If you’ve been on the Brad Pitt bandwagon for years now, we get it. The actor has been in the public eye ever since he got his big break in Thelma & Louise in 1991, and since then, he has gone on to star in huge box office films including Ocean’s Eleven, Troy and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Not only is the actor ~dreamy,~ but he is also single and dipping his feet into the dating pool. So, ladies, this could be your chance!
Brad “put himself back on the market, and for the first time in years, he’s having the time of his life,” a source told In Touch exclusively in July 2019. “He suffered for years with Angie, and the aftermath of their breakup was brutal. Now, as their divorce comes to an end, he feels light. The sparkle is back in his eyes. He’s sober and looks better than he has in years, so he’s not having any problems finding dates.” The insider added, “Brad feels like he’s been given a new lease on life. Honestly, he hasn’t been this happy in years.”
The Ad Astra star — who shares kids Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox, with former wife Angelina Jolie — has been linked to several women since his split from Angie. He was briefly linked to Arrested Development alum Alia Shawkat in September 2019, but it quickly fizzled out. Brad went on to date German model Nicole Poturalski. They were first spotted together in August 2020 and their romance heated up very quickly. Unfortunately, their fling was short-lived and they split in October 2020.
Then there’s the long-standing fan wish that he will somehow end up with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston again. Though the handsome hunk was spotted at the Friends alum’s 50th birthday party in February 2019, and they exhibited some sexual tension when they reunited for a virtual table reading of Fast Times at Ridgemont High in September 2020, it doesn’t seem like they will be riding into the sunset anytime soon.
Meanwhile, the dad of six wants to maintain a close relationship with his children, specifically Shiloh.
“They not only look alike, but they have the same big heart,” an insider told In Touch on November 26. “They’re very compassionate and loving. They’re both very open, they enjoy meeting new people. Shiloh seems to have somehow picked up Brad’s midwestern demeanor.”
Nevertheless, the Academy Award winner also wants his other children to have a closer bond with their dad. “That was always his hope, from all of his kids,” the source added.
Despite some hard times over the past few years — Brad and Angie were involved in a bitter custody battle — it seems like Brad is finally in a great place in his life and in his career. We can’t wait to see what he does next!
