Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have listed their prime French Quarter mansion for $6.5 million, but a rep tells US Weekly the couple remain committed to New Orleans and will look for "something off the beaten path down the road."

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Are Selling Their New Orleans Mansion


Pitt and Jolie became involved in philanthropic efforts in the city after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and bought the renovated 1830s home in late 2006 for Pitt's filming of "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." In 2007, Pitt cofounded Make It Right, a non-profit organization based in New Orleans that builds environmentally friendly homes and other buildings for people in need.

The home the Jolie-Pitts put on the market has five bedrooms, five baths and all the grandness you'd expect from a Big Easy mansion: Venetian plastered walls, marble mantles and fireplaces, crown moldings, a grand spiral staircase and -- bringing it into the modern era -- an elevator. There's also a two-story guesthouse.

The couple let actor Jonah Hill crash at the home when he was filming "21 Jump Street."
Hill, a months-long guest, called Pitt "the nicest guy" for letting him stay there but said it came with some fan baggage.

"I would go home every day from work, and there'd be a tour outside and they'd be freaking out," he told Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show." "I'd get out of the car, and you could hear a collective audible sigh of annoyance when it wasn't Brad Pitt."

The listing photos, alas, include only exterior shots.
