Angelina Jolie doesn’t want to hang with Uma Thurman because of Ethan Hawke

taking lives

I sometimes feel like I’m the only person who enjoyed that Angelina Jolie movie Taking Lives. I always liked when she played cops/detectives (I wish she would do that more often). Anyway, I remember the stories from the Canadian production of Taking Lives. Angelina might have had an affair with Ethan Hawke, back when he was still with Uma Thurman. Incidentally, there were stories about her fooling around with Olivier Martinez on that film too. She was single and ready to mingle, and I’ve always sort of believed the Ethan rumors, even though both denied it in various ways (Ethan still worships her though). I bring this up because the National Enquirer claims that Angelina doesn’t want Brad to spend any time with Quentin Tarantino because A) they’ll just get high and B) Uma Thurman.

BRAD PITT and fiancée Angelina Jolie are facing a thorny new crisis! Sources say the “Maleficent” star has turned up her nose at Brad’s request to socialize with his buddy, director Quentin Tarantino, and Quentin’s new squeeze, actress Uma Thurman.

“Despite Brad’s best efforts, Angelina has made it clear she won’t spend time with Quentin and Uma,” said an insider. “She claims to have no hard feelings against them, but everyone knows she thinks Quentin is a bad influence on Brad.”

Two-time Oscar winner Tarantino – who’s been dating Uma, star of his “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill” movies, for several weeks – has been close to Brad since the actor starred in his 2009 film “Inglourious Basterds.” But insiders say Angelina is still fuming at Tarantino because the 51-year-old Hollywood bad boy admitted that he and Brad, 50, smoked hash together in the South of France six years ago.

But that’s not the only reason Angelina wants to keep her distance from Hollywood’s latest “it” couple. Sources say the 39-year-old sexpot also feels awkward around Uma, 44, because Angelina was accused of having an affair with the blonde bombshell’s then-husband, actor Ethan Hawke, in 2003. That’s when Angelina and Hawke, 43, shared raunchy sex scenes while co-starring in the thriller “Taking Lives.” Uma and Hawke divorced two years later while Angelina went on to lure Brad away from then-wife Jennifer Aniston.

“Angelina took huge exception to being accused of having an affair with Ethan while he was still married, and she’s always been keen to avoid any confrontation with Uma,” said the source. “Brad feels it would be good for Angie to clear the air with Uma, and going on a double date with her and Quentin is a perfect way to do it. But Angie flat-out refuses, and her stubbornness has gotten on Brad’s nerves big-time.”

Ever since Tarantino revealed his druggie night with Brad, Angie’s kept a close eye on her man’s partying – and away from Tarantino, added another source.

“It’s a real shame, because Brad’s desperate to spend more time with his Los Angeles-based friends,” said the second source. “Besides that, he was thrilled to hear Quentin is dating Uma. Everyone knows he’s been in love with her for years. But Angie won’t back down, and it’s become a major issue between them.”

[From The National Enquirer]

Long story short, it’s not really an issue with Brangelina, it’s just an excuse to wonder aloud if Angelina and Ethan really did bang at some point and if Uma really does hold a grudge. I remember Ethan flaunting his rebound relationships after he and Uma split, and there really was some serious gossip that Angelina was one of those flings. And I don’t think Uma and Angelina have been in the same room ever since. Huh.

      @Eva, who wrote: “Bullshite”

      I couldn’t agree more. If you Google “Who is the Canadian model Ethan Hawke had an affair with during the filming of “Taking Lives” you’ll get pages of this:

      “Ethan Hawke was dating Canadian model Jennifer Perzow while filming Taking Lives in Montreal, Canada.”

      Even the “National Enquirer” printed a story on October 10, 2003 titled “Uma and Ethan” about the couple separating because of ‘her’ rumored affair with Quentin Tarantino during the filming of “Kill Bill” and Ethan’s rumored affair with a 22-year-old Canadian model during the filming of “Taking Lives.” Here’s the link:

      I don’t know why people are still insisting that Ethan had an affair with Angelina Jolie during “Taking Lives” when Canadian sources where reporting on Ethan’s affair with Jennifer Perzow in detail (which is how Uma found out about it).

      • Maya says:

        Face it your precious st angie is anything but.Cheated with Brad,Ethan and Billy BoB?LOL she really is something.Total homewrecker.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Maya, who wrote: “Face it your precious st angie is anything but.Cheated with Brad,Ethan and Billy BoB?LOL she really is something.Total homewrecker.”

        Now, this is when ‘I’ bring out the ‘delusional Angie hater’ label, and use it. Not because I think people who criticize the Joile aren’t entitled to their opinion and aren’t allowed to dislike the Jolie (they are), but because I believe the people who insist on repeating the same negative thing over and over and over and over again despite other people stating or posting facts to the contrary really ‘are’ posting it out of hate. Why else would a person continue to say a negative thing is so after so many have said it isn’t true, and have provided links to facts to back it up?

        Maya … in 2003 The National Enquirer didn’t say word one about an affair between Ethan Hawke and Angelina Jolie. It was all about the 22-year-old Canadian model Ethan was ‘really’ having an affair with.

        Billy Bob Thornton wasn’t married or engaged when he and Angie got together. He ‘was,’ however, married when he got together with Laura Dern … who also broke up the marriage of her recent ex-husband. She and the ex-wife were pregnant at the same time. Her ex-husband’s ex-wife was 8-months pregnant before she filed for divorce.

        And finally … the only people who call Angelina Jolie a ‘Saint’ are those who hate her. Funny, that, non?

    • starrywonder says:

      Exactly. It has been proven that he was cheating on Uma just not with Angelina. Isn’t that when the story about the babysitter/nanny broke too? He kinda sucks.

  2. TheCountess says:

    So she’s worried that Uma will revenge bang Brad? Ang, Brad’s best looking days are far back in the rearview mirror. I think he’s safe 😉

    • lucy2 says:

      While I agree about Brad’s looks…have you seen who Uma is with at the moment? LOL.

      • Camille (The Original) says:

        Brad looks fine for a man of his (or any) age. As for who Uma is with now… well *cough* that is a totally different kettle of fish looks wise, LOL indeed.

    • Cecilia says:

      Lol…I agree.

  3. sure says:

    No, no, no.
    She was a virgin when she got with Brad.

    • Wallamalooo says:

      Hahahah! love it!

    • Rose says:

      Ethan said about Jolie :

      “Once you kiss her you forgot your name.”

      Since she public said she had several lovers at the same time…well you knows.

    • Kim1 says:

      She is still a virgin.She and Brad have never had sex.A surrogate carried the kids. The truth is out.

  4. Kiddo says:

    “Because of Ethan Hawke” is never the answer to any valid question, IMHO.

  5. eliza says:

    Not really keeping with the theme of this post but, I do believe I am the only person on earth who hated Iglourious Basterds. I hated it to the point it made me angry.

    Lol@ “double date”. What are they? High school sophomores?

    As for the story, everyone has moved on in their lives even if an affair took place. I am sure with 6 kids, movie work, health concerns, charitable works and travel, the Pitt-Jolies have no time to be brooding about “double dating” strategies or smoked hash 6-7 yrs ago. I doubt Tarantino and Thurman are either.

  6. Chicagogurl says:

    1st the article for this info is horribly written. When Angie lured Ethan? How about he’s an adult responsible for his own peen. 2nd I don’t buy it. Bet he tried and she has stayed a good friend. 2nd – why would she care about brad smoking pot? She’s admitted to way worse and always seamed lasse fare about pot in interviews. I doubt she constantly tells her husband what to do or that she slept with half of Hollywood.

    • JessMa says:

      I have no idea about the Ethan stuff. Don’t really care to be honest. She might care about the Hash stuff though. When you have kids it is ok to say we did drugs in the past when we were young and reckless. It is harder to say don’t do drugs even though I still do. Most parents don’t want their kids using drugs so you have to lead by example.

    • Badirene says:

      Men are never adults in charge of their own dangly bits, it is always the womans fault. First rule of Bang Club, yo.

    • kri says:

      This story looks like it was written by two 16 year-olds who watch “Pretty Little Liars” or something. I wouldn’t bang Ethan Hawke if he was a door that kept creaking open. He is so unattractive and smug. An old school Franco. Same hygiene standards and all.

      • I Choose Me says:

        I wouldn’t bang Ethan Hawke if he was a door that kept creaking open.

        I’ve never heard that expression before. I’m thinking of stealing it for future use. 😀

  7. Jayna says:

    Like a disagreement like this would ever be discussed past Angie and Brad in privacy. Neither one would share such a touchy disagreement with anyone else. People believe this crap? LOL

  8. huh says:

    Uma’s just 44? I always thought she was older.. I’ve been seeing her in (bad)movies for ages

    • eliza says:

      Lol. I know. I never understood her popularity beyond Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. All of her other movies that I have seen have been marginal at best with a load of terrible ones in that mix.

    • TheCountess says:

      Remember, she was quite young when she had her first big prominent role at seventeen in “Dangerous Liaisons,” so it feels like she’s been around forever because of her early start. Jeremy Sisto is the same way – that guy isn’t even forty, but I first saw him in “Grand Canyon” (1991) when he was sixteen and so it feels like he should be much older because of that longevity.

  9. Toot says:

    I remember an interview with Uma and she said Angelina had no part in her divorce. I think it was the nanny Ethan was banging, who is now his wife.

    Also, this story is all BS. The enquirer or any other tabloid couldn’t get any info on Angelina’s surgery, but they know details of supposed conversations? Yeah, whatever.

    • lucy2 says:

      I too think the nanny is when the marriage broke up, but the likelihood of the nanny being the only one he fooled around with is pretty low.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      I don’t know about the Nanny, but Ethan Hawke was having a fairly open affair with 22-year-old Canadian model Jennifer Perzow during the filming of “Taking Lives.” Even the National Enquirer wrote about in in October 2003. See my post above in #1 for the article link.

    • starrywonder says:

      I said this above. The nanny he was cheating on her with that became his second wife is what broke that marriage up. I remember it getting out about the Candian model he was seeing too while filming.

    • Jayna says:

      Before the nanny he was caught having an affair with his co-star, a Candadian model, in a movie. It was not Angie. It wasn’t anybody I recognized. That was the first big deal about cracks in their marriage and they broke up. The nanny came after the split, and then it was realized he was probably banging her too before they split up.

  10. Altariel says:

    Look at her 10-mile wide grin in the photo with Ethan and Olivier. Yeah, she did both of them.

    There was a time when Angie had no qualms about going after married men. So, not surprising if she did with Ethan.

    But the story just sounds dumb. I don’t think she’s worried about Uma or some hash. She’s busy with other stuff these days.

  11. Wren33 says:

    I don’t know if any or all of the rumors about Angelina’s drug use are true, but I highly doubt she is pissed if Brad smoke hash one night. Oh the horror!

    • Patricia says:

      I completely agree. Brad loves his weed, Angie loves her Brad. I doubt after all these years together that his use of safe substances is any kind of issue. I’m sure he’s not puffing a pipe in his kids faces, he seems to be a very responsible father.
      And to people who say you can’t smoke weed and be a good parent, that’s crazy. My parents smoked week my whole life. I didnt even know until I was well into my teens. My parents are great parents!

  12. ThatGirl says:

    I can’t believe that Angelina Jolie is the kind of woman that gives her man a tough time about smoking some hash. Can you? OR that she wouldn’t be able to tough out an event or something with Uma in the room. At some point she must have been in the room with a man/woman she’s slept with and their new boo, no?

  13. Marlene says:

    Considering the fact that Uma herself denied the Ethan/Angelina rumor, i’m going to say this story is bullshit. Or maybe they did have an affair and she doesn’t believe it because she’s naive? lol

  14. lizzie says:

    she looks so beautiful in those photos!

  15. somebody needs attention says:

    Somebody needs attention, and it isn’t the people.who refuse to spend millions on a publicist (Brad/Angie). Yeah, Brad looked super p*ssed yesterday/today as he was tearing up watching his Angie speak to world leaders, proudly holding her hand, kissing her cheek, etc. It wasn’t the stories of horible rape that were moving Brad, it was thoughts of missing Quentin. Brad bursting with pride/love during these Maleficent events..really all for Quentin. PLEASE. QT seems way too high maintenance, party animal to roll with parents of six, much less, Brad & Angie who even before kids were never big clubbers or schmoozers. Both Brad & Angie are always kind to everyone…from stars to crew. There is not one real incident of them warring with anybody, unlike so many in Hollywood who get witnessed, interviewed, taped, dissing/judging others and being divas. Uma seemed pretty pretty pap/attention/party friendly during her relationship with that rich dude and went for coffee with her days old baby, so that is something to consider when looking for the truth about such a clearly fake story. The only person you can prove Angie was with after Jonny, jenny & Bbt is Brad. Ethan may have tried, but no matter how much people lie about it, there is NO PROOF Angie ever said yes. She was all about Maddox then. Could Uma be an irrationally jealous liar? Possible, but I’ve never seen any proof of that either.

  16. Renee says:

    Look at Ethan’s face and look at where his hand is positioned in the photo where the two of them are embracing…it’s pretty much on her ass. Maybe nothing did happen between the two of them but I am pretty sure that he wanted it schtup her. And who could blame him?? That woman is gorgeous!!! Look at her in those pictures, with her hair up like that!!

    I think she has calmed down and grown up and part of the script these days is to downplay the indiscretions of her youth but I think that she was a man (and woman) eater during that time… no judgement on my part though ( I secretly tip my hat to her).

    • Mouse says:

      I know! That picture is hott.

    • doofus says:

      that pic is the only reason I’d (potentially) believe this story. (as an aside…whenever you hear about an on-set affair, long after it happened, go back and look at red carpet photos from the movie’s release…the body language, or lack thereof, can be very telling.)

      whether or not they did is anybody’s guess but it’s clear to me that he WANTED to, even if they didn’t. not surprising tho, as I’ve heard he was (and still is) quite the “dog” when it comes to women.

      and as you said, who could blame him? she looks gorgeous in these pics.

      • Well, one thing to consider is this–is he touchy feely with his female costars? Some people are like that. Like I know that the reason the hardcore (read: crazy) fans of Scandal think Tony Goldwyn and Kerry Washington are together (even though that would be extremely HOT in real life) is because he’s someone who is very touchy feely…..he likes to hug, kisses her on the cheek, etc.

        People are different–some people think it’s perfectly normal to kiss your kids/relatives on the lips when you leave (like my uncle), and some don’t.

    • Ginger says:

      Yep I can see the sparks. That photo is HOT! Even is they did nothing there’s obvious chemistry but can you blame him? I can’t. She is still the most gorgeous woman onscreen (and probably anywhere that I’ve seen) IMHO.

  17. Mabry says:

    Why this story right now? Are Brad and Quentin collaborating on a project?

    • summer3 says:

      Not that I’ve heard, but this story sure does reek of something planted to get press. Totally fake story, BTW. The only thing Brad has said that he is missing since Angelina is sleep. Maybe better now the kids are getting older. Despite all the stories that Angelina is some sort of uber bitch that steals men, there has never been any proof of her meaness or stealing. Even Aniston, a proven homewrecker, says there was no stealing. Brad simply left and he never looked back. Angelina did say she was annoyed at Brad for building too high a skateboard ramp, but, as a mom of 2 daredevils, I think her anger is totally justified there!

  18. dcypher1 says:

    I love angie and all but she really is the queen of the Hollywood homewreckers also in that crew LeAnn rimes, sienna miller, kstew. But angie is queen. She bangs all her costars and is not monogamous which is fine but her married costars might not feel the same. She has no consideration to these guys wives. If I were uma id kill bill her ass.

  19. idsmith says:

    “the “Maleficent” star has turned up her nose at Brad’s request to socialize with his buddy, director Quentin Tarantino,”
    “Ever since Tarantino revealed his druggie night with Brad, Angie’s kept a close eye on her man’s partying ”
    Seriously, who talks like this. I don’t know a single person who has ever approached their spouse with a “request to socialize”. And the idea of Angelina being upset over a “druggie night”!! with Quentin is laughable. It sounds like they got a grade 7 student to write that piece. ha ha

  20. Decloo says:

    Oh my God, remember when Olivier Martinez was cute?

  21. I Choose Me says:

    Bullshit wrapped in bullshit with a side of bullshit.

    I can’t say for certain Angie did not have an affair with Hawke but that whole article about Brad pining to spend time with QT smoking hash and Angie saying no, is complete and utter fiction.

    • Cecilia says:

      Yes, why are they coming out with this now, so many years later? They took one kernel of could be & spun it into full fabrication.

  22. Ginger says:

    Uma and Quentin? EWWW. All I can think of is his foot fetish and I hate feet. Gross. I liked Pulp Fiction but that’s it. I think he’s so overrated.

  23. jonB says:

    Bet she will bang her daughters future boyfriends

    • zut alors! says:

      Since you can predict the future, can I have the Powerball numbers for Saturday’s drawing? Thanks in advance!

    • Steve says:

      Suspossedly she banged her mother’s Boyfriend when she was a teen.I wouldn’t put anything past homewrecker Angie.

      • So if she did sleep with her mother’s boyfriend when she was a TEENAGER, why is it that she’s the seductress, and the boyfriend (the GROWN ASS MAN) is the one who couldn’t help himself. Seriously? If she did sleep with her mother’s boyfriend–which I think originated from that weirdo Ian Halperin’s book–then it’s STATUTORY RAPE. Especially since she was supposedly what? fifteen?

  24. Camille (The Original) says:


    Stupid story.

    • Mikeyangel says:

      Was totally going to say the same thing. BALLS! As a sincere Aniston fan (actually Friends FANatic) Angie has won me over. Love all the good things she does. All Aniston does is vacay in Cabo. Angie does a. Whole lot more good. Love that about her. Also find it weird that Aniston is the mini-van mom majority leader but Angie is the one with six kids. Love her and I don’t care what she did or didn’t do I. Her past. BALLS all the way!

  25. Anne tommy says:

    Not fussed about most of this but Ethan is fab in the before sunrise, before sunset and before midnight trilogy, whatever he may or may not have been doing in the manly parts department.

  26. Meg says:

    I get such a sleazy vibe from ethan hawke-bragging about being with other women because monogamy isn’t natural-what a douchey excuse for cheating. you’re not an animal-youre a civilized human being, who is responsible for his own behavior but is instead blaming it on nature. what a cop out

  27. Barristerette says:

    If she didn’t have an affair with him she would have no reason to feel awkward around Uma. And seriously, Brad is her SO, not her child. Sheesh.

    • I’m not even understanding why this would STILL be something to discuss. Especially since the ONLY reason the tabloids ran a ‘Angelina’s banging two men’ story is because she went to a baseball game with the cast. At some point, the paparazzi took pictures of Angelina talking to Ethan Hawke, and (separately) with Olivier Martinez….then they tried to spin it like she was banging both of them. Because she stood next to them and talked to them at a baseball game.

  28. raincoaster says:

    I have no idea what went down in 2003, but I was working at a Vancouver Starbucks when Ethan Hawke was filming something in Vancouver (gawd, don’t even remember what it was) and every morning he’d be our first customer, bright and early at 6am. In fact, he’d be sitting on the bench outside ten minutes before we unlocked the doors. He’d always buy two lattes. We didn’t recognize him at all, because Main and 14th is not exactly where the celebs tend to hang out; it’s a working class neighborhood. The apartment building next door is full of Filipinos who have ballroom dance classes in the paved lot next door.

    Anyway, we had no idea who this guy was. He was just “That good-looking customer.” When he’d pick up the drinks and leave we’d all rush to the window to see “the bitch” he was bringing the drink to. We were so jealous.

    One day he came in with “the bitch.” Uma Thurman. And the baby. And that woman is incredible in person. Sure, she looks completely different and not so bombshell-y without makeup. She looks tall and elven, really. But she was lovely to us, and their baby was adorable, and none of us evil bitches had the heart to think or say anything bad about her after that. It was just serious “Awwwww” time.

    Anyway, I never get a chance to tell that story. So here it is, however tangential it may be.

  29. peachcobblerby says:

    I don’t believe Jolie is a saint, but she’s better than most celebrities. She isn’t as good a actor than most people say. But she has an incredible humanitarian side that I love.
    I love her pics with Ethan Hawke she looks beautiful, now she’s too bony!

  30. Sway says:

    There is an interview with Angelina on youtube, during the “Taking Lives” promotion, where the interviewer asks her about “pictures of you kissing Ethan” and if you see her genuine reaction – honest-to-God surprise in her eyes – you can clearly see she and Ethan were no more than just friends. She says in that interview “I never deep-kissed Ethan outside the movie, we were probably just saying Hello” and the stupid interviewer is like “But there were pictures of you kissing” – and they showed the pictures… of Angelina kissing Ethan ON THE CHEEK. It was stupid, uncalled for and it showed how skewed Angelina image in the media was and at the same time, how they speculated with all they got – even a harmless kiss on the cheek – that she was a man-eater and a cheater. Ugh.

  31. Ari says:

    I am very glad I am not the only one who enjoyed this movie immensely I always watch it when its on and even sometimes on demand haha

  32. Bunbun says:

    Ugh, all I can say is that Ethan Hawke is a dick.
