Star magazine claims that 53-year-old Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence, who is 26 years his junior are now dating.
According to a source for the publication: “Brad and Jennifer have been enjoying lots of late nights together. There’s an intense connection between them!”
You probably think this is massive news, but it’s not necessarily true. Some sources close to the actor told The Sun that the two are not together and also not dating.
“These are completely false reports,” the insider explained.

Even though we are caught between two fires and don’t know exactly what to believe, one thing is for sure: Jennifer and her director boyfriend, 48-year-old Darren Aronofsky are definitely not together anymore.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the pair broke up a month ago. The acclaimed and controversial filmmaker last directed the movie Mother! where Jennifer starred. Their romance sparked while they were working on the project and their relationship reportedly lasted for about a year.
The Oscar-winning actress has given the director nothing but praise when she told ET Online in September: “He’s just brilliant. Incredibly instinctual.”
Darren had his own plethora of compliments: “I don’t know what makes her great – maybe it was her parents, maybe it was the Kentucky water. I have no idea, but she’s, like, a once-in-a-generation talent, and just a whirlwind and a hurricane and an earthquake and a thunderstorm of talent.”
According to the Black Swan director, there was absolutely no friction between their personal and professional relationship: “She’s the type of actor that turns off all the intensity when she’s not shooting, and then flips it on when she needs it. And so, in between action and cut, she’s the character, and then when you call ‘cut’, she’s Jennifer Lawrence again.”
Lawrence also spoke about her private life, admitting that when nude pictures on her phone were leaked to the public, she felt “violated”.

While speaking on Hollywood Reporter‘s Awards Chatter podcast, she said:
“When I first found out it was happening, my security reached out to me. It was happening minute to minute. It was almost like a ransom situation where they were releasing new ones every hour or so. I feel like I got gang-banged by the fucking planet. Like, there’s not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me. You can just be at a barbecue and somebody can just pull them up on their phone. That was a really impossible thing to process.”
The Kentucky-born star also revealed:
“A lot of women were affected, and a lot of them reached out to me about suing Apple or suing others – and none of that was gonna really bring me peace, none of that was gonna bring my nude body back to me.”
