Brad Pitt is reportedly seeing a 'rockstar' MIT professor who looks so much like Angelina Jolie
It is reported that Brad and Neri instantly hit it off because they share the same passion for architecture, design and art. This is best described as a professional friendship
Brad Pitt whose recent split with Angelina Jolie has made him a desirable bachelor again, is rumored to be seeing acclaimed architect, award-winning artist and 'rockstar' MIT professor Neri Oxman.
Multiple sources confirmed that architecture and design aficionado, Pitt, recently met the accomplished Oxman through an MIT architecture project and they have since become friends. Pitt was referred to Oxman to collaborate on an architectural project he was working on.
"Brad and Neri instantly hit it off because they share the same passion for architecture, design and art. This is best described as a professional friendship," Page Six reported.
Though Brad is known for his award bagging movies and acting, the 54-year-old actor takes a keen interest in architecture.
He once said while helping to design a hotel complex in Dubai in 2008, "Whilst acting is my career, architecture is my passion."
He also helped commission architects to design and build over 100 eco-friendly homes in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Pitt is also the founder of Make It Right Foundation, which focuses on building affordable homes for people in need.
This may seem like a quick moving-on move but sources have told Page Six that their friendship is a professional one.
"Their friendship has not turned into romance … as both are cautious and this is, again, more of a professional friendship," the insider added to Page Six, "but Brad is very interested in spending more time with Neri, she is fascinating."
However, this is not the first time the A-list celeb has been rumored about potential romance since parting ways with Angelina in September 2016. Soon after the spit, it was reported that he was flirting with Sienna Miller, and then again linked to 21-year-old British actress Ella Purnell.
Earlier this year it was reported that the father of six is casually dating, but it's "nothing serious." Page Six even said the actor went by his first name, William, while flirting.
News of Brad and Oxman arrives a week after it was reported that Angelina Jolie was "seeing a handsome, older-looking man who is a real estate agent."
But People reported that it was untrue. "She is absolutely not seeing anyone and will not be."
As for Brad Pitt, nothing yet has been confirmed. The American-Israeli architect and designer Oxman was previously married to Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov, who she has said had an “incredible influence” on her work. Pitt is still finalizing his divorce from Angelina Jolie.
Fans have been quick to point out that the 42-year-old Oxman bears an uncanny resemblance to Jolie.
She is a professor at the MIT Media Lab, where she founded and directs the Mediated Matter group, which conducts research into bonding design and architecture with natural and biological environments.
Her team has also been building 3-D printers capable of printing biological matter and glass.
