” has managed to build 109 colorful and eco-friendly homes in New Orleans.
Pitt and his team are aiming to build 150 houses in the hard-hit area Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans. Twenty internationally renowned architects, including Frank Gehry, designed the tall and solar-paneled homes. The houses were built using reusable, non-toxic materials and were filled with energy-efficient appliances. Pitt even shared that he felt “fantastic” when a resident he talked to told the actor his utility bill was “24 bucks or something.”
“It’s a reminder of why we’re there,” Pitt said.
