The world famous couple kept things casual for their low-key outing with Pitt wearing a button-down shirt and slacks and topping the ensemble with a brown panama hat; Jolie, 40, wore a striped boat-neck shirt, flats, and her trademark black skinny jeans.
One of the sandwich artists shared that the couple ordered two Meatball Marinara foot-longs, one Chicken Teriyaki sandwich, a kids’ meal for their younger children. The couple paid a total tab of $44. Pitt, 51, left the excited sandwich artist a plush tip of $6.
Apparently, the famous husband and wife took advantage of the discount menu.
One Subway employee told local CBS affiliate KCAL9 that everyone who was in the shop at that time was starstruck by the couple’s surprise visit.
Grisell Gonzalez, Subway employee, says that the A-List couple were so cute.
“They were very, like, hugging and kissing and they looked like they were really in love and everything,’ Gonzalez continued.
The sandwich cruise of the superstar couple was in perfect timing for Subway.
Just last week, the chain fired their weight-loss pitchman Jared Fogle after recent controversies sparked the FBI to search and investigate his house after a woman accused him of making inappropriate comments about middle-school girls.

Fogle was famous for losing 245 pounds eating low-calorie Subway sandwiches. The recent revelations shocked most Americans and Subway consumers.
BusinessInsider.com says, “The fact that the socially-conscious and wealthy couple took their children there sends the message that Subway is a family-friendly choice.”
“With the Jared Fogle scandal looming, the brand needs this kind of exposure.”
