Brangelina hire Jamie Oliver for Christmas

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their extensive brood will enjoy a traditional British Christmas dinner this festive season. To ensure its authenticity they have hired a British chef to help with the preparations. He’s called Jamie Oliver.

Oliver has been a friend of Pitt’s from back in the pre-Angelina days. "Jamie has been pals with Brad since he was married to Jennifer Aniston and Ange likes him too," a friend told The Sun. "Jamie will be heading to their Surrey mansion to help prepare Christmas dinner."

Pitt and Jolie have been enjoying an extended stay in England while working on a film. They have been popping in to their local pub, The Black Swan in Ockham, and tucking into the Sunday roasts most weekends, so obviously enjoy British cuisine. "They love traditional British dinners and have been regulars at the restaurant over the past few months," a staff member said.

Oliver shares Pitt’s enthusiasm for cooking lavish meals for family occasions, but might have a little more skill in the kitchen than the Hollywood star. "Brad asked him to do it after he begged Jamie for cookery lessons last year," the friend explained. "Jamie tried to teach him but he’s useless in the kitchen."

The Pitt-Jolies also have a new performer in the family. Daughter Vivienne has a role in a new Disney film called Maleficent. The four year old plays a princess in the film. So Oliver might like to conjure something suitably regal for that Christmas dinner menu.
