Jolie denies Pitt romance reports

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has denied reports she is romantically involved with actor Brad Pitt.

"Absolutely not," she told Marie Claire magazine when asked if she was seeing her Mr and Mrs Smith co-star.

"To be intimate with a married man is not something I could forgive. I could not, could not look at myself in the morning if I did that," she said.

Jolie, 30, said she is "not dating anybody", though she does admit to having "intimate friendships".

Speculation has surrounded the pair since Pitt, 41, separated from his wife, Friends star Jennifer Aniston earlier this year, after four years of marriage.

At the time, both Aniston and Pitt denied the break-up was the result of any "tabloid speculation".

But rumours of the affair were revived in March following Aniston's application for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

Last month tabloids ran photographs of Jolie and Pitt on a beach in Africa, while Us Weekly ran an article quoting employees at a California hotel who claimed they saw the pair being "physically affectionate" while staying at the resort.

Pitt's publicist said rumours of a romance with co-star Jolie were "completely untrue".

Twice-married Jolie told Marie Claire magazine that her adopted son Maddox would have the final word on her next suitor.

"I think the next man I get involved with would have to become Mad's father, and that's a high bar as far as I'm concerned.

"I'm not anticipating that coming any time soon."

Mr and Mrs Smith, a spy adventure about a married couple who are both undercover assassins, opens in the US and UK on 10 June.
