angelina: reuniting with brad?
She’s been quiet of late, but there’s a change coming, and it could mean a reunion with her ex…
We’ve missed Angelina Jolie recently. Following her red-carpet hiatus after her split from Brad Pitt in September 2016, Ange was a regular on the awards circuit this year. But after skipping last month’s Oscars, she’s scarcely been seen, apart from a couple of LA outings with her brood.
While it’s common for major A-listers to disappear from public sight, it’s unusual for 42-year-old Angelina at the moment. She was at everything at the start of the year – presenting at the Golden Globes in January (remember that semi-awks run-in with Jen An?) and flying to London for the BAFTAS – plus, her open support of the #Metoo movement meant that everyone was assuming she would be at the Academy Awards.
But our sources have revealed that it’s all been down to Ange wanting some intense family time before her next big job, which will see her moving to London and could mean a reunion with Brad.
‘Ange will be in the UK to start filming Maleficent 2 soon,’ says a source. ‘She’s looking forward to a change of scenery, as I think she’s become a bit bored of LA. In the past month, she’s stayed off-radar just so she can spend some quality time with the kids – it’s going to be a big change, as they’re all older now.’
But if you were wondering how that would work with Brad and their co-parenting, the pair have apparently come to an amicable agreement that works for everyone.
‘They’ve discussed it all at length, and Brad has planned some of his upcoming work in the UK,’ adds our source. ‘They’ve been getting on really well, and it’s possible that the move could heal things between them even more.’
Of course, the pair spent time in London before, reportedly living on the outskirts for six months in 2016 with the family, while Brad worked on World War Z 2. But while the nostalgia could spark old embers, our insider says it’s not the main focus for Ange.
‘She has a lot going on and they’re still in the middle of their divorce,’ says the insider. ‘She’s keen to keep things at the level they’ve been at with Brad, but the most important thing to her is that the kids are happy – and then it’s all about her career. Ange is determined to prove she’s doing better than ever. Neither Brad, or any other man, is at the forefront of her plans right now.’
Jen An and Ange do their best to avoid run-ins Brad and Ange as they were, back in 2014
