Brad Pitt assured fans Thursday that he is planning on marrying Angelina Jolie ... even while offering no details on when and where it will take place.

In London to promote his new film Killing Them Softly, the 48-year-old star gamely fielded questions about wedding plans with his gorgeous fiancee.

"No plans yet, other than we are going to do it," Pitt said, adding that despite his steadfast desire to marry her, "I plan very little as I get older."

Insiders say Pitt and Jolie's nuptials will be a "simple, joyous gathering" with a tiny guest list, and that means no celebrities overshadowing the affair.

While Pitt and Jolie, 37, live at France's Chateau Miraval, the wedding rumors followed them to England this summer as she shoots Maleficent.

"It's been a great summer here," Pitt said of life in the UK at Thursday's event. "It's just been a great spirited summer with all the sporting events."

"It's one of the most pleasurable times I've ever had here. We've been hanging out just having a normal life while Mama works," he added.

Now that Jennifer Aniston is engaged to Justin Theroux, the question is when they'll get married - and whether they'll beat Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie!

Not that it matters, of course - both Jen and Brad wish each other the best and don't play into the supposed rivalry celebrity gossip magazines love.

But it's fun to speculate, and it seems hard to believe that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux won't get hitched first, even if they've been engaged for 48 hours.

Brad and Jen got together in 1998, then married in 2000. In 2005, they announced their separation after 4 1/2 years of marriage - the first marriage for both.

Brad first met Angelina on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2003.

While the couple have six children - Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 3 - Brad only popped the question earlier this year.

Pitt claimed for years that he wouldn't get married again until gay marriage was legal everywhere, but then proposed in something of a surprise move.

There was talk that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would get hitched this past weekend, actually, though it turned out to be just that ... talk. Bogus talk.

Anyway, which couple do you think will wed first?

Preparations for a huge party at the home of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have sparked speculation that the couple will tie the knot THIS WEEKEND.

It's probably just that - speculation - but guests, including Brad's parents, have arrived in France ahead of the couple's bash at Chateau Miraval.

The jeweler Robert Procop, who crafted Angelina's $250,000 diamond and platinum engagement ring, is also believed to be in attendance. So ...

Guests are said to include Brad's A-list friend George Clooney, who is currently just a short flight away at his home on Lake Como, Italy.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's engagement in April, after seven years and six children, immediately gave way to the obligatory wedding rumors.

A source told The Sun (UK) newspaper:

"Brad flew in to oversee preparations but they’re all here now. They say the party is for [his parents] Bill and Jane Pitt, but some think this could be it."

"There’s a real buzz around the estate."

Whenever it occurs, it is believed that Brangelina will wed in a private chapel on the grounds of their home, a modest $50 million estate in the South of France.

After their engagement was announced it was revealed that a huge reception hall was under construction on the property - next to a quaint chapel.

Makes you wonder!

Brad Pitt's mother, Jane Pitt, has been targeted by critics and even with death threats after a letter she wrote last week to her local Missouri newspaper.

Jane Pitt's letter expressed support for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, citing his opposition to same-sex marriage and abortion as two reasons.

Given Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's staunch support of gay rights, the letter came as a surprise to many, and subjected Jane to a firestorm of criticism.

Brad Pitt's Mom

Brad's brother Doug Pitt defended their mom, if not her political views, while Jane said she would no longer be commenting to the media on the letter.

Others were not so diplomatic, to say the least.

Reaction was swift on Twitter, where one user, I Bleed Gaga wrote, "BRAD PITT'S MOM WROTE AN ANTI-GAY PRO-ROMNEY EDITORIAL. KILL THE B***H."

Another named Sandy Kownacka wrote, "Brad Pitt's mom, die."

Others stiil wrote: "F**k you, brad pitt's mom, the gay community made your kid a star, you whacko," and, "Brad Pitt's mom is a dumb c***."

Okay, people. Chill. As Doug said, it's alright to disagree, but can't we keep things civil? No need to threaten a senior citizen's life over this.

Meet Doug Pitt, the second most famous Pitt in his family.

Unlike his brother, Brad Pitt, Doug is not a superstar, has never made the front page of his local newspaper and certainly hasn't scored any endorsement deals.

Until now! Virgin Mobile Australia, in a funny new viral campaign, seeks to bring everyone a piece of the A-list lifestyle, even regular suburban dads like Doug.

A Missouri businessman, Doug Pitt appeared on Today to discuss his 15 minutes of viral fame, along with another family member of Brad's who's in the news.

Their mother, Jane Pitt, courted headlines last week after she penned an anti-gay letter to her local paper wrote urging Christians to vote for Mitt Romney.

"You know, I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any different?" he said in his mom's defense.

"There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you. The bad thing is when it turns to venom and negativity, and we don't have that in our family."

"We can learn from each other and, if anything, it solidifies your point. Or maybe you learn something. Either way it's an open and respectful discussion."

Now that's an attitude nearly all of us can learn from.

Brad Pitt has been a vocal advocate for gay rights, so it came as a bit of a surprise to learn that his mom write an editorial in her local Missouri newspaper that supports presidential candidate Mitt Romney's conservative views on homosexuality.

Springfield's News-Leader confirms that the author is Brad's mom.

Jane Pitt's letter was primarily penned to express support for Romney, in response to a previous News-Leader editorial urging readers to shun the Republican's bid to unseat President Barack Obama because of his Mormon beliefs.

In her response, which was published on Tuesday, she wrote:

"I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is Mormon."

"Anyone who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama - a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years and did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer."

Obama, she writes, is "a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage. I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility."

Brad Pitt is keeping himself busy - and embracing the English culture - while his better half Angelina Jolie is off filming Sleeping Beauty flick Maleficent.

If he’s not browsing in motorbike shops, the Hollywood star is visiting old pals in Birmingham and buying art from the UK's hippest graffiti artist Bambi.

After seeing examples of her work in Time, he snapped up canvases of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth II and Amy Winehouse.

Other celebrities, such as Adele, are said to own Bambi works as well. We always felt Kate Middleton pics were priceless. Apparently others agree!

A source told The Sun (UK) of Brad's pricey purchases:

“There is a lot of buzz about Bambi. As Brad’s here with the family for up to two years, it makes sense to fill the house with art by British artists."

“He already has a Banksy," whose work is similar to Bambi's, "which he bought for £1 million at a London auction, but had that shipped to LA.”

You know it is, right? Because sometimes you accumulate too much and have to divvy up art between all your homes. #richpeopleproblems

Brad Pitt famously proclaimed he wouldn't get married again until all couples have a legal right to do so, and despite his recent engagement to Angelina Jolie, it looks like that long-held position is still weighing on his consciousness.

He's certainly not in any hurry to get to the altar.

"We actually, really and truly, have no date," Pitt said at a press conference for Killing Them Softly during the Cannes Film Festival Tuesday.

"It's just something that makes sense to us, and date-wise, it's just a rumor. We're still hoping that we can figure out marriage equality before that date."

Which isn't to say Brad Pitt's proposal was any less magical.

"Angelina cried and smiled," a source said of the moment. "And everyone hugged once she put it on. She went around and showed it to each of the kids."

Though Pitt and his bride-to-be typically attend the Cannes Film Festival together, Jolie was noticeably M.I.A. at the famed gathering this year.

"She's actually not here right now. She's prepping for a movie she starts very soon," Pitt explained of Angie's latest project, Maleficent.

None other than Hollywood leading man, fiance of Angelina Jolie and father of six Brad Pitt was just announced as the new face of Chanel No. 5.

He does have a pretty nice face, as guys go.

Brad, who has to be thrilled about President Obama's support for gay marriage, was confirmed by the French fashion house earlier this morning.

The Academy Award-nominated star is reportedly shooting his first ad sometime this week in London, where the couple is considering moving.

Pitt joins the likes of Nicole Kidman, Vanessa Paradis, Audrey Tautou, Ali MacGraw and Lauren Hutton as the face of the globally famous brand.

It’s the first time in history that a man will represent the fragrance.

According to reports, Pitt will be paid seven figures for his work ... not a bad fee to stand there and look good. His ad will be released later this year.

Jennifer Aniston has been having a low-key several months ... at least until every news outlet, celeb gossip blog and tabloid publication started speculating nonstop on her response to Brad Pitt's engagement to Angelina Jolie.

The whole world seems to be obsessed with how she took this one piece of news. The short answer? She's happy for Brangelina, but at the same time, "She hates it being brought up because she doesn't really care," says a pal.

Jennifer Aniston was married to Brad Pitt from 2000-2005 before he infamously fell in love with Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar Jolie while he was still married.

After seven years together, Brad finally proposed to Angelina earlier this month, with all six kids present, buying her $500,000 diamond engagement ring.

"She feels Angelina can have him," the Jen source adds, noting that she's been quite happy in her own life for some time. "She just wants to move on."

Indeed, since falling for Wanderlust costar Justin Theroux, that's pretty much what Aniston's done. There's even talk of them planning their own wedding.

"Jen's totally happy with Justin," says the pal. "That's all in the past."
