A love letter making rounds on Facebook timelines and relationship blogs is again being mistakingly attributed to one of Hollywood's most famous faces.
The profession of love is allegedly the work of Brad Pitt, a testament to the strength of his bond with his leading lady Angelina Jolie. It is being lauded as an example of how men should uplift and encourage their significant others by relationship bloggers and people reposting the letter, but many of work's lines make it obvious that it is the work of someone other than Pitt. The entire letter can be read here.
The first line of the letter is perhaps the strongest evidence that it was not penned by Pitt.
“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and problems with children," the letter reads. And though the pair do have several children, they are not married and have never been. But this small detail hasn't kept the letter from going viral and capturing the hearts of romantics worldwide.
"I began to pamper her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised her and pleased her every minute. I gave her lots of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends," read another portion of the sappy letter that remains unverified by the actor's camp.
So if you come across the note, please don't fall victim to the notion that Pitt was its creator. But authenticity aside, it features some fairly solid relationship advice. And it likely won't hurt to incorporate a few of its tips into your own love life -- especially if you and your sweetie aspire to the heights of this fictional version of Brangelina.
