Ellen DeGeneres is NOT executive producing a movie about transgender children, despite a tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this rumor. We’re told there’s no truth to it.

According to Life & Style, DeGeneres is supposedly teaming up with Angelina Jolie for a film about transgender kids. The tabloid claims DeGeneres will executive produce, and Jolie has signed on as the main consultant. “The magazine says Jolie “called Ellen, [who] read the script and literally volunteered right there on the spot.”

The tabloid further alleges that Jolie had personal reasons for wanting to do the project. “Angelina wants to show her own children that people shouldn’t hide their true selves and should revel in their own individuality. No matter what path they decide to go down,” the supposed “insider” tells the magazine.

A source close to DeGeneres told Gossip Cop tells us they’ve “never heard” DeGeneres mention anything about her supposed project with Jolie. Of course, this is not the first time Life & Style has gotten a story completely wrong about DeGeneres. In August, for example, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely reporting that the talk show host was considering getting plastic surgery after her mom supposedly told her to “stop complaining” about her “deep crow’s feet and puffy eyes.” That story was untrue, and the magazine’s latest tale involving Jolie is similarly false.
