The Hollywood premiere of Quentin Tarantino's new movie, "Inglorious Basterds," attracted a lot of stars, but none were bigger than the worldwide phenomenon known as Brangelina.
When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie arrived at the red carpet affair, they immediately headed across the street to greet the hundreds of screaming fans who had been waiting for hours behind steel barricades in the hopes of meeting them. Many stars do that at these events, but this couple strayed from the usual protocol en route to greet said fans. You see, not everyone who got an up-close-and-personal visit from the famous duo had to wait long hours in the summer sun for the rare opportunity: one lucky tour van loaded with camera-wielding tourists simply was stopped at the right red light at the right time.
That's right: as Brangelina stopped traffic on Hollywood Blvd., they took time to greet the dozen or so passengers on a Hollywood tour. A quick Google search of tour companies in Hollywood reveals that tickets for these types of tours cost $25-$40. You can be sure the folks on this van got their money's worth!
