Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Divorce: Biographer Offers New Perspective

In the wake of the divorce bombshell featuring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the actress’ biographer revealed what happened inside the walls of their prestigious mansions. The soap opera-style saga includes Jolie’s desire for an “open marriage,” as well as her secret crush on actor Johnny Depp.

The author of Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography, Andrew Morton revealed to Inside Edition that Jolie wanted an open marriage, and was crushing on Depp for many years. With her longing for an open marriage not succeeding and her divorce from Pitt underway, Angelina has taken steps to cut her estranged husband out of her life, according to Morton.

“The latest word is that Angelina’s deleted Brad from her mobile phone as a sign of how much he’s been frozen out.”

But one person in Jolie’s life, her brother James, is attempting to prevent the divorce.

“I’m hearing that Jamie, Angie’s brother is making quiet attempts to effect a reconciliation,” revealed Morton. “He’s the one man on the planet who has her trust, her complete trust.”

When it comes to that crush on Depp, Johnny and Angelina co-starred in 2010’s The Tourist, which was nominated for a Golden Globe.

“Members of her family and friends have said she has always had a crush on Johnny Depp,” said Morton.

That leads to the question of whether Jolie will follow through on her crush and hook up with Depp after the divorce is finalized.

Johnny just went through his own messy divorce from Amber Heard, and She Knows cites a source who revealed that Jolie is now finding comfort in her old buddy Depp.

Leading man Johnny and Angelina have much in common, from their previous relationship as movie co-stars to knowing what it is like to go through a breakup under the heat of the public spotlight. But the insider cited by She Knows revealed that the actor’s pals believe that Depp and Jolie will ignite a romantic relationship soon.

“All of Johnny’s friends are expecting things to turn romantic between him and Angelina sooner than later.”

In addition to predicting that romance will bloom between Depp and Angelina in the near future, the source revealed that the two have something of a mutual fan club going on.

“She’s admitted to him that [she] had a crush on him since his 21 Jump Street days when they shot The Tourist together,” shared the insider. “He told her she [was] one of the most beautiful women he’d ever seen.”

In terms of any sort of canoodling or make out sessions, the source revealed that even though they have their painful divorces in common, the two have not yet taken their relationship to the next level and gotten physical.

“Nothing physical happened, but it’s been like a pressure cooker between them.”

Looking into the future, the insider predicts that Johnny’s and Jolie’s mutual suffering will soon turn into a hot affair.

“Now they’re both single, in dire pain and going to each other for support,” added the source. “It’s just a matter of time before they are in bed together. Do the math!”

In an ironic twist that sounds like a Hollywood movie, Johnny is now considering the possibility of starring in a movie that Angelina just rejected. Pointing out that the world came oh-so-close to a reunion of Depp and Jolie, Vanity Fair revealed that Johnny is in talks to climb aboard the Orient Express.

Last month, Angelina decided to step off Murder on the Orient Express, a Kenneth Branagh adaptation of the Agatha Christie mystery novel. Now, Depp is contemplating the possibility of hopping on board in the role of the murder victim, Ratchett.

The all-star cast thus far includes Branagh as detective Poirot, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Judi Dench and Michael Peña. The role that Jolie was going to portray has gone to Pfieffer. As for hopes that Angelina might change her mind and become a passenger on the Orient Express, the “last call” train whistle has not yet sounded.
