The Academy Award winner reportedly enjoyed a long lunch with billionaire David Mayer de Rothschild this week at a famed Malibu hotspot.

Jolie, 47, was snapped leaving the restaurant with the hunky environmentalist who is three years her junior.

Page Six snapped the pair lunching at a-list eatery Nobu, where they reportedly stayed for a whopping three hours.

Ange looked characteristically stylish for the occasion, in a sleek black dress and black pumps. Rothschild also dressed smart-casual in trousers, a blazer and lace-up shoes.

So who is Angelina’s mystery date?

Fascinatingly, Mayer de Rothschild is a member of one of Britain’s most elite families. Allegedly one of the richest families in the world, the Rothschilds are essentially European nobility and their wealth dates back to the 1700s. Seriously, there’s an entire Wikipedia page on them!

While Jolie and the six-foot-four Mayer de Rothschild do make a striking pair, there is a chance they were having a very pleasant, very long business lunch. 

Like Jolie, Mayer de Rothschild has an interest in activism and documentary making. He has a long history of eco-adventuring and raising awareness for climate change and other environmental issues.

David has produced a number of documentaries, including, Playground, about the child sex trafficking in the US, and Eco Trip: The Real Cost of Living about the environmental impacts of everyday household items.

His most recent documentary even has an Australian connection!

Titled Becoming Bond, the film tracks the casting journey of Aussie actor George Lazenby as famed British spy, James Bond.

Mayer de Rothschild is also a successful entrepreneur. He has founded multiple organisations, including Lost Explorer mezcal brand,  the World-Exposure agency, a marketing agency working to promote organisations with sustainable practices and interests, and Sculpt the Future, an environmental education initiative.

Ange’s dating life has been kept under wraps during her divorce and legal disputes with ex, Brad Pitt

Despite separating in 2016, the parents of six children are yet to finalise their divorce.
