Rumors of the actors dating sparked in 2004 when they co-starred in Alexander alongside Colin Farrell, Rosario Dawson and Jared Leto. In 2017 he hinted at those rumors being true when he took to social media to write: “Once Angelina Jolie gave me a ride home on a jet. I surprised her by filling it w/gardenias. She'd also brought a French actor. He was mad.”

It appears Val confirmed those rumors as being true, which occurred a year after Angelina’s romance with Billy Bob Thornton ended, and one year before she began filming for Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt.
