Post-Billy Bob Thornton, Angelina Jolie was on the prowl
Former Access Hollywood and The Insider host Pat O'Brien has a juicy new memoir out that's going to be a must-read for any Hollywood fan. I'll Be Right Back After This covers some of his juiciest stories when he was covering the celebrity beat.
The Daily Mail obtained excerpts from his new memoir where he dished about his encounter with Angelina Jolie at the swanky L'Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills. He claims that in 2002, after her split with husband Billy Bob Thornton, she was on the prowl.
He wrote, "I said, 'What's up, baby?' And she said with a wink, 'I'm trying to find this guy I kind of know because I'm really horny right now.'"
O'Brien had interviewed The Changeling star several times before, so they had a familiarity with each other. He said in the book, "I joked that she had my number and we laughed."
She wasn't the only family member he had a run-in with. That same year, the entertainment reporter interviewed Jolie's estranged dad, Jon Voight, on Access Hollywood. At the time, the actor was claiming that his daughter had "serious mental problems."
O'Brien alleges that he met with the star for coffee later where he asked for his help in reconciling with Jolie.
O'Brien wrote that Voight said, "I want to talk to you about my daughter. I'm brokenhearted. That's the reason I'm here. I feel I can trust you as a journalist."
The author added his two cents on the way Voight went about it. "If Voight felt that he was going to win his daughter back by this TV confessional, he was sadly mistaken."
The two eventually went on to reconcile without the host's help. There's no word on what father and daughter think about O'Brien's tale, but it's definitely going to be a hot read.
