Brad Pitt ‘likes women who challenge him… in the intellect department’

The fan event for Paramount Pictures' 'Allied'

As we discussed yesterday, Brad Pitt is completely unoriginal. He’s following George Clooney’s playbook to a ridiculous degree. When George met then-Amal Alamuddin, George’s PR worked overtime to convince People Magazine readers that George could only settle down with Amal because she was the most perfect unicorn in the universe. The whole thing was… overkill, ridiculous, offensive and unrealistic. Well, now Brad’s PR is doing the same thing with Neri Oxman, an MIT professor who by all accounts is lovely, accomplished and brilliant. The latest People Mag headline? “Has Brad Pitt Met His Amal Clooney? ‘He Likes Women Who Challenge Him,’ Says Source.” No, really. The Unicornification of Neri Oxman.

MIT professor and architect Neri Oxman may be just Brad Pitt‘s type, an insider tells PEOPLE in the latest issue. Like his buddy George Clooney’s human-rights lawyer wife Amal Clooney, Oxman is a highly educated expert renowned in her field. Described as “genius and gorgeous” by a source, Oxman, 42, could be a similar match for the 54-year-old Pitt as he starts dating again.

“It took him a long time to date, but he is now,” the insider tells PEOPLE. “He likes women who challenge him in every way, especially in the intellect department. Brad has seen how happy and different Amal has made his friend. It has given him something to think about.”

While a Pitt source has maintained he and Oxman are “just friends,” they’ve met up a few times since the fall and the insider notes Pitt has been flying frequently to the East Coast. He dropped by one of Oxman’s classes last fall and was spotted at MIT again a few weeks ago.

Pitt and Oxman got to know each other through an architecture project at MIT, where she works as a professor of media arts and sciences at the school’s Media Lab. Pitt has always been interested in architecture and founded the Make It Right Foundation, which builds affordable and environmentally friendly homes in New Orleans for people in need.

“One of the things Brad has said all along is that he wants to do more architecture and design work,” another source says. “He loves this, has found the furniture design and New Orleans developing work fulfilling, and knows he has a talent for it.”

[From People]

“He likes women who challenge him in every way, especially in the intellect department.” One, I cover a lot of interviews with his exes, and let me tell you, Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow are hardly some kind of brain trust. I’ll grant him this: Angelina is smart about some things and rather oblivious about others. But let’s not make it seem like Brad was out here dating and marrying MacArthur Genius Grant winners for decades. He was not. I’m not saying Brad is a vapid himbo – he has his strengths too, but I find it hard to believe that actual geniuses would find Brad’s company enchanting for longer than a few hours.

As for the Unicornification of Neri Oxman… well, what’s next on the list? Probably a pap stroll by Neri Oxman solo, so we can see her street style. She’ll be carrying a book that only a genius would read and she’ll be wearing comfortable-but-expensive shoes. That’s my prediction.

    • ComeON. says:

      I really feel like Brad’s camp got wind of Angelina’s ‘Most Admired Woman in the World,’ title and freaked the F out – and now he/they are attempting to rehabilitate his alcoholic irresponsible at best, violent at worst, image using Professor lady as the tool.

      That’s kind of skeevy, and definitely a weak move. Brad needs to publicly take some accountability for his F up, before his ‘camp’ uses yet another woman to re-make his banged up image.

      We see what hes doing. The goal is, if Brad is hanging with an accomplished MIT professor he can’t be a violent alcoholic Dad who needs serious rehab to not relapse lest he endanger his kids again.

      Moreso than Brad just dating some fame seeking actress who wouldn’t care what he had done or how much of a boozer he was, this serious educated layperson is assumed to have higher standards which helps him.

      That said, I honestly think Angelina would be thrilled if he got a responsible adult serious minded woman who wanted to take him, his kids and his baggage on. I’m sure she wants every single one of her kids to go to college so shed be a great role model- and a truly accomplished woman in the field of education in her kids father’s life would be higher on Angie’s list than a celebrity and/or actress.

      That said again, I doubt any of this is true. Both us weakly and people rag are hedging their bets.

      I more than anything find it high hilarity how this layperson has moved the Aniston reunification tabloid stories off the magazine stands. Shut her down completely. Gotta wonder if that might have been Brad and his camp’s motivation too- to see the tabloid Aniston latching on to his coattails once again had to be depressing as all…..

      • Just curious why you think Angelina wants the kids to go to college? Has she said so in an interview? I have a hard time seeing it just because they have been home schooled for so long that I would think college would be such a culture shock. They don’t have the structure of going to school or having school friends now. That said I hope they do attend as it is a good time to wet your feet in independence.

      • .. says:

        Homeschooled kids do great in college. don’t promote stereotypes. The school environment is what stunts a kids social development. Homeschooled kids are around all kinds of people…all the time.

      • fiona says:

        Just curious, you don’t seem to know much at all about homeschooling do you, Winteriscoming?

      • @fiona
        I have 3 nieces and 1 nephew that were homeschooled but none of them attended college. They are successful in their lives with 1 being very outgoing, 1 at his job for 15 years but not especially social, 1 moderately and a stay at home mom, 1 very antI-social and homeschooling her daughter but making sure there’s lots of activities with children her age (a bit of irony but she tries for her child). So while I know quite a bit about homeschooling I wasn’t sure how the transition to college would be.
        I’m guessing it has a good deal to do with individual personalities and the amount of structured learning and time spent being social within the appropriate age group. All of those factors would vary greatly depending on the child, instructor, and environment. I’ve only ever heard Angie wanting her children to be socially conscientious, free to be expressive in the arts, and of course, Maddox and Pax worked on her movies. I’ve never heard either parent express a desire for their children to attend college. Have Brad or Angie mentioned that?

      • .. says:

        I don’t know why Angie would be discussing her kids private lives with the general public. As far as you asking if they’ve ever said their kids want to go to college. Im not sure why you think Fiona would know that. Lol.
        I’m sure Angelina’s kids will be more than just fine….. and just because your family didn’t go to college …..that has no bearing whatsoever on whether others kids will.
        Maybe you should just stay in your lane and worry about your own. And stop trying to shade “homeschoolers”. There are millions of them…all shapes and sizes.
        And winter is coming…..When Angie’s kids make a life decision…..I wouldn’t expect to be in on it.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @winteriscoming

        No. Neither has mentioned it, but the stans tend to spam these threads so even if you state an opinion or fact they take it personally. I started paying attention more to them when they became a couple and had children.
        They weren’t totally homeschooled though and used to go to international school in the places they spent periods of time.
        We were doing it but decided to restructure our lives. My children are young though so it was ok for a time. I am not a big supporter of it for older children.
        Other celebrity parents threads are always full of questions about education and college, so it isn’t a big deal here either.

      • citney says:

        @Winteriscoming
        I’m still laughing at that “college would be a culture shock” for the JP kids snide remark. The JP kids are world travelers, have friends all over the world, are comfortable in more cultures than most adults could even dream of.

        As for you not knowing if Angie has college in mind for her children, she’s only mentioned it in umpteen interviews.

        As for “homeschooling”, that’s a different subject altogether. There is “homeschooling” and there is the kind of homeschooling the JP children are receiving, and the two are not in any way comparable.

      • Ain’tNoTelling says:

        Here’s my question: If Brad is dating this girl, then why is he practically living with Angelina and his children again?

        Perhaps I’m wrong, but from what I understand, Brad’s car is seen coming in and out of the Los Feliz compound, AND his car is there overnight on a regular basis, AND this has been going on for months.

        Maybe he stays there when Angelina is out of town?

      • Lorelei says:

        @Citney, I basically agree with your comment, but I think the “culture shock” factor would have more to do with things like…having to be in class at 8am three days a week, having assignments due at a certain time with no exceptions, having to go to class even if they don’t like their teacher — stuff like that. We don’t know much about their private lives, and I agree with you that their lives have taught them more about the world than elementary school would do for most children — but it doesn’t appear that they have had to respect the authority of a teacher or coach, stick to deadlines, follow the same rules as the other students, etc.

        Not to mention navigating friendships and relationships (and this is a big if because we have no idea what the future holds for them) with peers if college is their first exposure to that kind of constant contact with kids their own age. Especially given who their parents are. This may sound crazy but I believe they need some experience in figuring out who truly likes them for who they are, and who just wants to claim to be friends with a celebrity.

      • citney says:

        @Lorelei

        The JP children do have friends their own age, they even travel with them on occasion.

        As for having to be in school at a certain time, Angelina has said many times the younger children have school during morning hours while the older children are schooled during the afternoons.

        As for navigating relationships and friendships with their peers, it will be no more different for them than for any celebrity’s child.

  3. minx says:

    “Especially in the intellect department” is the way a dumb person thinks a smart person talks.

  4. Bethany F says:

    truly smart people don’t spend their time like this, trying to convince others of how smart they are.

  5. Mia4s says:

    Somehow I feel like Brad won’t have any problem finding a woman to challenge him in the intellect department. 🙄

    This must be a record: These two aren’t even an official couple yet and I’m already sick of the mere mention of them. I’m over it and I never had a moment to be under it. Last of these posts for me!

  6. Shannon says:

    He must like a LOT of women then! Sorry, I’m not saying he’s dumb, but he’s never impressed me as any great intellect either. Plus, dudes who say that are really obnoxious. Like, you’re judging my IQ while sizing up my tits? Classy. I’ll take a pass.

  7. Pimo says:

    She is sort of a unicorn though. Three women in the past years have been unicornized (?): Amal, Meghan and Neri. Of the three, Neri is by far the most accomplished, she was already famous in her field, has been featured in magazines on her own merit and received awards. Her pieces are on display in the likes of MoMa!

    In terms of looks, they are all gorgeous women.

    • QueenB says:

      And Amal came into the spotlight with Julian Assange which was one of the most publicized legal cases in the world. She isnt “by far” the most accomplished.

      • Millennial says:

        Right?! I had heard of Amal Alamuddin a year or two before she dated Clooney. She was successful in her own right.

      • Truthful says:

        @Millenial: she was indeed well known (that’s why he pursued her too)

      • Pimo says:

        I always thought she was a minor lawyer, but then this information comes from reading Celebitchy where accomplishments may be downplayed or overplayed.

        Still while I rank them close to each other, I am more impressed by Neri. But then thirsty people annoy me and Amal had been very thirsty in the beginning. Even though she’s grown on me in the last year or so, since she got pregnant and I began to like and admire her, so far Neri has a lot of positives and not many negatives. That may very well change.

        I find it funny that a blog which turned Meghan Markle into the ultimate unicorn looks down on women like Amal and Neri.

      • truth says:

        And Julian thought she was totally incompetent..haha
        He fired her and for good reason, she was a useless lawyer and only used him for publicity..and in a way it worked..

      • magnoliarose says:

        @Pimo

        I think all three women are impressive in many ways, but like you, I think Neri is the most accomplished. Amal does like attention, and it can grate, but I notice attorneys on high profile cases tend to be that way.
        Architecture is dominated by men, and she has done a lot at a young age for people in that field. Her work is interesting too.

      • Tia says:

        Not sure who is more accomplished but sort of weird to call Amal thirsty and make unfavourable comparisons with Neri in relation to this. At least Amal didn’t have personal websites with glamorous pictures of herself. Its pretty obvious Neri is way more into the whole PR thing way before she met Pitt than Amal was pre Clooney. Amal had a Twitter but it wasn’t full of glamourous pictures of herself it was just social and political commentary.
        The whole rockstar professor image doesn’t happen by chance it’s careful marketing. Neri is definetly not a low key attention shunning person, not that there’s anything wrong with that.
        Also amal was already working at the UN and at Columbia School of law pre clooney and she was at the time in her 30s. This lady is already 42.

  8. AmyB says:

    Didn’t he make comments similar to this about Jennifer Aniston when he was finally with Angelina Jolie….that he had been living an uninteresting life before (the implication was that with Aniston he was bored) but he had found his match in Jolie. So, now we are supposed to believe this crap? I would hardly categorize Brad Pitt as some intellectual. This is getting ridiculous!

    • Darla says:

      Yes and unfortunately that image stuck, so much so that it is being used against her in her current divorce. We’ll see if it works again. Some women need multiple examples before they catch on to a man’s games.

    • Rhea says:

      Yup. I’m getting a déjà vu, already. Since it can’t be a beach, next stop might be a photo-op of them in the middle of a prestigious art exhibition discussing something soooo seriously. 😏

      • AmyB says:

        Exactly…..for years we were given the narrative that he was fulfilled with Angie and now all of the sudden, the need for some “intellectual” woman? As if AJ is not that…..Please spare me. Same with the Aniston diss years ago. Seems the pattern here is that when he takes up with someone new, he passive aggressively throws his exes under the bus. Brad Pitt, you may still be hot, but an intellectual on the level of this MIT professor, you are NOT.

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      He said he was bored during the marriage. …living an unfulfilled life and didn’t like himself during that time. The quick read of the quote is him saying he was bored with Jennifer; the actual subtext is that HE was boring. Referring to when he did nothing the first few years of being married. Halfway through is when he began to seriously work on building up Plan B, as well as take on film roles ie Troy (which I *think* Plan B produced), the Ocean’s films, and MAMS.

      If you read that THR interview he did when WWZ came out, you’d also note that 2005 was the year Brad Grey pulled out of Plan B to go run Paramount. Dede Gardner (one of 2 other producers with Plan B) is quoted as saying everyone up until then viewed Plan B as a vanity vehicle for Brad’s films and now that Brad Grey was leaving it would fold…and Dede should find another job. Brad P called her on vacation (a funny story of how her mom told him to call back bc they were on vacation) and Dede was freaking bc every HW insider tells her the company is folding etc. Basically after that…Brad paid their salaries out of pocket while the 3 of them (with Jeremy Kleiner) figured outhat what direction to take Plan B in.

  9. Amide says:

    But I thought he and Clooney weren’t even that tight. 😩👀
    There’ve been more stories of Clooney hanging out with Aniston, than with Pitt. (I mean outside work).

  10. Really says:

    “likes women who challenge him….in the intellect department”. – I almost fell off my chair laughing when I read this. Seriously?? 😅😅

  11. Moon says:

    The new toy for boys with mid life crisis – “intellectual” girlfriend. I hate that these PR sound bites objectify Neri and Amal.

  12. Merritt says:

    He likes women who have personalities he can copy.

    • monette says:

      OMG, nailed it!!!
      I’m sorry, but he trully is a mimbo! Only relevant because of the women he dates/marries.

      America’s Sweethart
      The Leg of Doom
      and now MIT Genius

      Where are your freaking kids Bradley? Not interested in being a father anymore?
      You think at 54 and with all that free time to rediscover himself he would actually become a better person.
      But nooo, same old bullshit.

      • Carmen says:

        I am so over this guy. I don’t want to hear another word from anyone about how Brad would see the kids more if it wasn’t for evil Angie keeping them away from him. He never wanted joint custody in the first place. That was just to throw shade on Angie. He’s reinvented himself as a pseudo intellectual art-fart and the kids are collateral damage. I don’t think he has really deep feelings for anyone, including his children. He doesn’t need them in his life any more.

    • greenmonster says:

      Yes, that’s what I think as well. With Juliette Lewis he was a grungy version of himself, with Gwyneth Paltrow the polished Hollywoodstar, with Jennifer Aniston kind of the boy next door and with Angelina a world traveling more caring version. Sure, his love for architecture is known for years – so now he might have landed himself the ultimate goal for his next personality step: Brad the architect.

    • Carrie1 says:

      This.
      I’ve been on receiving end of this kind of person and it’s a painful experience. Brad is not a catch in my book. Also reading so many articles about this is concerning. It’s weird stalkerish vibe. Could be me projecting but I just don’t like all this press before a relationship… it forces people into things they may not pursue. He did this with Angelina, or someone did… Jen commented he was missing a sensitivity chip, remember?

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      EXACTLY, Merritt. I think you nailed it.

  13. ChrissyMS says:

    This is so lame. You are dating a professor Brad, you are not curing cancer. Get over yourself!!

  14. BJ says:

    WOW that’s funny
    He needs a new publicist.

      • .. says:

        But Clooney hadn’t lost custody of six children, and abusived a cpl of wives. Brad will never be and never was anywhere near George Clooney.

      • Alexandria says:

        In the process, Clooney’s PR didn’t leave him looking like an immature, disengaged parent bent on shading his ex wife. Clooney’s PR was just an aging heartthrob who found serious but ‘equal or more intellectual’ love late in life. Seriously this is pushing it. I really feel for those kids. They did not write Brad’s name on the lock in France. He should stop this ridiculous immature play. He and his publicist are making a huge mistake. I think they got off the round of applause Brad got at some awards show months ago, as if he should be applauded for finally being free. Sheesh! What a turn off you are now.

  15. Sunny says:

    When this custody battle would be finally over?

    • Fa says:

      Something is going on behind close door and team Brad are not with Angelina, so now they are shading her by overselling this woman.

      • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

        I’m not sure getting on multiple tabloids showing how happy you are sans your children and spending your time “dating” is the logical way of winning a custody battle. It doesn’t shade Angie, on the contrary, it makes her out to be the more responsible parent. This is what you do when you want to *not* have custody. It’s like he’s promoting his new single life and advertising that there are no children or ex-wife to limit him. Does he understand that he is responsible for the children he brought into this world and those he adopted?

        Dude even Ben Affleck, the hot mess, is planning his future life to include his children. Actually moving close enough so his children can come over Daily.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        @Orig. T.C
        I don’t understand your comment. Angelina bought a house literally half a mile down the road from their previous family home. So we literally don’t know if they are/aren’t seeing him daily. He just hasn’t been photographed doing so.

      • Joy says:

        @VC how do you explain Angelina and the kids being in London and Pitt being in L.A. serious question? I mean surely things being normal ,he’d have followed just to make sure the kids are settled, yet he didn’t??? In 20 months he hasn’t been seen at a mall, restaurant, a park etc with his kids even by stalky fans? The kids stay cooped up in the house/ his property & never ever leave it?? Why?

      • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

        True @VC

        But we get PR leaks about his “secret” dating life. If you can get info on how many nights he spends at the professor’s wouldn’t you also be able to get info on him spending time with his kids? Believe me, I don’t want to see the kids used as props or their pic but isn’t it odd that he is being presented as a single man instead of as a father? Maybe it’s just me but I always think of men with children as a unit…

  16. alba.lilium says:

    My God this narrative getting too old too fast. It’s always his partners fault, too boring, too simple, too intellectually unchallenging. I bet Angelina was intellectually unchallenging on that flight so he decided to make her read a book you guys. He isn’t a manipulative abusive asshole he just wants you to read a book on astrophysics!!! Narcissist much?

    • KBB says:

      You’re projecting. Nowhere does it say Angelina was not intellectually challenging. It says he likes women who challenge him intellectually. He was with her for 12 years, ergo she was intellectually challenging.

      • .. says:

        No…he’s projecting. Indirectly. That’s his mo. He did mean Jen was boring when he backtracked and said he meant him. He’s the guy who doesn’t have tha b@lls to say it to your face. He indirectly throws his shade. A p-ssy basically.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        From Esquire, 2013
        For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter.
        A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f***ing off.

        But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change.

        This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany.

        From Parade, 2011

        In 2011, he told Parade magazine he spent the 1990s ‘sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out’.

        He said he felt ‘pathetic’ and that he ‘wasn’t living an interesting life.’

        He added: ‘I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.’

      • KBB says:

        @.. His exact quote was “I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic.” Then he said he was also pretending his marriage was something it wasn’t as VC quoted above.

        But he was very clearly saying his life was boring because of his own behavior. He never called Jennifer Aniston boring.

      • imqrious2 says:

        @says, let’s not call weak men “p-ssy”. Like Betty White says: “I don’t know why that’s used as an insult! Vaginas are STRONG and can withstand a pounding!”

        Just call them limp d!cks 😜🤣😁

  17. MamaHoneyBadger says:

    Ok, I’ll be the lone holdout. IME, when people hit their 50s, we take a look at what’s worked and what hasn’t. Often we realize we were following society’s expectations when choosing our partners. For Pitt, I think Jolie was the first partner who wasn’t “pretty & dim” and who challenged him intellectually. Once you’ve experienced that, there’s no going back from there. There just isn’t.

    People are allowed to change and evolve. Even movie stars.

    • Pimo says:

      As a teenager and in my twenties, I was attracted to hot guys. It changed as I grew older. I cannot find a man attractive unless he can impress me intellectually. It is a good thing if Brad Pitt realized that what he wants in a woman is more brains than hotness. Though Neri Oxman is very beautiful, she is not young model/actress hot.

      • JG says:

        Just curious, what is really the difference between model/actress hot and very beautiful?

      • Truthful says:

        @JG: lol! spot on!

        Yes what is the difference ?

      • perplexed says:

        I don’t really know what the difference is, but I think it’s clear he found the hottest professor out there in academia. Conclusion: he likes hot intellects! (which is like the best of both worlds. If you had a choice between dumb and hot vs. smart and hot, I figure the latter would be preferable for either a man or a woman. In other words, I don’t think his choice is ground-breaking.)

      • Pimo says:

        I once was in an industry where occasionally we worked with models. The difference is, you just can’t take your eyes off a beautiful model, they are ridiculously perfect. Neri has gorgeous photos on the Internet, but she’s all made up in them. In a lot of other, more casual photos (I totally googled her and went through her photos!) she looks more like the very beautiful women that you can see around. Also I said young model/actress. Neri Oxman is 42.

      • truth says:

        Actually many young model/actress lack charisma and charm..and it change everything and doesn’t make them really attractive/mesmerizing for a long time..in other words you can take your eye’s off them after a little while because you are BORED !

    • Cynical Ann says:

      That’s fine and could very well be true-he’s past the stoner stage. But you don’t have your pr people release it to People magazine-you just live your life.

    • .. says:

      But he isn’t changing….he’s doing the exact same thing. That’s the joke. He doesn’t get that he fcked himself lonnnnng ago.

    • mannori says:

      the question is: would a woman who’s intellectually challenging find HIM interesting? because the trick here is that if the woman is not a bimbo there must be more than just a hot middle age rich movie star to have her tingle…if she’s *really* smart that is…

    • truth says:

      I think Juliet Lewis..while much younger than him could challenge him..she was a bit ‘eccentric/wild’ fun for Hollywood standards..But after that he was more with female copies of him..Gwyneth..Jennifer..And came Angelina who was a bit like Juliet AND more worldly, sophisticated, cultivated too..so now he wants more of this type..and i understand him. It is more interesting.

  21. DrSnark says:

    So like, pretty much any woman?

  22. Jayna says:

    I don’t believe this story came from anyone with real information. Brad isn’t even close to George, and I doubt Brad has been in contact with George barely, if at all, after the split. He doesn’t know Amal. Maybe he has met her, but nothing more than that. Bringing Amal and George into the story told me this is not put out there by Brad and his people. It’s just fluff from People Mag.

      This is how I know People is full of shit. I saw so many GC references I’m half convinced George wrote this. Especially since I’m not even sure Brad or Angelina met Amal. Last time I saw them photographed together with George + a girlfriend was Stacy K at the Oscars????

      • Tulip Garden says:

        @VC,
        I don’t think people realize how poorly the print media is doing. They will print, guess, or make up anything that proves to be a good seller. Brad Pitt and this woman, or any woman, does that.
        Also, scandal, divorce, and fighting. Jolie next relationship will be covered just as extensively, and with as little info, if she/ they sale well.
        GMAB on the pitt wanted an Amal. This is just pitting women against each other. Sadly, it sales like crazy. All these years, “boring, poor Jen” against “Sexy Saint Angie” and now same thing with different names and accompanying personas.
        Pathetic.

      • magnoliarose says:

        I agree that this isn’t BP’s people at all.
        Half of me wonders if Amal or George didn’t have something to do with it too. Do either of them have a project? Otherwise, it is overkill. No long time publicist would say such inane things to People magazine. It doesn’t even ring true.

      • Joy says:

        @Tulip and everyone in this thread I’d take your arguments a lot more seriously if you had been saying all this for years and not just today. I don’t recall any people mag is lying posts from you guys before? Let’s all own our bias , we believe what we want and when we don’t like it it’s all lies, depending on who says it of course (everything from Star, In touch and the like is made up). VC is here saying this because she doesn’t like what people mag is saying & how it makes Pitt look having such comments attributed to him & his sources & well because he’s being mocked.

        Having said that, duh people mag makes things up a lot. They all do even the ” reputable” ones and like you say it’s the sexist tropes that sell to gullible people they like manufacturing and reproducing, it’s typical. I just find it ironic that people are complaining about it on a gossip site. But like @Cynical Ann says, people is also celebrity friendly & are giant suck ups, once they are team someone they don’t print stuff that while yes possibly manufactured they know will piss that celebrity off, so either tacit or explicit approval. Pitts own Rep basically copped to the Page 6 initial leak about this relationship, they got it from someone & didn’t just stumble on it. So it’s not crazy to imagine that his team has been doing the rounds with ” trusted” publications. If it’s a lie then it’s a lie, his rep doesn’t seem to have a problem denying things, that’s if we believe that Gossip Cop is legit though, personally I have my doubts.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        @Joy
        If you read any of my comments on this site from 2012 to early 2016, you’d say I have said the same thing over and over….I don’t believe tabloids. I filter tabloid stories/anything that isn’t a straight interview from what I know about the celebrity and how I personally feel about them. In that way–yes, I am biased…we all are. I also don’t think GossipCop knows anything AT ALL because all they do is print the exact opposite of what the tabloids say/”refute” the tabloids. I could do that in my sleep. It’s maybe 10% of the time that they actually have something to back it up besides an unnamed rep or “insider” that “talked” to them. I believe this of ALL celebs. People is not immune to this and they have gotten so tabloid-y over the past few years. And I also very much doubt that they run every single story they ever print by every celeb. Celebs give interviews to them because they are still considered somewhat of a lifestyle magazine….just as other tabloids were, before they became “tabloidy”. Celebs used to give interviews to legit tabloids in the ’90s, early ’00s. Media changes.

        And BTW….the “Page Six leak”, actually said that Brad’s “rep” told Page Six that they were friends and he had attended one of her classes because he had been referred to her for help with a project. Page Six added the rest about them potentially being a couple, and then later (after People, ET, etc) went to go copy them, they added an amendment that Neri was seeing a billionaire (Bill Ackman). And to me, this story is basically copying how he was with Angelina. When they got together, they did not confirm or deny that they were together (after being photographed in Kenya together)……..Brad said on Diane Sawyer that when there was something to talk about (to my mind, something more concrete than dating) then he would–but he and Angelina were seen together (sidenote: I wonder how much of that was due to AJ’s stunt double and friend being hacked by Murdoch’s paper)……….so yes, there were stories about Brad/Angelina that they were dating, etc while they were being seen out and about…and they didn’t say anything until 2006 i.e. a good 8 months later. These tabloid stories are attempting to follow the same pattern….but problem is, Brad has not been seen near her except for two photos taken in the MIT lab last fall (which I saw then, so I’m laughing at how it took the tabs that long to see it)…..so yea. Try harder tabs.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        @Joy,
        I think if I stick to the subject and have coherent reasoning that should be enough to take me seriously.
        It is a gossip sight so I am discussing gossip. My insights and overviews, and yes, bias may differ from yours but that doesn’t invalidate what I am saying. You have agreed with as much yourself. So have VC and Magnolia both of whom I have found to be reasonanle, decent posters that I enjoy.
        Differences are okay.

      • KBB says:

        @Joy I don’t know about People magazine here, but Gossip Cop will literally print anything a publicist tells them. This is what they wrote about Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux on January 23 of this year “…the notion that there is an imminent divorce looming is utterly false, as is every other allegation here. Their marriage was not “over” in December…”

        Most of the time they’re just debunking dumb s*** that was printed in third tier tabloids like Brad Pitt NOT planning dream summer wedding with Jennifer Aniston or whatever, but I don’t think they have sources outside of publicists. They never confirm rumors that turn out to be true. They just debunk stories, and as with Aniston, they get those wrong when the publicists don’t want them out yet.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Why Thank you Tulip Garden.

        @Joy
        People magazine has been printing nonsense for some time, and there have always been some facts that didn’t add up, but it has steadily become worse over the last several years. They printed something I knew for a fact wasn’t true, and they said a “source” revealed when that is sometimes true and sometimes not.
        One thing to watch for in these stories is removing all personal feelings what honestly makes no sense. Why in the world would BP mention Amal? He doesn’t even know her. Not even getting into Clooney’s lifestyle and how “different” it is and includes couples and people more like him.
        Publicists go to People or used to so they could clean up an image or cement something wholesome about celebrities. It doesn’t mean it was true. Publicists aren’t paid to tell the truth. They are paid to make celebrities look good.
        Truths about this couple will never see the light of day and the things that go on behind the scenes won’t be printed. Ever. Gossip is what it is, but it is hardly a full picture or story.
        People never outs anyone, do they? But they will print a story acting like a couple doesn’t involve bearding or a fake publicity relationship.
        Page Six isn’t always right either.
        He and AJ have always been experts at saying nothing, ignoring press lies and living under the radar. Why would that change?

  23. Kam says:

    I dislike the subtext that he found someone “worthy” of his own intellect. And that they are somehow equals. No. Neri is slumming it by being with Brad. Clooney did the same thing. You guys are actors and your gfs and wives are so far above you intellectually it’s ridiculous yet they insist on saying ” I prefer” or ” we’re a better match” intellectually. Typical male ego. It diminishes their accomplishments.

    • greenmonster says:

      Very good point! All the other women, who have the same job as BP and GC, are beneath them intellectually. But these two accomplished and very smart women are on their level. Yip, sure… totally believe that. What an insult all around. Actresses? Stupid, boring and not intellectual! Lawyers and architects? Just like Brad and George.

    • KLO says:

      I find it kind of weird to think that those guys (brad and clooney) could be dumb while they are producing successful hollywood movies and have had long careers as a-list actors. But yeah i basically understand the stereotype about actors being dumb. just that those stereotypes most of the time dont apply. I personally have met more dimwit academics than performers/actors/ dancers. I dont think bard is dumb any more than i think neri oxman is the second coming.

  24. .. says:

    If you look back at pictures of him his early years….I guess we shouldn’t be so shocked by this bizarre self promotion of his. He seems like he’s been very hungry for the fame….and very predatory at aiming his sights on females that he could benefit career and image wise from. Very very predatory and calculated.
    But then at the same time you can just tell he’s as dumb as a rock. He could date superwoman and he’d still be a total joke.

  25. Dr Mrs The Monarch says:

    So…raising 6 children with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds wasn’t “intellectually challenging”? Sounds more like getting your ego deflated by your teenagers was the real challenge. Fire your PR team Brad, you look bad. Want to look good again? Instead of having anonymous sources leak to the tabloids about your “intellectualism”, do something smart: get papped taking your kids to a museum.

  26. perplexed says:

    So, they’re really dating? What happened to her billionaire boyfriend?

  27. Candies says:

    Gosh? Isn’t the same happens for anyone who is in a high public interest person ? Whats wrong in self promotions if that? everyone public does that to the point depending on…What is the burn? Maya and etc let it go. It is that part of you what alienate even the fans imo .

    • Maya says:

      Excuse me but why specially mention my name? Not once have critized his fans nor have I called him names.

      I dislike his pr games and I will call him out on that.

      As for people like me putting out his fans, you must be really weak if you let some stranger’s opinion sway your own. It’s just stupid excuse from people like you because you have nothing else to use as argument.

    • .. says:

      He is an abusive man. He doesn’t get to be prom king again. No one cares who he is dating. He is audacious to think they do or should after being an abuser. This is the time of me too. He doesn’t just get to give himself a pass and sidle back in.
      He has no minivan majority anymore….. it’s done. He’s almost sixty…and his behavior in the press screams out of touch with reality. Maybe a little early onset dementia? Definitely narcissism.

      • Mimi says:

        @.. You wouldn’t think so by comments on other sites & forums. Angelina is still very much the guilty,evil one in their minds. Brad is the innocent man who had his kids ripped from & his image smeared by this hateful woman. The women that still fawn all over him is nauseating.

      • .. says:

        @mimi…. I think his pr tactic is to play the comment sections…..multiple screen names, etc….. In reality I know of no one who likes or cares abt this guy. The general consensus is he seems to be a huge joke. Most probrad posts are his pr.

        I don’t think there are women fawning anymore……but he really wants ppl to think there are.

      • Lady D says:

        Not quite.There are women on this very site fawning over him. He’s not my cup of tea but trust he is fawned over, across the planet. I do agree with him being a huge joke.

      • KBB says:

        @.. Yes, his PR team is behind all positive Brad Pitt comments on the internet. They learned from George Soros getting all those people to protest Donald Trump.

      • .. says:

        @kbb…..not all…but a lot. Can’t deny they aren’t in the comment sections….

      • magnoliarose says:

        He has fans, and she has fans. I don’t dislike either of them, but I am not under any illusions that he is some evil loser or she is some saintly perfection, or he is some perfectly innocent guy, and she is an evil junkie child abuser. Yes, that rumor goes around too. They are just people who are famous and flawed like everyone else and like everyday people are getting a divorce. The thought that she doesn’t have demons and issues of her own is absurd.
        For some reason, all the players involved including past figures like JA bring up such strong emotions. I don’t get it.
        Why are accusations against him true but not against her? In both instances, their fans get equally emotionally invested and take positive comments about either far too seriously.
        I haven’t seen anyone in these threads heavy duty BP stans. I don’t think they comment on his threads here.

      • Joy says:

        @MagnoliaRose you really should read your own comments sometime on all Pitt posts, you come across as a heavy duty Pitt Stan. It’s always interesting to me that in every thread you always laser in on the comments critising Pitt and dispute what’s being said. As for “rumours” about Angelina being a “junkie child abuser” I’m sorry you don’t get to bring up things that are said on certain hateful sites and act like it’s mainstream gossip or founded accusations. Pitt actually was investigated for child abuse, he actually was required to get drug tested weekly or whatever only him and not Angelina btw so that’s not a rumour or an accusation . So I don’t understand your constant application of bothisisms?

        And I think we all know people have issues, but again Angelina didn’t own up to a drinking problem recently in GQ and she actually still has custody of her kids & again wasn’t investigated by several authorities. She told us about her issues twenty years ago & still owns them to this day, so I’m not sure why you’re ascribing the without issues tag to her like we don’t know all this?

      • magnoliarose says:

        @Joy
        Nope. I am not a stan of anyone. I have spent too long around the entertainment industry to know that no one is as they seem. Why would I invest emotion in a celebrity based on a fabricated image?
        I don’t stan actors because I think they are mostly vain and insecure as a rule. The kind I do like are never in the tabloids and live low key lives.
        I don’t think he is special, extraordinary, particularly handsome or talented but I don’t think he deserves some of the serious accusations either. My point is that every stan group believes the worst about who they want and the best about who they want. Much of it isn’t based on fact or at least it is based on a selective interpretation of the knowns.
        Each side thinks they are right. All along when it came to the people in the ridiculous triangle, their fans have accused others of taking sides when the truth is most people don’t care all that much.
        I am the same on most threads about people. I like some things, and I don’t like others, but I try to be balanced without getting into the weeds with superfans. There is no point because they don’t want to hear anything that doesn’t support their POV.
        I participate in other sections on this site as do some others, so you probably don’t have a grasp of how we are about other subjects.

  28. Adorable says:

    Like some alluded yesterday,This PR game by Brad is to distract us from talking about why he isn’t with his kids while Angie & the kids are in England,something’s fishy here..

  29. Jay (the Canadian one) says:

    Being attracted to someone out of your league isn’t revolutionary. The question is can he hold the interest of these intellectual women?

  30. Mimi says:

    The fact that this man has been seen with a shady character who owns a PR company speaks volumes. His team hasn’t shut up all week & before that, the leaking that he’s “casually dating” More important….. No mention of his bad behaviour towards his wife & kids. All negative stuff completely shut down. This is definitely Image Rehab. He even continued to lie in his GQ piece. Saying he “quit everything but boozing when starting his family” Everyone knows that’s garbage. He never stopped smoking pot. Not to mention why is he always trying to hide his drink when photographed? He is a middle aged man that is still so immature. Until he truly grows up,he is not going to have a healthy relationship with anyone.

  31. .. says:

    Brad attaching himself to this woman doesn’t make him look better….it makes her look worse.

    Nor does it erase history. Why on earth does he think who he dates will change anything? No one can even stand the sight of his face. He’s beyond cringeworthy. This is just so obviously about fixing his image. But no ones buying anymore.

    • KBB says:

      No one can stand the sight of his face? Who are you talking about? The general public? He’s quite well-liked by his colleagues and the general public, so I’m not sure I follow.

      • .. says:

        He’s not so well liked. His latest movies didn’t go so well. He is an admitted abuser…and hasn’t been seen w his kids in almost two years now. His pr team is shoving this new dating stuff down everyone’s throats….in an obvious attempt to steal the accomplishments of another by linking himself to her.
        Read any other comment on this page…you’ll catch on.

      • Joy says:

        @KBB not to dispute your point, I agree Pitt is liked by his colleagues. But who is the general public? Would this be the American general public, the world general public? I saw a similar comment on here yesterday about how Angelina isn’t liked and I wanted to ask by whom? ( i don’t necessarily dispute that either btw, it’s clear to me that the American public at least , for the most part doesn’t like Angelina as I see it) I had an interesting conversation with a fellow fan yesterday about the tabloid reading public versus the real world global public, and how some people seem to think the gossip reading public is the real world & would you agree there’s a real world discrepancy there? Or not? I ask because I’m genuinely interested in your opinion, I don’t always agree with you but you’re a reasonable Pitt fan who unlike some knows what she’s talking about as someone that’s clearly followed both Pitt and Angelina through the years.

      • KBB says:

        @Joy When I say general public I mean more casual observers than people who follow gossip closely. I think he has that charm that people generally like if they see him on a late night show or in a movie. I’m American so I am referring to the US and western countries with similar pop culture to the US.

        Now this is all just me speculating, but I think for the most part if I asked a few neighbors, a few relatives, and a few co-workers what their opinion of Brad Pitt was, most of them would be neutral to positive about him.

        I don’t think that is true for people who follow gossip more closely. We pay more attention to him and his private life and his media strategy, so we’re more likely to have stronger opinions of him, both negative and positive. Add to that the fact that both of his most recent exes have their own ardent fan bases, it’s easy to find people who don’t like him among gossip followers.

        Angelina, for whatever reason, has always been more of a lightning rod than Brad. I disagree that most people don’t like her, but I think you’d find people have much stronger opinions about her, even those who don’t follow gossip closely.

      • .. says:

        Well if you were to ask random people around here…he would be less than neutral…to strongly disliked…but more generally thought of as not someone that is a wholesome honest person. Or not someone to take seriously based on his own past actions. Hence the negative comments….every time there is an article about him.
        But rednecks and t ru mp supporters are generally more accepting of brash abusive type men….so I can see that.
        And I’m American as well.

      • Joy says:

        Thanks for responding KBB .I think Angelina has more of a global fan base than Pitt, I’m in no way saying he’s not liked internationally or anything because well he’s Brad Pitt the movie star. It’s just always interesting to me to see the immense international makeup of her fans. I think Angelina because of the humanitarian work, transcends the usual celebrity fame trope, as in some see her as more than an actress. None of my acquaintances & friends follow gossip or famous people for the most part, but they all know Angelina and her humanitarian work on some level and admire that, and know nothing else about her other than perhaps oh she has lots of kids or maybe think she’s a bit odd but in a good way or remember some vague old didn’t she?….

        I partly see your Western culture thing, but don’t completely agree. Your answer about your neighbours & friends is very telling to me considering where you’re from & in what light they’d view Pitt. I think it’s very telling that this site from all accounts tends to be an outlier when it comes to opinion because of the international makeup of the posters. Yesterday some made observations about the Yougov most admired poll , and Angelina’s presence at the top. I got the point that was being made but to me it’s all relative, it depends who you ask and where they are from & what you ask, but I understood the point being made. As a fan I don’t care about the outcome of the poll as such , it’s all meh but just reiterated a point about Angelina’s international standing , that she’s topped the poll the last 3 years in a row. It was Lucy I think that made an excellent point about what fields most of the women in that poll came from as opposed to the men & the lack of diverse representation in general.

        As for Angelina being a lightening rod, I agree but I think we all know why that is for the most part , it’s mostly rooted in misogyny. Also Angelina marches to her own drummer & most people can’t handle that , plus coupled with other things. I’m in no way saying everyone that doesn’t like her is some evil misogynist of course and people are allowed to not like as either an actress, director etc or as a person from what they think they know about her. Sorry this is just of real interest to me, so I have lots of thoughts/ opinions and theories and I fully own my bias. We’re talking about Angelina, but my opinions/ theories extend to Beyonce and a few other famous women. I think she’s amazing and a good person. Not perfect of course far from it, and I have no issues side eyeing her when warranted as I have many times over the years & don’t mind engaging with fair legitimate criticisms or observations. As for Pitt, he’s never done anything for me & I’ve never paid him much attention outside of him being AJ’s partner, I don’t find him interesting or charming. I think he’s handsome enough so get that. I don’t like him & have a few not nice opinions about him that I won’t share, but I don’t think he’s some evil demon either. I think Plan B does great work & commend him for that.

      • truth hurts says:

        @Joy, thanks for that intelligent post. That is how most people outside of the HW gossip sites or gossip shows. Most people see this woman as help for them if foreign countries. They don’t care or know anything else. The dignitaries she works with, the studio heads and UN don’t care who she is married to either. It is just a mess only for the same ole people who post on gossip blogs. Or those who hate her just because. It does not matter what she does some people can look at you and dislike you without knowing you.

      I agree if this is really true and Ms. Oxman is really interested in Pitt. It not only makes her seem less intelligent than she is rumored to be but also fame hungry.

      What kind of woman doesn’t care how this might affect the man’s 6 children, a woman who does not give a damn about kids or their feelings.

      I think brads latest pr stunt just exposed his true colors……now the past thirty years make sense. You can see him climbing that ladder and using those women….then throwing them Under the bus when it’s done. He never wanted to be a dad…. and it’s so clear. He is just some calculating narcissistic dude….who needs more more more. So gross.

      You can see how he thinks now. By sidling up to these ladies he thinks he actually takes on their traits. That’s psychotic. And manipulative.

      • Carmen says:

        I have to disagree with you about Brad never wanting to be a dad. I think at the time he hooked up with Angie he very much wanted to be a dad. But now the kids are cramping his style. Like most emotionally immature people, he wanted to have his cake and eat it too: be a dad and be Hollywood’s golden boy jetting off to do whatever he wanted whenever he wanted. When all is said and done, he’s a self-indulgent narcissist going through the world’s longest midlife crisis.

    • Fa says:

      He is using the same narrative Clooney used for Amal, he said he found his equal in Amal.

He’s trying to force himself on the public when his time has passed. It’s insulting as a consumer to be worked by a greedy narcissistic actor. It’s one thing to star in a movie….it’s another to convince yourself you’re some sort of god….and victim. He can’t rewrite history. And we’re smart enough to make our own assessments of Brad after having him shoved down our throats for thirty some odd years.

    • Carmen says:

      He’s way out of his depth. He can’t keep up with her. What surprises me is she seems to be playing along with this farce. What’s in it for her besides tabloid exposure, and why would anyone with any self-respect want that kind of publicity?

      • citney says:

        @Carmen

        The fact Ms. Oxman IS playing along with Pitt’s PR strategy makes me side eye her. Just because a person has degrees does not mean they have common sense.

      • Carmen says:

        @citney: She’s obviously lacking in the latter. It’s hard to fathom she’s this desperate for publicity. It’s exactly the kind of publicity she doesn’t need. She’s not elevating Pitt to the status of brainiac; quite the contrary. He’s dragging her down to the status of being Brad’s latest squeeze.

      • KLO says:

        @Carmen if fame is what she wants then why not? She has already made a name for herself with some real accomplishments and i see no harm in her wanting to have a bigger platform to promote her work and herself.

        @KLO: There is all kinds of fame and I don’t see how being plastered all over the tabloid covers for being the new squeeze of a superannuated Hollywood golden boy is going to help her professional career any.

    I can’t, he is worse than Clooney pr

    “Neri is a very passionate, extremely smart and talented woman. She is very extroverted, outgoing, vivacious and loving.”

    “Men and women love Neri. She has a way of making you feel as if you’re the only person in a crowded room,” the pal added. “Being around Neri is intoxicating as if you’re flying high above the mountains.” The insider revealed that Pitt has fallen for her charm and that now “you can hear his grin” when speaking to him.

  46. Gal says:

    I’m thinking that they make quite a lovely couple and maybe Brad needed to get involved with women that were not in Hollywood.

  47. Jag says:

    Brad has always tried to make it sound like he was an intellectual, especially when he first started talking about architecture so long ago. He really ramped it up a notch when he started being papped with Angelina, too. So this is definitely par for the course.

    I don’t see what they have in common other than their love of architecture, but maybe they’ll surprise us.

    Shouldn’t be too hard.

    Another middle age crisis poster boy.

  49. Anare says:

    This headline, Lol! On one hand it makes him sound like a pompous jerk. On the other hand I think there are lots and lots of women who could challenge him intellectually. Most of those women would find him dull company.

  50. All lies says:

    Seriously, when I read that blurb how he likes a woman who can challenge him in the intellectual department, I can’t help but think he’s shading JA once again. Kill two birds with one stone here. First, it’s his way of debunking those rumors of them getting back together, lol. Been there, done that. Nah not gonna going back to that boring life again. And secondly, trying to convince AJ and the world that he can do better than her. Look over here, I am with a real professor who has a PH.D degree. You know that little boy in grade school who’s trying to get attention of the prettiest girl in class by being naughty. Pathetic. Can’t imagine I would say this but his two exes are better off without him for real.

    BP had never in his adult life confronting anyone to their face. His MO is Mr Nice Guy. So when a Pitt source leaked that he confronted Harvey after his ex fiancé told him about the harassment, I busted out laughing so hard. Can you imagine he’s doing? Not in a million year. He’s too passive aggressive to ever doing it. Nope, he will have his PR machine do it for him. His hand will be clean and always come out smelling like roses.

  51. EMau says:

    Gee that would be every woman on this planet surely. He isn’t sharpest tool in the shed.

    • Tata Mata says:

      He isn’t the only actor who appears to be somewhat daft according to his interviews. But that appearance allows actors to deflect questions or to re-interpret them without annoying the interviewer. While at the same time the seemingly daft celebrity or politician comes across as harmless and no-better-than-average which is appealing to lots of audiences.
      My friend who works in pr told me this. She also said that you should never believe in this daft-average-Joe act, especially when the interviewed person in question is a politician.

  52. truth says:

    A woman who challenge him ? And especially in the intellect department ?
    Well…Juliet Lewis..she is/was ‘rockn’roll’ so maybe a bit challenging..Angelina Jolie alright..at least she is curious, travel a lot..is interested in geopolitics..but the others…NAH !
    Gwyneth can do well in some good movies (but she doesn’t write or direct them)..and i liked a lot Rachel Green on Friends..but challenging..they are NOT and intellectual ?? Lmao…NO.

    So maybe he will try with a college teacher..but this time he has to buck up..good luck Brad !!

  53. truth hurts says:

    Overkill and too much hype and planted paid stories. He is crippling himself before he starts to walk again.
    I again would seriously advise him not to go too far with the dating and now intellectual stuff. Are you reading interns. Be smart enough to realize that reading some sites and twitter is not concrete. The attention span of people these days are a minute long. I know this one is probably not to popular with Pitt. So there.
    Every other month there is a story of someone new. This was leaked very conviently at the same time Angie (and the kids) are involved in a docu with her majesty.
    Talk about wanting to rain on her parade.

  54. truth says:

    Ok i just saw pictures of her..and she is REALLY BEAUTIFUL…i would say more beautiful than his former model/actresses partners..so now Brad is interested in a BEAUTIFUL AND SMART woman..the best of the world for him..i guess he like a lot her ‘intellectual’ side but he LOVE her good looks side as much..shallow Brad..but shallow Brad who want to be seen as also smart..haha.

  55. .. says:

    Yes… he needs someone his own age……fifty five or so…..

  56. .. says:

    No well respected person in Hollywood would be caught dead with him…and at this point he’s just so tainted…….yet he still thinks he’s got it. Must be hard keeping up the charade.

  57. j says:

    bradley p’s pretentious douchebag playbook:
    1. fetishize some quality of a woman (beauty, intelligence, fame)
    2. reduce the woman to that quality alone
    3. get bored like all pretentious douchebags eventually do
    4. tell everyone you were so much better than her all along

  58. d says:

    This guy. When you have to talk about your smartness, you are not smart. This is high-school level BS and it’s astounding to me that a man this age is allowing this for his PR rehabilitation. What about the fact that he’s a dad? All this hoopla suggests to me only that he DIDN’T want to be a father and instead his image and one as a single man is more important to him than anything else. It’s appalling and I can’t believe whatshername is even getting involved with him. Jolie is well rid of him.

  59. Bloop says:

    LoL love the comments. It’s funny how Angelina was always blamed for the tabloid leaks but it’s very obvious that Brad Pitt was the leaker and attention ho. Does he have a movie coming out or what? Why this weird media storm about him possibly dating?

    Something must be wrong with that woman if she wants to be dealing with a man who doesn’t even have custody of his kids. One of the comments up thread says he has a good heart… But his family was investigated by CPS AND THE FBI because of him. Lmao

  60. Bloop says:

    I’m wondering what must be happening behind the scenes to make him come out with this media storm. Remember when the sienna Miller rumors were out there Angelina and her kids were in Namibia. So what is she up to that caused him to roll this mess out like this? Hmmm

  61. All lies says:

    This is a sidebar story but the professor had to pay 650k to her ex. The man also retained their joint bank account and home. Radaronline got a copy of their divorce paper. Of course, that story is buried deep amid BP’s PR planted bs how she is the best since sliced bread. Make one wonder why she had to pay him that much to get rid of him, hmmm.

    Yeah, people who are yelling at the top of the mountain saying they are deliriously happy then they’re not. On the contrary. And him using AJ as a standard of being happy with the new woman is just pathetic. Didn’t he use to say “Happiness is overrated ” He’s desperate to repair his image, going all out to look good. By doing this, he’s pretty much guaranteed that he won’t get joint physical custody. I think that’s what he really wants. Children would cramp his partying and his artistic hobbies. He’s gonna blame AJ for this cause she’s jealous of the new girlfriend and deny him joint custody. He’s a victim here. Boy just wanna have fun, lol.

  62. truth hurts says:

    I don’t side eye Oxman for anything she is getting plenty of press for this and hailed the saviour of Poor Pitt who was done wrong by the evil Angie. Angelina will always get that short stick when it comes to people like PItt and Aniston who have that golden image in HW and with the media. Wonder why the press went on a tear when they both became available again. Their image sells papers.
    No doubt they aren’t perfect in real life but that is what their PR people and agents want you to believe and they sell that. Remember they dug up all of BP former girlfriends to talk about how nice he was when Angie’s lawyer slammed him and somehow his vices were attributed to him being married to the witch.
    Since his fame came he has been associated with the most popular or beautiful woman at that time. This isn’t changed except now he wants to dabble in something other than actresses. Again I don’t see how any of those ladies stayed as long as they did. He is controlling and manipulative to me. I saw through him years ago. How he all of sudden wanted to be a humanitarian when he got with Jolie. He did that piece on Africa in that interview with Diane S which was laughable. He lost interest in that as soon as he contracted malaria in Africa. thed
    THe shots Aniston, Paltrow and Jolie have taken at him over the years are telling. Dumb, insensitive, vain, and image driven facade are all true. I really believe he is a selfish individual. I also think he loves his biological kids more than the adopted ones. I think he said something really horrible on that plane relating to one or more of them.
    If you take a look at them just weeks before the split they seemed ok maybe not perfect but from the CCTV and interviews. The immediate reports and people talking about that night shut up and disappeared quickly. Even the LAPD lied and said there was no investigation.
    Anyone else remember when the police responded I know at least three times to their residence. Each time it was either the panick button was pressed by mistake or a dog tripped an alarm,
    Anyone with sense knows the procedures of an alarm system…! They call before they come out. Period.
    I think they would fight when he was drunk and one of those kids would get afraid.
    Whatever the case she took those kids out of that situation for a reason and I applaud her for that even if they both were wrong. IF you can’t get along that is a bad vibe for the kids. She hints to that when she spoke about being in home where everything was light again.
    Good for her and him too. He was more stubborn for several reasons. Not wanting help or admitting he had a problem or that their marriage was failing maybe for many reasons. Him wanting to hang on for the wrong reasons didn’t help. Angie was like I can’t take this anymore and she got slammed hard like she always does.
    But in the end she won. Her kids are healthy, happy and she has gotten back to work. Brad seems healthier, maybe his relations with his kids have gotten better, he has a new girlfriend, and he is doing what he loves. I do however don’t think he is as happy as his agents are trying to infer. U can see it in his eyes and face. Sorry people Im sure he wants him family back even over Dr. Oxman but I think it’s too far gone to salvage esp with a woman like Angie who is so headstrong and also as stubborn.

    • Bloop says:

      Good point about the cops being called out to their compound numerous times. It’s weird how his fans still have the nerve to call AJ all kinds of names and accuse her of being a drug addicted cruel person. If she was on drugs she would’ve lost her kids just like he did. It’s obvious he’s not the good gentle guy his team is desperately trying to sell him as. Almost two years and he’s still needs supervised visitation according to Entertainment tonight. Bizarre.

      Also interesting that his team mentions Make it right foundation through people magazine. It’s a low key fact that the foundation was being sued and almost the whole MIR team left years ago.

  63. Candies says:

    Lol weak? Weak is who fear of losing control over others mainly because they are afraid for their own status. Now I dont think everyone has same reason.

    That said, nothing wrong with wanting interllectual woman if that is the deal.. As you get older and as per normal relationship you would want someone you can talk to too( not only you see) and if the person is someone who shares personal interest is more good not? Brad art love is long known. All seems is just panic as if he is taking something from you. He is not even taking anything from Angie anything direct because she is ex now.
    He is Hbuliding his own life and try to live as he choose it. I will wish all sucess for him because I dont see a reason that is that makes it he doesnt desrerve it. Besides all could be fake news..

  64. Candies says:

    The non abuse, the non cheat, etc.. Talk seem to me a mechanism to be in control over him and back in assocation than anything. May ve if there is another reason..

  65. Sunny says:

    @
    But what makes you think it already ended? There was no official news about it. Their reps didn’t say a thing.

  66. .. says:

    The I lost custody of six kids look…… is never a good look. He’ll never “look” good again. Those days are long gone. Anyone interested in this guy now is just showing their true colors. Cha Ching!

  67. .. says:

    Smart women don’t help abusive jerks rehab their image. Period.

  68. citney says:

    @says

    So true, and that is exactly why I side eye Ms. Oxman for playing along with this utter nonsense.

  69. Molly says:

    If custody battle hasn’t officially ended yet how do we know he lost 6 kids already?

  70. .. says:

    What’s makes you think it hasn’t ended. Seems done to me.

  71. Molly says:

    Why do you think it’s done? There was no official announcement, no news.
