Eunice Huthart, who has been Jolie’s stunt double in several movies, including “Smith,” is suing New Corp, claiming reporters from its tabloids The Sun and News of the World hacked her phone in order to run stories about the budding relationship between Jolie and Pitt in 2004 and 2005, reports Reuters.
One such message has Jolie saying she is checked into a hotel under the pseudonym “Pocahontas,” which is kind of funny, since Pitt’s character in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” is named “John Smith,” the man who has been turned into a Romeo to Pocahontas’ Juliet in romanticized versions of the Native American story.
Huthart is the godmother to Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the eldest of Jolie and Pitt’s biological children. She is seeking unspecified damages in the lawsuit
This is the first time the News of the World phone hacking scandal has really come into the forefront in the United States, though phone hacking lawsuits have been taking place in Britain against News Corp for several years.
