Angelina Jolie is extremely worried about history repeating itself, which explains why she had reportedly banned Brad Pitt from doing love scenes with other actresses. Brad has shied away from taking raunchy roles since he met Angelina, which is reflected in his filmography.
Even though he was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, he clearly had no compunctions in taking the Mr. & Mrs. Smith role, which he knew would require him to get naked and have sexy times with Angelina. But now? He just continues to make movies like Moneyball, Fury, and 12 Years a Slave – all Oscar bait movies, and with very little romance in them.
A ‘source’ adds, “Angelina has forbidden Brad to do love scenes on camera with any other woman except her. She’s told him that she just doesn’t think it’s appropriate anymore.”
Yes, he’s also all ‘serious’ actor and producer now, and Angelina’s also gunning for awards glory. Perhaps his roles also reflect his desire to be taken seriously, which, unfortunately, doesn’t happen when the Academy still views you as a heartthrob and sees you in sex scenes every other movie. It might be unfair and judgy, but hey, that’s the Academy for you.
That doesn’t mean NO sex scenes for Brad or Angelina, by the way. Angelina still gets to have love scenes, as she did with Johnny Depp in 2010’s The Tourist. So is this a double standard? Angelina’s worried about Brad cheating on her, but the concern doesn’t exist vice-versa? Seems a bit ridiculous to me, but maybe Angelina’s just more trustworthy than Brad – or maybe Brad’s just too high to care.
Besides, they’ll be engaging in plenty of love scenes for their new movie, By The Sea, in which they’ll be playing a married couple.
