Brad Pitt ‘moving on from Angelina Jolie split with 21-year-old actress’

And she's got an unusual connection to Angelina.

Brad Pitt has reportedly moved on from his split with Angelina Jolie with a 21-year-old actress.

The Fight Club star is said to have embarked on a new relationship with Ella Purnell, who once played a younger version of Angelina in 2014’s Maleficent. 

According to In Touch, Brad is “so enchanted” after seeing Ella in Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children that he has cast her in his upcoming series with Starz, Sweetbitter.

A source told the publication:

“Brad had Ella in mind from the get-go. He went out of his way to cast her.

“Ella is incredibly flattered by all the attention she’s getting from Brad. She’s told friends he’s always been her No. 1 celebrity crush.”

If the reports are true, it would be the World War Z actor’s first serious relationship since he and Angelina ended their 12 year relationship in 2016.

He was previously reported to have been linked to Sienna Miller and Elle Macpherson, which were denied by their reps.

At 21 years old, there’s just five years difference between Ella and Brad’s eldest child, Maddox.

Which, according to the magazine, has proven difficult for Angelina.

A source added:

“She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film.”
