Angelina Jolie avoided answering a question about the nature of her relationship with The Weeknd while promoting her latest film, “Eternals.”
During her appearance on E! with co-star Salma Hayek on Monday, host Justin Sylvester asked Jolie if her kids were more excited about her Marvel movie or her friendship with the “Secrets” crooner.
“They are very excited about this movie, if that’s what you ask,” Jolie said with a smile, glancing at her co-star Salma.
“They are very excited about this movie,” she repeated.
The “Maleficent” star, 46, and The Weeknd, 31, have been spotted at several dinner parties in Los Angeles in recent months, sparking rumors the couple are in love.
In September, Jolie arrived separately from the “Blinding Lights” singer at Giorgio Baldi’s in Santa Monica, California; However, after a few hours inside, they were photographed leaving together.
Giorgio Baldi appears to be a favorite dining spot for the Hollywood duo, as it was also the setting for their very first sighting together in June.
The duo haven’t participated in any PDAs, so the nature of their relationship remains unclear, but a source told Page Six they were simply colleagues.
“They are clearly not trying to hide [the dinner date] The insider told us. “He’s definitely focused on getting into the movie industry. He has the new HBO series he’s playing in.
The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, is expected to co-write and star in the new HBO series “The Idol”, which he co-created with Reza Fahim and “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson. He has already appeared in “Uncut Gems” with Adam Sandler.
Jolie is in the midst of a bitter custody battle with ex-husband Brad Pitt, while The Weeknd dated Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez.
