Is Angelina Jolie flirting with Kit Harington on the set of Marvel's Eternals? That's the phony story one of this week's tabloids is pushing. Gossip Cop has learned it's fabricated.
"Watch Out, Rose! Angie Cozies Up To Kit," reads a headline in the latest issue of Life & Style. The accompanying article says Harington's wife, Rose Leslie, should be nervous because Jolie has been getting close to her husband while filming their superhero movie in England. "[Jolie] just can't help herself," an alleged insider tells the magazine. "While Kit would never act on it, it is Angelina Jolie. There's no denying her effect on men."
The supposed source continues, "She has this way of looking at you that makes you feel like you're the center of the universe." Naturally, the outlet mentions how Brad Pitt ended his marriage to Jennifer Aniston while working with Jolie on 2005's Mr. & Mrs. Smith. "Angie's reputation precedes her, so people on the set are watching her very carefully" adds the questionable tipster. "Rose has nothing to worry about on Kit's end, but nevertheless, she should watch her back."
The magazine's article is totally fabricated. It was created to stir up drama simply because Jolie is working with a famous married man. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the actress, who assures us the tabloid's premise is flat-out "ridiculous." A mutual pal of ours and Harington similarly confirms there's no truth to it. There's nothing unprofessional or flirtatious going on between the Eternals co-stars.
Unfortunately, given what happened during the filming of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the tabloids enjoy coming up with this idea that Jolie has set out to steal another woman's husband. In August, Gossip Cop busted Life & Style's sister publication, Star, for falsely claiming Jolie had slipped Chris Hemsworth her phone number at Comic-Con, much to the chagrin of the actor's wife, Elsa Pataky. In January of this year, the same outlet made up an absurd story about Jolie stealing David Beckham from his wife Victoria. Nothing about either scenario was a reality.
This isn't even the first time the tabloids have used the set of Eternals as some sort of place for Jolie to find love. Back in May, Gossip Cop debunked a story about Jolie crushing on co-star Richard Madden. That bogus article was written well before shooting on the Marvel movie had even started.
In June, we called out a publication for wrongly reporting Jolie wanted Keanu Reeves to join the cast of Eternals so she could date him. The John Wick star won't be appearing in the film, but the entire report was baseless regardless. We suppose it was only a matter of time before a tabloid decided to concoct a fake narrative involving Jolie and Harington.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
