AceShowbiz - Another day, another man is linked to Angelina Jolie. The actress/director, who has never gone public with a new relationship since splitting up from former longtime partner and husband of two years Brad Pitt in 2016, is reportedly crushing hard on her "Maleficent 2" co-star Ed Skrein.
"Angie thinks Ed's hot and she loves the idea of working with him," a source tells Star magazine (via HollywoodLife.com). "Obviously, he's a great actor, but she's also looking forward to chatting with him behind the scenes. She'd love to get to know Ed and find out what makes him tick."
A self-professed "family man," Ed who has a seven-year-old son is dubbed an ideal type for Angie, who shares six kids with her ex Brad Pitt. The "First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers" director reportedly had a hand in casting Ed for the "Maleficent 2" role as she could spot his "star quality" and talent "from a mile away."
But winning the heart of the former "Game of Thrones" star won't be easy. The 35-year-old English actor previously said he rarely hung out with his castmates. "After premiere [parties] or events, some of the stars are like, 'Let's go out,' and I just go back to the hotel room. I am the most boring person!" he admitted.
While it's not an ideal situation for Angie to get to know Ed better, she reportedly sees the benefit of it because "if word gets out about her flirting with Ed, it will drive Brad nuts!" according to the source.
Unfortunately, Ed is not necessarily available. While little is known about his love life, the hunky actor is believed to be in a relationship with a woman who is also his son's mother. It's reported in 2015 that they lived together in East London with their son, and there's no report if they've broken up.
