Angelina Jolie & Jonny Lee Miller went to dinner last night in Beverly Hills


Back in June, Angelina Jolie was in New York with her kids. I think the trip was for business and pleasure – she had meetings, but she also went to art galleries and she was seen out in the city, looking relaxed and unbothered. Paparazzi also got photos of Jolie repeatedly visiting Jonny Lee Miller’s apartment. While JLM is British, he’s been New York-based for years, and he and his ex-wife Michele Hicks are raising their son in the city. JLM and Jolie have always maintained a nice relationship following their ‘90s marriage and divorce, and I was super-excited at the idea that they might be happening again.

Then months passed after their NYC reunion. Angelina was seen out with The Weeknd, and Jonny went to Europe to film The Crown, where he’s playing John Major in Season 5. But maybe JLM has wrapped on The Crown, because he was magically in LA this week, and he and Angelina were seen out last night:

Angelina Jolie has once again been spotted with her ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller. The former couple were pictured enjoying a dinner date together on Monday night in Beverly Hills, California.

The Maleficent star – who is still battling through her bitter divorce saga with ex Brad Pitt – was dressed in a chic black coat and heels as she exited in Miller’s car before the pair drove off together.

[From The Daily Mail]

Again, I’m pretty sure JLM is New York-based at this point. I’m sure he has friends and work connections in LA, but it feels like he wouldn’t be in LA without a specific objective. Is that objective “win back Angelina”?? Please, this would be BETTER than the Bennifer revival to me. I’ve been waiting my entire adult life for JLM and Angelina to get back together. God, they’re such a hot couple. Who will be her date to The Eternals premiere?!?

    Speaking of The Crown, have you seen new pics of Elizabeth Debicky as Diana. Holy cow!

  2. Oliphant says:

    Ooh the blond? Honey? highlights on her look spectacular! I wish they’d gone with a better wig for eternals, they really did her dirty there, considering how insanely good she looks here.

    • Kaykay says:

      All the blonde wigs on her have all been horrible or close to it. Salt, By the Sea – super bad. Life or Something Like It and Eternals might be the best ones. I think the color in the pictures above is her real color and that’s why it suits her so well.

  3. Fuzzy Crocodile says:

    I’m am not up on my gossip history.

    Why did they split the first time?

    • Snuffles says:

      I think they were both just too young and impetuous to make it work.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        Exactly. I’m glad to see they are good friends now. Maybe AJ just appreciates having a friend and confidante that she can trust, someone who knows her personally over her lifetime and who understands her.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Didn’t they marry as teenagers? They were an adorable couple and it seemed like they stayed good friends, but they split for the reasons 20 years olds break up, right? Nothing acrimonious. And it seems plausible that this is the right time in their lives to reconnect.

      • Myjobistoprincess says:

        People you’ve known before the time you were the “you now” are the best people. They understand where you’re from and who you are before everything happened, and you can be you.

    • Kay says:

      She was having a relationship with her female co-star.

      • BABSORIG says:

        I wish Angelina Jolie happiness and tranquility, she deserves it, and I mean it from the bottom of my heart. I hope when she starts dating again, she goes out with someone that really loves her and she them. I don’t think her and Brad Pitt ever loved each other. I think they loved the idea of being with each other but they never really were in love with each other. I think both her and Brad Pitt each loved themselves more that they really loved each other, but that’s just a personal opinion of mine.

      • sunhine says:

        @Kay Are you talking about Jenny Shimizu? Jenny talked about it in one of her books. They had some type of arrangement because she said jlm was also messing around with one of her girlfriends.

        @BABSORIG I agree to a certain point. I think AJ and Brad loved each other in the beginning but their image/brand became too important so the relationship got sidelined. It reminds me of Beyoncé and Jay-z.

      • Coco says:


        I’m not sure how you can “relationship got sidelined”. When he was abusive to and hit their oldest son, it sounds like your down playing the abuse that was going on. As some kind of vanity project.

      • alycea says:


        I agree. I am don’t like the way people minimize his addiction or the domestic violence incident at all. While I am sure being in the spotlight was no help, the relationship was “sidelined” because of his addiction and abuse.

      • dj says:

        Let’s also factor in his Narcissism for his Stardom/Profession. Addiction, Domestic Violence/Abuse and Narcissism that makes for a very crowded marriage and I have not even factored in AJ or the children.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Question, who hear was wishing for BOOBS from the BOOB fairy? Anyone?
      Well, who ever you are, would you please pray for a Anji-John making it together wish?!?!!!

      I would be a little happier each and every day!!

    • lulu says:

      Although Jonny Lee Miller relocated to LA to build a home with his new wife, Angelina Jolie, settling down didn’t suit the eccentric actress. “You’re suddenly somebody’s wife. And you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m half of a couple now. I’ve lost me,'” she confessed at the time. When they split, Miller moved back to London and that was that. Jolie took responsibility for the dissolution of their relationship, acknowledging in an interview with the Calgary Sun that she struggled to be “present enough, physically or emotionally, in relationships to get serious.” The Oscar-winning actress admitted to being a workaholic, which doesn’t leave much time for the other person. However, Jolie also made it clear, “Jonny and I never fought and we never hurt each other. I really wanted to be his wife. I really wanted to commit.” 

  4. Sierra says:

    Hell ya, I dig this reunion

  5. Michael says:

    Angelina brings all the boys to the yard. Still. I am sure she is enjoying herself these days.

  6. B says:

    He drove her home and not a chauffeur? Ok they’re dating.

    • Bettyrose says:

      That was my reaction too. They didn’t meet at a restaurant. They came and left together. Friends do that, sure, but these two aren’t fools. They know perfectly well that a public appearance will start the rumor mill so it seems like a deliberate statement.

      • Sierra says:

        I am all in for this since Johnny is the one ex who never betrayed Angie. I have never seen him talk to the media about their relationship and they maintained a 20 year old friendship.

        Sometimes second time around is the correct timing.

      • Kay says:

        It’s not second time round he’s been around like forever, he was one of the people she was seeing before Brad and after Val Kilmer- when she was having a few relationships at the same time.

      • sassafras says:

        Right? No one knows how to travel & go out w/o paps like Angelina. She does everything on her own terms.

      • Elizabeth says:

        Kay…don’t think she was ever with Val Kilmer & don’t remember her juggling a few relationships at a time.

      • Kay says:

        Val Kilmer had a relationship with her – he wrote it in his book recently when they were filming Alexander. He wanted to buy her a plane. Look it up.

    • Kay says:

      She said it in an interview – FACT – she was seeing a few people at the same time

      • Kay says:

        Val Kilmer had a relationship with her – he wrote it in his book recently when they were filming Alexander. He wanted to buy her a plane. Look it up.

      • Kay says:

        Ryan Seacrest interview with AJ

      • Coco says:

        He said they had a fling which is not a relationship. Also just because he wrote it in a book doesn’t make is true. Moby wrote about having a thing with Natalie Portman which turned out to be a lie.

        So I wouldn’t take one sided stories as truth. See people is not a relationship.

      • Emily H says:

        I think Angelina is a fascinating woman and your comment got me thinking about the pre-Brad Angelina. The version of herself where she was different, more wild. I do recall her talking about having lovers when she split from BBT and while Mad was still very little. She did say that she had two lovers, wonder who they were?

        For you fans, this 2005 Vanity Fair article is so worth the read. It’s so open and honest and just shows how interesting she was/is.

  7. Zut Alors says:

    Woo-hoo 😊. I am just glad that Angelina seems to be in a good place now and enjoy her life again.

  8. SarahCS says:

    Oh man I would love for this to be a thing. I love them both as individuals and they would be amazing back together. I won’t get my hopes up as I get the feeling they have a great relationship as friends but I can hope.

    Although I have serious concerns that watching him play John Major may kill my attraction to him.

    Right, I’m watching Hackers tonight.

    • sassafras says:

      Well I still have the hots for Gillian Anderson after her Crown role so you might be okay…. lol

  9. Chaine says:

    Good for them but they were not major media stars the last time around so it just doesn’t have the same awesomeness as Bennifer 2.0.

  10. Noki says:

    That picture of the two of them looks like it was during the early Brangelina era.

    • Toniko says:

      Yeah, that pic was taken on September 20 in 2005. She’s pregnant with Shiloh already.

    • Emily H says:

      Yes, in the 2005 photos Angelina was just stunningly beautiful – she has a softness to her face that is not there now. Age gets us all – “time and tide wait for no man.” And maybe the hysterectomy and early menopause plays a part in that as well. Surely the shift in hormones affects the skin, hair, etc. She is still beautiful, but lacks the glow and softness of youth (as we all do in our 40s).

      Jonny Lee Miller is just very blah to me. She needs someone with some pizazz or maybe a non-actor that’s a successful politician, businessman, etc. That seems like a good fit for her – with her interests these days. Like a Justin Trudeau type guy.

      • sunhine says:

        Aww I JLM but I see what you mean. I thought she would go for a politician type too since that’s the department she spends most of her time doing

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Emily H, wow, that’s an interesting coupling! I never thought of her with a non-actor. But that would be a dynamic and powerful coupling!!

        I just hope that Angelina finds her happiness and joy soon so that she can move on and continue her path in life!

      • Kay says:

        Surely a lawyer – she’s been around them for years now.

  11. Rae says:

    I’m here for this.

  12. Maria from Tercer mundo says:

    I’m not lying if I say this will be the best news of my year. So please God, make it happens lol
    Too good to be true

    • rawiya says:

      I legit just posted the same thing, without having read your comment first, Maria!! I love it.

  13. #facts says:

    Well certainly they aren’t Bennifer and thank God. Nor is he Pitt. He has a boyish charm and genuine sweetness that is not indicative to Pitt.
    Just from his Instagram posts about his son is the different .
    I have yet to hear Pitt say anything warm or just fatherly about his kids .

  14. Kay says:

    He looks like he has dyed his hair in the recent photos, must be ready to make an appearance at the Eternals premiere. I really thought she would be dating someone who wasn’t an actor this time she always makes the same mistakes again and again. I think he’s the one who has always been chasing Angelina like forever.

  15. rawiya says:

    The “yessssssss” I let out! I’ve been so good this year. I deserve this! I truly do.

  16. Abby says:

    I know nothing about him, but he seems like he has a sweet face and I find him really handsome.

    Whatever the case, I wish AJ so much happiness in life and relationships!

    • BeanieBean says:

      He was in the American version of Sherlock with Lucy Liu & in the Trainspotting movies. That’s all I know.

  17. Jenny says:

    Oh hey. Where did my comment go? I just said she was smouldering when she was out with the Weekend. Surely that didn’t offend anyones sensibilities?

  18. Kay says:

    I don’t think Angelina has ever needed to chase men/women they always came after her. I wish she would be more selective and not just give in. I was hoping Salma Hayek would find a great hunky guy for her. JLM is just not attractive.

    • AmelieOriginal says:

      I actually find JLM attractive in these pictures. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I never found Brad Pitt to be that attractive. I could understand why people did, but he was too pretty for me if that makes any sense. Just a very generic looking California surfer dude. For the longest time, he just looked like an overgrown high school all-American jock to me.

      • Bea says:

        Same Amelie! I’ve had a huge crush on JLM for years, while Brad has never done anything for me, even on his prime days.

        I do think JLM is one of those guys that become attractive because they are so charming, so you have to see him on video, or on interviews to get the attraction.

    • ennie says:

      Salma didn’t always go for hunky typical handsome for herself either, that I can think of.
      I guess Angelina goes for the trust she has on JLM.

    • Kay says:

      Salma knows lots of people – she went for a billionaire. Angelina has the upper hand she has more money and power.

      • Kay says:

        Angelina has the upper hand over JLM she has more money and power – he has to play be her rules and put up with them.

    • sassafras says:

      Eh. Salma got herself a rich older French billionaire. Hunky disappears. LVMH money is forever….

    • Zut Alors says:

      She married the archetype of the ‘hunky guy’ and he turned out to be a deplorable. She should date whomever she pleases and pleases her.

  19. Emily says:

    Living for all these reunion couples.

  20. Sunshine says:

    I’m going to burst the bubble.
    He’s the “break” man. The one she goes to until she gets the one she wants. He’s too boring for her; otherwise she would have locked him down a long time ago.

    • Hell Nah! says:

      @Sunshine: I like your analysis here.

      That is, I think you’re more right than wrong.

    • alycea says:

      You know he does have a say in this…..He had a girlfriend last year (maybe longer based on their ig comments). It sounds like she’s the one who had to wait this time around.

  21. Myjobistoprincess says:

    Angelina is probably not happy with the gossip about her and the Weeknd. She is having JLM cut this sh*t. No offense to the Weeknd, but this is the subtle way to say – i’m not dating him. If she didnt want to get seen with JLM, she wouldnt be seen. JLM is the safest way for her to stop people from speculating, and she doesnt mind the gossip on JLM, because whatever is between those 2, they’re fine with it.

    • Coco says:

      She didn’t need JLM to stop any Weekend rumors. It was announced last week that the Weekend joined the UN as a Food program me Goodwill Ambassador and working with WFP relief in Ethiopia . Like some on here said they probably were doing.

    • lucy2 says:

      My guess is she’s quite enjoying the rumors about both guys, even if they’re just friends/colleagues. She’s probably trying to get her mojo back after a long, bad relationship and a never ending divorce, and I would imagine her being spotted out with various guys probably irks Pitt, who can’t get any traction on dating rumors for himself. Good for her!

      My other guess is JLM was in town for business, and as they’re good friends, they went to dinner together.

      • Golly Gee says:

        I too get the impression that she’s beginning to unwind and putting herself— views and personality out there more often.

  22. forgotuser12 says:

    They’ve been friends for years, so I don’t think this is anything romantic. I just don’t see what the hype is about when AJ fans fawn over them potentially being together, he’s so boring to me. I agree with the poster above that said he’s the “break man”.

    • Kay says:

      From all her travelling and meeting people and this is what she ends up with. Disappointment

      • Kaykay says:

        Whether they are just friends or if they are actually dating, JLM is someone familiar and safe that she can connect with. Aiming for someone with status and star/power is probably a “been there done that”. With all her luggage I understand it might be scary to open up to someone new, and instead choose to go with safe-old.

  23. alycea says:


  24. Eleonor says:

    I ship this.
    He is the best of her husbands.

  25. MarJo says:

    They were so cute together in Hackers… that’s all I’ve got. 🙂

  26. OriginalCarol says:

    If Pitt is the standard to go by, as the lowest bar set, then anyone is better for her as in casual flings or something.

  27. Isabella says:

    Those are old photos, right? I don’t think there are shots from a recent reunion. And Angie seldom dresses in light colors now.

  28. Kay says:

    Wasn’t one of the men she was seeing was Ralph Fiennes too

  29. Kay says:

    I would never advise a woman to have a relationship with a man who has dumped her numerous times. Yes AJ has helped his career so there is a benefit to JLM – see what work she will get him now.

  30. #facts says:

    @Kay your a troll. JLM has never dumped Jolie and to say she has been with all these men including Val Kilmer us mislead and a lie. Val was infatuated with her, did everything he could to bed her. Sadly as much as I and other want to skanktify her she doesn’t Lay down easy. Pitt had to work hard for it.

    • Coco says:

      I’ve been wondering about that too. Only because they keep repeating the same thing over and again on this post and in other post about AJ and JLM. They also seem to take any rumored relationship as fact even one’s that both parties have said it never happened.

      Their tone seems to be very slut-shaming too. They might not mean it that way, but that’s how they come off to me.

  31. Kay says:

    I don’t think I made myself clear. Val Kilmer published in his book about relationships with actresses he had – including Angelina. Only they know the truth – and she hasn’t denied it. I didn’t realise I published this twice – that was an accident. I wouldn’t advice a woman or a man to go back into a relationship when they have been dumped numerous times. I know JLM did not dump AJ – she dumped him. She gave an interview with Ryan Seacrest about having relationships with other people. (watch the interview) there was speculations about the different people. I was hoping that Angelina had moved forward not backwards and definitely not another actor.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      @Kay, you may need to share what page of his book he discusses his “relationship” with Angelina. I’m aware a number of tabloids twisted the story. This is what People had to say about it. Doesn’t sound like a relationship.
      Watched the 2004 Seacrest interview. She talked about agreements she had with people she’s known for a long time. I don’t know if JLM was one of them. Names were not mentioned. But she did speak of him fondly. Seacrest asked her about Leto & Colin Farrel headlines later and she said no. The National Enquirer started the Fiennes rumor.

      I like JLM and don’t see him as any kind of downgrade.

  32. #facts says:

    Again Kay is trolling. This is the reason well one why Angelina has sooooo many rumors attached to her.

  33. Kay says:

    Sadly after that interview she gave there were all sorts of rumours that started.
