‘Sur­prise, WE’RE DAT­ING!’

Af­ter one false start, things be­tween the long-time friends are get­ting se­ri­ous...

NW - - Nw News -

Just last month, An­gelina Jolie ad­mit­ted that she hates be­ing sin­gle. Like, hates with a cap­i­tal H. “I don’t en­joy [it],” the for­mer Mrs Pitt, 42, moaned about no longer hav­ing a sig­nif­i­cant other. “It’s not some­thing I wanted. There’s noth­ing nice about it. It’s just hard.”

Well, it seems like Cupid heard her loud and clear, as we’re told Johnny Depp has since swooped in to save the mother-of-six from eter­nal sin­gle­dom!

“Ange doesn’t let a lot of peo­ple in, but Johnny is one of the few she likes – and trusts,” a pal tells NW ex­clu­sively.

“They’ve known each other for years, and every­one al­ways thought there was an at­trac­tion be­tween them. Of course, they were al­ways with other peo­ple, but now they’re free to ex­plore whether there’s any­thing there.”

The dare­devil Pi­rates Of The Caribbean star cer­tainly seems to be more ad­ven­tur­ous and Ange’s type than Brad ever was.

In fact, all-amer­i­can Brad was al­ways the odd one out in Ange’s back cat­a­logue of exes!

“I mean, c’mon... Johnny and Billy Bob [Thorn­ton] are prac­ti­cally cut from the same cloth,” dishes the pal.

An­other box Johnny ticks? He’s al­ready in with her

kids. Yep Yep, Mad­dox, 16, Pax, 13, Shiloh, 1 11, Za­hara, 12, and twins Knox Kn and Vivi­enne, nine, al­ready adore a him, hav­ing grown clo close to him when he filmed The Th Tourist with their mum bac back in 2009.

In­deed, it was re­cently claimed that t it was im­por­tant that Ange Ange’s brood get along with the n next man she se­ri­ously dates.

“For An An­gelina, the chil­dren come firs first, and any­one she dates will have to meet the ap­proval of all six kids, and that’s no mean feat,” a source tells Hol­ly­wood Life. “An­gelina would like to be­lieve that she will fall in love again one day, and meet her soul mate to grow old with.”

And while it’s early days, she may have found him in Johnny.

“They’ve only told a hand­ful of friends in case it doesn’t end up go­ing any­where,” a fam­ily in­sider tells NW. “They don’t want oth­ers in­ter­fer­ing, but they’re re­ally happy to­gether.”

But it won’t be long un­til the rest of the world finds out they’re an item – if Ange’s plans to have Johnny as her lead­ing man in Cleopa­tra come to fruition.

The ac­tress re­cently re­vealed she was back in dis­cus­sions to star in the flick, a project she was first at­tached to in 2014, with Brad, 53, tipped to play the Queen of Egypt’s hubby Mark Antony.

But now that Brad’s sooo oo 2016, Ange wants Johnny nny to take his place.

“She thinks he’s per­fect ctc for the role and has al­ready y floated the idea to him over one e of their se­cret ro­man­tic din­ner nnner dates,” spills the in­sider. r.

What’s more, Ange likely ke­lyly has her fin­gers crossed that thaat Cleopa­tra will be the part rt that thatt forces Hol­ly­wood to wel­come lcoome her back with open arms ms – and hope­fully land her an­other anoother Os­car to go with her Best st Sup­port­ing Ac­tress tro­phy phy for Girl, In­ter­rupted.

“She’s made it clear she’s he’s look­ing for the script and nd the role that will win her r the Os­car once and for all for or Best Bes st Ac­tress,” celeb bi­og­ra­pher her Ian n Halperin tells NW ex­clu­sively. usively y.

Mean­while, it’s not the e first time Ange and Johnny, 54, have been at the cen­tre of ro­mance ru­mours.

As first re­ported by NW, the pair briefly dated last year fol­low­ing her split from Brad – but much to Johnny’s dis­may, her break-up and the drama sur­round­ing it was too fresh for the new re­la­tion­ship to go any­where.

But now, a year down the line, she’s ready for them to give it a sec­ond shot.

As they say, tim­ing is ev­ery­thing, Ange! n
