You may have spotted some rumblings regarding Angelina Jolie and Paul Mescal because they were just spotted out in London together and the internet can’t get over the news. It all started after an Instagram fan page for Mescal posted a photo of the Normal People actor sitting in a coffee shop in London with the Oscar-winning actress.
The pair was also joined by Jolie’s 16-year-old daughter Shiloh. According to the fan Instagram Story, Jolie and Shiloh attended the play A Streetcar Named Desire at the Almeida Theatre, where Mescal is currently starring in the role of Stanley.
Jolie has often been spotting taking her kids to plays and concerts — over the summer she was seen in the crowd at a Måneskin’s concert in Rome with Shiloh, singing along to the music.
While all signs point to this being a friendly post-show chat, there has been speculation that Mescal may be single after a possible split from girlfriend Phoebe Bridgers. The couple fueled dating rumors after connecting on Twitter in early 2020, then went red carpet official at the LACMA Art+Film Gala in November 2021. They later attended the 2022 Met Gala together.
But lately, fans think they may have called it quits after Bridgers was seen kissing The 1975’s Matty Healy.
She also may have possibly hinted at a breakup after contributing to SZA’s new song “Ghost in the Machine” with lyrics that alluded to an argument that took place “in the Ludlow.”
Jolie split from ex-husband Brad Pitt in 2016. She previously sparked dating rumors with The Weeknd (whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye) after being spotted out together on numerous occasions in 2021. But the actress was very quick to shut down any discussion of her status with the Weeknd during her The Eternals press tour in October 2021.
An interviewer asked the star if her kids (she also has five other children with Pitt including Maddox, 21, Pax, 19, Zahara, 17, Knox and Vivienne, 14), were more excited for her movie or for her friendship with The Weeknd, the actress replied, “They’re very excited about this film, if that’s what you’re asking.” Before she repeated herself again saying, “They’re very excited about this film.”
