Over the weekend, Angelina Jolie spoke publicly about her divorce from Brad Pitt for the first time.
It’s been months since the couple parted ways following a still-mysterious confrontation between Pitt and the couple’s eldest son aboard a private jet, but until this week, both actors have refrained from speaking about the split publicly.
That’s not terribly surprising, considering how closely Pitt and Jolie guarded the details of their personal lives were throughout their marriage.
Of course, true privacy isn’t possible at that level of fame, which means that in the absence of on-the-record updates from the tabloid media will meet the demand for Brad and Angie news with unsubstantiated rumors.
We’ve already heard (almost certainly bogus) reports that Brad is dating Kate Hudson.
Now it’s Angie’s turn for a made-up rebound relationship.
And gossip columnists have decided to set her up with an even more high profile and unlikely new boo:
Yes, according to Star magazine, Angelina is dating Jared Leto.
To be clear, we wouldn’t put it past her, and when Jolie does move on, it will probably be with someone famous and weird as hell, not unlike Leto.
We just don’t think it’s happening yet.
A source tells the magazine that Angie and Jared aren’t just hooking up, they’re rushing headlong into a serious relationship:
“The word is they spoke several times on the phone before meeting up in L.A. for dinner, and they’ve been seeing each other whenever they can since then,” says one source.
“Angie’s been telling friends Jared has a special way of making her feel good about herself.”
Another insider adds:
“He’s been good for her, helping put a smile back on Angie’s face.”
Yes, he’s putting a smile on that face of hers.
We can’t help but thing the person who made this source up got Jared confused with Heath Ledger.
Anyway, as we said, this almost certainly BS, but we wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s impossible.
This is a woman who went from Billy Bob Thornton to Brad Pitt.
In a way, Jared Leto is the next logical step.
Which would make this the only time there was anything logical about Jared Leto.
