Pitt buys yacht for wife

Brad Pitt has bought wife Jennifer Aniston the same yacht that Richard Burton gave Elizabeth Taylor.

The 40-year-old actor paid 3m for the Kalizma as a token of love for Aniston, says The Sun.

In 1967 Burton paid 80,000 for the 165ft-long boat as a present for Taylor after she won an Oscar for Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?

A friend told The Sun: "The boat used to be owned by Hollywood's golden couple - and 40 years on, history is repeating itself."

The 98-year-old vessel, which Pitt bought from an Indian brewing tycoon, used to be packed with antique furniture and works of art.

The friend added: "Brad wanted Jennifer to know how much he thinks of her. This was the perfect way."
