After more than a year of announcing their divorce, Brad Pitt reportedly has a new apple of the eye [VIDEO]. There are swirling rumors that the 53-year-old actor is starting to like Ella Purnell, who happens to be an Angelina Jolie-lookalike.

In fact, the 21-year-old British actress played as a young Maleficent in the 2014 movie with the same title. Does the 42-year-old humanitarian-film producer react?

Pitt has a new apple of the eye

Brad Pitt hasn’t gone on a date in spite of being linked to different actresses. He was linked to Kate Hudson, Marion Cotillard, and many more others, but he didn’t really go out with anyone.

However, it looks like it is about to change with the coming of Ella Purnell.

“He’s so enchanted,” a source told In Touch Weekly. He even cast her to be part of the new television show, “Sweetbitter,” on Starz. Allegedly, the “Fight Club” actor already thought of Purnell to be included in the show from the very beginning. He was said to be surprised by her acting in “Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children” and “Churchill.” So, he even went out of his way to add her as a cast member.

On the other hand, Purnell is said to be enjoying the attention Pitt is giving him. She is even telling her friends that the A-list actor is her number one celebrity crush.

Jolie’s reaction to Pitt’s new love interest

But, it looks like Angelina Jolie didn’t like the news that Brad Pitt cast Ella Purcell to be part of “Sweetbitter,” Hollywood Life reported.

Also, she is not fond of the idea that he likes the young actress. “She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film,” an insider continued to say.

Purcell is just 21-years-old while Pitt is already 53. There are about 32 years of age difference between the two. If truth be told, she is just five years older than Maddox, the former couple’s son who is now 16-years-old. He may be well aware that he can be Purnell’s dad with his age.

The informant explained that Pitt had realized their age gap. Thirty-two years of age is such a big difference. Thus some might think that if ever they will have a relationship, it is a “midlife crisis mistake.”

Pitt might be in love

But, an insider insisted that Brad Pitt is not simply physically attracted to Ella Purnell.

He is allegedly smitten with the young star and taken by her spunky, funny behavior, and different kind of acting skills. The source even teased that Pitt might be soon taking his relationship with her to the next level.
