Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt enjoy 'mommy and daddy time' at Utah resort, report says
Angelina Jolie and partner Brad Pitt recently vacationed at a luxury desert resort in Utah without their six children, a report says.
"Brad said he was enjoying a little mommy and daddy time," Us Weekly quoted a source as saying. "They liked the downtime."
Jolie, 35, and Pitt, 47, have not commented on the report. The two enjoyed a late dinner on March 26 and flew their private plane over Lake Powell the next morning before checking out of the Amangiri resort, the magazine said.
Rooms and suites there range from $850 to $3,300, up until April 14, when the rates are set to go up ahead of the summer tourist season.
The resort includes a 25,000-square foot spa with a Floatation Pavilion that offers "color therapy-enhanced floatation treatments," private swimming pools in its suites, a fitness center, an art gallery and a library.
The company also operates resorts in countries such as France, India, Thailand and Cambodia, where the couple's 9-year-old son Maddox was born. The two are also parents toZahara, 6, Pax, 7, Shiloh, 4, and twins Vivienne and Knox, who are 2.
Jolie was recently honored with her own biography comic book called "Female Force: Angelina Jolie."
The 32-page publication was released on Wednesday, March 30 and retails for $3.99. It offers a "fresh look" at the "sometimes controversial career" and "unconventional life" of the actress, publisher Bluewater Productions said in a statement.
Jolie, who has six children with partner Brad Pitt, is known for playing sexy, leading female characters in movies such as "Salt," "Tomb Raider," "Gia" and most recently, "The Tourist" with Johnny Depp." She won an Oscar for her part as a sociopath in the movie "Girl, Interrupted."
Jolie has made headlines for beginning a relationship with Pitt while filming "Mr. And Mrs. Smith," which came out in 2005, when he and actress Jennifer Aniston divorced. Jolie also raised eyebrows when she talked about her past bisexuality in the press, kissed her brother on the lips at the Academy Awards and wore a small vial filled with Billy Bob Thornton's blood around her neck when she was married to him between 2000 and 2003.
Aside from acting, Jolie is also known for her charity work and is a UN Refugee Agency Goodwill Ambassador.
"I learned a great deal about her struggles and triumphs as an actress, mother and humanitarian," the book's writer, Brent Sprecher, said in a statement provided by Bluewater Productions. "Often painted as an edgy, slightly dangerous movie star, what is often not revealed about Ms. Jolie is her tireless commitment to charity work and her dedication to the plight of refugees around the world as a Goodwill Ambassador with the United Nations." Other female actresses who have appeared in "Female Force" comic books include First Lady Michelle Obama, right-wing political leader Sarah Palin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, talk show host Oprah Winfrey, former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher and "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling.
Jolie is currently working on her big-screen directorial debut - a movie she has written about a Serbian man and Bosnian woman who fall in love at the time of the Bosnian war in the 1990s. She is also attached to a "Cleopatra" movie reboot.
Elizabeth Taylor, who died at age 79 last week, famously played the role of the Egyptian queen in a 1963 film.
"I think if we can get the story right and do the real story," Jolie told MTV News in July 2010. "There's a lot about her that's not been covered yet. If we can do something original, we will."
