Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: Are they really planning a wedding?

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: Can’t you tell they are mentally planning a wedding in this picture? (ASSOCIATED PRESS)

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are supposedly planning a secret wedding that will take place in the very near future.

Us Weekly has reported this news, which naturally is shared in much more detail in print since it’s the magazine’s cover story this week. The report says that three sources — none of them named, of course — have confirmed that the couple plans to marry either later this summer or in September, and may do so at their chateau in France. Reps for Pitt and Jolie have not commented on all this; I reached out to one myself and have not received a response yet.

Wedding plans would seem like the natural follow-up to statements Pitt made this summer while doing interviews to promote his film “Tree of Life.” Back then, he told USA Today that marriage is something he and Jolie have “got to look at” because their six kids frequently ask about it.

But it’s worth remembering that the celeb gossip world has been dead wrong about Pitt and Jolie many times before.

Remember when Pitt and Jolie were supposedly planning a Hindu wedding to take place this year in India? Never happened.

Or that time they secretly got married in the Seychelle Islands? Also a fabrication.

Or that other time when they allegedly got married in New Orleans but then everyone realized that was false?

We’ve all walked down this Brangelina-wedding aisle before. So let’s just say I’ll believe the news when I see legitimate wedding photos, a ring on both fingers and actually hear both of them say they are married. And even then, I still might remain skeptical.
