Humanitarian Angelina Jolie is no stranger to knocking elbows with foreign diplomats. She and fiancé Brad Pitt are looking to expand their family, and have reached out to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has just signed a law prohibiting American families from adopting Russian orphans. But Putin has said he’ll only consider lifting the ban if she and Brad tie the knot in Russia!
An insider reported to National Enquirer, print edition January 21, 2013, “After she asked President Putin to relax his country’s new adoption policy, he agreed to consider it—IF she agrees to marry Brad Pitt in a high profile ceremony in the heart of Moscow or one of the famous palaces in St. Petersburg.” I’m no political analyst, but it sounds like Putin is hoping to get some free tourism ads out of the deal. What loyal fan wouldn’t want to take the Brangelina tour of Russia, following their wedding vacation from location to location?
“Instead of selling her wedding photos for millions and donating the money to charity, Angelina now has the chance to make a political statement with her walk down the aisle,” the source explained. But will Angelina be willing to give up privacy for the sake of an adoption ban? My knowledge of her says yes! Angelina has made a sincere effort to “smooth over strained relations” between Russia and the US. She thinks the new ban is “retaliation against a new US law seeking to punish Russians accused of human-rights violations.” Whatever her reasoning, she has a big decision to make!
The source even hints that this could be the beginning of a political career for Angie, noting that “getting Putin to change Russia’s policy would not only help numerous orphans, but also be a major coup for Angie.” A public wedding wouldn’t be the worst thing. Brad and Angie could celebrate privately, and do the big one for the sake of the kids! And what a great way to commemorate a wedding—by adopting! Do you think Brad and Angelina would consider a big wedding like this, or will they keep it low key and adopt out of a different country?
