Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have caused such a stir at son Maddox's new school the headmaster has been forced to warn parents not to pester them.

Dan Cooke, Director of Operations the Lycee Francais de New York - where six-year-old Maddox recently enrolled - has written to parents requesting they stop taking photographs and asking Hollywood's golden couple for autographs.

The letter - which was leaked to the New York Observer newspaper - said: "Regretfully, I have seen some parents taking pictures, asking for autographs, talking to the media and even shouting at Ms. Jolie and Mr. Pitt for recognition.

"Therefore, in the interests of the school and safety of your children I must ask for everyone to please respect the family's privacy and discontinue these practices."

The principle also revealed he met Brad and Angelina's security team before Maddox started at the school in September.

He added: "I want to make you aware that before the first day of school I met with Ms. Angelina Jolie and Mr. Brad Pitt's security team to discuss the best manner in which for them to drop off and pick up their son. Our foremost goal was to cause the least amount of disruption to the school and to ensure the security of all of our students and families."

Meanwhile, Brad and Angelina spent the whole day on Wednesday meeting with financial and diplomatic leaders to discuss their charity work and promote good causes. ( FF )
