Magazine cover for charity, round three? It was revealed Monday night that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have given photos of their wedding to People and Hello! magazines.
People snagged the front of Jolie’s dress and a pic with the kids, while Hello! has a shot showing off the children’s artwork sewn into that dress, and a snapshot of the power couple powerfully kissing.
The most famous couple in movies managed to pull off a completely secret, surprise wedding on Aug. 23rd. So, seems odd they’d then share the pics, right?
But the choices of People and Hello! are familiar.
The first pics of the pair’s first biological child, Shiloh, went to those mags in 2006.
According to Forbes, People paid $4.1 million for them, Hello! $3.5, and all the proceeds went to charities for African children.
Again, the pics were sold to People and Hello!, reportedly for about $15 million total.
In 2011 Pitt touched on the subject with NPR, calling certain photogs "stalkerazzi": “We figured ... instead of that money going to people I do not respect, we would make some good out of it."
Still, while paparazzi certainly could get the first photos of a baby out in the world, the wedding seems to have been a pretty closed-door affair. So, were these photos sold for charity? No word from Pitt or Jolie. Or...is Jolie now Pitt?
