Venice welcomes Angelina Jolie
Even those who profess to have no interest in the actress would probably be struck dumb if they met her in the street. For those, however, who are die-hard Angelina fans, a stay in a Venice hostel at the moment could be a fun little weekend away, as the thespian is currently filming her new movie on location in the city.
According to Independent.ie, the Changeling celebrity is shooting The Tourist in Venice, which also co-stars Johnny Depp (yet another, perhaps even better, reason for heading to the area) and she welcomed her family to the set with open arms.
Brad and a couple of her ever-expanding brood, Shiloh and Maddox, came to see Angelina in action and, by all accounts, the group had a lovely Valentine's weekend checking out the city on the water.
Perhaps they headed to one of the bacari (small bars that attract locals), as recently lauded by restaurateur Russell Norman in the Daily Telegraph. He recommended the polpette that can be found in the Ca' d'Oro - Alla Vedova, as they are "delicious".
The Tourist itself also sounds quite an interesting flick, detailing the story of a luckless holidaymaker from the US who ends up being used by an Interpol official to capture a baddie whom she has been dating. Uh-oh!
