The whole of Australia is a flutter with Brad Pitt touching down this week to promote his new movie, World War Z. Though this is Brad's first visit down under, he opted to leave Angie at home and take little Pax, possibly to pat some koalas or feed some kangaroos.
While in Sydney, father and son are staying in the lap of luxury at the centrally located, Intercontinental. The hotel is located smack dab in the middle of the city's most popular area, Circular Quay, and no doubt while Dad was busy doing his interviews, Pax and his carer hopped on a ferry to the Taronga Zoo for a quick Aussie animal fix.
Yet as busy as Brad can be on his inaugural visit, he did seem to attract some attention with the fans, and we're not talking about the good kind. One fan was hanging out in the basement parking garage waiting to catch a glimpse of Brad and, maybe get an autograph. After the fan approached Brad and Pax, the star's bodyguards quickly stepped in and tackled the man. Eventually, the police came to issue a 'move-on order' (the Aussie equivalent to a slap on the wrist) to the fan and the boys were off to their yacht cruise around the iconic harbor.

We're not haters or anything, but we've had to endure reruns and all types of holiday delays. And then we had to get back to work on the 2nd. Hell, some of us working stiffs didn't get much vaca at all. So, we're just wondering why these celebs still seem to be taking a break. Do they not have movies to shoot? Tracks to record?
OK!We admit it--from the pics we're seeing we're just jelly we're not in their spots. So we'll once again just live through them. And seethe from afar.
Madonna and her brood (including her 25-year-old boyfriend Brahim Zaibat) headed to the resort town of Gstaad, Switzerland, for New Year’s. It seems Anne Hathaway and new hubby Adam Shulman were around for the holidays, too. While the Material Mama spent time attempting to ski and bit the dust a few times, it seems 16-year Lourdes was smoother on the snowboard.
There might be little argument that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie make for the most interesting celebrity couple on this planet. After announcing their pending nuptials, the hearts of world-wide paparazzo may have skipped a beat, but the couple may have scored a point against the camera lens after organizing a private dinner at one of the restaurants in the Montage Beverly Hills.
Perhaps they were picking the flowers or even color schemes for their big day, either way Brangelina wanted a little privacy while dining in the hotel's £10 restaurant. Allegedly, after a little coaxing, they shut their doors to the public and other hotel guests, and no doubt waited on the power couple hand and foot. No word on what they dined on (does Angie eat?), but with a menu like aged bison tartare and mini lobster rolls, no doubt the bill was more than £10 ($16).
Ahh, to have the hotel habits of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. One minute they're stopping into a popular Hollywood haunt, the next they are off to the Galapagos Islands with their six kids (and presumably a few nannies and bodyguards) in tow.
People Mag reports the newly engaged couple and their kids have set up shop at the Royal Palm Hotel on the island of Santa Cruz. The hotel, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, is the only luxury hotel that's actually located inside the Galapagos National Park. Reportedly, Brangelina and co. are staying in one of the hotel's 10 villas which are equipped with living rooms, dining areas with fireplaces, jacuzzis and covered outdoor decks off the bedrooms and living spaces.
When Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt need a romantic getaway, they head to Utah. Yes, Utah. Hey, sometimes you have to go to someplace remote for peace and quiet when you live with six kids. The couple cleared their schedules and left the kids with a sitter for some nookie at the Amangiri resort.
There, the two embarked on a 27-hour romantic rendezvous in the desert. After checking into the hotel, the lovebirds had a late dinner and jetted off on their private plane over Lake Powell the next morning. Maybe Angelina has found her latest kinky sex hotel?
Okay, Brad Pitt. At first, when we read the item in Us Weekly that accuses you of ordering up three Nintendo Wii's to your room at the Hard Rock Las Vegas this weekend (where you were staying with your two boys), we were kinda like, "well, whatever. Lots of hotels offer Nintendo Wii's as amenities upon request but apparently the Pitt boys needed one Wii for each individual. Whatever. Next!"
But then we realized that the Hard Rock Las Vegas doesn't offer Nintendo Wii's to its guests. Oh, no no. In fact, when we called the hotel, they told us they offered "nothing like that." But the concierge would be happy to rent or buy one for us if we wanted one during our stay.
Well, perhaps we'd want one. We don't need more than one. Who needs more than one Wii? And don't your kids have Wii's at home? Couldn't the nanny throw one in the suitcase before the trip? We're not hating, we're just saying.
Sigh. Celebs. They are not at all just like us.

There's tons of hotel news flying around this week and we don't have time to give each and every story the love and attention it may deserve, so you will have to settle for some news briefs.
· Greenwich Hotel Hosts Marc Jacobs After-Party: Fashion Week is still chugging along here in NYC and Robert DeNiro's place hosted Marc Jacobs and all his hott mess friends.
· Downtown LA to Get Boutique Hotel: Wow, this actually makes us excited about downtown LA. The Clark Hotel will open in eight months. [LA Curbed]
Earlier today, VacantReady's Chris tipped us off to a breaking news story that does not appear to be a joke: Brad Pitt is going to be designing a hotel.
The actor announced today that he is set to work with Zabeel properties to help design an America-themed (seriously) hotel and resort in Dubai.
The project, which aims to be an "environmentally sustainable" 800-room luxury property, will include Pitt as a designer working with GRAFT, the LA-based architecture firm behind Hotel Q and Lohan hotspot Marquee.
The Super World Travelers aka the Pitt-Jolie Gang are in our nation's capital today (at least Mom and her sons are) and if they aren't shacking up with some government official or embassy contact, then they gotta be staying at a hotel. Here are some suggestions:
· Donovan House: We think Maddox and Pax would dig the CIA-theme stuff.
· The Four Seasons: 'Cuz it's the Four Seasons.
· The Mayflower: Before she shacked up with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie always loved a good kinky hotel.
· The St. Regis: It's swank and luxe and recently got a top-to-bottom, inside-out renovation.
· The Park Hyatt: Serves delicious apple pie, perfect for pregnancy cravings.

However, we are guessing this duo is booked up in the fancier Waldorf Towers where regular rooms start at $700 a night and are a gazillion times fancier than the rest of the place.
All guest accommodations at The Waldorf Towers are individually decorated with exquisite antiques and period reproductions, with themes ranging from French Provincial to Old English. Many suites feature pieces transported from the original Waldorf=Astoria, which was razed in 1929 to make way for the Empire State building.
But if Brangelina don't have anywhere to be around 4:20 today, then they should hit up the 16th floor of the main building.

Brad Pitt is practically BFF with Frank Gehry so it's no surprise to us that Pitt and his lady, Angelina Jolie shacked up at the Gehry-designed Marques de Riscal while visiting Spain. We even bet that Brangelina got comped for their stay. And some good news for the hotel babysitters---Brad and Angie left the kids behind in Prague.
