Unlikely pals Angelina Jolie, The Weeknd dine out on heels of his acting news
Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd were snapped exiting celebrity hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles Wednesday night, setting gossip tongues to wagging as to what their night out might have entailed.
After spending hours at the high-end Italian eatery, the pair were sure to leave separately so as to not be photographed together.
The 46-year-old Oscar winner wore a black silk dress and trench coat while the “After Hours” singer, 31, kept it simple in a denim look and black boots.
While it’s possible the beauty and mother of six shared a romantic evening with the Toronto artist, the singer, né Abel Tesfaye, is also looking to further his career in Hollywood, meaning the pair could’ve met up for business reasons and nothing more.
“They’re clearly not trying to hide [the dinner date],” a source close to The Weeknd told Page Six. “He’s definitely focused on getting to the movie business. He has the new HBO series he’s starring in.”
Tesfaye — who played a memorable role in Adam Sandler’s “Uncut Gems” and co-wrote an episode of “American Dad” last year — is set to co-write and star in the new HBO series “The Idol,” which he co-created with Reza Fahim and “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson.
The plot involves a female pop singer who becomes romantically involved with a Los Angeles club owner—who also happens to be a cult leader.
The “Blinding Lights” singer dated Bella Hadid in 2015, breaking up in 2016 and reuniting in 2017 after he had a 10-month fling with Selena Gomez. They split for good in 2019.
Jolie, who celebrated her 46th birthday last month, has reportedly been reconnecting with ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller.
She was photographed leaving her British ex’s apartment building in Dumbo last month wearing a long, tan trench coat and holding a pricey bottle of Peter Michael wine.
