Angelina Jolie Almost Bought Hemingway’s Typewriter As A Gift For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie Almost Bought Hemingway's Typewriter As A Gift For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has a problem with buying gifts for her husband Brad Pitt in that what do you get for a man who basically has everything and then some? She tried to purchase one of Hemingway’s typewriters as a gift for her loving husband, but the seller put the kibosh on the deal entirely.

Angelina Jolie put down thousands of dollars on the last typewriter Ernest Hemingway used before killing himself … a $250,000 wedding gift for Brad Pitt … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell us … Angelina’s agent got in touch with L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, who has an unbelievable typewriter collection, including Hemingway’s 1926 Underwood. Get this … Hemingway used the typewriter for his works in the late 1930s, and “For Whom the Bell Tolls” was published in 1940.

We’re told Jolie initially wanted to buy his Tennessee Williams typewriter but he wouldn’t sell it. So then the agent asked if Soboroff would sell one of the 2 Hemingway typewriters he owned … they offered a quarter of a million bucks and it was an offer he couldn’t refuse.

We’re told this summer the agent sent a deposit check from Angelina’s production company — Chivan Productions — for $11,000, but at some point she had a change of heart and cancelled the deal. She didn’t even ask for the money back, but we’re told the check was returned.

BTW … Soboroff has a number of epic typewriters, including those owned by the Unabomber, John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio, and he just snagged Jerry Siegel’s, who used the typewriter to create Superman!

Now that the deal has gone south, I am kind of curious about what she found to replace such an epic gift. What do you think?

Angelina Jolie Covers ‘Vanity Fair'; Talks Marriage & Possible Political Run

Angelina Jolie Covers 'Vanity Fair'; Talks Marriage & Possible Political Run

Angelina Jolie appears on the cover of the latest edition of “Vanity Fair” and inside, she talks about being married to Brad Pitt, their wedding vows and her political aspirations.

Her married life: “It does feel different. It feels nice to be husband and wife.”

Directing her new husband: “A few friends asked if we were crazy . . . [A film about] a married couple going through some difficulties . . . and I’m directing him.”

The vows the kids wrote for them: “They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, ‘Sorry,’ if we do. So they said, ‘Do you?,’ and we said, ‘We do!’ ”

The cake: “There was no cake, so Pax made a cake,” she said, referring to their second-oldest son. “The kids made little pillows for the rings, and Knox practiced [being a ringbearer] with an acorn that kept falling off the pillow. Brad’s mom went and picked some flowers and tied them up.”

She might run for office: “When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility.” Jolie then catches herself. “But I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful—I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible.” In di Giovanni’s last meeting with Jolie, however, Jolie’s opinion seems to have shifted. When directly asked if she sees herself pursuing a life in politics, diplomacy, or public service, Jolie says, “I am open.”

Billy Bob Thornton Talks Angelina Jolie Marriage

Billy Bob Thornton Talks Angelina Jolie Marriage

Angelina Jolie was married to Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003 and in that time, there were so many rumors flying about the twosome. They were said to be vampires and were living in a dungeon. And what about those vials of blood? Billy Bob clears all of that up in a new interview…

He said, “I mean it was a crazy time. I’ve never been fond of it. The vial of blood is very simple. You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in and wear it around your neck? She bought two of those. We were apart a lot because she’s off making ‘Tomb Raider’ and I’m making ‘Monster’s Ball’. She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razor blade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter’s baby hair in one. Same thing. From that, we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks. And we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon.”

There was, in fact, no dungeon, Thornton insists. Reports suggesting there were, were the result of selective hearing.

“I mean, it had some basis in fact. We had a basement which I had a recording studio in. So when I tell a journalist I stay down in the dungeon all the time, you know, recording music, they don’t hear ‘recording music,’ they hear ‘dungeon,'” he explained. “You know, because it makes a better story.”

Jolie and Thornton were married for 3 years between 2000 and 2003. In 2012 the actor told ABC’s Nightline he still had a lot of affection for Jolie.

“We had a great time together,” he said. “We had a great marriage and I chickened out because I didn’t feel good enough. That’s all that happened. It was no big deal, we never hated each other.”

Brad Pitt Changed By Angelina Jolie Marriage

Brad Pitt Changed By Angelina Jolie Marriage

Brad Pitt says that he is surprised at how much his marriage to Angelina Jolie has changed him and their relationship.

After nine years together, the duo finally took the plunge and tied the knot this past August and Pitt said that he didn’t expect things to feel differently, but they do.

In a recent interview with Hello! magazine, he said, “We have six kids so we felt beyond marriage already. But the kids were asking and we thought it would be a lovely thing to do, for them and for us as a family and it was all of that. But I was surprised afterwards at the effect getting married has had on us – it was more than just a ceremony, it meant a real depth of commitment. I feel like a married man – I really do.”

He also talked of the age difference, saying, “We’re probably around the same age maturity-wise – that’s the way it works with men and women right? But I don’t feel any different for having turned 50. I’ve never been one of those guys who counts time or thinks about the five-year plan or the ten-year plan.”

He added, “I’m pretty clear about how I want to live my life and what I want for my family and my wife and kids and that determines how I feel.”
