What do you give a man who has everything?, as the India edition of ZeeNews.com asks so pertinently. It goes on to describe how Angelina Jolie solved this particular dilemma for her famously architecture-loving beloved, Brad Pitt. What could be more appropriate for a pre-birthday treat (he turns 43 on 18 December) than a private tour of Fallingwater? As Angelina apparently told the staff, ‘He’s hard to buy for’.
Pitt was said to have enjoyed his tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece and the tour leader found him ‘incredibly informed about architecture’. But lest anybody think that this was an entirely ascetic event, it included a private champagne and caviar reception in the living room. A little more glamorous than the catering usually available in the visitor centre.
