Angelina Jolie has not asked out Keanu Reeves on a date, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the story. The actor's own spokesperson tells us it's untrue.
According to Star, however, Jolie decided she's ready to find love again after turning 44 earlier this month and has set her sights on the John Wick star. "Her birthday felt like a turning point and the right time to begin a relationship," an alleged source tells the outlet. "She hasn't been this excited about a man since she first met Brad [Pitt]."
The magazine says Jolie first met Reeves in 2017 when she bought a house in the same neighborhood of Los Angeles where the actor's mom Patricia lives. "They found they have a lot in common, and the attraction was definitely there," adds the supposed insider. "Patricia would love to see Keanu finally settle down after all these years, and Angelina's someone who'd fit right in with the family."
The questionable tipster continues, "Keanu gives her butterflies! After all, he's just her type - edgy and a bit of a rogue. Plus, she thinks he's gorgeous." The unnamed source further contends that Jolie "was too nervous" to ask Reeves' mom to set up a date, so she instead had a "mutual pal" reach out to the actor. "She wants an intimate dinner at her house, and has arranged a chef to prepare it ahead of time so she and Keanu can be totally alone," adds the seemingly phony insider.
Gossip Cop, however, reached out to Reeves' rep, who tells us Star was already sent a denial prior to publishing its report. The actor's spokesperson, who was alerted of the article ahead of time, tells us, "This is the statement I sent to them: Your story is completely false and has no basis in any truth. This event never occurred. Once again you are manufacturing and inventing lies in order to increase your sales for purely financial gain." The unreliable magazine didn't bother to include the statement from Reeves' spokesperson, but had no problem presenting claims from an anonymous "source."
It should also be noted, Jolie's rep has told Gossip Cop several times that the actress is focused on work and her children at this time. The actress, who's spending the summer with her kids in New Mexico while shooting a movie, isn't interested in dating.
Unfortunately, Star has a habit of arbitrarily linking the actress to famous men. Back in February, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Jolie was dating Sean Penn. She wasn't. Last December, we called out the publication for wrongly reporting that Jolie was secretly dating Jared Leto. That wasn't the case either.
Additionally, this isn't the first time a tabloid has made up a story about Jolie dating Reeves. Last October, Gossip Cop debunked an NW article claiming the two stars had been in a secret romance since July 2017 following a "top-secret trip to a secluded Greek island." This latest article dials back the scenario a bit, but it's no more accurate.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
