Brad Pitt has slammed a magazine report of an alleged hotel tryst with Angelina Jolie, labelling the story "completely untrue".

American magazine US WEEKLY quoted various employees of a California hotel, claiming they had seen the Mr And Mrs Smith co-stars behaving romantically on the resort grounds.

The TROY star's publicist CINDY GUAGENTI says, "This particular story is completely untrue.

"Because these tabloids are making so much money, and yes, I consider Us Weekly a tabloid, they go to great lengths to corroborate their stories, whether they are true or not."

Pitt's estranged wife Jennifer Aniston filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court on 25 March (05).

However Us Weekly is standing by their story, saying, "Pitt has long denied stories involving his personal life, beginning with reports of trouble in his marriage to Jennifer Aniston prior to the separation. Multiple sources both on and off the record confirmed Pitt and Jolie were physically affectionate in public areas of the resort where they were staying."
