Ange wants a bit of Becks

Watch out, Posh – Ange is crush­ing on your man!

An­gelina Jolie may have kicked Brad Pitt to the kerb, but now she’s set her sights on a hunky re­place­ment – David Beck­ham! Yep, NW hears the ac­tress, 43, has been qui­etly crush­ing on the soc­cer stud for years. Now, in an ef­fort to get to know him bet­ter, she’s been se­cretly mes­sag­ing him about pos­si­bly col­lab­o­rat­ing to­gether on a char­ity project.

We bet Becks’ wifey Vic­to­ria won’t be too happy about that!

“Ange and David came very close to work­ing with each other sev­eral years ago for an ad cam­paign, and she’s never been able to get him out of her mind since,” spills an in­sider. “She’s al­ways had a crush on him. They have both worked with the United Na­tions as good­will am­bas­sadors, and word is she got his con­tact de­tails from one of their mu­tual pals and is try­ing to set up a get-to­gether.”

Ange’s pub­lic per­sona has suf­fered a lot since she split from Brad in Septem­ber 2016. Her rep­u­ta­tion took a beat­ing dur­ing the former cou­ple’s bit­ter cus­tody bat­tle, af­ter it was re­vealed she was try­ing to keep their six chil­dren from Brad.

“Ange would like to re­pair some of that dam­age by team­ing with David,” adds the source. “Ev­ery­one loves David. He’s very pop­u­lar with the fans and she would look good stand­ing next to him. He can do no wrong, so hitch­ing her wagon to him would be a smart PR move.

“Ange thinks they have lots in com­mon – be­sides beauty and brains,” adds the in­sider. “They want to change the world. Plus, he could teach some of his soc­cer moves to [Ange’s daugh­ter]

Shiloh, who’s a keen player.” This isn’t the first time Ange and Becks have dis­cussed work­ing to­gether. They were very close to star­ring in an Ar­mani fra­grance cam­paign to­gether back in 2009. “When you have David Beck­ham and An­gelina Jolie signed up to your fash­ion house, it’s a no-brainer to link them up,” a source said at the time. “They ap­peal to a di­verse au­di­ence, and a col­lab­o­ra­tion would cre­ate so much pub­lic­ity, it would push Ar­mani head and shoul­ders above their ri­vals.” How­ever, Becks had a change of heart and pulled out of the cam­paign – which would have in­cluded racy un­der­wear shots. “She is an amaz­ing per­son and so is Brad,” David said at the time. “They’re an in­cred­i­ble cou­ple and they have an amaz­ing fam­ily. You know she wouldn’t do it and I wouldn’t do it. At the end of the day, I wouldn’t do it be­cause I’m mar­ried.”

Given Ange’s “man-eater” rep, and the fact she “stole” Brad from Jen­nifer Anis­ton when they were go­ing through a rough patch, sources say Posh wouldn’t be happy about Ange get­ting cosy with David.

“Vic­to­ria pouts and kicks up a stink when­ever David is seen get­ting friendly with other women, so there’s lit­tle doubt she is telling him not to sign up to any projects with An­gelina,” says the in­sider. “Vic­to­ria knows how it will look and peo­ple will talk.

“Even so, David would no doubt be in­trigued about team­ing up with An­gelina, and flat­tered by the at­ten­tion and com­pli­ments she throws his way,” adds the source. “It wouldn’t be a good thing for his mar­riage, which is strained enough as it is. The re­la­tion­ship has weathered a few storms and they’ve been through a par­tic­u­larly rough patch lately. David join­ing forces with An­gelina would surely put it to the test!” n

Could David be in­ter­ested in a raunchy un­der­wear shoot now?
