Before their long-lasting fairytale romance came to an end in 2016, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were one of the most adored couples in Hollywood. Individually, they are two of the most well-known actors in the world, and their adoring followers are also notable for going absolutely nuts.
For instance, it has been reported that someone once put a jar of their exhaled breath up for auction online, and it sold for thousands of dollars. This is really an example of the next level of fandom!
For those who are unaware, the former couple first met in 2003 while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Shortly after, they fell in love and started dating, and currently, the actors are parents to six children.
In fact, after almost five years of marriage and just a few months after Pitt and Jolie announced their separation, the Maleficent star filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.“
The Strange Story Of Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie’s Exhaled Breath
The majority of celebrity collectibles are regular everyday items like attire, autographed posters, Hollywood set props, etc. Then there are even other types of memorabilia. No matter how bizarre, items are connected to famous names, it will always have fans, who are willing to pay to own them. Take into account, for example, the exhaled breath of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in a jar.
According to Digital Spy, an alleged exhaled breath by Mr. & Mrs. Smith’s lead actors was auctioned off on eBay around 2005. The bid reportedly began at $9.99 and increased to $75,100 with eight days left before being purchased by an unidentified buyer after 91 bids.
The seller even distributed images of Pitt and Jolie from their movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith and clips of the air being scooped during the premiere.
The seller promoted the air in the following manner:
“Be the first to own this jar of Celebrity air, which may contain air molecules that came in direct contact with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt!”
Further, it stated:
“We are not guaranteeing this air sample contains air molecules that came in contact with any celebrity epidermal layer or respiratory system, but the sample was captured in the proximity of the celebrities and air molecules that did come in direct contact.”
Joe Wilson has reportedly posted the jar of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s ‘celebrity air’ on eBay, according to a report by Daily Mail.
Various Other Strange Celebrity Memorabilia
The ultimate dream of many fans is to own a piece of their favorite celebrity. For example, there have also been sales of Justin Bieber hair clippings that have reached $40,668.
Similar to this, John Lennon once gave his housekeeper a tooth he had extracted and advised her to give it to her daughter as the ultimate (if odd) Beatles memento. An auction was eventually held for the infamous tooth, and a Canadian dentist won it for $31,200.
Having even a small portion of a celebrity’s body is sufficient for some fans.
In 2008, a fan paid thousands of dollars for a used facial tissue belonging to Scarlett Johansson.
The Lucy actress once decided to auction off a tissue showing signs of the illness to raise money for charity. The used tissue with Johansson’s signature was bought for $5,300 and then donated to USA Harvest.
However, some fans are content with just the gifts that have only made contact with their favorite celebrities.
Other known artifacts put up for auction, according to HuffPost, include Gary Coleman’s kid-sized Gap sweatpants, Justin Timberlake’s leftover breakfast, and an alleged pregnancy test that was found in Britney Spears’ hotel room waste basket.
Whatever the item may be, if a celebrity discards it, someone out there (a diehard fan) will probably be willing to buy it.
