Brad Pitt is NOT dating Angelina Jolie lookalike, Ella Purnell, 21, after being linked to the Brit actress in his new TV series
BRAD Pitt is NOT dating British actress Ella Purnell.
The A-list actor was linked to the 21-year-old earlier this week after American magazine InTouch claimed they were an item.
However a source close to Brad, 53, has insisted this is not the case, saying: “Brad Pitt is absolutely not dating – or in a relationship – with Ella Purnell.”
The pair met when Ella was cast in Sweetbitter, which Brad’s Plan B company is set to produce.
The British beauty has appeared in a number of films and even played a younger version of Angelina’s character Maleficent in the 2014 movie.
InTouch claimed Brad, 53, was “enchanted” by Ella, who bares a striking resemblance to his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie.
However, the publication also alleged Angelina, 42, was furious about the romance and their 32 year age gap.
The source said: “She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film.”
However another insider also dispelled the romance rumours to The Mirror, saying: “It’s completely made up, they’re not dating”.
Brad and Angelina shocked the world when they announced their split in September last year after 12 years together and two years of marriage.
The couple have biological children Shiloh, 11 and twins Knox and Vivienne, nine as well as adopted children Maddox, 16, Pax, 13 and Zahara, 12.
She said: “None of it’s easy. It’s very, very difficult, a very painful situation, and I just want my family healthy.
She then added that “they’re getting better” and that they “really help me so much. We’re really such a unit.”
In what seems like a swipe at her ex, Angelina then said: “They’re the best friends I’ve ever had. Nobody in my life has ever stood by me more’
