Jolie Wedding Gift To Pitt: Angelina Jolie Eyed Ernest Hemingway's ...

Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie‘s wedding gift for her husband was supposed to be a historic typewriter, but she had a change of heart. According to TMZ, Jolie contacted L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, who has an impressive typewriter collection.

Jolie told Soboroff that she wanted to purchase his Tennessee Williams typewriter as a wedding gift for Brad Pitt. Despite offering an impressive amount of money, Soboroff told her no.

Angelina Jolie opted to buy a 1926 Underwood that belonged to Ernest Hemingway. It is believed to the be the last typewriter used by the Nobel Prize winner before he committed suicide in July of 1961 in Ketchum, Idaho.

Hemingway used that same typewriter to give life to For Whom the Bell Tolls, which was published in 1940. Angelina Jolie offered to pay $250,000 for the typewriter and Soboroff accepted.

Angelina’s production company’s Chivan Productions mailed an $11,000 check as deposit, but had a change of heart. Jolie decided to get Pitt another wedding gift, but never asked Soboroff for the $11,000 back.

Soboroff opted not to keep the money and returned it to Jolie. While the world will never know what Pitt received as wedding gift, Jolie is willing to share what they said as vows.

Jolie and Pitt, who wed in France, had a portion of their wedding vows written by their children, Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and twins, Knox and Vivienne, 6. Jolie said:

“They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, ‘Sorry,’ if we do,” she spilled. “So they said, ‘Do you?,’ and we said, ‘We do!'”

The actress, who lived with Pitt for 8 years before getting married, added:

“It feels nice to be husband and wife.It does feel different.”

After a successful acting career, a family and marriage, it appears that Jolie is thinking about running for office. She explained:

“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.”
