Is Josh Duhamel really pursuing Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron? A tabloid claims the actor wants to date one of the stars. Gossip Cop can debunk the made-up story.
According to NW, the 46-year-old actor is done dating women much younger and has set his sights on either Jolie or Theron as a romantic partner. A supposed source tells the magazine, "Josh has really changed his tune and wants to be with a woman who has her own life, career and experience. The last thing he wants is to be the next Leonardo DiCaprio, so he's decided he's done with partying and dating women in their twenties."
Duhamel, who shares a young son with ex-wife Fergie, "wants to be with somebody who isn't highly strung or too focused on their image and can be a positive force in his son's life," adds the alleged tipster. "He's more than willing to put in the time to get what he ultimately wants."
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the actor, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but assures us the tabloid's report is fabricated. The actor isn't pursuing a romance with either Jolie or Theron. It's worth noting, Jolie's camp has told us countless time that the actress isn't interested in dating and is entirely focused on her six kids at this time.
Meanwhile, Theron said in a recent interview with "Extra" that she's not looking for love at the moment, adding, "I'm gonna shoot a movie in London, and I'm figuring like around September we'll talk about this." Considering that neither actress is in the market for a boyfriend, it seems unlikely Duhamel is chasing after them.
It must be mentioned, NW has already proven to have zero insight into the actor's love life. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting that Duhamel was "romancing" Jennifer Garner. The Love, Simon co-stars later laughed off the dating rumors while promoting their movie. Shortly after that, the unreliable magazine falsely claimed Duhamel was pursuing Megan Fox on the set of their upcoming movie Think Like a Dog. Not only was the story totally bogus, but the actress shares three children with her husband, Brian Austin Green.
It's also worth noting, Gossip Cop called out the magazine in February for concocting a tale about Jolie pursuing Theron's ex-boyfriend Sean Penn to get revenge on the actress for supposedly dating Brad Pitt. Nothing about that phony scenario was remotely true and this latest article makes no mention of it. If the two actresses were truly in a crazy love rivalry two months ago, one would think NW would bring it up. This latest article involving Duhamel is more fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
