A-list Hollywood celebrities Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie aka Brangelina have arrived in Singapore. The superstar couple were spotted at One Fullerton on Wednesday, 27th August. Of course, it’s not really them. It’s their wax figures. Close enough!
And the wax figures weren’t just created by anyone or for any random occasion.
They were created specially for Singapore in the Madame Tussauds studio in London. Apparently, each figure took approximately 3 months to produce. The process meant each strand of hair on the figures was inserted individually using a forked needle, while Jolie’s eyelashes were also inserted one by one, and all of her tattoos were handpainted.
General Manager of Madame Tussauds Singapore Ms Lily Lim said, “We are very excited to be opening Madame Tussauds Singapore. This is a world class attraction which draws millions of visitors every year and we have no doubt that it will appeal to both local Singaporeans and international tourists alike.”
Aww. How apt is the timing since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were reportedly married at Chateau Miraval (with just their children and some friends in attendance) in France last weekend?
The (now married in real life) couple’s waxworks were among to first to arrive in Singapore ahead of the opening of Madame Tussauds on 25th October. Madame Tussauds Singapore will be located at Imbiah Lookout on Sentosa.
Expect to see a mix of local, Asian, and international celebrities on display (with each figure costing more than SGD300,000), including Johnny Depp, David Beckham, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga, just to name a few.
