Gangelina? Angelina Jolie is allegedly revenge-romancing Garrett Hedlund now?

Embed from Getty Images

Yes, I’m an Angelina Jolie stan. I think the world of her. Which is why I’ll probably never believe that Jolie is now or has ever been the kind of woman who would go for a “revenge romance.” She’s not going to date or bang anyone for “revenge.” If she’s going to bang anyone, it’s going to be because she’s hot for them or because she needs to get some ~for herself~ you know? In any case, I will never believe any gossip story about Jolie having a “revenge romance.” But I’ll always want to believe any gossip about Jolie banging a hot guy. This week’s alleged hot guy romancer is… Garrett Hedlund. I approve.

Angelina Jolie has her eye on a new guy — hottie Garrett Hedlund! Sources close to the 42-year-old single mom told that friends think she and Hedlund, 33, are a perfect match!

“It’s gone from exchanging the odd email to texting several times a day and planning to meet up for dinner,” revealed a source. “It’s Garrett who’s making all the moves!”

The blue-eyed hunk dated actress Kirsten Dunst for four years after they met on the set of 2012’s On the Road. Ironically, Hedlund’s first big-screen role was with Jolie’s ex, Brad Pitt, in 2004’s Troy.

But insiders said Hedlund and Jolie have shared an electric chemistry since she cast him in her 2014 drama Unbroken.

“Angie’s incredibly flattered and enjoying Garrett’s attention. He’s like a younger, hotter Brad and she’s confessed to a couple of girlfriends that she’d be up for a fling with him,” a source said. “It would be the ultimate revenge romance!”

[From Radar]

Garrett was good in Unbroken, even though I totally forgot that he was in it. I always thought Jolie had more chemistry one-on-one with Jack O’Connell though, like maybe Jack was more “her type.” Jack is the bad-boy with the accent. Garrett is… well, I don’t really know how to define Garrett at this point. He’s a very talented actor. He’s reminiscent of a young Brad Pitt, absolutely. In another era, Garrett would be working constantly, but I get the feeling that he’s very “picky” these days. So… if this is happening – and to be clear, it is not happening – would you be into it? Angie + Garrett = Gangie? Garngie? Gangelina?

    In these photos she is certainly looking more like “herself”–meaning glamorous, beautiful, and much less stressed. Whether it’s him, or the gradual recovery from a bad relationship with Pitt, it looks good on her.
    I also like Pitt.

    • Sayrah says:

      She does look stunning in that bottom pic. Something is working for her!

    • Veronica says:

      Enabling an alcoholic while also raising 6 kids and having a career that takes you all over the world – exhausting.
      And I do think AJ tried to keep her relationship and family together, in spite of Brad’s drinking and bad behavior. I thought that after hearing that she wasn’t the one who called the cops on Brad for the plane incident – it was someone else on the plane. I think she excused his behavior for years.
      I’m glad for her she is out from under that.

  2. Ellequeenofhaters says:

    Garrett Hedlund IS a younger Brad Pitt. He played Pitt’s younger brother in Troy

    • Maya says:

      Played cousin and in real Troy, they were a couple 😂

      • norah says:

        he was in unbroken with her directing and there were rumors then as well. i dont mind if it is true – nothing like a hotter guy to be with – heh

    • whatWHAT? says:

      he’s awfully pretty, I’ll give him that. not sure I’ve seen him IN anything though.

      I have to agree with Kaiser here…if there’s anything going on (doubtful but who knows) it’s simply because she wants some, not because it’s revenge.

      I say go on, girl!

      • MamaHoneyBadger says:

        Watch “Mudbound.” A great voice and a syrupy Southern drawl* that’ll make you want to pull up a chair while he reads the phone book out loud.

        *the drawl was for the movie

      • Franklymydear... says:

        Also, the pretty terrible Paltrow movie “Country Strong” where he plays a country crooner. SWOON. He’s got an amazing voice, in addition to that face. The movie’s not great but he’s worth it.

      • citney says:


        Watch the Angie haters say what a terrible Mother Angie is if or when she decides to be with another man.

        Brad Pitt has been encouraged from the minute Angie kicked Brad to the curb to bed as many women (or rather girls) as he could. The old double standard will definitely raise it’s ugly head.

        Angie has been the parent who has been taking every step with the JP children during their therapy and of course sadness over the parting of their parents. Time for Angie to let her hair down and have some fun.

      • LetItGooo says:

        Omg he was perfect in Mudbound. I didn’t even register that it was him, as I haven’t seen him in a lot, and I’ve yet to see Unbroken (not a war film fan) but this little but of gossip is making me want to now. Lol But his character in Mudbound, the only redeeming white person in the whole thing practically, is mesmerizing. He’s like a young Paul Newman…or young Brad Pitt. Bahaha. Seriously, stream this. But be careful. This movie kicks your azz. It’s heart and gut wrenching.

    • Godwina says:

      She can do so much better…

  3. Alix says:

    He looks like a watered-down version of Pitt. Meh.

    • Luna says:

      He looks like a Beckham.

    • Nancy says:

      Just got off Taylor’s thread and this dude looks like her bf’s brother. Very Wonder Bread, generic looking.

    • Bellagio DuPont says:

      Yup. Exactly that…..A less substantial version of Pitt.

      But for a temporary side piece, why not? You don’t always have to have the full fat, salted caramel and brownie Haagen dazs….sometimes, frozen yoghurt works just as well.

      • SM says:

        Please. See him in Mudbound. He has talent and while he may not photograph well, but he is sexy in motion. Would choose him over Pitt or Beckham any day and don’t even compare him to the wooden swift boy. Though I am sure this rumour is based solely on the picture of them at the awards show, just like the rumour about her and Chris Hemsworth came just becajse they were seated next to one another at GG.

      • Kitten says:

        I’m right there with you, SM. I think he is sexy AF. Great actor and THAT VOICE. Sigh.

        I want this to be a thing because they’re both so hot.

      • LetItGooo says:


        Thanks for encapsulating what it is about him- photos don’t do this hunk of charisma justice. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s his photo facial expression or pose. I agree with sm, the man needs all 3 dimensions, but short of that seeing him smolder onscreen is the next best thing – you will get it. I promise.


      • Veronica says:

        By the end of their marriage, Brad was no Haagen Dazs – he was more like a half-empty carton of leftover Chinese food left out overnight.

  4. Una says:

    Well, if this is true, she definitely has a type.

  5. Lexter says:

    Isn’t he a bit of a dumb dumb?

  6. Shappalled says:


  7. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    Why would this be revenge tho? And even so, why would she want to take revenge with someone who reminds her of the man she left? The above statement is dumb.

    I don’t believe this story simply because of the source. But, if it turns out to be true, I hope she is having fun with him.

    • N. says:

      You’re right. Why would she need to waste her time on revenge?
      She kicked Brad out and I’m pretty sure she’s done with him. She has more important things to do than playing mind games with the ex.

      • norah says:

        i know but it is still fun for the tabloids to run bs like this – she has more impt things to worry about than a fling

    • minx says:

      She has bigger fish to fry than to bother with “revenge” anything. This is a busy woman! If she likes the guy she’ll be with him, if not she won’t. She’s not a Kardashian ffs.

      • Joy says:

        Right?? Like she’s not raising 6 kids, responsbilities , all her work and projects? These kinda stories about Angelina while annoying make me laugh a bit. Her schedule seems ridiculous, she’s always got something. As a fan I hope she starts making more time for herself, but well she recently said it drives her crazy when people tell her to relax, so not holding my breath.

      • Lilly says:

        Ha ha. True.

      • Veronica says:

        I think most people would agree that AJ is not a silly woman. She is a substantial woman, who I hope would have fun with a nice guy if she wanted to. But I agree that I doubt this very busy woman has time to have revenge sex.

    • LetItGooo says:

      Yea I don’t get the ‘revenge romance’ tag either.

      Setting aside the fact they still aren’t divorced…let’s assume they are for these purposes and are dating others again…in some form or fashion.

      Angelina kicked Brad to the curb, for reasons having to do with his addictions– neither one has been in a confirmed serious or even confirmed casual relationship with anyone else in the interim.

      So just what would Angelina be seeking revenge for? Makes no sense.

  8. Snowflake says:

    Does nothing for me. Now the movie Troy, whew! *fanning myself* hot

  9. Toot says:

    Garret is cute and has a nice voice. If the is true, I say get it Angie.

  10. Midigo says:

    Gaydar ticking….

  11. WMGDtoo says:

    Garrett and Brad have been friends for years. I don’t see him wanting to deal with six kids.. Even with Angelina Jolie.

  12. ORIGINAL T.C. says:

    Has she dated any other pretty boy besides Brad? I thought she’s more into tall, dark and non-traditionally handsome?? I don’t know her of course but I would guess her next guy is more non-traditional hunk. Or a plain Joe. Anyway in general it seems like beautiful women are not into dating their mirrors (fellow beautiful man).

  13. magnoliarose says:

    It seems random but who knows. For revenge I don’t believe but I guess maybe??? Idk.

  14. tracking says:

    I definitely agree that Jack is more her type.

  15. Louise177 says:

    It’s annoying when people call somebody a lookalike because they have the same hair and race color. Garrett and Brad don’t look alike to me. Also Angelina doesn’t strike me as a revenge person. She does what she wants and moves on. Like I don’t believe she’s hated Jennifer Aniston for 15 years. She doesn’t strike me as spiteful and petty.

    • Snowflake says:

      So annoying! Like when people said Meghan Markle looks like Pippa. Why?! Because they both have brown hair and eyes? One’s mixed, one is not!

    • Kitten says:

      Agree with every point you made here.

    • citney says:

      I agree Louise177, Angelina is not the type to waste time or energy on “revenge”, as for Aniston, I doubt she’s been given 10 minutes of Angie’s time in 13 years.

  16. Lucy2 says:

    I don’t see her going with someone younger for a fling. I think she’s going to end up next with someone who is older and much more serious.

    • N. says:

      I remember her saying that she’s pretty much done with Hollywood.
      I think her next guy will be a politician, or at least someone who has more to offer than just good looks and red carpets.

    • tracking says:

      I could see her having a fling or two, but I do think she is set on being part of a different kind of power couple–this time on the world political stage.

    • Tj says:

      Brad was already 12 years older… why go for anyone much older? Just someone around her age would be good for her. But yeah, I don’t see her someone younger who could handle the commitment.

  17. Maya says:

    If Angelina is getting something on the side then it will be extremely discreet.

    But still rooting for Angelina + Keanu Reeves = gossip gold

    • Rumi says:

      I don’t think she’s vengeful, maybe she wants to just have some fun!
      But YES!!! Keanu and Jolie would be amazing!!!

    • ZGB says:

      Now, why didn’t I think of THAT!!
      Angelina is so ship-worthy, you just want the best for her.

      But I think Keanu is too shy for the kind of publicity that comes with her.
      Alien and Exotic couple…sigh.

      • Maya says:

        I think if they got together then it will be kept private.

        With Brad, he was used to being famous and IT couple.

        But I can totally see Angelina going completely private regarding her private life for someone she loved.

        I love Keanu (since Speed) and I love Angelina- them getting together will be wicked and so cool.

      • SJhere says:

        Oooh! AJ + Keanu, what a gorgeous couple they would make together. I love KR!
        Maybe they could both get together just for a charity do. Who doesn’t want to see a smiling Keanu in a tux and a beaming AJ all decked out in a great formal gown? That would be fun. :)

        And I agree that Jonny Lee Miller is very hot.

  18. Krill says:

    She will probably end up with an older political figure possibly even a politician. It will not be an American. I’m betting it will be a retired British cabinet secretary.

  19. AbbyRose says:

    I never got this guy’s appeal until I saw him in Mudbound (on Netflix). He was magnetic.

    He was also in that awful country music movie with Gwyneth, and I remember her comparing him to Pitt as well.

    I think Angie’s next LTR will be with a woman.

    • crazydaisy says:

      I think so, too, AbbyRose. She’s passed her menopause. Men? Oh PAUSE.

    • citney says:

      A woman? Angie had one short “relationship” with one woman, give it a rest.

      Someone else has had a decade long romance with a woman and her PR keeps it on the down low. This woman cannot keep a man, and there’s no doubt it’s because of the other woman in her life. Why she doesn’t come out is a mystery, except maybe because she doesn’t want to upset her minivan majority fans.

      • Kelly says:

        Angie made the comment herself – her attraction is not based on the person’s sex. I’m assuming she knows more about herself than you do. And is it really necessary to “defend” Angie by accusing JA of the very same thing? Just because you didn’t use her name doesn’t mean it’s absolutely clear who you’re referring to.

        Plus, if you’re really going there – one has three divorces and other has two. Seems to me that neither choose to stay in relationships that don’t work.

  20. Hkk says:

    Nah. She will end up with a philanthropist or someone with a title, maybe even a lady with a title . The name should be Angett though everything else sounds like a form of gangrene.

  21. Lizzie says:

    get it. he’s sexy as hell. i hope she tapes it for posterity.

  22. MVC says:

    I don’t believe this, not because it’s impossible but because it comes from radaronline.

  23. Hazel says:

    Pics or it didn’t happen. What I’ve known through the years is that Brangelina kept their shit together. No one knew about Angelina’s mastectomy or knew about the divorce. So side-eying these sources who have access to her emails and texts.

    • minx says:

      Exactly. And no one knew about the Pitt/Jolie wedding until after it happened. These people know how to keep a secret.

  24. Tessa says:

    Na. Don’t believe this for a minute.

  25. Yeahright says:

    I doubt this.
    He was great in Mudbound.

  26. Joy says:

    Radar exists to make up stories about Angelina, as someone above said lol they have access to her friends like seriously. I agree Jack seems more her type , I like Garret he has a sexy voice but meh don’t see it. Also the revenge angle is silly & stupid, Angelina has always said she’s very much about getting on with things and moving forward . Like many on here have said I see her with an older Politician , philanthropic type .

    She always said she saw herself with a U.N. field worker type back in the day. I’d be shocked if she dated another actor, think she’s done with them and will likely keep her next relationship or hook up on the dl. If Jonny were single, I’d love a Jonny and Angelina round 3 temporary situation. I loved them together & that seemed the only relationship she always revisted in between others , but that’s likely because of their history and friendship between them.

  27. Tallia says:

    Revenge for what? Did I miss something?

  28. Lucy says:

    I, too, doubt it, but she definitely should. He’s HAWT.

  29. Wurstfingers says:


  30. Betsy says:

    Garrett Hedlund. Yep.

  31. noway says:

    I don’t see Angelina as the revenge type. Maybe when she was younger and wearing vials of blood, but unlike others I think she has grown out of any middle school ways. If she’s with him, which I also believe with a wink and a grain of salt, she’s with him because she wants to be. He’s cute whatever strikes her fancy. I wouldn’t presume to know her type. As I think none of the three men she’s been married to seem to have that much a similarity, Brad, Billy Bob and Jimmy. Well they are all actors and Garret is to, so it must be.

  32. teacakes says:

    I was always mystified by him dating Kirsten Dunst, like ‘what does one of the coolest people in Hollywood see in this generic-looking blonde dude?’ but now I get it.

    I call bull on this though. It’s probably made up like 90 percent of the Brangelina stories (true story – I knew someone who was a tabloid writer in the 00s and she straight-up said almost all of what they wrote about the Brange was made up. Which makes sense considering how nearly all their major developments happened by total stealth – the adoption of Zahara and Pax, the wedding, her mastectomy, the split).

  33. brooksie says:

    I sat next to him at a restaurant in the West Village a couple of years ago and holy shit, he is a stunner.

  34. Patty says:


  35. stelly says:

    Holy shit! I think he’s one of the hottest dudes in Hollywood. His voice is so deep and sexy. I loved him in Mosaic too. Yes! They would be such a hot couple. Bad couple name options though!

    • SM says:

      Oh damn, i love watching him on screen- sexy and a capable actor. Have bo time for a show now, but I keepnreminding myself that once I have time, I need to watch Mosaic. Pretty much for him and Sharon Stone

  36. Taxi says:

    Yes. I see tepid, at best. I’d miss him in a small group.

  37. TheOtherSam says:

    Meh. She’s well past her pretty boy stage at this point. And he doesn’t seem the type to want to deal with motherhood and someone with kids; he allegedly broke up with Kiki Dunst because she wanted kids and he didn’t.

    • citney says:

      Pretty boys don’t always act very “pretty”. They can be downright “ugly”. I think Angie has seen this first hand.

  38. Mia says:

    I really wish him and Kirsten stayed together. I really liked them. Lol I legitimately can’t get over the fact that she engaged to and having a baby with Meth Damon now.

  39. Shana says:

    Poor guy

  40. Candies says:

    Um no I don’t see it…but I am sure she can get younger toyboys… dating after divorce file is not cheating Angie. Lols obviously Brad is banned from it until final :) she is banned too? These two :)

  41. Kelly says:

    I’m sure it’s not true, but she’s never gone younger. I’m sure it would be an interesting change for her.

  42. Mina says:

    He’s hot!!! I approved too!

  43. Evie says:

    Girls just wanna have fun! Get it Angie…Garrett is very attractive. He was the best and just about only reason to watch “Country Strong” very sexy in that movie.

    He was OK in Troy but I agree with the poster up thread: Eric Bana stole that show.

    If they are dating, good for them. Let Angie have her fun and enjoy life.

  44. Lala says:

    I so wish Angelina had a J in her name so they could be referred to as Ganja
