Let’s face it: for most of us, getting a discarded Q-Tip from Angelina Jolie would be a dream come true. But receiving an article of clothing the humanitarian/sultry star/all-around impressive lady wore at her curvy, mother-to-be best? Yes, please!
If you want to know what it’s like to receive a maternity hand-me-down from the woman who kisses Brad Pitt before drifting off to sleep every night, just ask Jack Black’s lucky wife, Tanya Haden. And Haden didn’t receive just any old cast-off, she got the green Max Azria Empire-waist dress Jolie wore to the premiere of the first Kung Fu Panda at the Cannes Film Festival while pregnant with twins Vivienne and Knox.
Black gratefully summed up the good deed while addressing Jolie in front of reporters in LA recently while promoting Kung Fu Panda 2. “My wife, Tanya, was like, 'That is the most amazing maternity dress I've ever seen.’ ... And you're like, 'Oh, thanks.' And then, what do we get in the mail like the next week? That gown. You sent it over. It was one of the sweetest gifts of all time."
Sure, the now mother-of-six could have sold the dress for a gazillion bucks, or given it away on Oprah to massive fanfare, but the erstwhile Lara Croft decided to do what so many moms and moms-to-be have done for a fellow pregnant pal: she quietly shipped it over to Haden, preggo to preggo. Bravo!
