Angelina Jolie shocks onlookers by buying eight-foot teddy bear from children on roadside

Share this:

Twins Allen and Brandon Alexander were getting a lesson in entrepreneurship from their father Tim. They had outgrown their giant teddy bear, named Big Bear, and were trying to sell it on the street corner outside their house for $50. After an hour, they had no takers.  But just then, a white Cadillac pulled up - and who should step out but Angelina Jolie and her daughter Shiloh!

Angelina Jolie and Shiloh made twins Allen and Brandon very happy over the weekend

Dad Tim was filming his eight-year-old sons jumping up and down and holding up a sign for the eight-foot bear in Toluca Lake, California, when the actress made her appearance. In the video, obtained by TMZ, the star can be seen helping the boys stuff the giant teddy in the boot of her car, much to the amazement of onlookers.

Angelina also doubled the twins' asking price, giving them $50 each as a reward for their efforts. "You are so good at doing your job," she can be heard telling the boys. "You are very good at doing your job, sweetie. You guys are so cool. It's so nice to meet you." With a big smile, she then shook hands with several of the parents, introducing herself simply as "Angie".

The boys' father later revealed that they had no idea who Angelina was during the encounter. But, after she drove away, he filled them in on who she was by referencing her animated movie, Kung Fu Panda.

The Hollywood actress surprised the whole family when she pulled over to buy the teddy bear

The giant teddy bear will no doubt prove a big hit in the Jolie-Pitt household. Angelina, 41, and husband Brad Pitt are parents to six children -  Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, who, like Allen and Brandon, are also eight.

Just recently, Brad and Angelina celebrated their two year wedding anniversary, and they did so in a low-key fashion, reportedly enjoying an intimate evening together at the Beverly Hills Hotel in LA. "It was just the two of them," an onlooker told Us Weekly. "They had dinner and spent the night, and that was it. They left the next day."
