Where in the world will Brad Pitt
and Angelina Jolie
tie the knot?
stars have more meaningful places to choose from all over the globe
than most people could hope to see in their lifetime.
Pitt, 48, and Jolie, 36, own Château Miraval in France – a sprawling, scenic potential venue. Recent construction there has sparked rumors that it may be the
place, though locals don't believe the hype.
But the country is dear to Jolie, who gave birth to twins Knox and Vivienne, now 3, in France.
Their Los Angeles home is another possible option, given the intimacy and privacy it would afford them. They also own a home in New Orleans, a city that their children
seem to love.
Speaking of the little Jolie-Pitts, their own birthplaces
are dear to the couple's hearts. Maddox, 10, is from Cambodia; Pax, 8, is from Vietnam
; Zahara, 7, is from Ethiopia; and Shiloh, 5, was born in Namibia.
