ANGELINA JOLIE has found herself at the centre of a rent scam controversy in Hungary after a security guard allegedly conned the star out of $2,750 to let her film in a building he didn't own.
The Hollywood actress is currently shooting an as-yet-untitled Bosnian war drama in the country and had reportedly scouted out a warehouse in Budapest to use in the production.
She negotiated a fee with the onsite guard, who had posed as the property owner, and handed over the sum – only to discover the lease was illegal.
One of the warehouse owners tells AFP, "My partner called to ask if I knew about a film shoot in our building. And he said, 'You'll never guess (which star is involved) – it's Angelina Jolie!'
"(The guard) thought we wouldn't find out about it, because we hardly ever go to the building."
It's the second scandal to hit Jolie's project – she recently won back permission to film in Bosnia following confusion about the movie's plot.
The film will tell the story of a Serbian man and Bosnian woman who fall in love during the middle of the Bosnian war.
