Are Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell Really Dating?
Ever since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced their plans for a divorce in 2016 after a long relationship together, fans and gossip magazines have been dying to know who they could be dating next.
Recently, the tabloids are going wild at reports of Angelina Jolie possibly romancing up with Irish actor Colin Farrell. But are these rumors true? Are these two actually dating? Here’s what we know.
Why do people think Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell are dating?
According to OK! Magazine, Jolie and Farrell have been in a secret relationship with each other for about two months. This report was backed up by the fact that, last month, Angelina Jolie took her children to a premiere of Dumbo, which Colin Farrell is starring in, to support him.
This is not the first time that Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell are linked together, however.
They worked in the 2004 movie Alexander alongside each other and were thought to have been hooking up at that time. Allegedly, though, Farrell was too much of a bad boy for their relationship to work. Thus, Angelina Jolie moved on to marry Brad Pitt not long after.
“Angelina was really into Colin back then and has always considered him the one that got away,” a source claimed.
Now that they have both matured and are single again, reports are saying that Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell are serious about rekindling their romance.
Are Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell really dating?
This is one instance where we should take tabloid claims with a pinch of salt. According to Gossip Cop, these rumors are very much false and there is no reason to believe that Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell are having some sort of secret relationship with each other.
Gossip Cop pointed out that even those rumors that they were together in 2004 were never true.
“This wrong rumor was started in 2013 by Perez Hilton, who falsely claimed the actress had been ‘hooking up’ with her Alexander co-star in 2004 but ended up ‘settling’ for Brad Pitt. Jolie and Farrell’s camps each laughed off the report,” the site wrote.
Furthermore, Gossip Cop also stated that Angelina Jolie took her children to a Dumbo premiere simply because she enjoys taking them out to special events like film premieres, not because she was dating Colin Farrell and wanted to support him. In fact, some time before Dumbo, the kids were seen in New York at a screening for the movie The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind.
Is Angelina Jolie in a relationship with someone else?
Before rumors about Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell began circulating the internet, Life & Style published a huge story in their magazine about Angelina Jolie getting ready to tie the knot with a mysterious British billionaire who she supposedly met through George and Amal Clooney. OK!
While these reports sound very juicy, they eventually proved to be completely unfounded.
As of now, it seems that Angelina Jolie is simply focusing on her custody battle with Brad Pitt. The pair announced their split in 2016 and have since been locked in disagreements about how to share custody of their six adopted and biological children. As such, whenever rumors about Angelina Jolie and another man comes out, they have always been shut down by people close to her.
“She is absolutely not seeing anyone and will not be,” a source told People last year. “She will focus only on their children and being with them. She has no interest in dating at all.”
