Angelina Jolie Poses with Alex Thomas-Smith from 'Dear Evan Hansen' Who Showed off Arm Tattoo of Her Face

Over the weekend, Angelina Jolie, 44, got a surprise when she met a fellow actor who had a particular tattoo done on one of his arms. The young actor took to social media to share the experience.

“Dear Evan Hansen” cast member Alex Thomas-Smith couldn’t help but share his star-struck moment when he met Jolie. In the photos, the young actor showed off a large tattoo of Jolie on his left arm.

The images showed how the actress reacted to seeing the artwork. In the piece, Jolie was drawn with a cigarette in her mouth.

“SHE LOVED IT, SHE SIGNED IT”

She was pictured while laughing ecstatically at the tattoo before having a chance to take a closer look. Jolie posed with Thomas-Smith for photos while attending his production at London’s West End.

The young actor captioned his Instagram post writing:

“Today in WHAT IS MY LIFE, the beautiful Angelina Jolie came to Dear Evan Hansen. I showed her my tattoo of her, done by the wonderful @courtneylloydtattoos and she loved it, SIGNED IT, kissed me on the cheek and said she would be back to see my Evan show.”

ACTOR WANTS TO TATTOO JOLIE’S SIGNATURE

Thomas-Smith joked that he’d “never recover” from the experience. Fans who responded to the post suggested he get the autographed tattooed too.

He happily revealed that was what he intended to do.

JOLIE’S “TIME” PERSONAL ESSAY

Back in October, Jolie played the role of contributing editor for “TIME” magazine's new Health Innovation issue where she wrote a personal essay. In it, the star opened up about how she was affected by cancer.

She wrote about the advances made in breast cancer research and treatment. The actress shared how she felt they should be accompanied by more thought for the safety, dignity, and care of women.

MEASURES SHE TOOK TO AVOID CANCER

Jolie's mother, grandmother, and aunt all died of cancer. In 2013, she underwent a preventive double mastectomy before undergoing another procedure.

Women typically have a 13% risk of developing #breastcancer over their lifetime. "I had an estimated 87% risk of developing the disease and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer. Because of my high risk, experts recommended preventive surgeries," writes Angelina Jolie, a TIME contributing editor, an Academy Award-winning actor and Special Envoy of the U.N. High Commissioner for @Refugees. Jolie lost her grandmother and mother to breast cancer. "I had a double mastectomy and later removed my ovaries and fallopian tubes, significantly reducing, although not removing altogether, my risk of developing cancer. In the years since my surgeries, there has been further progress. #Technology and #science are converging in ways that will bring discoveries to clinics—and into our homes—at the most rapid pace in human #history. What I’ve come to understand, as I’ve reflected on my own experiences and those of others I’ve met, is that while we should continue to push for advancement, care is not just about medical treatments. It’s also about the safety, dignity and support afforded to #women, whether they’re battling cancer or trying to manage other stressful situations. And far too often they’re not given nearly enough."
