Adam Brody says he hooked up Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

New York: Adam Brody has taken the credit for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s romance, as he claims that he was the one who “hooked” them up.

‘The O.C.’ star jokes that he was the one responsible for setting up the power couple on the set of ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.’

Brody played Benjamin “The Tank” Danz in the 2005 action film, a prisoner both Pitt and Jolie’s assassin characters are tasked with killing.

“[Brad and Angelina], I hooked them up,” the New York Post quoted Brody as telling The Huffington Post.

“I was like, ‘Brad, you don’t want to do this, man. This Jen thing, I don’t see it.’ And he heeded my advice, and I’m happy for him,” he said.

The couple has admitted that they fell in love on set, but denied committing adultery.

While filming ‘Mr and Mrs. Smith’, Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston.

However, six months before the movie’s release the two announced their split. Pitt was quickly linked to Jolie. The two have since confessed that they “fell in love” while making the movie.
