pitt.jpgWhile spending Christmas with impoverished war refugees in Costa Rica, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made sure their retreat had the complete opposite conditions of the people they were helping. To the tune of $100,000, the couple and their son stayed at the luxurious Peninsula Papagayo Resort, employed an armed security detail, private pool, spa, and ‘delicious food’. From the article,

“They were laughing and joking together and seemed to be having a great time,” the Mirror quoted the guest, as saying. UN goodwill ambassador Jolie, who along with Pitt handed gifts to refugees on Christmas Day, said that spending Christmas with the Costa Rican people and Colombian refugees had been a “wonderful” experience. “We had a wonderful Christmas both with the Costa Rican people and the Colombian refugee families we met,” Jolie said at the time.”

Personally, I don’t know of any other celebrity couple that dared leave the United States to give some cheer to those in need. Therefore, I really do not take issue with the cost of their accommodation. To be sure, $100,000 is damn expensive and I’m sure most of us could have a phenomenal ‘I’ll always remember’ vacation for 1/10 of that. In the end, the positives of such compassionate efforts most definitely outweigh the negatives of the expenses. Hope the food was good.
