Someone get Angelina Jolie and Pat O’Brien a room. Preferably one in the L’Ermitage!
The veteran talk show host claimed he and the Oscar winner had a chance encounter in the elevator at the swanky Beverly Hills hotel in 2002 shortly after her split from ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton.
“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,’” Pat recalled in his memoir, I’ll Be Right Back After This.
“I joked that she had my number and we laughed.”
The two had met many times before, as he had interviewed her in the past for Entertainment Tonight and The Insider.
At the time, Pat was happily married to his wife (who he has since divorced) and Brad Pitt was in wedded bliss with Jennifer Aniston—which means Pat really could’ve been the one that got away!
