Angelina Jolie showed her support for Ann Curry, saying she only grant interviews to the former ‘Today Show’ co-host.
Has Angelina Jolie given NBC an ultimatum about Ann Curry? Rumor has it the actress and her hunky future husband will not be doing any interviews with the peacock network unless the recently ousted Today host is asking the questions!
“Angelina reached out to Ann Curry after she was fired from her gig on the Today show and was very clear, if ANY news program from NBC wants an interview with her, or Brad, Ann will be the only one to do it,” a source told RadarOnline.
The timing of Angie’s Ann Curry ultimatum to NBC might spell trouble for the morning show. Not only are rumors she and Brad Pitt will tie the knot very soon in the wind, but the power couple have numerous upcoming films that will surely be big news. The actress is now filming Maleficent, while the actor has Killing Them Softly due out in October.
With much more gossip to gab, the source went on to explain: “Angelina has tremendous respect for Ann because of the work she has done on bringing awareness to Darfur. Ann has developed a professional relationship with Angelina and Brad, and they trust her implicitly because of her integrity. Their working relationship has developed into a friendship, and it meant the world to Ann that Angelina had reached out to her.
“Angelina doesn’t have a publicist, she never has, and she hand picks who she does press with. Angie doesn’t like how Ann has been treated by NBC… Angelina told Brad he should let Ann interview him for all of his work in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and Brad feels the same way about Ann that Angie does.”
