Has Brad Pitt found a new crush? According to insiders, 21-year-old Sydney Sweeney caught Pitt’s eye while they were filming the new Quentin Tarantino flick Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, but it wasn’t just her talent that made a big impression.
Radar Online is reporting that Pitt has a thing for Sweeney, and “he’s been sweet on her” ever since they shot the movie. Because they had so many scenes together, Pitt had to sign-off on Sweeney’s casting. Sources say that she wowed both Pitt and Tarantino, and the actor wants to do more projects with her and get to know her better.

“They’ve spoken a few times since the movie wrapped on Nov. 1, 2018, and it’s been intensely friendly between them,” spilled an insider. “Nobody would be surprised if he asked her out on a date, even though there is that huge age difference.”
Yes, there is a huge difference. Pitt is 55, and If you think about it in terms of his career, Sweeney was born in 1997 when The Devil’s Own was in theaters – just two years after Seven and two years before Fight Club.
This is Hollywood, and 34-year age gaps aren’t unheard of. If Pitt and Sweeney do find love together, then good for them!
This news of a possible romance comes just two days after Pitt surprisingly showed up to his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston’s 50th birthday party.
Aniston celebrated the major milestone at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles, and the guest list was a who’s who of Hollywood.

In addition to Pitt, Aniston partied with George and Amal Clooney, Ellen DeGeneres, Barbra Streisand, Robert Downey Jr., Jason Bateman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Kate Hudson, and Reese Witherspoon.
It was Pitt’s appearance at the party that really shocked fans. But, even though Pitt left Aniston for Angelina Jolie over a decade ago, the two have “been friendly” for years, and Pitt wanted to attend the party as a show of support for his ex.
Insiders say that Aniston and Pitt didn’t have much interaction at the event. They talked for a moment, shared a hug, and then Brad Pitt left early.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will hit theaters on July 26, 2019.
