Angelina Jolie Reportedly Buys $20 Million Private Island For Brad Pitt's 50th Birthday

Angelina Jolie has reportedly bought Brad Pitt a private island off the coast of New York, and not only is it shaped like a heart, but there is an original Frank Lloyd Wright home on site! She really takes the cake for picking out the best birthday presents...

According to The Mirror, "As soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed. The house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat. It’s very private. And Angelina knows the fact the island is in the shape of a heart will mean so much to him."

The island of Petra sits on 11 acres of land on Lake Mahopac, and according to the site, Jolie paid 12.2 million pounds for the estate, which is nearly $20 million. The original 1,200-square-foot home was built in 1950, while the larger 5,000-square-foot property was built in 2008 from some of Wright's blueprints.

It's located just 50 miles north of New York City, which is 15 minutes by helicopter (and yes, there's a helipad on the grounds). From the picture windows to skylights and vast expanses of stone, cement and mahogany in the home, "the main residence is truly a triumph of modern architecture," according to listing info.

Um, Jolie doesn't make money for her U.N. gig. And, last time I checked, she's got the Right to spend her own money anyway she likes. Jolie's more of a Humanitarian than most of us.
