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?
