Brad Boy

‘IT’S hard to know who to feel more sorry for, Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, when they had to shoot a naked shower scene for their upcoming flick Mr And Mrs Smith.

The co-stars caught naked together

The studio couldn’t decide, according to the National Enquirer, so it decided to pay them both $2m extra ‘because of the nudity and intimacy involved’.

By right, Angelina should have got more – there is apparently a full-frontal shot of her in the movie, while Brad only has to bare his backside.

But is this extra money really necessary to persuade them to get their kit off in front of each other?

The Enquirer hears whispers of an off-screen romance as well.

The evidence for this may be as thin as Calista Flockhart’s skinny younger sister, but – hey! – why let the facts get in the way of a good rumour.

Exhibit A is the fact that Angelina began staying on set after shooting her scenes just to be with Brad. One night, they even had a couple of drinks together after work.

Exhibit B is the testimony of staff at the Downtown LA Standard hotel, who claim they saw the couple making out in the lounge area of the hotel.

‘Whether it was part of a movie scene, rehearsal or something else,’ a source says, ‘no-one really knows.’

The presence of a film crew recording the whole incident might have been complete coincidence.

Exhibit C is more oral testimony, this time from an extra, who says that a dance scene in the film was choreographed to look sexy…’and it did’.

‘I was wondering how much of the scene was acting and how much it was real passion,’ said the extra, who is still wondering

But there is more. The Enquirer reminds us that Angelina has a track record of falling for her co-stars – she met her first two husbands on a film set.

And Brad’s record in that regard is not bad – he went out with Geena Davis after meeting her on the set of Thelma & Louise and with Gwyneth Paltrow after she played his wife in Seven.

But most incriminating of all is a photograph, which shows Brad giving Angelina a peck on the cheek.

For us dissolute Europeans, that might seem as normal as shaking hands, but in America that constitutes heavy petting. No wonder Jennifer Aniston’s worried…’
