It’s just been over a year since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie broke up, and the Hollywood heartthrob has allegedly moved on to a younger version of his estranged wife. According to reports, the 53-year-old actor is dating Ella Purnell, who has a striking resemblance to the 42-year-old actress. In fact, her looks helped her in getting the role of playing the younger version of Angelina’s character in Maleficent.
While some fans were thrilled to see Pitt dating a younger Jolie, sources claimed that the dating rumors are not true. An insider told Hollywood Life that Brad is not dating Ella, but he allegedly admires her work. Everyone around him is reportedly saying that there is no truth to his romance to the 21-year-old actress. It seems that Angelina has nothing to worry about since the mother of six was reportedly not thrilled about her estranged husband’s interest on her former co-star.
“The girl is so young, she’s barely in her twenties for heaven’s sake. She’s been assured by a number of people that there’s nothing to the rumors but it’s still got her pretty upset,” a source revealed. “The age gap is the biggest factor. She’d be incredibly disappointed in Brad if he went down that road.”
The dating rumors started when Pitt helped Purnell land a role in the TV adaptation of the novel Sweetbitter. An insider told InTouch that Brad went out of his way to cast Ella, and she was allegedly flattered by the attention that she’s getting from the Hollywood superstar. The British beauty has reportedly told her friends that he is her number one celebrity crush.
Ever since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie broke up, the Fight Club star has been romantically linked to several women including Sienna Miller and Elle Macpherson. There were reports that the actor was spotted getting cozy with 53-year-old model in Hollywood. She also ended her four-year marriage to billionaire Jeffrey Soffer a couple of months ago.
However, a source told PEOPLE that Brad is not dating Aussie model Elle and he wasn’t even in the country when this so-called date took place. Pitt was also linked to Miller when they were spotted together at a cast dinner in Los Angeles. The 35-year-old actress starred in The Lost City of Z, which was produced by Angelina’s estranged husband.
Brad and Sienna were also seen at the Glastonbury music festival in the United Kingdom, but they were joined by other famous celebrities, including Bradley Cooper. An insider claimed that they were part of a group and the Hangover star was their mutual friend.
Brad Pitt reportedly doesn’t have a girlfriend right now, which is probably good news for Angelina Jolie. However, he is dating a bit, but he is not looking for anything serious. The actor allegedly only goes out to meet other people and socialize.
