Angelina Jolie is not dating Evan Rachel Wood, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the romance rumors. The two actresses aren’t a couple.

“In Heaven With Evan: Ange’s New Lady Love” reads a ridiculous headline in the latest issue of Woman’s Day. The accompanying article quotes a “source” as saying, “Angelina is absolutely smitten with Evan. And while she’s determined to keep things private for as long as she can, she’s told pals that she’s done with men and is the happiest she’s been in a long time.”

The alleged tipster says Jolie and Wood shared a “magnetic attraction” when they first met at the Screen Actors Guild 10 years ago, at which time they were with Brad Pitt and Marilyn Manson, respectively. “Ange always thought Evan was incredibly attractive and said they had a spark after hanging out backstage at the awards, but they both had partners at the time. They had an electric chemistry, and Brad even joked about feeling left out after Ange gushed about Evan afterwards.”

The sketchy source goes on to say Jolie and Wood reconnected at “Disney’s headquarters” a few months ago, when they were doing voiceovers for their new movies Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Frozen 2. “Evan reckons the romance happened very organically and it progressed out of their friendship – gushing about how Ange is one of the most passionate and inspiring people she’s ever met.”

From there, the questionable tipster says Jolie has told Wood that she’s “head over heels and wants to make a life with her – with the pair planning their first vacation with their kids and even talking about moving in together.” The seemingly imaginary source adds, “[Jolie] says after being with men for so many years, Evan was her sign that it was time to give another relationship a chance again. She’s hoping that once her divorce is finalized, she can at last move forward with her life and a future with Evan.”

The tabloid’s article is both very random and completely untrue. For starters, Jolie and Wood haven’t been spotted together since the 2009 SAG Awards, where they posed for a photo backstage. If the two actresses were having some sort of love affair for several months, it seems unlikely there’d be zero indication of it. Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Jolie, who tells us the magazine’s story is total fiction. We’re assured the actress isn’t dating anyone at this time as she remains focused on her kids and her career.

It should be noted, Woman’s Day has already proven to have zero insight into the Maleficent star’s love life. Just last month, Gossip Cop busted the magazine for falsely claiming Jolie was developing a romance with one of the stuntman on the set of Marvel’s Eternals. In October, the outlet wrongly reported that Michelle Pfeiffer was setting up Jolie with Johnny Depp. This latest phony article says she’s been secretly dating Wood for months. The tabloid seems to come up with its fake narratives on a whim.
