Angelina Jolie and Keanu Reeves aren't dating, despite various tabloids attempting to create a fake romance between the two. Gossip Cop has debunked many variations of the phony narrative. Here are a few wrong rumors.
Gossip Cop first busted the premise back in October 2018 when NW falsely claimed Jolie and Reeves had been "quietly dating" for more than a year. According to the outlet, the two stars met after the actress and her six kids moved next door to his mom's house in Los Angeles. Jolie and Reeves were even said to have taken a "top-secret trip to a secluded Greek island together."
A supposed source told the publication that Reeves was bonding with the actress's children, while his mom was hoping he'd "settle down" with Jolie. Not only did an individual in the actress's camp assure us the story was fabricated, but around the same time, reliable outlets such as People magazine and E! News reported that she wasn't interested in dating and was focused on her kids. That remains the case.
Last month, Star published a bogus cover story alleging Jolie had asked Reeves out on a date. The tabloid contended that the actress was looking for love again and had set her sights on the John Wick star. "She hasn't been this excited about a man since she first met Brad [Pitt]," a supposed source was quoted as saying.
The anonymous tipster went on to say that Reeves gave Jolie "butterflies" because he was "just her type - edgy and a bit of a rogue." The supposed insider further maintained that the actress had set up "an intimate dinner at her house" for just the two of them. Reeves' own spokesperson, however, told Gossip Cop that the article was "completely false" and the interaction "never occurred." Meanwhile, Jolie's rep confirmed that the actress was single and remained concerned with her career and her family.
And shortly after that, Gossip Cop called out Woman's Day for falsely claiming Jolie wanted Reeves to join her upcoming Marvel movie, The Eternals, so she could date him once they start working together. The story came on the heels of unverified rumors about the actor being in talks for the comic book film. Reeves' involvement in the project is still unclear, but the magazine claimed Jolie was actively campaigning for him to come on board as an excuse to pursue him on set.
An individual in the actress's camp laughed off the report. In addition to Jolie taking a break from dating, she's certainly not trying to find a boyfriend by casting him in one of her films. It remains to be seen whether or not Reeves will co-star in The Eternals, but Gossip Cop can confirm that Jolie isn't hoping to make a love connection on set. These various storylines involving the two stars are all fabricated.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
