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."

What should be a euphoric time for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has become anything but ... according to a couple of clearly desperate tabloids, anyway.

Behind their public smiles - and despite the glow of Angelina's dazzling $500,000 ring - trouble is brewing, say anonymous sources quoted by OK! Magazine.

It seems that ever since Brad and Angelina got engaged, their forthcoming marriage is causing all sorts of chaos, leaving the couple constantly at odds.

Heck, mere mortal weddings can bring strife and panic. But when you're the World's Most Glamorous Couple, with six kids and serious baggage, well ... it's crazy.

"You'd think them finally getting engaged would have them high on love, but since the proposal, the shine has worn off," a close friend allegedly claims.

"Of course it's mainly come down to them having to agree on the details of the wedding, including the prenup, and there are loads of things they do not agree on."

Meanwhile, Life & Style is running with Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux planning a summer wedding in Crete, which may actually be sort of accurate.

Still, Jen and Justin aren't even engaged, at least not that we know of, and the idea that they're trying to upstage Brangelina is patently ridiculous.

Aniston has been happy with her new man for some time, and does everything in her power to avoid stunts like that. Still, makes for great tabloid covers.

Nothing like calling a Jolie-Pitt family meeting for the announcement that the celebrity gossip world had longingly been waiting - and hoping - for.

On a recent spring day, Brad Pitt gathered Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 3, to present their mom with something.

That would be a tablet-shaped diamond engagement ring, estimated at 16 carats and worth $500,000, and which he helped design with jeweler Robert Procop.

"Angelina cried and smiled" at the proposal, a confidante says. Aww.

The children, who had been eager for their parents to wed after seven years together, were equally overjoyed to see Brad and Angelina engaged.

The source adds. "Everyone hugged once she put [the ring] on. She went around and showed it to each of the kids, one by one. It was magical."

As the world now knows, Jolie, 36, quietly debuted that long-awaited ring at an April 11 private viewing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Procop and then Pitt's manager confirmed the engagement days later. Now, "Angie considers herself bonded to Brad for life," adds the source.

Speaking of which ... do you think they'll last?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged, as you now know. For real.

OK! Magazine and its ilk are either overjoyed that they get to print accurate news for once in their lives this week, or devastated because now that Brangelina got engaged, and confirmed it, they've lost some great source material.

Either way, here's their very special commemorative cover:

Brangelina Engaged!

"Yes, it's confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are all very happy," Brad's manager Cynthia Pett-Dante confirmed to the AP last week.

"There's not date set at this time."

That's it. No more waiting for gay marriage to be legalized all over the world. No more coy interviews. No more ridiculous tabloid cover story lies.

Okay, those are clearly going to persist. But they'll have to branch out, because the secret wedding well has finally run dry. It was a good run, guys.

Despite any bitterness you'd think would linger, Jennifer Aniston swears she has nothing but warm wishes for the engaged Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

"Jen moved on a long time ago, and she is trying to just focus on her own happiness," a source says of the actress, 43, who divorced Brad in 2005.

"Jen is not a bitter person and she always wanted them to be happy."

Part of the reason for that is that Jen is happy and in love herself.

Aniston has reason to celebrate herself: Next month marks her 1-year anniversary with boyfriend Justin Theroux, who she met while filming Wanderlust.

"Jen spent many happy years with Brad and thinks their divorce was meant to be," adds the source, noting that the two recently moved in together.

"She is very happy with Justin – and that's what she is focusing on right now."

And everybody lived happily ever after apparently ... who'd have guessed! And what are Life & Style and In Touch going to devote covers to now?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie plan to tie the knot at last at their sprawling estate in France this summer, then move to England for at least two years, reports say.

While the newly-engaged couple says there is no date planned for their nuptials, the New York Post says they've spent the last six months planning them.

The plan, allegedly, is to hold a lavish wedding ceremony at their manse near the village of Correns, in the south of France, London’s Daily Star adds.

The engaged Brangelina will reportedly exchange vows in a pre-Roman chapel on the grounds before 200-300 guests, many of them Hollywood elites.

Pals George Clooney, Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Jacqueline Bisset and her once-estranged father Jon Voight are expected to be on hand.

“They have been quietly preparing for one of the most glamorous show-business weddings of all time for months,” a close friend of the couple said.

“I’ve seen their chateau; it is one of the most romantic settings imaginable.”

As soon as the Brad-Angelina engagement news spread, locals began buzzing about “Le Mariage de Monsieur et Madame Smith,” a takeoff on Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

With Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie engaged, most of the free world is sending its best wishes to the long-time couple. Including... Jennifer Aniston?!?

Yes, according to a Hollywood Life source, the former Mrs. Pitt is beyond content with boyfriend Justin Theroux and is simply "happy for Brad and Angelina" at this point.

"She is so in love with Justin, that she is really grateful how things turned out,” the Aniston insider says. “In a strange way if it weren’t for Angelina, Jennifer would not have connected with Justin in a romantic way. Jennifer is in a really wonderful place right now. I wouldn’t be surprised if she even went to their wedding.”

Plus, hey, Jen is clearly pregnant and the happiest she's ever been anyway, so why possess hard feelings.

But are you buying this? Do you think Jennifer Aniston is really happy for Brangelina?
