When the world's most photogenic celebrity family heads to India, you can be sure even a rickshaw ride will be documented. Now we know that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have deemed that Maddox is old enough to enjoy rickshaw rides in the Indian town of Pune, while Zahara and Shiloh are perhaps too young. The jetsetting actors are in India to film A Mighty Heart, a film based on the memoir by Mariane Pearl about the kidnapping and murder of her husband, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. Angelina will be playing Mariane Pearl (Dan Futterman is playing Daniel Pearl) while Brad is producing the film. And, yes, there have been skirmishes between photographers and the bodyguards.

Last year, Mariane Pearl bought an apartment in the West Village, a purchase that was featured in a "Habitats" column in the NY Times. And Pearl herself explained the move and single motherhood in a September 11, 2005 NY Times article, writing, "I needed a neighborhood with two characteristics seemingly at odds, anonymity and intimacy. After moving within Manhattan four times in two years, I hoped I would find what I was looking for below 14th Street, above Canal and west of Broadway."
