WIERD: Angelina jolie's twins, you can't believe how much was paid for their photographs

Angelina jolie and Brad Pitt are celebreties of the highest order. In 2008 they sold the right to take the photographs of their newly born twins Vivenne and Knox for the reported fee of $14 million, to US based "people magazine" and UK's "hello! Magazine." And both magazines splited the bill. Even before the babies were born on 12 July in nice, France, speculation began over which celebrety magazine would come out on top of an inevitable bidding war. They ultimately sold the US right to people and sold the international right to UK's hello. The money went straight into the foundation created by Angelina and Pitt, their foundation is largely focused on helping children around the world.

Brad Pitt, reacting said: it's very strange thing to be selling photos of something very intimate and personal, and those of which you want to protect, but we knew there was a bounty on our head, and we know the length the paparazzi go to, to get that shot. So we figured out, let's cut it off in the beginning, and instead of the money going to people I do not respect, we would make some good out of it."can you imagine that? This though is not the first time something like this has happened. Jennifer Lopez was paid $6 million for she and her new born twins to future in March cover of people magazine, according to Forbes.Interesting! Beautiful twins, just to take their photographs. I had to look at their faces properly to be sure they are humans.
