The Brangelina clan added more stamps to their passports last week as they traveled from Tokyo to Vietnam. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took their six children to Vietnam, where their son Pax was born, after premiering Brad's latest movie, Moneyball, in Japan.
The couple wanted Pax to visit his home country so he could better understand, and be proud of, his culture. "They are all learning about each other's cultures as well as being proud of their own," Jolie recently said of her three adopted children.

With two busy careers, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt never seem to be in one place for very long. This week the couple, along with their entire brood, moved into a $11 million mansion in Qrendi, Malta where Brad started filming his next movie, World War Z.
On Tuesday night, the couple brought a few of Brad's co-workers out to Trattoria Da Pippo in the nearby capital of Valletta, where they enjoyed a feast of Antipasto of parma ham, salami, Maltese sausage and maltese goat cheese, mussels, pasta with clams, sea urchins, veal with parma ham and sage, plus king prawns and fried calamari.

We knew Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were going to have a good night in Cannes, but we didn't think it would be this good! After premiering Brad's new movie, the highly anticipated Tree of Life, at the Palais des Festivals, the couple joined a few of their celeb friends, including Naomi Campbell, at the L'Affable restaurant to celebrate.
L'Affable is a pretty affordable place when it's not Film Festival season. A prix fixe dinner menu runs 39 Euros, whereas lunch of a few courses is only 25 Euros.
Though Brad and Ange looked flawless when they arrived at the place, by the time they emerged a few hours later, he had an ear-to-ear grin and she looked completely disheveled, with messy hair, smeared make-up and glassy eyes. We're not sure what happened inside the party, but based on the looks of Brangelina, we're guessing a lot of alcohol was involved!

There was once a big budget action movie called "Edwin A. Salt" that starred Tom Cruise. Cruise opted out while the movie was in pre-production and rather than find a new male lead, the producers changed the character’s gender and brought on Angelina Jolie. Jolie’s character, now named Evelyn A. Salt, is a CIA agent wrongly accused of being a spy who goes on a quest to prove her innocence.
The bulk of "Salt" will be filmed in New York City and in the old Grumman Aerospace Factory in Bethpage, New York. Grumann was the largest employer on Long Island during the Cold War and one of the largest producers of military aircraft in its heyday.
But before they begin filming in NYC, the movie is filming in Washington D.C. for the next two weeks. Rumor has it, Brad is with Ange in D.C. and will be meeting with Nancy Pelosi today to kill time while Angie's working. Yesterday morning, they filmed scenes at the Mandarin Oriental in SW Washington, DC. Hope Angie doesn’t mind some noise and strong scents. Last year, a review of the hotel found its surroundings to be a bit too noisy and the smell of air-freshener overwhelming.

Angelina Jolie had her halo pretty much intact at the BAFTAs when it was revealed that she’d come to London straight from Thailand, where she’d been working with Myanmar cyclone victims. But not all her family are so angelic, if reports are to be believed.
The Sun newspaper is reporting that the four elders of the Pitt-Jolie Brood (from Maddox down to Shiloh) ran riot in the corridors of the Dorchester hotel when mum and dad were are the award ceremony on Sunday night.
Brangelina had booked out nearly the entire third floor of the Park Lane hotel, and, according to the paper, told the kids they could play outside their suite. A disgruntled neighbour is claiming that they took that as an excuse to “run up and down the hallway for over an hour”. Quite why they’d want to leave the suite in the first place is beyond us – at £4000 a night, we’re assuming it was pretty stacked with things to do.
Angie recently boasted to Entertainment Tonight that the seasoned little travelers like packing. Maybe she should have a word with them about how to be good hotel guests. Or at least slip some eyemasks into their cases next time round.

They faked us out once before, so we'll be super careful in announcing that allegedly Angelina Jolie checked into a hospital yesterday to go on bed rest before she gives birth to the latest Super World Travelers, the twins she is expecting with Brad Pitt.
The babes, reportedly twin girls, will have dual French citizenship because she's currently resting in L'Hopital Lenval in Nice.
"Entertainment Tonight" led the charge in late May to declare that the twins, reportedly due in August, had already been born. Turned out it was just a rumor, possibly spread by an ex-Super Traveler sidekick (er, assistant). This time it was the French media's turn to jump the gun on the planned expansion to America's real first family. But if she were just there for a checkup, would her obstetrician be giving a press conference? We think not!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had a quiet date night on Saturday in London after arriving at Luton Airport earlier that day. This time, the Super World Travelers are promoting Jolie's turn as Grendel's mom in Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf"--and maybe we weren't paying attention in English class, but we didn't realize Grendel's mom was so good-looking. Brangelina braved the paparazzi's flashes to enjoy a dinner of Japanese food at Roka.
Most of Luton Airport's business comes not from private-jet fliers, but from budget carriers like easyJet and Ryanair. (The all-business class airline Silverjet operates there, too.) It's even the subject of a reality series in the UK. So the next time someone gives you grief for not flying through Heathrow, tell them, "If it's good enough for Brangelina..."

Remember when Senator John McCain told CNN Iraq was so safe he could walk through its neighborhoods--and then he did so with like 100 armed guards? Well, sir, Angelina Jolie has just upped the ante. The actress and Original Super World Traveler snuck off to a UN refugee camp in Iraq yesterday to talk to displaced people trying to gain admittance to Syria. As a goodwill ambassador she has also visited camps in Sierra Leone, Pakistan and Sudan's Darfur region.
Obviously Jolie had her bodyguard present, and probably other back-up support. But just wait till you see our "Angelina '08" bumper stickers! (As a Super World Traveler, she'll be a lock for our candidate travel map.)
The State Department's guidelines on Iraq travel note that terrorists are targeting civil aviation, vehicular travel within the country is very dangerous and that "the Embassy can provide only limited emergency services to U.S. citizens in Iraq."
Welcome home, Super World Travelers! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie touched down in Chicago yesterday with their entire clan, after going from Prague to Vietnam and everywhere in between.
Angelina is putting the finishing touches on "Wanted," the thriller she was shooting in Prague earlier this summer. Too bad she's not back there because in Chicago, she'll have to share her turf with the cast of "The Dark Knight," the new Batman movie.
Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and Aaron Eckhart have all been spotted in and around the W Lakeshore Hotel, which is apparently quite Gothamesque.
According to ever-reliable Star Magazine, Angelina Jolie is a very special kind of Super World Traveler...a teleporting one. Despite People's reports that Angie spent at least Friday in Vietnam, Star put her in Santa Monica with son Maddox that morning. Yeah, we know about the date line, but this one's not happening.
Star claims that a "source" spotted Ms. Jolie and her son at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica (the hotel's celebrity fans include Britney Spears) on Friday morning. She supposedly plunked down $700--a nightly rate--for a 2 hour stay she wanted to use just for freshening up.
That's a standard Shutters bathroom above--you can take a full Flash tour on their website. Shutters pushes its amenities--everything from the bathrobe to the shampoo--pretty hard on its page, so you can purchase the same stuff celebrities have used according to sources, perhaps or perhaps not during a $700, 2 hour stay. And to think we've ever balked at a sub-$700 late check out fee. How pedestrian!

Just one half of Brangelina escaped the cold this weekend and skipped out on playoff football games, taking a quick surprise trip to Vietnam.
Reports say that Angie arrived solo on Friday morning in Ho Chi Minh City, sparking rumors that she and Brad Pitt plan on adopting from Vietnam. The two visited Vietnam together back in November, when they were snapped riding a motorcycle through the city together (not usually so easy for the first-time tourist) and reportedly stayed at the Park Hyatt Hotel.
According to People, Angelina was there to make an appearance on behalf of the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Project, the charity she founded to aid son Maddox's birthplace, Cambodia. HCM City seems to be turning into one of her favorite destinations in the region--but does Jolie read Noodlepie?
The Super World Travelers are back in the U.S. for good, at least for a while. Brad and Angelina have announced they've bought a $3.5 million, six-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath mansion (their fourth house) in New Orleans' French Quarter, and they intend to stay.
The pair will settle down from their crazy-hectic schedules of jetting around the world to stay in town while Brad films The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Angelina plans on playing it low-key and befriending the local soccer mom set, saying:
"We love it there. The kids are going to go to school there. We're really looking forward to it."Apparently they've already been mixing with the locals too, seen at Angeli on Decatur, a popular (cash only) pizza joint in the French Quarter--perfect for kids, of course. May we suggest Zagat's new guide to New Orleans dining if they're looking for variety?
