Ange’s romantic gift for Brad

Angelina Jolie had no problem finding a birthday present for the man who has everything. The `Tomb Raider’ star surprised her beau Brad Pitt before his 42nd birthday on December 18 with a personal guided tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece Fallingwater, followed by champagne and caviar. The famous home was built in the 1930s and stands on a waterfall in Pennsylvania, USA. “Brad said he had wanted to experience Fallingwater ever since he took an architectural history course in college,” reveals Cara Armstrong, the building’s curator of education, who led the couple on their tour. She adds, “He and I talked about design and art. He was incredibly well informed about architecture. They were very gracious and very engaged in the house. Brad said he had a visual sense of Fallingwater but experiencing it in person, hearing the sound of the waterfall cascading under the house and smelling the wood from the fireplace was better than anything he could have imagined.” [13 December 2006]
