Angelina Jolie is NOT planning on making a movie biopic about Celine Dion, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told there’s “no truth” to it.
According to Star, Jolie believes Dion would make a great subject for a film, and hopes to tell the singer’s life story. A so-called “source” claims in the tabloid, “Angie says the story practically writes itself, from Celine’s childhood singing in dive bars to meeting her future husband, Rene Angelil, when she was 12 and then going on to date him as soon as she was of legal age.”
The tabloid further alleges Jolie is giving Dion time to mourn the recent deaths of her husband, Rene, and brother, Daniel, before making the supposed movie. The magazine’s questionable insider adds, “Celine knows Angie would love to work with her. It’s only a matter of time before they come together and make the film.”
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Jolie, who exclusively tells us there’s “no truth” to the tabloid’s claim that the actress wants to make a movie about Dion. Jolie is always circling many film projects, but Dion’s life story simply isn’t one of them. And a rep for Dion tells Gossip Cop she “never heard” of the proposed project.
Of course, Gossip Cop isn’t surprised by the tabloid’s phony tale, considering that we’ve repeatedly had to correct Star for making up stories about Jolie. We recently busted the magazine for wrongly claiming the actress forces her staff to watch her movies and then demands they give her positive feedback. Shortly before that, Gossip Cop corrected the tabloid’s false cover story that alleged Jolie gave Brad Pitt a “divorce ultimatum.” The magazine’s latest claim about Jolie’s nonexistent plans for a Celine Dion movie is similarly false.
