Although nominated for favorite onscreen chemistry, those sexy "Mr. and Mrs Smith" stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt didn’t show up at the People’s Choice Awards Tuesday night.
Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn won the category for “The Wedding Crashers,” in case you care, and only Wilson showed up.
But turns out Brad and Angie had way better chemistry than Wilson and Vaughn.
According to People magazine’s just released report, Jolie is indeed pregnant with Pitt’s child and is expecting this summer. The mag sez she told a charity worker in the Dominican Republic, where she’s filming “The Good Shepherd,” the story of the CIA as told through the eyes of one of its founders James Wilson (played by Pitt’s “Ocean’s 11” pal Matt Damon. Jolie plays Wilson’s wive, Clover.
People reports that both star’s camps have confirmed the baby news, which certainly explains the actress’ recently reported fainting spells and those tummy-hiding tops she’s been wearing, including the black cashmere poncho she sported at the December special screening of “Munich” in Beverly Hills.
It also explains why St. John rushed to shoot Jolie’s new ad campaign for the fashion house in Miami Beach last winter, before she started to show. Wonder if they’re planning a maternity line now?
Seems like only yesterday — okay, last year — that the two stars were staunchly denying reports of their on-set romance, claiming to be just friends, which of course, no one really believed anyway.
Sadly, this baby news means Jolie may skip the big 2006 awards season. Unless, of course, Marc Bouwer, who designed Jolie’s classic white satin halter gown for the 77th Annual Academy Awards, is whipping up a sexy maternity frock for our favorite film femme fatale.
