The entrainment industry is one tight family. Nowhere is this more evident than the rumor that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have asked singer Bono to be godfather to their new twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline. It’s truly a different world when you can sit around a table and seriously consider someone like Bono to watch over your kids.
Anyways, Pitt and Jolie recently joined Bono and his wife Ali Hewson at their home in the South of France — and popped the question to him — we imagine over fine organic cheeses and wine. Apparently, he accepted on the spot (who wouldn’t?) and “is thrilled”.
“Brad and Angie think the world of Bono,” a source revealed to the UK Mirror. “They have been friends for years. Brad is a massive U2 fan and told Bono how much he admired him when they were introduced at a party a few years back. Since then, they’ve become very close, which Brad is thrilled about. Angelina is inspired by Bono’s humanitarian work and gets on with his wife Ali Hewson.”
Ms. Hewson also gave some organic clothing from her ethical clothing range, Edun, as a present for the kids.
No word yet on who might be chosen as a godmother, but the Mirror seems to point to Jolie’s ex-lesbian lover Jenny Shimzu as a candidate. Together with Bono, this could turn out to be one of the more interesting godparent pairings in history. Who would you choose?
