It has been a year and a half since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, and a new report claims she finally has her eye on a new man. Could hottie Garrett Hedlund be the perfect match for the 42-year-old single mom?
According to Radar, Jolie and Hedlund have had chemistry since she cast him in the 2014 film Unbroken, which Jolie directed, and now she is enjoying the 33-year-old’s attention.
“It’s gone from exchanging the odd email to texting several times a day and planning to meet up for dinner,” revealed the source. “It’s Garrett who’s making all the moves!”
The insider went on to say that Jolie has told friends she is interested in a fling with the younger, hotter version of Pitt because it would be the ultimate revenge romance.
Ironically, Hedlund’s first film role was with Pitt in the 2004 flick Troy.
As for Pitt, sources say that the actor is in a better place and is happy and healthy after going through a dark time during his separation from Jolie. He now seems excited about life and is starting to venture back into the spotlight after keeping a low profile since the split.
The 54-year-old showed up at a pre-Oscar party that talent management firm Gersh Agency threw a few days before the awards show, where he mingled with Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney.
Pitt is also getting back in front of the camera and will star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which is about the 1969 Manson Family murders.
DiCaprio will play the role of Rick Dalton, the former star of a TV western, and Pitt will play Cliff Booth, Dalton’s longtime stunt double. In the film, Dalton lives next door to Sharon Tate, the actress that the cult leader and his followers brutally killed.
Even though Jolie is moving on with her love life and Pitt is keeping himself busy with work, their divorce and custody battle continues to drag on. At the beginning of the year, it looked like the former couple was close to reaching an agreement, but Jolie changed her mind and demanded more time to hash things out.

Both Pitt and Jolie then requested an extension for the temporary judge on the case, and the courts granted it until December 31st, which means it could be close to another year before the situation gets resolved.
In the meantime, Jolie has taken the couple’s six kids to England for the spring and summer, so she can teach classes at the London School of Economics and shoot Maleficent 2.
Pitt was hoping to spend some quality time with the children this summer, but it looks like for him to do so, he is going to have to travel to another continent.
Angelina Jolie has not commented on the rumors surrounding her love life.
