Seems like Brad Pitt can’t keep his mind off ex-wife Angelina Jolie. Rumors have it that he is going out with a woman who played Angelina’s younger self in Maleficent. I can imagine how awkward that could be.
After a divorce it is pretty clear that you don’t date your ex’s co-worker. But Brad Pitt changes all the rules if he has to. He is so “enchanted” by British actress Ella Purnell, he has cast her in the upcoming series of Sweetbitter.
Purnell is 32 years younger than Pitt and she was the one who portrayed the younger Angelina Jolie in the 214 Disney film. Hollywood Gossip reports that according to an insider, Angelina is very angered by the revelation. Can you really blame her?
“She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film.”
Turns out that Pitt first came upon Ella in the 2016 film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
In other Pitt news it was revealed that he confronted shamed Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein after he allegedly attacked his then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow.
Paltrow also claimed in an interview with New York Times that she had been a victim of Weinstein’s sexual harassment when she was only 22 years old. She said that he put his hands on her trying to convince her to come into his room for a joint massage at the Peninsula Hotel. After she told Pitt, he confronted the producer the following week at a party.
