They’ve only lived in the UK for two months, but Angelina Jolie seems to have sussed out the best spots in London.
The high profile moviestar, 40, made it a girls’ day out for daughters Vivienne, seven, and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, nine, on Tuesday, treating them to the British capital’s finest toy store, Hamley’s, and lunch at suitably swanky establishment, The Delaunay.
In the absence of their siblings, Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, and seven-year-old Knox, the children were in a playful mood and entertained their mother’s attention while playing in the sudden, light snowfall.
The youngsters proved to have a strong sisterly bond, since Shiloh was seen pulling her younger sister in affectionately for a cuddle with a hand rested on top of her head.
Shiloh wore a hood up against the cold, demonstrating her signature tomboy flair in UGG boots, a dark stripey jumper and combat trousers that left her calves bare, despite the chill.
She was elegant in heeled ankle boots, with a long, dark coat covering up her super-slim figure, and she covered her face with a large pair of sunglasses before hopping into a car with a Hamley’s shopping bag in hand.
No doubt Angelina had children’s entertainment on the mind after reportedly signing on to star as her villainous Sleeping Beauty character one more time, in the sequel of Maleficent.
The moviestar, who executive produced and starred in the 2014 Disney film, will reprise her role in 2017, once again working alongside screenwriter Linda Woolverton, Disney reports.
The news comes as somewhat of a surprise as Angelina previously insisted that there was no need for a second Maleficent movie because the first was so ‘thorough’.
Currently, Angelina is spending time with the children after she and Brad moved their six-piece brood over to London for work at the end of February, and the family have since been spotted on Notting Hill’s Portobello Road, visiting popular attraction, The Electric Cinema.
They are said to have moved to a ‘commuter’s paradise’ in Surrey; explaining their various trips into the city for entertainment – and no doubt business meetings.
They reportedly chose an eight-bedroom, $21,000-a-month (or £14,700-per-month) rental in Surrey, which will house them for six months as Brad films the sequel to zombie blockbuster World War Z.
New reports suggest that the eight-piece have become so at home in their UK residence that they’re hoping to make a permanent move to England, though Angelina’s international commitments to humanitarian work and filmmaking could hold back the move.
A source told Us Weekly: ‘The house is big, kid-friendly and has all the modern conveniences. They like that there are toy shops in town and that it’s not far from central London.
‘It’s got that peaceful, leafy suburb vibe as well. They love being in London. Angie would pick it as their permanent home if she could.’
