5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Steffi Kammerer, Journalist for celebrity/lifestyle magazine:
"For the media this is more or less, the jackpot - you know the wedding, the baby. So, this is something the paparazzi has been waiting for for months and the baby picture is probably going to be the most expensive picture ever."

9. Various of newspaper headlines showing Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
"We are more or less indifferent (about having celebrities in town). When Sylvester Sylonne was here in the square he thought it was nice but strange that no one asked him for an autograph. The town is like gold because people mind there own business."

The mayor of an idyllic lakefront retreat in Lake Como, Italy said Saturday that she had been told to remain on standby for possible official duties until the evening - fanning rumours of a wedding here of Hollywood glamour couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Cernobbio Mayor Simona Saladini also said she had been told Saturday that police in the Lake Como area had been placed on alert and that a private security firm had increased security around George Clooney's nearby villa.
"I was told to get ready and so I am getting ready, " Saladini told The Associated Press as she had her hair done Saturday morning at a local hair salon.
Saladini had at least one wedding confirmed for Saturday: that of an older couple at city hall.
In the town city,dozens of media gathered on shores of Lake Como in search of a scoop.
Even some locals joined in with the growing excitement, dressing up as a bride and groom, and holding a mock-wedding on the shores of the lake.
To make his point, he recalled how Sylvester Stallone once got peeved at the locals for not asking him for an autograph.
"He was angry because he walked from here to there and no one stopped him," Sitta said with a grin, as he reminisced about the episode about five
years ago at his lakefront Holmes Lido restaurant.
The locals, he explained patiently, simply aren't interested in the stars.
In the nearby town of Laglio, where the couple's friend Clooney keeps his Villa Oleandra, Mayor Giuseppe Mantero played down rumours of any possible nuptials, saying long-term construction projects on the estate made any wedding there virtually impossible.
"I have not been read any notification about this and I have not been directly notified that something is really being prepared," he told AP Television News on Saturday.
Saladini said she was contacted by a wedding agency last November or December that was interested in scouting locations for a possible wedding
of a "famous actor" who had filmed a movie at the town's famous Villa Erba, the former home of the late Italian aristocrat and movie director Luchino Visconti.
Saladini said she concluded that the movie was 'Ocean's 12' and was told it was 'Mr Brad Pitt'.
There was no evidence of any pending nuptials on Saturday at Villa Erba.
The only action under way there was the installation of a new bathroom.
Saladini declined to say who had told her to remain on standby for possible official duties, and similarly declined to identify the private
security company that she said had reported increased security around Clooney's villa.
Another possible location for the wedding is Cernobbio's famous luxury resort, Villa D'Este, which often hosts stars and international conventions.
But on Saturday, all was quiet and officials repeated previous claims they knew nothing of a possible wedding.
Clooney's representative, Stan Rosenfield, has said he would not comment on the wedding rumours.
Pitt's representative, Cindy Guagenti, also has declined to comment.
