Brangelina in Berlin Pitt and Jolie Coming to Germany?
Good news for Berlin's real estate market: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have bought a loft apartment in eastern Berlin, according to a magazine report. They may even move there.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, here in Ho Chi Minh City last November, may be considering a move to Berlin.
The magazine, which was launched on Wednesday, said the 600 square-meter (6,450 square foot) apartment is in an unassuming part of town near Alexanderplatz square.
Pitt and Jolie have visited Berlin a number of times and Jolie recently told Britain's OK! magazine that they will move to Europe. The couple owns an apartment in Paris as well.
Brangelina would add some Hollywood glamour to Berlin which is rolling out the red carpet for a number of stars attending the Berlin Film Festival starting on Thursday.
If confirmed, the purchase is a further image boost for Berlin's property market following increasing reports that foreign investors are being attracted by the low price of real estate in the German capital. Not that price is likely to have been a major factor in Brangelina's case.
Berlin's mayor Klaus Wowereit has made a point of wooing Hollywood stars and directors to make films in the cash-strapped city since he took office in 2001. Tom Cruise is regularly spotted here and declared during a meeting with Wowereit that he had a "very special relationship" with Berlin.
