Angelina Jolie’s son Knox is friends with Jonny Lee Miller’s son, so it was a playdate?

Angelina Jolie and her brood arrive at JFK airport in NYC

For my money, the story of the weekend was Angelina Jolie going over to her ex-husband’s apartment with a bottle of wine. I know people were like “wow, gossip in 2021 is decidedly vintage,” but Jonny Lee Miller and Angelina were in each other’s lives off-and-on for so many years that their story doesn’t feel like it’s part of just one era. Like, JLM and Angelina were a ‘90s story, an ‘00s story and now a ‘20s story. Admittedly, I don’t think they spent tons of time together in the ‘10s, but they were clearly checking in with each other and it’s not some Bennifer-style sh-t. “Sources” close to Angelina told People Magazine that the Jolie-Pitt kids have hung out with JLM’s son as well. Uh-huh.

Angelia Jolie and her brood recently enjoyed all that New York City has to offer. Earlier this week, the 46-year-old actress took part in a trip to the Big Apple with her six children – Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – whom she shares with ex-husband Brad Pitt.

“The kids are growing up and are so close,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They were out to museums and dinner with each other through the trip and had a nice time.”

During the getaway, Jolie was also spotted visiting the apartment building of her ex-husband, Jonny Lee Miller. The exes have remained good friends over the years. The source adds that Miller’s son and Knox are friends and that they were also there the night Jolie was spotted leaving Miller’s place.

The NYC outing between Jolie and her kids came about after she rang in her 46th birthday with them during a celebratory dinner at the Los Angeles restaurant TAO earlier this month.

“They had a great day celebrating at home, and the kids surprised her with a special dinner out,” a source previously told PEOPLE.

JLM’s son Buster is only six months younger than Knox and Vivienne, so I don’t know. Maybe Knox and Buster are friends and maybe Knox and Buster were having a playdate and Angelina just brought a bottle of wine for herself and Jonny? The thing is, Angelina was photographed all over the place in New York. Like, the NY Post was tracking her movements the entire time she was there. She didn’t turn up to JLM’s place with Knox. She was alone, with a bottle of wine. Was Knox already there? Hmmm. Why can’t we just believe that Angelina got some Vitamin D from her ex-husband, who is still very much a hot piece?

    Lol “playdate.” Is that what they’re calling it these days?

  2. MrsBanjo says:

    May be showing my age a bit, but this is reminding me of when JLM was Daisy’s Toyboy in Keeping Up Appearances.

    Good for her. Angelina deserves to have some fun after all the shit Brad’s been pulling.

    • mynameispearl says:

      Did not know JLM was in keeping up appearances! Was he Rose’s toyboy rather than Daisy’s? I cant see Daisy cheating on Onslow.

      • MrsBanjo says:

        No it was Daisy. Onslow wasn’t paying her any attention per usual, so she got a toyboy to make him jealous. She wasn’t actually cheating so much as using him as a prop lol. Onslow was completely baffled.

      • SarahCS says:

        How did I not know this???? Oh my goodness I need to track this down and re-watch it.

        One of my favourite hobbies with Midsomer Murders was spotting the ‘before they were famous’ people (hi Orlando Bloom).

    • Michelle says:

      I remember jonny on his motorbike & in his black leathers. Showing my age as well!

    • Evie says:

      Ha! Funny you should mention that. I recently saw that episode of Keeping Up Appearances here on my local PBS station which reruns all the Britcoms. Jonny Lee-Miller is a teenager, LOL! Here’s a short clip which is pretty funny:

    • tealily says:

      Omg that was him?? Must rewatch, clearly.

  3. Sierra says:

    Lol who cares either way – Johnny is one of the few men in Angelina’s life who hasn’t betrayed her (in public anyways).

    Angelina & Johnny’s ex-wife also shares the same birthday 🤷‍♀️.

    But I would still dig this couple if they turned out to be real.

    • josephine says:

      I would be down for this reunion as well. Seems like everyone is revisiting past loves this year!

  4. Zut Alors says:

    Is this the first time Angelina and the kids have traveled outside California since the pandemic lockdown?

  5. Killfanora says:

    I just love that she shows up with a bottle of wine!

  6. Golly Gee says:

    So considering the pap pics, she was either there by herself, or Knox was already there for a sleepover.
    Unless she was carrying Knox in that big azz handbag of hers…
    I hope she was there for some lovely British vitamin D.

  7. nicegirl says:

    Vitamin D!!! I can’t even, awesome

  8. Tianafora says:

    They are probably just good friends but if there’s anything else going on, good for her, she needs the stress relief.

    He’s someone who’s always been her friend and has never sold her out. Loyal friends are like gold.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Maybe friends is all there is here but the story has resulted in a huge increase of JLM pics so I’m here for it!

  9. Amanda says:

    I’m dying at Vitamin D! I hope she got some as well, haha. And as other have already echoed, Jonny has never sold her out and has only ever had good things to say about her which puts him miles ahead of her other exes. Good lord I can’t believe how badly I want this to happen, lol.

  10. rawiya says:

    I love her. I love him. I loved them in Hackers. I hope she takes him to Red Lobster.*

    *(let me know when you get the reference!)

    • outofthecloset says:

      This just reminds me of Santino yelling “Andre! Andre!” in the voice of Tim Gunn.

      I got the Beyonce reference too, but the other one makes me laugh harder.

  11. Greta says:

    Knox probably really was there, either there already for a playdate or she arrived with him, but left out of the frame if he arrived with her. Something seriously shady is going on with all the pap pictures carried exclusively by page 6. They were tracking her the whole week and bought all the pictures, that’s very strange. Page 6 bought the pictures exclusively, and then had nasty write ups to go with the pictures, had misleading information and dates too. The odd thing is they seem to have cut out some of the kids from their pap pictures, which wouldn’t be noticeable if they didn’t then harp on about Angelina being alone, and without the kids on her outings. The kids were right there, they just cut them out of the pics then lied about it.

    Now pap pics are emerging of Angelina from other places, of her out with some of her kids. She also seems to have ditched her security later in the week? The pap pics are of her getting into and out of cabs, Angelina’s security always drives her around when she’s in New York, she’s never without them. The same security team she shares with her ex. It’s just strange to me that page 6 with their very distinct anti Angelina stance would track her, then buy up pictures of her in New York, while being very nasty about her.

    • Golly Gee says:

      How do you know the kids have been cut out of the pictures? Definitely shady if that’s the case. But I agree with you about Page Six coverage. They are using this story is the hook and then filling the rest of the story with pro-Brad divorce court propaganda.

  12. Lively says:

    Here for Angie and JLM, but there’s a chance there are at least FWB. He seems to be a loyal friend of hers.

    And Brad stop trying to ruin this for us, please stop sending people mag nonsense tips pretending to be a close source of AJ

    • Myra says:

      FWB is a great tentative step into dating if you’ve come out of a longterm relationship broken and emotionally exhausted. Plus she once said that she has lovers but doesn’t do one night stands so it won’t be surprising that she would go back to something familiar.

  13. Courtney B says:

    I so ship this and did when she so,it from BBT too. He’s always been so supportive of her. He and his wife came out for her directorial debut. She’s said before, albeit years ago, that divorcing him was the dumbest thing she ever did. Maybe it’ll be a case of ‘ too young the first time, just right years later’. He just always seems to have really gotten her and loved her with all the quirks.

  14. wals says:

    he seems like a nice guy. Whether romantic or not, it’s good to have people you can rely on in life.

    As an aside, I know this is extremely shallow but his head is so weird,

  15. Mina_Esq says:

    You are right, it feels more genuine than Bennifer. They had stayed friends. I want this for her. She can trust him, and it’s obvious that they have a genuine connection. Also re pics- i love the one where Ange is holding all of the kids’ passports and tickets lol She is such a mom!

  16. NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

    Whether it’s friendship or romantic, I’m glad Angie is putting energy into something other than just the kids.

  17. Kay says:

    Very risky to go to someone’s apartment during a pandemic. Hope everyone gets tested for COVID.

    • Zut Alors says:

      Riskier than all the places they visited whilst out and about in New York? Girl, why are you so bent out of shape over this harmless piece of gossip? Just chill and enjoy it like the rest of us.

      • Tanguerita says:

        plus, they are probably all vaccinated by now. I do get the urge to stay inside forever, but at some point people just need to relax, seriously.

      • Kay says:

        They are wearing masks when out and about. COVID stays in the air for hours – being indoors in a small apartment that has no ventilation and not wearing masks is dangerous. Children are not vaccinated – and people suffer from long COVID. At home they are fine they live in a mansion with a massive garden. The vaccine is less effective against the new Delta variant and cases are rising across the world.

      • Zut Alors says:

        @Kay
        Have you been inside JIM’S apartment? What makes you think it’s small and not properly ventilated? Angie has on a mask in the pic at his apt building. It’s very nice that you’re so solicitous of their health, but you need to make like Frozen and let it go.

      • Kay says:

        Lots of schools, offices and properties are not ventilated to protect against COVID. Many people have died and many people have not been able to travel to see their families. People are making sacrifices to protect themselves and other people to stop the spread of the virus. There are emerging mutations that undermine the vaccines effectiveness and poorer countries are still waiting for vaccines and support.

    • lucy2 says:

      For sure they’re all been vaccinated. NYC is starting to open back up a lot, cases are way way down, I don’t think it’s that risky now.
