L&S: Angelina Jolie is probably (not) moving on with edgy Justin Theroux

This story is so dumb, but I can’t help myself. For years, we had to deal with the Uncool Bermuda Triangle of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston. Those three were locked in a macabre tabloid dance for years, even after Jennifer fake-married Justin Theroux. If anything, Justin became a perfect supporting character to the Triangle of Doom, because he was either cast as the (fake) husband who got mad about Jennifer’s residual feelings for Brad, or Justin was mad at Brad for, like, existing. The reality of it is that Jennifer and Justin had their thing and they both got what they wanted out of it – Jen was no longer Forever Aloneiston and Justin got signed to CAA and suddenly he was a “leading man” or something. Meanwhile, Brad and Angelina are still in the process of divorcing and it’s still really dirty and awful.

So I guess the tabloids were tired of trying to convince people that Jen and Brad had quietly gotten back together, so they were like, “hey, let’s try the other combo.” Yes, Justin Theroux and Angelina Jolie have reportedly met one-on-one and maybe something is (definitely not) happening.

Call her Mrs. Steal Your Man! Angelina Jolie is considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, so it seems like she could literally have any man she wanted — but why does it seem like she’s obsessed with Jennifer Aniston’s sloppy seconds? Sources exclusively revealed to Life & Style that Angelina is finally ready to date again her divorce from ex-husband Brad Pitt, and she’s moving on with Jen’s second ex-husband, Justin Theroux.

“Word is they’ve quietly gone out a bunch of times since late summer, and the out-of-left-field relationship is sure to shock everyone, especially Jen,” reveals a source. “Pals think they’re really starting to develop feelings for each other.”

Sources previously revealed to Life & Style that there was an instant spark between Angelina and Justin, 47, after they met at Justin’s favorite NYC restaurant in August on the pretense of discussing a possible movie role. The insider said Angie went with the intentions to try to prove that she wasn’t the villain that she was painted out to be for so long, but they ended up hitting it off. They realized they both had a lot in common — they both like to wear black and have an affinity for tattoos — and they ended their night with a hug and a kiss as they said goodbye.

“Since that night, their relationship has only grown in momentum and intensity,” the insider claims. “Friends wouldn’t be surprised if they’re sending steamy texts and having secret sleepovers.”

If all it took was “they both like to wear black and have an affinity for tattoos” then Angelina would be dating every random goth or punk person out there. That being said, Justin and Angelina have always had a lot in common. They’ve often worn similar jewelry, they have similar styles, and I bet they have similar taste in art and culture too. But Angelina wouldn’t go there, let’s be real. And I doubt Justin would go there – there was probably some kind of clause in his fake marriage contract about “Fake Husband JT Will Never Say One Kind Word About Ms. Angelina Jolie.”

Last thing: it’s pretty clear that Justin is dating or hooking up with actress Laura Harrier these days, just FYI. I mean, he’s probably dating a few women at a time (because midlife crisis), but Laura and Justin have been hanging out a lot over the past four months or so.

    I love this, it’s so dumb! Angelina with Justin, then Jennifer could date Johnny Lee Miller or Billy Bob Thornton. Then Brad could date Courtney Cox or a friend of Angelina’s , it could just go round and round!

    • whatWHAT? says:

      “I love this, it’s so dumb!” was my reaction to this, too.

      the write up is so high-school-gossip-column (L&S, not Celebitchy).

      frankly, I would bet that Jolie doesn’t think much of Theroux, if she ever had thought about him at all.

      • Esmerelda says:

        The “sloppy seconds” line is hilarious, poor EdgeLord… if this were even remotely true I’m sure he would love the exposure, though

      • Trashaddict says:

        Yes, I like to think that Angeline’s standards wouldn’t allow for Justin anywhere near her kids or her pants.

    • Go Figure! says:

      ROTFLMAO! Is this the best they can do? You know they’re desperate when they come out with this sh*t. SMDH!

  3. vexa says:

    Fingers crossed this is all leading up to a tabloid story in which Angelina and Jen realise that their years of animosity were just a way of denying their true feelings… for each other.

  4. JRenee says:

    No, no, no

  5. minx says:

    Anything to make Angelina look bad 🙄. I really doubt she is “obsessed” with JT, but there are those who will latch onto this.

  6. BB says:

    Lol my favorite part is that she went with intentions to prove that she wasn’t the villain she was made out to be. Prove to who? Justin Theroux? Like she gives a flying f*** if he thinks she’s a villain?

  7. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    You know what I want? I want photos of Jen and Angelina hanging out drinking wine together and laughing. That would throw EVERYONE for a loop and would certainly null and void the whole Jen is a victim and Angelina is a villain narrative. And Brad would have a tantrum because his PR wouldn’t know how to spin it. That’s what I want for Christmas. And I dont even celebrate the holiday.

  8. Maya says:

    Snort – the gossip world still lives in Angelina’s past.

    Justin would have been her type 15-16 years ago, before her adopting Maddox.

    The gossip world just cannot accept the fact that Angelina grew up and out of her wild says in her mid 20s.

    • Erinn says:

      I mean, I guess. But that’s giving him more edgy credit than he has, I think. I think he’s more like ‘safe’ edgy. Dad edgy. It’s not like he’s some actual bad-boy rebel guy. He’s just kind of an angsty, artsy who likes art and music, and living on the east coast. Doesn’t mean that he’d want to settle down or anything, but I don’t see him as being some wild guy either.

  9. lucy2 says:

    That is hilarious. So L&S wants us to believe those two went to a NYC restaurant together, and NO ONE snapped a pic with their phone? Sure.

    Since JT got thrown into the Jolie/Pitt/Aniston gossip soup, I suppose next week’s random story will be that Justin and Brad have fallen in love and are adopting. Either that or Brad is running out of his house crying again.

  10. anp says:

    Today Angelina is in South Korea living her life. Angelina and Justin do not even know each other.

  11. AD says:

    Life & Style sell fake stories, lies, lies, & I’m sure some people fall for it! Don’t!

  12. Sidewithkids says:

    Angie living her best life. She in South Korea chillin’. People put her in all these rumors/gossip so they can get the hits. Nothing to see here folks.

    • Hmmm says:

      She’s touring universities in South Korea with her son. I remember people on this site said he wasn’t getting a good education and would live off of Angie for the rest of his life. Lmao

      If they payed any attention to AJ they would know she’s setting her kids up to be educated and indepedent. I’m sure one or two will end up going into Hollyweird tho.

  13. Deedee says:

    I hope it’s true. Besides, Justin doesn’t look like he’s into whoever that is walking behind him.

  14. BB says:

    Right? He hasn’t been seen with anyone over the age of 28 since his break up. Jolie is over the hill compared to his company of late. It is one pathetic mid-life crisis he’s in the middle of!
