They’ve ditchedthe daddies!
Asaucy new romance is in the air! Woman’sDay can reveal A-lister Angelina Jolie has found love again with actress Evan Rachel Wood.
“Angelina is absolutely smitten with Evan,” spills a Hollywood source. “And while she’s determined to keep things private for as long as she can, she’s told pals that she’s done with men and is the happiest she’s been in a long time.”
The bisexual stars first met at the Screen Actors Guild Awards 10 years ago, when Angelina was still married to Brad Pitt, 55, and Evan was with goth rocker Marilyn Manson. Apparently, the actresses shared an instant and “magnetic attraction”.
“Ange always thought Evan was incredibly attractive and said they had a spark after hanging out backstage at the awards, but they both had partners at the time,” reveals the insider. “They had an electric chemistry, which no-one could deny, and Brad even joked about feeling left out after Ange gushed about Evan afterwards.”
Evan, 32, who was formerly engaged to Marilyn and married to British actor Jamie Bell, once declared, “I’m up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl ...”
The two actresses reconnected at Disney’s headquarters in Burbank a few months ago, when they were doing voice-overs for their upcoming movies Maleficent:MistressofEvil and Frozen2. Swapping phone numbers, they started meeting for dinner whenever Angelina was in town.
Our showbiz insider spills, “They bonded over their marriage splits and how much Ange appreciated their friendship given she’d lost so many pals and had been feeling increasingly lonely. Evan reckons the romance happened very organically and it progressed out of their friendship – gushing about how Ange is one of the most passionate and inspiring people she’s ever met.”
Westworld star Evan, who shares six-year-old son Jack k with her former husband, says Angelina has welcomed her boy into her home like one of her own, and has introduced them to her children, Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
According to our source, “Ange has told Evan she’s head over heels and wants to make a life with her – with the pair planning their first vacation with the kids and even talking about moving in together.”
Angelina has been busy travelling, both to promote Maleficent2 and to film her
new Marvel film Eternals, as well as sorting out the details of her divorce from f Brad, to whom she was married for five years. years And now she’s thrilled she has found someone to share her experiences with.
“Ange says after everything she’s been through, she just wants to be happy and give the children a stable, comfortable home, which she knows she can provide with Evan by her side. She’s credited her for helping to keep her calm and sane throughout the storms of her continued divorce battle.
“She says after being with men for so many years, Evan was her sign that it was time to give another relationship a chance again. She’s hoping that once her divorce is finalised, she can at last move forward with her life and a future with Evan.”
While most of Angelina’s relationships have been with men, she once famously dated model Jenny Shimizu after meeting on the set of Foxfire, and they had a passionate on-off affair for 10 years. Such was the intensity of their love, Angelina declared she could have married Jenny.
Just last month she revealed she had a crush on her Maleficent co-star Michelle Pfeiffer, 61, when she was a teenager! After saying she was “into” the actress when she starred in Grease2, Angelina added, “Scarface, I also had a big crush on you then.”
But now it’s Evan who has Angelina under her spell!
