PICS: SA YouTube star violently attacks journalist over Angelina rumours

2015-05-22 08:18

Cape Town – On 18 May at 22:00 Channel24 published a reliable article that confirmed Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are best friends.

A mere day later Anne Hirsh - SA YouTube star who claims to be Angelina's only best friend - tweeted Channel24, outraged at the allegations made about Angelina and Charlize.

As you know Anne is allegedly Angelina’s dearest friend from South Africa and while her friendship has now been confirmed to be tight, Angie’s adventurous side seemed to have found a new friend.

Adamant to right the wrong Anne Hirsch sat down with Channel24 in an exclusive interview to reveal the truth behind Angelina and Charlize's alleged friendship.

This is what Anne had to say about it...

How are you dealing with Angie’s alleged new friendship?

"I just want to start off by saying I think it is incredibly brave of Channel24 to have come forward and make a public apology. Not enough publications do this sort of thing you know, when you are wrong you say ‘I'm sorry we made a mistake’ and I appreciate that so thank you.

"The friendship is not real, I think what has confused people is 'oh Angelina Jolie’s best friend is South African' and a less famous South African would then be Charlize Theron... is it Theron?"

We heard rumours that Angelina doesn’t call you that often anymore, is this true?

"You love a little rumour don’t you? That is absolutely not true! She’s been incredibly busy, they’re shopping for a new baby at the moment.

"We’re still in contact. We Skype and we often play soccer together, we knit…

"I was a bridesmaid at her wedding…

 "We also DJ together often and have spent time on ships together... you get the idea."

When did you last see or speak to Angelina?

"We’ve gone through this before, contractually I am not allowed to give away too much information because we do have a very high profile friendship.

"I did recently accompany her in her limousine to the Kids Teen Choice Awards, but I didn’t go in as I don’t like all award ceremonies.”

(Anne then lets us in on a secret)

"You heard this first, I will be hosting this year’s YOU Spectacular Awards again."

(Angelina won’t be attending as she is very busy)

"She [Angelina] is said to be directing the new Captain Marvel movie and that Cha.. Charneeze Theron? She might be acting in that film."

Have you met Charlize? How do the two of you get along?

"We haven’t met. Clearly she is very talented I mean I have nothing against her, she’s just an actress.”

We also recently heard that Angie took that picture of the two of you in her kitchen down, do you have any comment?

"Whe... Wha... Who is your source?!

"That is ridiculous information and I don’t know who is supplying this information to you!"

(At this point Anne gets angry)

"These wild allegations are just..."

(Anne grabs my notebook and starts hitting me)

After clearly upsetting Anne, the interview was brought to an immediate halt.

I have apologised and thankfully Anne found it in her heart to forgive me. No hard feelings.
