Brangelina Twins -- 14 Million Dollar Babies

8/1/2008 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Knox and Viv Jolie-Pitt have already raised more money in their lifetimes than you -- or at least most of you -- ever will.

The first pics of the Brangie twins have been bestowed upon People magazine -- and Hello! mag for the foreign rights -- for a total $14 mil, says the AP. The issue will hit stands in three days. By comparison, People paid a reported $6 mil for the J. Lo-Skeletor twins.

What we can believe is that there will be people who won't buy the magazine but will definitely want to look at them for free, on the internet. Right, Lumbee? THAT is a joke... and sad, because if you buy the magazine you're giving to charity. I will buy two copies of "Hello."

Cynic    

Wow, #30, your ignorance, lack of education, and mindless ranting are simply astounding! The very fact that you're shouting when you write is enough to discredit any of your comments. Go away, get a life, and find something worthwhile to bitch about!

17. These two have become pretty repulsive. They have plenty of money to give to charity without having to use their babies as fundraising tools. I think it's disgusting.

I think what Jolie and Pitt are doing is VERY smart! If they don't do this, the papz will chase them till they get pictures of the twins and sell it to the tabloids and they pocket the money. This way the money will go to charity instead of to the papz.

I hope they stay in France. They don't care to "donate" to the US. Screw em and no way that money is going to charity.

Disgusting    

PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS ISSUE OF PEOPLE MAGAZINE.

These people are repulsively self-important.
People Magazine is moronic.
Who cares about these people, honestly?
They are just actors and not very good ones.
They carefully craft their PR image and people are buying into it.

Donating the money to charity is just more PR image. They couldn't keep it because that would look really bad. They already have disgusting amounts of money for doing nothing, while people are struggling to eat. So, they donate to charity and it pumps up their image and they end up benefiting by getting paid with increased salaries on their films, etc etc.

Jolie's people are cynically clever. You can't attack someone who's donating to charity, but it's all b.s. Meanwhile, there've been reports that they've reneged on past charitable pledges.

And what do they actually do that's humanitarian?? Jolie seems to go on an occasional stopover to a 3rd world nation to get her picture taken and then split. Neither of them seem to do significant work, or make sacrifice.

Princess Di got in there and got dirty and helped. Audrey Hepburn, too. Jolie seems like a phony and PR creation.

I feel sorry for the children of any hollywood celebrity...I really do!
If these two are shacking up, and aren't committed to each other enough to get married, how long till each go on to greener pastures and the kids get raised by who knows who?

I just don't understand the hype around these two. It's not as if they are incredibly talented actors. It's not as if they are the most beautiful people in the world. I can't get past how Angie behaved with Billy Bob Thorton. And the tattoos seal her trashiness. Brad seems to just go along for the ride and has some fantasy to be Steve McQueen the way he dresses.

I too hope this "special" edition of this magazine tanks. It's just a vulgar amount of money whether it's going to charity or not. What is their charity? They preach to everybody how we have to conserve and save the planet yet theye travel all around the globe burning jet fuel and they liive in some pretty nice engery sucking homes. Hypocrites!

These two are not worth the hype.

wasted days and wasted nights    

Be nice to get some levity from Brad and Angie over this. They should step up to the mike and chuckle, "Yeah, Angie and I act all tense during the negotiations, reminding the magazines how SPECIAL our kids are and how much EVERYONE wants to see their pictures. But that is just an act. We know it is stupid to be paid so much for these. But stupid money is money and sometimes, you just gotta laugh all the way to the bank."

Why do people get so crazy about the cost. YOU DIDN'T PAY THE MONEY. I want to see the babies. Everyone loves looking at babies. Those of you who hate the couple and call then attention seeker get over. They don't have to seek the attention. IT comes to them. Look at the number of comments. They are only going go higher. People can't stay away. Any celeb I don't like, I don't make comments about them good or bad. I don't care. Those of you who are printing negative comments care so much that you can
