Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have taken a step closer to moving to Europe permanently by buying an apartment in Berlin, Germany. The couple have been regular visitors to the German capital, and have now taken ownership of a luxury 600 square metre (6,500 square foot) attic flat in what used to be East Berlin, according to the German edition of Vanity Fair. The GIRL, INTERRUPTED star - who already has homes in the US and an apartment in Paris, France, with Pitt - wants her adopted children MADDOX and ZAHARA and her biological daughter SHILOH to grow up outside the Hollywood bubble. Pitt is good friends with German architects Lars Krueckeberg, Wolfram Putz and Thomas Willemeit, who designed his house in Los Angeles.
