Brad Pitt reportedly acquires marriage license, will Brangelina marry in 90 days?

This story comes from The Sun UK, one of the worst and most unreliable tabloids out there. But! I want to believe this story. I want to believe that Brad Pitt just returned to LA from France because he went in person to whatever French governmental office to procure a marriage license. I want to believe that Brangelina will marry within the next 90 days. I want to believe that Brad and Angelina are trying to passive-aggressively steal Jennifer Aniston’s thunder, and that the tabloids will finally get their real-life “Battle of the Bridezillas & Groomzillas, Celebrity-Style.” Shhh… let us pray.

GOOD job BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE have the booze sorted for their wedding thanks to their new range of plonk. The rest of their plans for the big day wouldn’t look out of place on an episode of Don’t Tell The Bride.

Brad got a wedding licence at the end of last month — which stated they must marry in 90 days. The deadline could see the big day for the pair clash with the nuptials of Brad’s ex JENNIFER ANISTON — which would spark a bitter bun-fight over celeb guests.

A source said: “Brad and Angelina left themselves short of time to sort out their wedding because of the license deadline. A few months is nothing when you’re planning a wedding — especially one as major as theirs. Everything points to them getting married in May just after the Cannes Film Festival ends, because they’ve got their hearts set on tying the knot in France.”

Jennifer is finalising her plans to walk down the aisle with screenwriter fiancé JUSTIN THEROUX. There was talk she would go to Brad’s wedding, despite him leaving her for Angelina.

But the source added: “All that goodwill would go out the window if Brad’s wedding date comes close to hers. Jennifer will see it as an attempt to upstage her and there will be a battle over Hollywood guests.

“She knows they will be judged on who had the better wedding by pulling in the biggest stars. Jennifer seems miles ahead of Brad when it comes to planning. She’s already picked out her and Justin’s rings, and her dress.”

But Brad was spotted storming around Paris at the weekend, black folder in hand, visiting shops including an interior design consultancy.

He and Angelina are said to have their hearts set on marrying at the chapel on their £35million Chateau Miraval estate in France — where their wine is produced. But stuffy French officials say a law bars couples from tying the knot anywhere except town halls.

[From The Sun UK]

I think the whole “battle over wedding guests” thing is crap. I don’t believe Brad and Angelina care about having any A-list guests at their wedding – their wedding will probably just include the kids, Brad’s family, and maybe a handful of their closest friends. And if French laws dictate that the couple needs to marry in a town hall… so be it! That would be very cute, if they just did a simple town hall civil service and then did a big party/reception at their chateau. Why not? As for Jennifer Aniston’s wedding… Hawaii, maybe? Or LA. Or Mexico. Beachy, but she and Justin will have a lot of industry guests and it will be a big “thing”.

    Heck yeah, now THIS is news..forget about beiber, brown and all those other fcuk ups, lol.

    • V4Real says:

      Wouldn’t they both have to go and acquire the license, since they both have to present ID and sign papers. If that’s how they do it in France, then I’m flying over there to procure a marriage license for me and RDJ or Chris Evans, if it’s that easy.

      If this works people I will send you all a “keep the date.”

      • BeesKnees says:

        I remember when I went to get my marriage license years ago, there was a woman who came in by herself with all her fiance’s information and got the license. I don’t think both people need to be present but many people probably like to go together for the romantic aspect I guess.

      • V4Real says:


        Somethings a little fishy about that. I’ve been married before and we both had to be present to obtain the license. The clerk has to see you both to make sure the names and photos match the people standing in front of them and that both parties are willing participants. It’s feasible that a person could have stolen or taken someone’s info without their knowledge. Maybe the clerk where you were dropped the ball. Well let me just say in the State of NY both parties have to be present; that’s the law.

        Since it’s Brad and Angie, who are well known maybe the government broke the rule for them.

      • Dap says:

        No marriage licence in France

      • French Reader says:

        Good question. All I know is the couple both have to be present at the ceremony to sign some more papers anyway, with at least two witnesses. You can’t just do it by the mail. Couples can only get married in the city/town/village in which they reside (if the future bride and groom don’t live in the same city, they can choose between two), so I guess it will be in whatever village Miraval is in. A public announcement (bann of marriage) also has to be put up outside the townhall at least ten days before the ceremony (the ceremony’s date doesn’t appear on the bann though). Basically, if they choose to marry in France, they’re going to have a hard time keeping it a secret. Although, the French equivalent of the state attorney can waive the bann of marriage in very few exceptional cases. That’s how no one saw Sarkozy’s wedding coming.

      • V4Real says:

        @Dap then this story is definetely BS. If there is no marriage licrnse in France then why would Brad need to go to the French government office to procure one?

      • French Reader says:

        From the bit of googling I did, it looks like people who marry in France but are not French may sometimes need to get some paperwork at the consulate. Maybe that’s what he was doing, and the papers are winging it and saying he got a marriage license.

      • JaneFr says:

        There’s no mariage license in France.
        You have to fill and signe a file, supply all your informations and identities papers to the townhall of a city one of the fiances actualy reside in. Then said townhall will take a few weeks to make sure there’s no legal hindrance to the wedding.
        The legal weddind will then take place in said townhall, and is most of the time celebrated by the mayor.

      • Dap says:

        The DM say BP was in Paris to buy some furniture…which makes sense since he was photographed going in and out of a furniture shop.

      • V4Real says:

        Buying furniture is one thing; getting a marriage license is something different all together; unless the outside of the store reads’ Come get marriage license and while you wait check out our furniture selection.

        I guess we’ll see in about 90 days.

  2. Chicagogurl17 says:

    Not buying this crap.

    I would kill for Jolie’s hair color.

  3. Lauren says:

    He said “The time is nigh” and “It’s soon” what, four months ago? Colour me skeptical.

    And don’t you have to live in France for a while before the wedding? Isn’t there some law about posting Banns?

    • Gemini08 says:

      They’ve lived in France for years. They own a home there and Angelina gave birth there.

      • Lauren says:

        Sure, they’ve lived off and on in France though the years, but you must be in residence (Jolie is currently in L.A.) for 40 days prior to the wedding. 50 days including the period of posting the Banns. So don’t hold your breath is all I’m saying.

        Also giving birth in the country and having a home there does not make you a resident. Living there for more than 6 months of the year and applying for residency visa does. I doubt the Jolie-Pitss do reside there for more than 3 months at a time, if only for tax purposes.

  4. spinner says:

    Yeah…I knew the tabloids would try to position it this way. I guess we will have to wait & see.
    Do I believe this story? No.

    • Cameron says:

      ITA, I don’t know much about the Sun I believe it’s the british version of Star/enquirer here in the Us.. So I’m sure it’s not true. But I think the B/A already got married . Their reps never confirmed or denied they got married back in December..I think they pulled a Janet Jackson..

  5. Joanna says:

    The woman looks gorgeous on the first photo.

  6. truthSF says:

    I freaking love that yellow gown on Angelina…Perfection!!

  7. How is it even possible that Angelina Jolie is human?! She is seriosly so gorgeous that she’s got to be extra-terrestrial!

  8. Toot says:

    Damn! I was excited until I saw the source. LOL

    I do agree though that whenever thay get married there will be no large affair.

  9. Elisabeth says:

    Brad looks like a wax figurine in the 3rd pic down (angie in yellow dress)

  10. aims says:

    If this is true, Chelsea Handler is pissed. How dare they do this to her bff!! Lol

  11. mkyarwood says:

    If Jen picked her dress already, it’s NOT going to be on the beach.

  12. Thinker says:

    The French separate the concepts of church and state to what some consider the point of enforced secularism (I bet this appeals to brad).

    The practical result is that many French couples have 2 weddings. The first wedding usually takes place at the town hall with very few guests, just the couple and two witnesses. My cousin married a French Catholic. They had a small civil ceremony, then a large Catholic wedding complete with a two hour long mass service (torture…) The party afterwards made up for it, we all stayed a long weekend on a beautiful estate in Provence.

    Anyway that’s just how the French do weddings. State wedding, then whatever else the couple wants.

  13. GoodCapon says:

    I don’t think they’d marry in France. Just a hunch.

    But this is The Sun, and they’re the shittiest tabloid out there.

  14. T says:

    I really couldnt care less. They are all so boring.

  15. jo says:

    there is no “marriage license” in France. You need to announce your wedding publicly at least ten days before it

  16. The Original G says:

    The story is rubbish, of course.

    I can see a June wedding in France, with family and friends and with family and their children staying over the summer. Kind of like the Turks and Caicos Christmas.

  17. lisa says:

    JA will ice up her nips, put on a bikini and marry on the most public beach in cabo. so the weddings really arent going to be similar.

  18. megsie says:

    These two do nothing for me. Completely meh.
    But why tease the press with “the time is nigh” comments? If you want a secret wedding, keep your mouth shut about it.

  19. Dap says:

    There is nothing like a “marriage licence” in France. And there is, of course, nothing like a 90-days-limit attached to this non-existing marriage licence. So…end of the story. Nice try, Sun. Next time, try to, I don’t know… check wikipedia before printing news that makes you look like an idiot?

  20. Hubbahun says:

    “I don’t believe Brad and Angelina care about having any A-list guests at their wedding” OH PLEASE!!!

    • ana says:

      Why OH PLEASE? Do they ever have celebrity filled birthdays or kid’s birthdays? Do they regularly attend celebrity bashes and parties? I haven’t seen ONE indication that they want big “A-list guest” wedding.
      Have I missed something?

      • Hubbahun says:

        Just that these two are as big famewhores as anyone else in Hollywood. I refer you to ‘the leg’. (And I don’t mean to cause offence to anyone here :D ) Also, when was the last time either of these people dated anyone who wasn’t in the business? It’s just the double standard that bothers me.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Hubbahun, who wrote: “Just that these two are as big famewhores as anyone else in Hollywood.”

        And still, they’re not the ones who have gone to “People” magazine twice now in the last month with news about their engaged status and their upcoming wedding/guest list/bridesmaid woes.

        “As big famewhores as anyone else in Hollywood?” I can think of at least two other people who have top billing in that regard. :)

    • Hipocricy says:

      Aniston needs all the A list stars possible to make people forget that…NO family members of hers will be present.

      One has a serious problem when not one of their family member, siblings included is ever there during the most important events in life and that pittbulls like Handler will be in front stage instead….so pathetic and immoral.

      And her pittbull has the nerves to call a woman who supposedly has no female friends…demonic. What does it says about a woman who has no ties with anyone of her family members ? LUCIFER ?

      • lee says:

        yikes. I mean, I agree with the Chelsea comments, but that stuff about her family is way harsh! I don’t even like Aniston (and I flat out don’t buy her whole engagement since in what world would this man who was living with his long-term girlfriend for 14 years suddenly decide he wanted marriage after only dating Aniston for like a year?), but some people have terrible family members and/or awful family histories that don’t necessarily reflect on them as people. That doesn’t make them the devil!

      • Hipocricy says:

        @ Lee

        It’s not as harsh as telling Jolie demonic for supposedly not having female friends.

        if ALL of Aniston relatives, not one are always absent when there is an event dear to her heart then something isn’t right with her. The constant reminder of her saying that her family is her friends is also suspicious…like she needs that to justify her estrangement from her own family as a whole.

        She has Two half brothers, one of whom was her father figure when her father left, a sister in law she was seen with more often years ago, two or three nephews.

        I am sorry. If her BFF think Jolie who has been seen with some girlfriends, who is publicly reconciled with an immoral father and has never insulted him even after the nasty stuff he said about her (Aniston called her mother a desease) who is worse than Aniston’s mother would ever be is the one who is demonic, what does it say about jen and her strange relationship with ALL the members of her family ?

        Why is her PittBull the one at her side CONSISTENTLY when events that are dear to her heart take place and not one of her half brother for exemple…or at least at times ?

        Jolie’s insane father is present, as well as her brother when something important happen in Jolie’s life. When he wasn’t present, it was her brother ALL the time. For Aniston it’s Handler more than any member of her family in each and every occasion.

        I am sorry but THIS raise serious questions and say more about Aniston’s than about her family behaviour towards her.

      • mimifarrow says:

        Hey now, easy on the pitbulls. Handler’s more like…an Orc.

      • Mona says:

        Right on Hipocricy. I could understand falling out with some rellies, but not associating with one (1) family member? Clearly she is very anti-family and has real social problems. There is certainly something very very wrong and abnormal with her.

    • Lily25 says:

      I really don’t understand how haters can say that Brad and Angelina are the biggest famewhores with a straight face. They almost never go to celebrity parties/events, they go months without being seen, and they give few interviews. Everything about them says A-list doesn’t matter. Whereas several times a year Jennifer Aniston goes on very public vacations with only celebrities, she did a bunch interviews this year just to promote her relationship. Maybe there’s something about the name Jennifer but Jennifer Garner is photographed everyday with her kids even before the Oscar campaign. I don’t care that people hate them but at least do it for legitimate reasons.

  21. yolo112 says:

    Oh. My. Gawd.
    Will it EVER stop?!? **sigh** I fully believe that the tabloids will pit these two against each other until death.

    But goodness, AJ is so freaking beautiful..ugh.. especially when you continue to scroll down and see vanilla JA and her cookie cutter hipster wanna be.

    • The Original G says:

      Personally, I think it ends when Jen ties the knot (or gets fat). There’s no turning back after that. That’s Jen’s power. Being single and sad.

      • yolo112 says:

        …eeehhhhhh… Jen is much to vain to get fat. I don’t see it ending any time soon…I mean, it’s already been what?? Eight, nine years??? And the tabloids are still using it as a major cash cow..

      • Hipocricy says:

        Aniston is so vain, immature and obsesssed with the JPs, that i wouldn’t put behind her to extend her coatailriding and competition obsession to the JP Kids in 10+ years from now.

        Even when Jolie retires from Hollywood, she will find a way to redirect the compettion to her children if they become public person just to stay in the limelight cause she is shameless and her ilk and her have no moral when it’s about the JP kids.

        And being the desperate ex wife of Brad Pitt has be her primal goodwill and she will exploite that ‘business’ the longest possible cause she is too mediocre to bet on her own talent.

        After all, this is a woman who will turn 50 in 6 years from now, who has been with Pitt lesser than Jolie’s, who has had a string of lovers after that and who still coatail them till this day and let her bulldog do her dirty job even at the eve of her marriage with another man…Justin will have to learn to live in the footsteps of Brad’s shadow for the rest of his life…That’s why i have less faith in that marriage than in the JP’s union because no man can accept living in a triangle where the third party is the ever present shadow of an ex…

      • yolo112 says:

        **golf clap**
        Bravo, hipocricy, bravo!!

    • Happymom says:

      Maybe it would die if Chelsea Handler didn’t continue to stir it up.

  22. Micki says:

    I think Bragelina will upstage Jennifer any time with no effort.

  23. andrea says:

    That first picture of them together… I miss what real, bonafide celebrity movie stars look like. With the Brange pretty much absent since The Leg, it’s been left to George. And for every George on the red carpet, there are a hundred D-listers trying to look like they matter.

    So The Sun is really going to try to make this celebrity wedding-off happen? Pfft. Slow news day.

  24. palermo says:

    Does anybody care at this point? Maybe they should wait until they have 18 kids

  25. Melissa says:

    Those pics of them really show how far Brad has fallen in the looks department. He’s not looking so good lately.

    • WTF says:

      Yup, that’s the same thing the “trolls” said prior to him shooting Moneyball. Remember that crazy bread he grew? Yet, with a haircut and shave he was STILL as handsome as ever.

    • andrea says:

      Yeah, but he cleans up well. I think age and 6 kids have mellowed out his vanity quite a bit, but he always manages to look decent for the red carpet or a role, if it’s required.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Melissa, who wrote: “Those pics of them really show how far Brad has fallen in the looks department. He’s not looking so good lately.”

      Yes, because we all know that when he was with Jen he looked better … he was faster, stronger, younger, able to leap tall buildings, all because of the pure innocent love graced upon him by sweet ‘all natural’ Jen.

    • Esmom says:

      Please. Even at his worst, he blows the average guy his age (think paunchy, balding, dad jeans-wearing) out of the water with his looks.

      If a dad who looked like him strolled onto the playground in my town, heads would be turning so fast that necks would be sprained.

    • ??? says:

      FFS! A favorable take on the Brange is worth just as much as an unfavorable one. No need to cry “troll” or lasso Aniston in to every last comment that expresses a less-than-mushy-gushy opinion of these two.
      If Brad and Angelina don’t care about what others think of them, why should anyone else?!

      • Melissa says:

        Thank you, ???! None of the three of them would make me go to, or not go to, a movie purely b/c they were in it. I just don’t think he’s aging terribly well. The scraggly beard was obviously not helping matters, but even with that gone, I think he’s definitely lost something. Some people peak young, whereas others ages really well. I just think he falls into the former category.

  26. my .02 says:

    I am so out of the mainstream when it comes to my idea of what is “attractive” in a woman. I think Angelina looks like a crack ho’ someone tried to do a Pretty Woman transformation on in that last pic. She just looks all strung out and scary thin. I know this is considered attractive, but I think all the Hollywood women with their scarecrow faces and bodies look just as horrible. Ugh.

  27. whisper says:

    Thing is, they’re not A List in terms of talent, only in terms of glamour. But those photos were from ages ago, before Brad turned into a gnarly homeless person with no personal hygiene habits and Angie turned into a scrawny old crone.

    • Kim says:

      Yet you continue to look at them I don’t look at people I think are ugly LOL

    • The Original G says:

      Even if that were true, it’s OK. They’ve got much more going for them than their looks!

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      The pictures of her in the yellow dress were early in their relationship, maybe 2006, and the one in the black mini is from the (Japanese??) premiere of Salt.
      They (especially Brad) look good when they want to. It particularly amazes me how young Brad looks when he shaves his beard off. He certainly doesn’t look to be almost 50 to me.

      • RobN says:

        Don’t know how old you are, but I’m 48 and Brad doesn’t look any younger than all my male friends in that age group who have managed to hang onto their hair. Once you’re a man in your 40′s it’s all about the hair.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Mr. Smurf, who wrote: “The pictures of her in the yellow dress were early in their relationship, maybe 2006″

        Actually, the photos with Angie in the yellow dress are from the 2007 Cannes Red Carpet.

        In an earlier post I said this photo was from 2005, but I was mistaken.

      • Janet says:

        The picture of Angie in the yellow dress is from Cannes in 2007.

      • Hipocricy says:

        @ RobN

        It’s not just about the hair, it’s about the beer belly most definitely.

        Most men who hit 40, hell most men in the US who hit 25 years of age have a beer belly and a flat booty with no definition whatsoever.

        Pitt during those 30 years in front of the public eye has maintained a nice shapely body all around, from neck to legs, to booty. He has consistenly kept the same shape while others at time became a little bloated outside the time when they have to make a movie, hitting the gym.

        I know they are stars and all and have money and time to stay in shape, but i don’t know when this guy exercise with all those kids to keep the same shape throughout all these years even when he doesn’t work on movies.

  28. KellyinSeattle says:

    I love brangelina!! She is so beautiful and is in a way that seems effortless; few people have that quality.

  29. Jm says:

    BS story. Brange promote their movies and projects. Their family life seems as private as they can make it considering the circumstances.

    Aniston promotes . . . her hair?

  30. OhMyGawh says:

    Can the tabloids stop linking Pitt and Aniston? Both parties have moved on. Isn’t there enough Kardashian news out there?

  31. Anon says:

    Like Brad and Angelina would tell anyone when they are getting married. What is their publicist’s name again?

    Invite Jennifer? Did Stephen Huvane, Jennifer’s PR Guru plant that?

  32. EG says:

    I still can’t get over how awful Aniston’s hair/face looked at the Oscars. I don’t think she’s bad looking, and I actually like her movies sometimes. But please woman for the love of god put your hair up!!!

  33. skuddles says:

    ‘There was talk of Aniston attending Brad’s wedding’… right. I have a very (very) hard time believing this is true.

    I want to see pics of their beautiful children all dolled up in their wedding finery!

  34. *unf* Joan Jett says:

    “I want to believe that Brad Pitt just returned to LA from France because he went in person to whatever French governmental office to procure a marriage license.

    I want to believe that…

    I want to believe …”

    Someone ate 90s cake :D

    On that semi-related note: Did Scully and Mulder actually ever got married? I don’t remember.

    He looks hilarious in that 3rd pic.. Like a little plastic doll…

    Both of their weddings are gonna be a huge thing!!!! Good for them they both found the loves of their lives and wanna marry them!

  37. Asdfg says:

    LOL, am I the only one who thinks the Brad Pitt and Angelina VS. Jennifer war is made up solely for their fans?

    It’s not that far out there if you think about it! Celeb’s spin stories like this all the time to keep their fans interested PLUS it keeps them in the news! In the news = money!

  38. mimi says:

    What’s the point of getting married at this point?

    Usually after a year or less (at their age) people marry as some sort of statement of love and commitment for the future, but they are together for years with kids, so what’s the point?

    • Asdfg says:

      Yeah, when they announced their engagement they stated that their kids wanted them to get married so they’re getting married for their kids pretty much! :)

      • lisa2 says:

        Yes they are getting married in part for their kinds.

        Brad also said that it was important to their children, but in getting engaged they didn’t realize how much it meant to them as well.

        I don’t know why it is so bad that these 2 people that have been together for so long and raising their family gets such hate and are accused of everything under the sun. There was talk of Brad and Angie marriage the day the world found out they were engaged. So it is hardly them stalking Aniston and her upcoming marriage.

        Brad said they would so it and that it would be small Family. The tabloids are the ones printing stories about elephants and ponies and big celebrity names. Which is as someone noted is not how the roll. We have never heard of them having some big splash. Never heard them inviting everyone to family occasion. It always seems that they celebrate in a very private way. Not cameras to document birthdays.

        so call them famewhores all you want, but they are not doing what most of them do. I’m sure they will marry at a time that is special for them. Just like having their children and everything else.

        I don’t see People magazine invited to cover it.

      The point = Cake.

    Erm… My friends got married in the beautuful garden of an old chateau in France, definitely not the town hall. I call bullsh*t.

  40. Aud says:

    This should be interesting. It will be a case of who upstages whom.

  41. floretta50 says:

    Poor Brad Pitt he has the ex-wife from hell, she is like a stinky buzzing fly that wouldn’t go away. This is her doing. Probbably paid Justin Theroux to marry her. As soon as Brad and Angie announced their engagement JA announces hers. I would not put it pass her to try and hag all or any of Brad and Angies friends as her guest to sabotage their wedding. Not with standing sending in her spies to get their exact wedding date. When is Jennifer Aniston going to grow up and get a life. After Brad and Angie gets hitched she is going to feel worst than ever, she will be married to a gold digger who could take her to the cleaners.

  42. Rupert Everett says:

    Oh yes, comparing Brad and Angelina to B-List Aniston and Theroux, great thing LoL No matter who will attempt to Anistons wedding, she is still a B-List Star who is more of a tabloid-celebrity then a real actres.

  43. Lisanne says:

    Making up a story is making up a story-you are being way too logical! The marriage license story, for example, is clearly made up, because there is no such thing as a marriage license in France. Not saying they won’t marry, but they don’t need a license and there is no 90-day deadline.

  44. Octo says:

    Am I the only one who notices how aged they all are? Angelina and Jen look botoxed and plastic, both with new noses and here we are talking about them like they are in their twenties. They are all heading toward their 50s and 40s. lol Cmon.
