Actress pays through the nose to freshen up at top hotel

It seems Hollywood actresses will stop at nothing to look their best.

So it should come as no surprise to learn that Angelina Jolie and her five-year-old son Maddox spent more than $700 (£356) on Friday – just to take a shower at a posh hotel.

Angie, 31, and her son made a stop at Shutters On The Beach Hotel in Santa Monica, California so they could shower and freshen up.

A source tells American magazine Star: ‘Angelina said they only wanted the room for two hours – time enough for them both to take a shower.

‘She was very sweet and seemed like a concerned mum. It was just very bizarre, when she and Brad Pitt own two house here in Los Angeles, that she would need to spend that kind of money on a hotel room just so she and Maddox could shower.’

The Jolie-Pitts have recently moved their family to New Orleans, Louisiana, where Brad is currently filming The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.
