Angelina Jolie met a young British actor who has her face tattooed on his arm

This is one of the flat-out cutest stories ever. So, you know how Angelina Jolie is an icon? It’s true. She’s such an icon that young actors feel the need to get arm tattoos of her face. So it was for Alex Thomas Smith, the 22-year-old British actor currently working in the West End production of Dear Evan Hansen. Alex has a lovely tattoo of Angelina’s face on his left bicep. Then… Angelina came to the West End to see the musical, and she met Alex. She was so pleased to meet him! And she signed his arm, and he’s now going to get her autograph tattooed on him too.

Angelina Jolie has had a lasting impact on at least one fan. On Saturday, the actress attended a production of Dear Evan Hansen in London’s West End and met with members of cast following the show. One of the actors was particularly excited about getting the chance to say hi to the star.

“Today in WHAT IS MY LIFE, the beautiful Angelina Jolie came to Dear Evan Hansen,” Alex Thomas Smith, a standby for Evan Hansen and Jared in the London production of the popular musical shared on Instagram. Smith revealed that he was a huge fan of the Maleficent star, and even had a tattoo of her face on his arm.

Jolie, 44, autographed his arm below the tattoo, which features the actress smoking a cigarette, and many followers flooded Smith’s comments to tell him to get the signature tattooed. The young actor responded in the comments, “That’s the plan!!!!”

This is so iconic! I’m curious about what led to Alex getting a Jolie tattoo though – do you think he was merely a huge Jolie stan, or did he think her face would look great on his arm or what? Anyway, I love that Angelina checked out this musical and that she made a new friend.

    I think it was cute and Ms Jolie is admirable on many levels. She is so sweet and kind. The most non HW superstar to walk the earth.

  2. Sierra says:

    Haha cute and yes, Angelina is an icon and will become even bigger after next year’s Eternal release.

    A whole new “nerd” generation will become her fans.

      I kind of worry about the Eternals. I think everyone would love for it to be a big deal… but superhero movie fatigue is getting real. And from my understanding there was already a miniseries done by Neil Gaiman, and it didn’t do well. I just don’t think the hype is there in the same way as all the other superhero movie franchises.

      I don’t know. I do hope it does well. But I just don’t see it being the success that some people think it will.

      • Sierra says:

        I think people will come out to see Eternals just to see what the next phase is going to be.

        Apparently Kevin showed some of the scenes in Brazil over the weekend and people seemed to really like it.

    I love her face in this picture. She looks unguarded.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      That’s exactly the first thing I got. She looks amazingly real and in the moment. Bravo.

  4. Mary-Jo says:

    That last pic with her back tattoos is incredible.

    • I'm With The Band says:

      As a tattoed person myself, I have to say that she’s the only person I’ve ever seen who can make tattoos look elegant and glamorous.

  5. Ali says:

    If there ever was a face worthy of a tattoo, it would be hers because under those cheekbones lives a kind soul.

    My signature is an A with a scribble, too!

  6. Lona says:

    She looks bad

    • joanne says:

      I would love to look as “bad” as her if only in my dreams. What world do you live in that she looks bad?

      • L. says:

        That’s a br*d p*tt stan. They’ve been going around saying she looks bad here because they’re bitter and angry for no reason at a cute fan story.

    • say what says:

      Why don’t his stans go revel in the fact that he and Aniston will be at the GG’s this year creating some fandom sic hope that these two media w***es will reunite. It is the most idiotic thing in the history of HW. They both play into that narrative for attention and its sad. He or she wants to be with each other but will ride that wave until they die. ROTFL

  7. Charfromdarock says:

    By what possible metric could Angelina look bad?

    It’s a cute story! Despite all her fame and glamour she still seems so connected to people.

  8. Texas says:

    I think she is so beautiful always. But as we age, I think we look a little better with a little more meat on our bones. I could use a little less! But I do always think she is so thin. Same with Nicole Kidman.

    But beautiful? Yes. Classy? Yes. Kind? Absolutely yes!

    • Sierra says:

      I agree, I think once menopause really kicks in for Angelina, she will gain more weight and look absolutely stunning.

      • BellaBella says:

        I think Angelina had instant menopause because of her hysterectomy. That’s what happens. She’s just got good being-skinny genes.

  9. Fiona says:

    This photo seems so genuine, I love it!

  10. sammiches says:

    Is this guy REALLY 22?? He looks so young!!

    At first I thought this was a picture of Laura Linney.
