Mr and Mrs Smith’s… daughter? Scratch that. No idea where I’m going with it. Basically, Brad Pitt is going out with a woman who played his ex-wife Angelina Jolie’s younger self in Maleficent.
Bit awkward that, innit? Following a divorce, especially a public one, you have one job: don’t date your ex’s co-worker. It’s textbook stuff.
Yet here Brad Pitt is, changing all the rules and not giving a single hoot.
The Inglorious Basterds actor is allegedly ‘so enchanted’ by British actress Ella Purnell that he’s cast her in upcoming series Sweetbitter.
Purnell is 32 years younger than Pitt.
She portrayed the younger version of Jolie in the 2014 Disney film.
An insider revealed that Angelina is angered by the revelation, reports the Hollywood Gossip.

She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film.
Apparently, Brad first came upon Ella in the 2016 film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
It was revealed recently that Pitt confronted shamed Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein after he ‘attacked’ his then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow.
Paltrow confided in an interview with the New York Times that she had been a victim of Weinstein’s sexual misconduct when she was just 22.
The actress alleged he put his hands on her and tried to escort her into a bedroom to have a joint massage in his room at the Peninsula Hotel during a meeting that had been set up for her.
After telling Pitt, he confronted the producer at a party in the weeks following.
