When Brangelina split up last year, they left the world reeling in shock - but if the rumors are true, Brad seems to be on the lookout for love again. According to sources, he is looking for a woman much like Amal Clooney, his friend George Clooney's lawyer slash activist wife.

A source told People that he is also dating. "It took him a long time to date, but he is now. He likes women who challenge him in every way, especially in the intellect department," said the insider. Referring to Amal, the insider said, "Brad has seen how happy and different Amal has made his friend. It has given him something to think about."

As Pitt and Jolie are stuck in custody negotiations, the insider also added, "Separating was very sad and shocking to him, but he started taking care of himself again. He seems much, much happier." The couple has six children, Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. 

Brad has been linked to MIT professor and architect Neri Oxman, but the two have maintained that they only have a professional relationship and nothing more. But, as another source dishes, if it were up to George, the two would be dating.

He would be "thrilled" if they got together and serious and that it would put the "spring back in his step". The source also added that Amal would like it too. "He's sure it would please his wife to be spending time with other super well-educated women," the source told Hollywood Life.
