The King and Queen of Hollywood are set to meet another titled leader – the Pope, reports Us Weekly. The couple will reportedly visit the Vatican early this month for a “VIP meet-and-greet” with Pope Francis.

Pitt grew up Baptist but told the Hollywood Reporter in 2012, “I don’t have a great relationship with religion. I oscillate between agnosticism and atheism.”

But a friend tells the magazine that the glamorous couple “admire the Pope” and like his message of tolerance and non-judgement. In 2013 talking about homosexuality the Pope famously said, “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?”

According to the source the couple’s head of security has gone to Rome to iron out the details of the visit. 

Meanwhile Jolie is recovering from a bout of chicken pox that kept her from promoting her movie, “Unbroken.” Pitt was last seen at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
