Social media has been buzzing over rumors that Brad Pitt is moving on with actress Ella Purnell a year after his split from Angelina Jolie. Is it possible that the 53-year-old actor is interested in dating the 21-year-old Jolie look-a-like?
A source at Hollywood Life says that none of it is true. Pitt does admire Purnell’s work, and she is obviously a beautiful girl, but reports of them dating are false. Sorry to disappoint you internet, but Pitt hasn’t found new love yet.
It was just last week when reports surfaced that Pitt was “enchanted” by Purnell and that he went out of his way to hire her for the new Starz series Sweetbitter, which Pitt’s company Plan B is producing. The actress looks so much like Jolie that she played a teenage version of her in Maleficent.
Are sparks really flying between these two?!https://t.co/vKkVBz8h04

Even though Pitt is a fan of Purnell’s acting ability, that’s where the admiration ends. They have no future as a couple.
Along with the rumors that Pitt and Purnell were a possible item, were stories that Jolie was not happy that her ex could be dating someone so much younger. The 32-year age difference troubled the Girl, Interrupted star, and she didn’t like that Purnell was only five years older than their son Maddox.
However, even if Pitt isn’t dating Purnell, a source close to the Oscar-winner says the simple fact that he is ready to find someone new bothers Jolie since she is not ready.
Over the weekend, Jolie walked the red carpet at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatre for the Los Angeles premiere of The Breadwinner, the animated feature that she helped produce, and it looked like the stress from her divorce is having some effects.
According to Enstarz, the actress appeared to have lost a substantial amount of weight, and looked extremely thin.

The mom of six posed for pictures with her daughters Zahara and Shiloh before watching the film, and she looked frail in her long-sleeved white dress.
Jolie has just started making public appearances again over the last few weeks. She had taken a year off after she announced her split from Brad Pitt in September of last year to focus on healing and taking care of her children.
