Actor Brad Pitt has reportedly been spending time with a special lady… MIT professor Neri Oxman.
Brad reportedly met Neri through an MIT architecture project before becoming friends. A source told Page Six, “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.”
The source reiterated, “Their friendship has not turned into romance… as both are cautious and this is, again, more of a professional friendship, but Brad is very interested in spending more time with Neri, she is fascinating.”
Oxman is a professor at the MIT Media Lab. According to the school's website, she “coined the term, and pioneered the field of, Material Ecology, which considers computation, fabrication, and the material itself as inseparable dimensions of design. In this approach, products and buildings are biologically informed and digitally engineered by, with and for, nature.”
Since his split from Angelina Jolie, Pitt has been the subject of dating rumors, but he has not been spotted on a date.
Tiffany Haddish recently poked fun at the rumors after she was linked to Pitt. She told Kelly Ripa at the Oscars, “Oh, I just met him in the elevator. He said in one year, if he's single and I'm single, we gonna do it — so, you know what that means..."
Jennifer Lawrence also shut down rumors that she's dating Brad, telling Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” earlier this month, “No, I've met him once in, like, 2013, so it was very random. But, I also wasn't, like, in a huge hurry to debunk it!”
