Jose Mourinho was left "lost for words" after a chance meeting with Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston , according to sensational claims in a new book.
The Special One was on a pre-season tour with Chelsea in the United States during his first tenure as Blues boss when the pair's paths reportedly crossed at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Sunset Boulevard.
Rob Beasley, the author of upcoming book 'Jose Mourinho: Up Close and Personal', claims to have been with the Manchester United manager at the time.
An extract from the book, currently being serialised in the Daily Mail , says: "I was sitting with Mourinho, who was telling me about his disastrous summer holiday to Brazil.
"But suddenly Jose's holiday tales were stopped in their tracks. Not only that, but the whole Chelsea contingent fell into an immediate silence. Startled eyes stared, jaws dropped and every man there was rendered immobile.
"That's the effect Jennifer Aniston had."
Aniston had been dumped by Brad Pitt just a year earlier, as the Fight Club star began his relationship with Angelina Jolie.
"F***ing hell, Brad Pitt — what a w*****!" Mourinho is said to have uttered. "Jennifer Aniston one, Angelina Jolie nil."
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt earlier this week after twelve years together, leaving fans stunned.
