46-year-old Jolie was promoting the film with co-star Salma Hayek on US daytime talk show E! Daily Pop, when host Justin Sylvester asked whether her children were more excited by her role in Eternals or by her friendship with The Weeknd.
She however gave a frosty response even though they’ve been spotted out together. Jolie awkwardly replied: “They’re very excited about this film… If that’s what you’re asking,” she said as she looked as her co-star Salma. She added in a quieter tone: “They’re very excited about this film.”
While Angelina and The Weeknd who have been seen dining several times this year have reportedly told their pals they are “just friends”, insiders think they are having a romance.
A source told Us Weekly :
“Both Angie and Abel are telling people that they are just friends, but those who know them think something romantic is going on.
“She’s definitely warming toward Abel. He’s been pouring on the charm and going out of his way to impress her.”
Jolie has been linked to several other men since splitting from her ex-husband Brad Pitt in 2016. She was also spotted with another ex-husband, Jonny Lee Miller in recent months.
