Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will give “Today” an interview on the condition that Ann Curry be the one to do it. Angelina reached out to Curry when she was fired from the morning news program. She and Brad are fond of the former news anchor for her efforts in bringing awareness to Darfur.
A source who knows the relationship between Curry and the A-list couple spoke with RadarOnline about Angelina Jolie’s demands for NBC if they want an interview from her or Brad Pitt in the future.
“Angelina has tremendous respect for Ann because of the work she has done on bringing awareness to Darfur,” the source said. “Ann has developed a professional relationship with Angelina and Brad, and they trust her implicitly because of her integrity. Their working relationship has developed into a friendship, and 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 actorsin the future if Ann isn’t allowed to do it.”
Matt Lauer is blamed by several producers “Today” has had over the years for Ann Curry’s firing, another source informed Radar previously. She was well respected by cameramen and staffers as well. The exchange between Lauer and Curry during the final days of the Olympic Games in London was tense, to say the least. Angelina and Brad are aware of what Curry has been through at NBC and she has their full support.
Angelina even told Brad he should have Curry interview him for his work in helping people recover from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
The source added, “Angelina told Brad he should let Ann interview him for all of his work in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and Brad feels the same way about Ann that Angie does.”
Will NBC make an exception by allowing Ann Curry to interview Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in the near future?
