Will Brad and Angie's wedding photo money go to charity?

Did Brad & Angelina Sell Their Wedding Photos for Charity?

Magazine cover for charity, round three? It was revealed Monday night that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have given photos of their wedding to People and Hello! magazines.

People snagged the front of Jolie's dress and a pic with the kids, while Hello! has a shot showing off the children's artwork sewn into that dress, and a snapshot of the power couple powerfully kissing.‚Äč

The most famous couple in movies managed to pull off a completely secret, surprise wedding on August 23rd. So, seems odd they'd then share the pics, right?

We never saw photos, for example, of Jay Z and Beyonce's 2008 wedding, though they did reveal a snippet of video during a concert this year. Vids have since been removed from YouTube.

But the choices of People and Hello! are familiar.

The first pics of the pair's first biological child, Shiloh, went to those mags in 2006.

According to Forbes, People paid $4.1 million for them, Hello! $3.5, and all the proceeds went to charities for African children.

In 2008, twins Knox and Vivienne arrived, marking the most money ever spent on celebrity photos.

Again, the pics were sold to People and Hello!, reportedly for about $15 million total.

In 2011 Pitt touched on the subject with NPR, calling certain photogs 'stalkerazzi': "We figured ... instead of that money going to people I do not respect, we would make some good out of it."

Still, while paparazzi certainly could get the first photos of a baby out in the world, the wedding seems to have been a pretty closed-doored affair. So, were these photos sold for charity? No word from Pitt or Jolie. Or...is Jolie now Pitt?

Right. When you really want to do something good, it should be between you and wherever it is going. We don't need to know every thing these two do. It's all for publicity. Who cares?

Maybe if you see them giving, Shelia, it will inspire you to do the same.

They gave all the money to charity every other time; there's no reason to think they won't do the same thing this time. FTR: They don't OWE anything to anybody, so if they decided to do like every other celebrity couple and keep the money, they would have every right to. However, they won't. Good for them.

She spoke to the un about Syrian refugees, and has already donated money to them. They will, and it will go to refugees. They set the example for the rest of Hollywood. Their wedding was all class. Private and small and not one ounce of publicity.

Who really gives a flying flip about these two? Same with the Trader George Clooney who is in love with Obama.

YEP!!..I don't think that white gown...virgin thing means anything any more. The girls all want to wear a white gown, and that is what all wedding gowns are usually...white!

Who cares! They should have been married ages ago; they have a billion kids together. And why is that skeleton (Angelina) wearing a WHITE dress?! Whatever!
