A source told website RadarOnline: "Angelina reached out to Ann Curry after she was fired from her gig on the TODAY show and was very clear, if ANY news program from NBC wants an interview with her, or Brad, Ann will be the only one to do it.
Apparently Angelina developed a relationship with the reporter after viewing her humanitarian efforts.
The insider continued: "Angelina has tremendous respect for Ann because of the work she has done on bringing awareness to Darfur.
Ann has developed a professional relationship with Angelina and Brad, and they trust her implicitly because of her integrity. Their working relationship has developed into a friendship, and it meant the world to Ann that Angelina had reached out to her.
As Angelina doesn't have a publicist, she hand picks who she does press with.
The source added: "Angelina told Brad he should let Ann interview him for all of his work in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and Brad feels the same way about Ann that Angie does."
