Nobody Even Glances At Young Boys Selling Teddy Bear, Then Hollywood A-Lister Shows Up (Photos)

Two twin boys selling their teddy bear never would have guessed in their wildest dreams who would be its next owner.

After outgrowing their old cuddly toy named AG, Allen and Brandon were encouraged by their Dad, Tim Alexander, to sell the massive over 8 feet-tall bear, reports.

Hoping to teach them entrepreneurship, the boys stood outside holding a sign while trying to sell the bear.

Their Dad, Tim, stood behind filming the scene before uploading the video later on YouTube, which one can watch below.

As the boys waited outside, nobody seemed to care.

Time dragged on until, one hour later, a mysterious white Cadillac pulled over.

Their Dad, still filming, was shocked to see who walked out: Angelina Jolie with her son, Shiloh.

"The boys made their first sale to a movie star!," Tim would later exclaim.

Yet while the boys were thrilled to have a potential buyer, they had no idea who they were actually dealing with.

It was only when their father explained she had starred in Kung Fu Pandadid they realize how famous Jolie was.

The family helped Jolie stuff the massive bear into her trunk.

"You guys are so cool! It's so nice to meet you!," Jolie said to the boys, hugging them, while the father encouraged them to say thank you.

What happened next only served to excite them even more: not only did Jolie buy the big teddy bear, she gave both of the boys $50 each.

Tim explains they were only hoping for $40 - not $100.

"What a nice lady," remarked the happy Dad.

Many on social media praised Jolie for the act, although few were unsurprised.

"Not surprised to hear that she did this for these sweet boys," wrote on user on's Facebook page. "She has a big heart for children but boy want they have a great story to tell their children someday. I'm happy that she decided to stop by and make these boys day so sweet of her to do so."
