Brad Pitt reportedly would not be surprised if Angelina Jolie and Jared Leto start dating each other. The 53-year-old actor allegedly knew the two had feelings for each other.

Jolie and Leto first met back in 1999 and worked together on Alexander in 2004. According to sources, the two had a brief fling before she met Pitt on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith.

A source told Hollywood Life: "Angelina [Jolie] and Brad [Pitt] fought about Jared [Leto] a lot over the years, he was someone Brad was really threatened by. Brad always felt like he couldn't trust Angelina when it came to Jared."

"Angelina knew Jared was a sore spot with Brad, so anytime she wanted to push his buttons she'd bring up Jared and talked about how much she loved working with him and how talented he is. She even sent him a script behind Brad's back a couple of years ago," the insider added.

Brangelina fans around the world were shocked after Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on 19 September 2016 citing irreconcilable differences.

Meanwhile, Marion Cotillard was also blamed for the couple's separation. The French actress and Pitt had worked together in the spy thriller Allied, and unfortunately, the Macbeth star's name was dragged into their split.

In an interview on The Today Show, the pregnant actress responded to rumours that they were having an affair. She said: "I never take anything personally when it doesn't concern me. So I didn't take it personally because I had nothing to do with those rumors or situation... I don't give energy to this."
