Now that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have temporarily become suburban, what do their neighbours have to say about them? “The reaction across the board seems to be, ‘Wow, they’re very nice people.’ It seems that people like them and like having them here.”
“When you talk to someone who has met them they’re kind of glowing,” Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto says. “People love saying they saw them. They feel something very special happened to them.”
Many people have stories to share about their brush with the famous couple. Katherine Pastore, a manager at the local Stop & Shop, spotted the celeb pair in the store on April 18 with daughters Zahara, 4 and Shiloh, 2 ½. “They looked out of place because they were so beautiful,” says Pastore. “They looked like they were airbrushed when they were walking. I went up to Brad and asked if he needed help and he said, ‘No thanks.’ I was looking at him but I don’t really remember it – it was like a dream.”
“They were very attentive with their kids. Brad was rubbing Zahara’s back and Angelina was comforting Shiloh when she got a little upset. It was sweet,” adds Pastore.
“I saw a bunch of teenage girls running to get in here. All the other customers were just like, ‘Oh, they were here!’ It’s the big buzz of the town. We have had celebrities in before and it’s exciting, but these are the most famous people in the world!”
