Brangelina at home in flood zone

Los Angeles, Jan. 17 (Reuters): Globetrotting Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have moved to New Orleans and plan to send their three children to school there, Us Weekly magazine reported on Monday.

“We love it there,” Jolie was quoted as saying in confirming the move at the Golden Globe awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Monday night. “The kids are going to go to school there. We’re really looking forward to it.”

Representatives for Pitt, 43, and Jolie, 31, could not immediately be reached for comment. But the story posted on the magazine’s website (www. said the couple’s relocation to the flood-ravaged Louisiana city is at least partly in keeping with their off-screen devotion to various humanitarian causes around the world.

They spent Christmas Day handing out presents to Colombian war refugees in Costa Rica. The movie star pair moved to the Big Easy on January 11 and have purchased a $3.5 million, six-bed mansion in the city’s French Quarter, Us Weekly said.

A diner at a Decatur Street restaurant said he saw Jolie quietly mixing with the locals the day after she and Pitt moved to town. The magazine said Jolie plans to keep a low profile in her newly adopted home town, where Pitt is currently shooting his latest film, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

“She’s interested in befriending normal moms so she can do things with the kids,” a source said, adding that the couple also hopes to raise awareness for the hurricane-devastated Gulf Coast region.

“They think it is important to be there right now” and are already looking to get more involved in local charity work, the source said. According to Us Weekly, construction is set to start this month on 20 environment-friendly homes Pitt has jointly commissioned with the group Global Green USA.
