Pierce Brosnan Puts Charlize Theron in Jolie’s Sites

Looks like Angelina Jolie‘s bag-of-bones physique isn’t the only thing keeping her from signing on for the upcoming Thomas Crown Affair sequel.

Crown star Pierce Brosnan tells People magazine that he’d prefer to make screen time with Charlize Theron instead of Brad Pitt‘s lady.

“Charlize Theron is someone who I’ve always admired. I think she’s someone who has acquitted herself grandly,” the Disney-lovin’ former James Bond says. “Nothing against Angelina Jolie. I think she’s a magnificent actress. But Charlize has an inner strength and femininity which I really like to watch.”

Uh-oh; maybe the South African-born actress and World’s Leading Authority on Everything should consider hiring on extra bodyguards. Angelina Jolie has no qualms about avenging perceived wrongs, and she has a pretty rough-and-tumble posse to back her up.

Brosnan might do well to proceed with caution as well; Charlize might be a joy to watch, but she has a reputation for being a little flaky.
