Angelina Jolie bags record £6.5m ad deal

London: It has emerged that Angelina Jolie has reportedly signed a 6.45-million-pounds deal to become the new face of fashion label Louis Vuitton.

The contract is believed to be a record for a single advertising campaign, beating the 3.2-million-pounds deal won by Catherine Zeta-Jones to promote T-Mobile, reports the Daily Star.

It dwarfs the 2.5-million-pounds Nicole Kidman was paid to be the face of Chanel perfume and 1.9-million-pounds Gwyneth Paltrow got from Estee Lauder.

Reports in the US said Hollywood babe Angelina, 35, is due to take part in a photo shoot with famed photographer Annie Leibowitz.

The adverts for the French label will appear in newspapers and magazines later this year.
