Nothing says I Love You and I forgive you for those naked pictures quite like a new set of wheels and according to the Hollywood tabloids Brad Pitt surprised his megastar actress life partner, Angelina Jolie with a new motorcycle on her 35th birthday.
We don't know any details about the bike, and even Angelina says she doesn't know much about her present. "I'm not sure what cc (size) it is. But I can tell you it's a proper bike and it's powerful. Brad's a really good teacher - he's really patient. I'm very impatient so I can wreck a bike if I'm not careful."
For fans who need reminding, Jolie's motorcycle experience has been mostly onscreen in Tomb Raider and in her newest movie Salt.
Obviously Brad isn't letting the recently surfaced nude photos of Angelina throw him off his romance game. The tabloids are saying that the photos were taken in 1999 by a friend and show her with S&M props, black tape over her nipples and a dog collar around her neck. Others show her during a 14-hour heroin-smoking bender. Additional photos are contained in an unauthorized biography by Andrew Morton that is due for release in August 2010.
So that makes Brad's birthday gift of a motorcycle all the more impressive. It says "darling, screw the tabloid paparazzi, let's ride!"
