Pitt And Jolie Donate To Pearl Foundation
Hollywood couple BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE have donated $100,000 (GBP55,000) to the Daniel Pearl Foundation, in memory of the Wall Street Journal reporter who killed by Islamic extremists in 2002. Pitt is producing the big screen adaptation of Pearl's widow MARIANE's best-selling book A MIGHTY HEART, which stars Jolie as Mariane. The couple made the donation through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation earlier today (10OCT06), which would have been Pearl's 43rd birthday. The couple's representative TREVOR NEILSON tells America's People magazine, "On this day our thoughts go out to Danny's family. "The Daniel Pearl Foundation is celebrating this day, his birthday, with music festivals around the world. The festivals are a great reminder of not just Danny's work as a journalist but of his life and his love of music." The MR + MRS SMITH stars and their three children arrived in India last week (ends06OCT06) to film the movie, after security concerns prevented them from making it in Pakistan.
