Apparently, the Mr. and Mrs. Smith super couple are caught in a net of rumours. A web of baseless hearsay has been woven around the A-list couple, and their private sphere has been invaded. Angelina Jolie has been cast as the insecure wife and the villain in the sham, while Brad Pitt plays the role of the unfaithful husband with the French actress Marion Cotillard featuring in the role of the mistress.
Rumors have it that Brangelina are on the brink of separation, and they would file for divorce before the end of this year. If rumors are to be believed, Brad Pitt is having an affair with his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard, whom he met on the set of the film.
Reportedly Angelina Jolie is jealous of Cotillard, and because history repeats itself Brad Pitt would divorce the Salt actress like he divorced the Friends star Jennifer Aniston years ago, when he met Angelina Jolie during the filming of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and fell in love with her.
The trailer of Allied has been released and is getting positive reviews from the critics. Set in the backdrop of the World War II, the film revolves around two spies (Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt) who are romantically involved until one of them turns out to be a double agent and their relationship gets complicated.
Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard are allegedly having a fling both on-screen as well as off-screen and not only were they hooking up when not shooting, but also were seen sharing a kiss in public.
Allied is being compared to the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie starred film By the Sea, which is also set during the World War II, but was mocked by the critics and termed as the ”worst film” of their careers.
While an Oscar might be on Brad Pitt’s cards for his role in Allied, co-star and alleged lover Marion Cotillard has already bagged an Oscar for best actress for her role in La Vie en Rose in 2007. Angelina Jolie is yet to win an Oscar for best actress, albeit she has already received a Golden Globe for best supporting actress for her role in Girl Interrupted, which adds fuel to fire and makes Jolie insecure.
According to unverified speculations, Jolie’s career has taken a backseat after the much acclaimed Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but this allegation does not adhere to any truth. Her performances in the Kung Fu Panda franchise, Maleficent, Wanted and Unbroken, and her directorial debut was critically praised and received accolades.
Reportedly, Jolie always desired to play the kind of role that Cotillard is portraying in Allied, nevertheless the Changeling actress has Maleficent 2 and First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers up her sleeve. She was also rumored to star in Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express, which was later refuted.
Amidst the rumors of marital trouble of the couple, another fabrication that did rounds was that Angelina Jolie would hold the post of visiting lecturer at the Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. But this rumor was later debunked by the Gossip Cop. The mother of six is satisfied teaching at the London School of Economics as a visiting faculty. She shares her knowledge in lectures, workshops and focuses research on women, peace, and security.
The 41-year-old actress and her husband want to adopt another orphaned child, this time a 10-year old or older so that he or she can mix in well with their six children, whose ages range from 8 to 14. Jolie feels that people only adopt babies when there are so many worthy deserving children, and by adopting an older kid people will come to realize how older orphans are overlooked.
While Pitt’s infidelity rumors were in the air, Jolie, like the hip-hop star Jaden Smith fell prey to a viral suicide hoax. A video footage allegedly from the credible source CNN was circulating on the internet, in which Jolie was seen bidding ‘goodbye’ to her fans and Brad Pitt before committing suicide.
But the video turned out to be a click-bait, meaning that when the video would be clicked on it would be directed to a website where the watcher would be asked to give his or her personal details, thereby gaining the access to the person’s device and data. The video went viral, and this created a nail-biting situation for Jolie’s anxious fans.
