Today in unexpected celebrity friendship pairings: Angelina Jolie and Ellen Pompeo.
The actresses were photographed together on Wednesday in Beverly Hills, getting dinner at upscale Italian restaurant E Baldi. In a photo obtained by Entertainment Tonight, they can be seen wearing protective face masks at the restaurant’s outdoor seating area, with Jolie wearing a white long-sleeved dress with nude heels. Pompeo can be seen next to her, wearing an all-black outfit with boots.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Jolie and Pompeo are neighbors and friends, and that their daughters are good friends as well.
Jolie recently shared in an interview with British Vogue that she lives in a house formerly owned by Cecil B. DeMille, which she said made her feel “a little pressure moving in.”
“Like I had snuck into where DeMille and Chaplin would hang out,” she said. “I love most that there is no entertainment room, but lots of pathways and places to walk and think. I feel very fortunate we have that at this time.”
The house is also close to where Jolie’s ex Brad Pitt lives, a decision she said she made to keep their children near their father.
“I wanted it to be close to their dad, who is only five minutes away,” she said.
