Looks like it’s a double dose of “I dos!” On the heels of the announcement of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s secret Aug. 23 wedding, comes the news that Jolie’s ex-girlfriend, model and actress Jenny Shimizu, also got married last week. On Wednesday, Us Weekly posted a pic from Shimizu’s wedding to socialite Michelle Harper. The photo features Harper sporting a full-skirted Oliver Theysken wedding gown.
But before she met Harper, Shimizu made headlines for her relationships with a few other famous females. Shimizu first met Angelina Jolie the set of their 1996 film “Foxfire,” and the Oscar winner later dished that she fell in love with the Japanese-American model, who made her debut in an androgynous 1994 black and white Calvin Klein fragrance ad, “the first second” she saw her. Jolie later told “20/20” host Barbara Walters that she was surprised that she found herself having such strong feelings for a woman.
In case you forgot that Jolie once had a lesbian lover, the relationship came in 1998, after her marriage to Jonny Lee Miller, but before her marriage to Billy Bob Thornton. But when later asked about her high profile relationship with Jolie, Shimizu played coy. In 2010 she laughed and told The Seattle Lesbian, “No, it never happened. It’s never happened…I have no idea what you are talking about.”
That same year, Shimizu refused to comment on her much publicized relationships with Jolie and another famous icon (that would be Madonna), telling Out magazine, “I just don't want to go there. I think it's tacky.”
As for the ex-lovers’ recent weddings to other people, Jolie wore a white floor-length antique lace and silk Atelier Versace dress for her wedding to Pitt, while Harpers Bazaar revealed that Shimizu sported a tuxedo for her walk down the aisle with Harper.
