Is Brad Pitt Getting a Heart-Shaped Island for his Big 5-0?


December 18th is fast approaching, and you know what that means. One week until Christmas? Yes, sure, but of equal importance in the Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt household: Papa Brad’s 50th birthday.

According to reports, Jolie, recognizing Pitt’s avid love for architect Frank Lloyd Wright, purchased Petra, the $20-million dollar island fifty-miles from New York City. The 11-acre island contains two Lloyd Wright-designed properties — a 5,000-square foot main residence and a 1,200 square-foot cottage — as well as a landing pad for drop-in visitors (like us?).

And while, sure, buying islands can be categorized as “excessive”, they’re both above decent actors and it’s as good an opportunity as any to revisit the fact that Brad & Angie do a lot of good for the non-island-buying populous:
