Is Brad Pitt building a new life with US professor?
BRAD PITT appears to have designs on a stunning university professor.
The Hollywood actor has been romantically linked to acclaimed architect Neri Oxman, whom he has been dating for six months, according to reports.
The 54-year-old, who is estranged from actress Angelina Jolie, is said to have struck up a friendship with the academic while working with her on an architecture project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Oceans 11 star was pictured with the 42-year-old American-Israeli and her students last November in a snap shared on social media. It has since been deleted.
A source said Pitt is ‘interested in spending more time’ with Ms Oxman and told the Page Six celebrity news website: ‘Brad and Neri instantly hit it off because they share the same passion for architecture, design and art.’ Pitt is an architecture and design aficionado and set up the Make It Right Foundation in 2007. It built affordable, energy-efficient homes in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
Ms Oxman, a professor of media arts and sciences, name-checked Pitt and pal George Clooney in an interview last year. ‘For the same reason we have the Brad Pitt’s and George Clooney’s, it’s just part of human nature to idolise stereotypes,’ she told W magazine. However, last night Pitt’s camp said: ‘This is a professional relationship and friendship.’ Also, it has been claimed Prof Oxman is dating billionaire activist Bill Ackman.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Pitt and Jolie, also 42, were close to finalising their divorce after ending their 12-year relationship in 2016. At the time Jolie, 42, requested sole custody of their children, but Pitt now has visitation rights to Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
