Angelina Jolie brings back Brad Pitt’s favourite curry
The actress – who was overseas last week as part of the G8 summit, assuming her role as United Nations special envoy for refugee issues – arranged for her fiancé’s much-loved meal to be flown back home to the US with her after Brad was unable to join her on the trip.
Angelina – who has children Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six, and four-year old twins Knox and Vivienne with Brad – is said to have ordered a lamb bhuna, chicken korma and chicken tikka from the heartthrob actor’s favourite curry house in Surrey, south east England, where they visited during their stay in Richmond.
A source told The Sun newspaper, “Brad is back in America and has been longing for a decent curry.
“He really misses their Indian takeaway nights from when they lived in Surrey last year. Angelina arranged as a surprise for a load of it to be cooked and flash-freeze packed for her to fly home.
“So while she was at the G8, she sent her bodyguard Ray and eldest son Maddox to collect it and to stock up with more treats.
“They even got a load of Kingfisher and Cobra beer for Brad to wash it all down with.”
A similar ritual is carried out by soccer star David Beckham, who is known to ensure his home comfort meal of pie and mash from a shop in Waltham Abbey, Essex, is flown out to France while he trains for team Paris Saint-Germain.
Shop owner Tony Lane explained, “We’ve already been told to send our pies over to France – and it’s not unusual. We did the same when he was at Madrid and even deliver them when he stays at the Savoy [hotel] in London.
“And if he wants me to come and cook for him there, my door is open.”
