Angelina Jolie had a dinner date with The Weeknd in LA, but was it a work thing?

I’m here for Angelina Jolie feeling herself and having something of a Hot Girl Summer, or perhaps a Hot Villainess Summer. It’s been a long time since Angelina has had *fun* drama in her personal life, and now I’m hoping that Jonny Lee Miller and assorted young lovers are all vying for her attention. Young lovers like The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye. Abel and Angelina (portmanteau: Abelina OR The Joliend) were seen out to dinner on Wednesday night in LA:

Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd were snapped exiting celebrity hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles Wednesday night, setting gossip tongues to wagging as to what their night out might have entailed.

After spending hours at the high-end Italian eatery, the pair were sure to leave separately so as to not be photographed together. The 46-year-old Oscar winner wore a black silk dress and trench coat while the “After Hours” singer, 31, kept it simple in a denim look and black boots.

While it’s possible the beauty and mother of six shared a romantic evening with the Toronto artist, the singer, né Abel Tesfaye, is also looking to further his career in Hollywood, meaning the pair could’ve met up for business reasons and nothing more.

“They’re clearly not trying to hide [the dinner date],” a source close to The Weeknd told Page Six. “He’s definitely focused on getting to the movie business. He has the new HBO series he’s starring in.”

Tesfaye — who played a memorable role in Adam Sandler’s “Uncut Gems” and co-wrote an episode of “American Dad” last year — is set to co-write and star in the new HBO series “The Idol,” which he co-created with Reza Fahim and “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson.

Other outlets are saying that it was for-sure romantic, but Page Six’s source definitely makes it sound like it was a work thing. That new HBO series was the first thing that came to mind, because it was literally just announced too – Abel is working with Sam Levinson to develop a drama series called The Idol. The one sentence pitch is: “The series follows a female pop singer who starts a romance with an enigmatic L.A. club owner who is the leader of a secret cult.” Abel is not just co-writing it, but I guess he’ll play the enigmatic cult dude. But is there even a role for Angelina? Or was he just asking for advice? I don’t know. Maybe she just wanted to make Jonny Lee Miller jealous.

    I want Angelina and Jonny Lee Miller together.

  2. girl_ninja says:

    I hope it is a work thing. The Weeknd has issues with women that can easily be assessed in his lyrics. It would be cool to see Angie in a limited T.V. series.

  3. Mina_Esq says:

    I hope it was romantic, not because I want her with him (JLM forever!) but because I want her to have some fun. I want her to go on multiple dates with multiple hot men of all ages and professions. She is Angelina fu**ing Jolie! ASkars, Robert Pattinson, Harry Styles, Channing Tatum, bring them all in for some dinner and drinks.

  4. Justjj says:

    I am all about a Hot Girl Summer for Angelina! I was never impressed by The Weeknd but his last album was so good, I finally got it.

  5. The Artist Formerly Known as Valiantly Varnished says:

    I hope it was romantic. And I hope it was romantic with Johnny too. And I hope she has another hot outing with someone else. Angeline Jolie is Angelina Jolie. She’s a f*cking catch and I want her milkshake to bring ALL the boys to the yard! Our girl deserves to have FUN.

    • Zut Alors says:

      Yes to all the above!!! It’s time for Angelina to realize that she’s more than a mother of six. She’s still a vibrant and interesting woman.

  6. Twin falls says:

    Yes to all of the cheers for AJ having a summer of fun!

  7. what's inside says:

    Angelina has shown herself in the past to be extremely discreet about her romantic life. This has to be about future business enterprises.

  8. Michael says:

    I am almost positive that this was a work or charity meeting. But they did choose to have it in a known celeb hotspot and they knew they would get pap’ed so they are fine with the speculation. If Abel is able to get Angelina to pop up on his HBO show it would be a huge coup for him though. It should be noted that Abel is Ethiopian as is Zahara and both Abel and Agelina have spoken about the violance there and Abel contributed over a million dollars for food assistance so I think that is what they were meeting about

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree, probably business/charity related, but I think she’s probably enjoying being in the press again for something other than her divorce, hence the paparazzi target they went to. And good for her if that’s the case, hopefully she isn’t tied to BP forever in the media.

  9. Lively says:

    Jeez jolie is gorgeous

  10. OriginalLeigh says:

    He mentioned her in the lyrics of one of his songs, Party Monster, a few years ago “lips like Angelina,” so there might be something there? Fun fact: he mentioned his ex-gf, Selena Gomez, in the same song…

    • Carmen AIC says:

      Im pretty sure he meant Selena Quintanilla…Selena Gomez is not really known for having a spectacular derriere.

  11. Christa says:

    The Weeknd must be really charming because he gets women way out of his league in the looks department. I too would like to believe she’s with JLM but who knows what’s true.

  12. Carmen AIC says:

    HA, so Abel was finally able to take Angelina out? I mean, he’s been singing about her since 2016 “Angelina, lips like Angelina” (Party Monster).

  13. Susan says:

    She’s such a model of how to handle all that life throws at you and grow and become better. I love her even more now than I did twenty years ago. She’s…the Gen X woman superhero!

  14. The Recluse says:

    I can see this being a work related meeting. He’s got that new series he’s developing and she is a producer and director, so….the possibilities are there.

  15. mmm says:

    Why isn’t she dating women? And by “women” I mean me.

    Angie, where’s the bisexual solidarity? I’m here for you! lmao

  16. Lupebs says:

    On a completely unrelated note, anyone have any idea on her lip colour?? Pink but not bright. Love it! Does she still work with Guerlain at the moment?
