Take That, Matt: Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Will Only Do Interview with Ann Curry on 'Today'
Angelina Jolie Supports Ann Curry After Being Fired from 'Today'
Looks like Ann Curry has Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in her corner.
Jolie is only interested in doing a Today show interview with Curry, whom, you may recall, was relieved of her duties as co-host recently.
Take that, Matt Lauer.
Curry, who's conducted several interviews with the altruistic power couple in the past, must have formed a pretty solid relationship them.
RadarOnline reports that Jolie is loyal to her pal Ann, reaching out to Curry after she was fired, "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," according to a source.
In other words, she has no desire to have a sit-down with Lauer or with Curry's replacement, Savannah Guthrie.
The source adds, "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."
That means that Curry could get an exclusive interview with Brangelina when their big wedding day finally comes.
On her end, the source says, "it meant the world to Ann that Angelina had reached out to her. Angelina made it clear to Ann that no one from the current TODAY show cast would get an interview with Angelina or Brad, and with rumors of an upcoming wedding for the couple, NBC will lose any interviews with the actors in the future if Ann isn't allowed to do it."
Major score for Curry!
