Brad Pitt “Jealous Rage” Over Angelina Jolie and Japanese Rock Star Miyavi?
“Brad Pitt is in a jealous rage over Angelina Jolie wooing a sexy Japanese rock star to play the villain in her new film — because the tattooed music man looks a LOT like Angie’s former lesbian lover!” declares the National Enquirer, which continues to embarrass itself with outrageously wrong reporting on Jolie.
The clueless tabloid’s latest bad stunt concerns Jolie’s casting Miyavi (real name Takamasa Ishihara) as sadistic prison guard Mutsuhiro Watanabe in the upcoming Unbroken. “Angelina was absolutely hypnotized by Miyavi’s haunting audition for the film,” a so-called “source” tells the Enquirer, which adds that Jolie “couldn’t stop talking about the gender-bending rocker, who loves to wear makeup.”
And why is this a problem for Pitt? According to the tabloid’s tipster, “Miyavi bears a striking resemblance to Angie’s former lesbian lover Jenny Shimizu — and that fact wasn’t lost on Brad.” Never mind that Miyavi is married with children. Never mind that Jolie and Pitt have been together for almost a decade and have children. The Japanese musician’s resemblance to Shimizu, whom Jolie hooked up with nearly 20 years ago, is supposedly freaking out Pitt?
This is ABSURD. “Angie told Brad that she’d probably have to spend a lot of time coaching Miyavi because he’s never had a major Hollywood role before,” says the Enquirer source. “That sent Brad over the edge. He’s halfway around the world in England while Angie’s reading lines with this sexy Asian rocker.” Enough. The Enquirer is trying to create controversy out of nothing. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the story is “totally false.”
