Brad Pitt Reportedly Dating 21-Year-Old Actress Who Played A Teenage Angelina In ‘Maleficent’
According to In Touch Weekly, Pitt was so impressed with Purnell’s acting ability in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Churchill that he had his his production company develop a movie around her.
“Brad had Ella in mind from the get-go. He went out of his way to cast her,” says the source. “Ella is incredibly flattered by all the attention she’s getting from Brad,” adds the source. “She’s told friends he’s always been her No. 1 celebrity crush.”
Not everyone is happy though, reportedly…
The pair’s flirtation has Angelina seeing red. “She’s furious about Brad’s interest in Ella and her being cast in Sweetbitter,” says the source. “She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film.”
Brad ain’t care though, reportedly…
“Although Brad’s been working on his sci-fi space travel film Ad Astra, he’s been checking in with Ella weekly as she preps for production,” says the source. “Brad plans on coaching Ella for the show. He’s sure it’s going to be a hit and that it’s going to make Ella a star.” And while things may remain platonic at the moment, the source predicts that won’t last long: “It’s only a matter of time before Brad takes their relationship to the next level.”
I say if she makes him happy then good for him. Age ain’t nuthin’ but a number, my friends.
