News came to us earlier that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were planning on meeting none other than the Pope at the end of this month but, in an unusual turn of events Angie pulled a fast one on us, ditched Brad and met up with Pope Francis TODAY. How sneaky...
Yep; the movie star-turned-director — who married Brad back in August 2014 after being in a relationship for 10 years — made a VIP trip via a jet bound for Rome to have an audience with Pope Francis where he also had a preview screening of her latest film, Unbroken. Talk about having friends in high places, huh?
While she and Brad may consider themselves non-religious but they are said to 'admire the Pope' and hearld his more tolerant message and openness to different ways of life.
Ok, so we don't want things to get heavy but in the name of context, 51-year-old Brad has continually spoken out about his religious beliefs in the past having grown up Baptist but later distanced himself from his faith, saying: 'I don't have a great relationship with religion. I oscillate between agnosticism and atheism.'
Regardless of this, we're sure the Pope has many accolades for the couple who continually campaign for charities and those less fortunate than themselves, with 39-year-old Angelina spearheading their involvement with many global organisations and causes thanks to her role as a UN Ambassador.
No matter how high-profile Ange may be on the celeb circuit, we're sure she was just as excited to meet someone this influential as we were to see these photographs documenting their meeting.
Angelina meets the Pope. We definitely didn't think we'd be writing about this today...
