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?

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.”

Brad Pitt Talks About Angelina Jolie’s Damehood & Meeting The Queen

Brad Pitt Talks About Angelina Jolie's Damehood & Meeting The Queen

Angelina Jolie was recently made an Honorary Dame Commander by Queen Elizabeth and Brad Pitt couldn’t more pleased at his wife’s honor, but that hasn’t really changed how things work on the home front.

“It was just a pleasure and certainly one for the books,” the proud husband told Us Weekly at the London premiere of Fury on Sunday, October 19. “[It was] a wonderful afternoon for our family, a great honor for Angie and something we won’t forget,” he added at the event which closed the 58th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express, at the Odeon Leicester Square.

Pitt, Jolie, and their brood of six kids came face-to-face with Queen Elizabeth II in room 1844 of the monarch’s London residence on Friday, Oct. 10. Jolie received the award in honor of her humanitarian work, in particular her efforts to combat sexual violence in war-torn regions around the world.

“To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to,” Jolie said previously. “Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.”

So now that Jolie’s an Honorary Dame, does this mean she’s the boss at home? “Aaah, no,” Pitt told Us, laughing. “We have our own pecking order at home!”

Congratulations to Angelina on the honor!

He said, “I grew up in the Ozarks-something resembling Mark Twain country. The woods, rivers, bluffs, lakes and caves have all left an indelible mark on me. And I’m quite reverential when it comes to a tree. On my forearm, I have tattooed 94.9m – the height of the largest sequoia.”

He told the magazine that he always tries to “carve out time for a solo ride in every country I travel to, from the Highlands of Scotland to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco to the belly of India. I haven’t even come close to fulfilling my list – yet. But in the traffic of L.A. with a helmut on, I’m just another a**hole on the rode.”

He added of his rocky start on bikes: “I first rode at age 7 on my cousin’s Honda Mini Trail 50. I tried to jump it and ran it into my grandmother’s car. He was severely pissed off. My first bike was a Kawi 150 enduro. I won it at age 12 in a contest for selling the most pecan log rolls door to door after school. I crashed it four weeks later.”
