ET: Brad Pitt ‘isn’t looking for an actress as a lifetime partner’

I wanted to forget this, but I remember how much contradictory information there was last year about Brad Pitt and Neri Oxman. It felt like Team Pitt was out there, throwing rumors, denials, and vague “source” statements into the wind to see what would stick. Maybe it’s unfair to say that it was ALL Team Pitt, but some of it (if not most of it) was coming from his camp, and it was awful. Well, prepare to go through all of that again, because Brad wants us to talk about whether or not he’s dating Charlize Theron.

First off: The Curious Case of the Changing People Magazine Quote. It’s weird that those “sources” can’t even keep their story straight about Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt, right? Initially, an unnamed source told People Magazine: “About six months ago, they did a [Breitling] shoot together. So they have spent time together. But anything that may have happened beyond that remains to be seen.” Then, hours later, that quote was changed to this: “About six months ago, they did a shoot together. They have not been out together recently, and were never dating. Reports of them being involved romantically are false.” Huh.

Part of me thinks that this Charlize-Brad rumor won’t go on and on like the Neri Oxman nonsense because Charlize is a movie star, and thus, she has her own publicist and manager and whatever and she knows how all of this works. She will play the game for a second to help shill for the Breitling contract, but she’s also going to shut it down when it gets too stupid. Like the whole Sean Penn introduced themthing? Please. She hasn’t spoken to Penn in years. Which is what another “source” told Us Weekly: “Sean Penn definitely did not introduce them. Charlize has no relationship with Sean.” Bam. A source also told Us Weekly that the Theron-Pitt rumors are “not true.”

So, Brad tried it. He tried to convince us that he and Charlize would become Bralize/Chard and now that HER publicist has gone around and denied it, now Brad is playing the “I don’t even want to date an actress” card. Dude. From Entertainment Tonight:

Despite reports that Brad Pitt is dating Charlize Theron, sources tell ET that the two are just good friends at the moment.

“Brad and Charlize have known each other for years and recently became even better friends after working together,” a source says of Pitt, 55, and Theron, 43, who recently worked together on a photoshoot for Breitling watches. “They enjoy each other’s company and connect on many levels. Brad and Charlize have a lot of mutual friends and share their love of acting, but neither of them are ready for a serious relationship right now. They are both very single at the moment so it’s no surprise people are talking romance. They truly would make a Hollywood power couple, but at this point, they’re friends.”

When Pitt does decide to settle down again, however, he will likely date someone outside of the business, the source says, adding that he “isn’t looking for an actress as a lifetime partner.”

“He’s tried that route already, and while he loved both Jen [Aniston] and Angelina [Jolie] very much, and he grew tremendously as a person with both women, he is ready for something different,” says the source. “At the moment, he is all about his career and his children. He is working on several projects and spends every moment he can with his kids.”

[From Entertainment Tonight]

My take is that she shut him down? Like, they worked together and he made the approach and she was like “eh, no thanks.” And now he’s all “I WOULDN’T DATE AN ACTRESS AGAIN ANYWAY.” It will be interesting to see if the attempted Bralize Rollout stops here, or does he try to squeeze a few more weeks out of it?

    I love how you use the Brad-Crazy-Eyes picture every time.

  2. Maya says:

    Oh dear God, I had hoped that with the new year, Brad would stop with his desperate PR games.

    As for not dating actresses, not only has he only dated actresses for almost 3 decades, he is insulting the whole group.

    And Brad sweety, Angelina was the powerhouse behind Brangelina and you won’t enjoy the same level of attention again.

    She is the one with the powerful connections globally and her face is the one that generates the most clicks.

    Most of us frankly don’t care who you date but will seriously wait to see who Angelina’s next partner will be.

  3. KLO says:

    This is so pathetic. They say that narcissists only get worse when they age. Sadly Brad Pitt seems to be evolving into a great example of this. This is too bad, I liked him before I knew all the garbage about what an abusive prick he is in his personal life. ungh.

    Its funny how I never found him attractive either. I thought he was talented as an actor but i never understood why people would say that he was attractive. He used to have great abs, sure. The rest of it I just dont see.
    For example when he did Fight Club with Ed Norton, all I had eyes for was Edward. He used to be my main squeeze.

    LOL

    • Ariel says:

      Never found him attractive? Not even in Thelma and Louise?

      I too am amazed at how quickly my opinion of him changed- and how weird, clunky and creepy his pr has been since his white left him (following a drunk child abuse incident). He’s just- yuck.

      • KLO says:

        @Ariel yes, exactly, never found him attractive. I have seen Thelma and Louise and I thought he was skeevy and creepy and disgusting in that movie.
        I know it is supposed to be weird.
        I like to think that it is because I have a small nose myself and I dont get it why people are so crazy about small noses. I dont find it particularly attractive or more attractive than bigger noses.
        I personally much prefer men with bigger longer nosesthat look like Ed Norton or Joaquin Phoenix or Adam Driver.

        And yes, I agree that his PR has been an amazing disaster. its not like his reputation could not have been salvaged. Weird and amazing.

      • JustSayin' says:

        I don’t think it’s Brad’s nose people are attracted to lol
        He is known for his bone structure, jawline, smile and athletic body.
        He is older now, obviously and not as attractive as he once were.

      • CairinaCat says:

        He always looked like a little pretty boy to me, not sexual.
        I never really looked at him til he and Angelina got together, They seemed hot together for awhile. Except when he was in his dirty greasy mode or looking like a biker grandpa

    • KLO says:

      @JustSayin haha thanks for the clarification. I get what you are saying but when I think of incredible bone structure and smile I would rather go for Mads Mikkelsen.

      i am not arguing that Brad is not conventionally attractive, he sure is, I am just saying that he is not on the list of actors I personally find to be a “beautiful man”.
      But I have Vincent Gallo on that list so what do I know.

      In my heart I just find that Brad looks like a 3-year old with a beard. Or a buff Gollum with a good head of hair and nice teeth. There I said it.

      • noyouplum says:

        @KLO Vincent Gallo has been my crush since Buffalo ’66, I’m so glad I’m not alone there because every time I’ve admitted that, I get a “what the ffff” reaction from people.

      • Kebbie says:

        Omg Mads Mikkelsen’s face creeps me out so much lol

      • KLO says:

        haha @noyouplum and @Kebbie right on, I agree with both of you.
        And yes, noyouplum, I have been a fan of Gallos looks since Buffalo 66 too.

        Mads Mikkelsen is beautiful once you get used to his unique physique. He has a great “villain face” hehe

      • CloudAtlas says:

        I love Mads as an actor – he is one of the best – but no, he’s not hot. Agree with you guys who never found Brad Pitt attractive. He’s beautiful ojbectively speaking in films like River RTI and T&L and but I never liked pretty boys. Also he seems very wooden as a person. He’s a stronger actor now and was good in films like Benjamin Button and Interview WAV.

    • Lolamd says:

      You know I never found him attractive until he was with Angelina and had kids. Now I am just severely disappointed as I thought, mistakenly, that he was a good guy.

      • Loopy says:

        He was definately hot in the legends of the fall and seven..even fight club.

      • Kebbie says:

        He had that dirtbag look in Seven to me, but Legends of the Fall, Fight Club, Mr and Mrs Smith, and when he was at his prime as Benjamin Button, yum!

      • CloudAtlas says:

        Oh, yes, Legends of the Fall was during his “beautiful phase,” but personally I never found him hot either.

      • Andrea says:

        He was HOT in legends if the fall…It has been all downhill in the looks department for him since he got with Angelina honestly.

      • Lady D says:

        He is not attractive to me, blondes just don’t do much for me, but I am willing to acquiesce that during a brief phase of Benjamin Button, he was probably the hottest man on earth.

    • RunTrain says:

      I always thought Brad was too much of a pretty face for my liking. I like very manly looking men, not so beautiful. And now, he just skeeves me out.

  4. Esmerelda says:

    Why is his PR so focused on his relationships, anyway? He’s at a point in life where nobody really much cares about his hookups (and this is true for all the pretty boys of his generation) once you reach middle age it’s a little silly to lead with the heartthrob narrative… you should have a body of work to talk about by now, lead with that.
    Brad, face it, those days of mega stardom aren’t coming back. Try to age gracefully and become a better producer, that’s it. In a few years the tabloids will be focusing on your children’s love lives anyway.

    • Gaby says:

      His PR focuses on relationships because he got DUMPED by Angelina. SHE left HIM, and he is a bratty gown ass baby who cannot handle that so he is trying to prove to Angelina and everybody else that he is still desired and women would love to be with him.

      • DOMINCKO says:

        Exactly! His not dating actresses anymore is supposed to be a dig at Angelina i’m sure but guess what Brad she moved on the moment she dumped your pathetic ass

    • Mia4s says:

      “Why is his PR so focused on his relationships, anyway?“

      Probably because they can’t use the kids? It’s…interesting that custody is apparently settled and we still haven’t seen any photos. Not so much as a “candid” shot on the way into a restaurant. It’s…telling. You f**ked up Bradley.

      You’re right it’s a stupid place to focus. He’s a personal disaster zone, but he’s produced some very prestigious films this year. They should be trying to focus us on the professional. It’s ridiculous that they haven’t.

    • minx says:

      That’s what I was going to say. It’s so desperate. . He thinks he’s 20 years younger.

    • Chaine says:

      Right??? You’re fifty freaking five Brad, unless you get back together with JEN nobody cares!

      • Malak says:

        With JEN? That was many years ago. If Brad wants to be in the news, and talked about a lot, he should try to get his family back together. THAT would give him attention, but unless Angelina cooperates it’s not going to happen.

    • Christina says:

      Esmeralda, you snatched the words off of my brain. While the bad marriage is creeping out his handlers, their PR is creeping out a bunch of the members of the public. Maybe he has devotees who care, but this just looks and feels all sorts of contrived and weird.

    • CloudAtlas says:

      To preserve his hotness (to some people at least) factor for as long as possible.

  5. Sparkly says:

    He’s really delusional if he and his camp still think he’s one half of a “power couple”. He’s burned all his power couple bridges, and now he’s just too old, self-centered, abusive, and out of touch to expect that mantle to stay his size.

  6. Ali says:

    It’s really weird and desperate. I wasn’t going to not see his movies because he’s a not great dad if the movie looked good. Plenty of alcoholics have made compelling or entertaining work, I just so don’t care who he’s maybe not dating right now.

    • Hmmm says:

      His space movie is about a father/son relationship too. How is he gonna sell that one. I’m guessing that’s why it was pushed back so far.

      • Carol says:

        Worst come he will parade his dead friend Chris Cornell’s kids out at the premiere. He took them to Disney right after his ex Jolie went with their kids. Dude is pathetic.

        And he’s probably fuming that he’s not in the footnote in the NYT’s writing for Doctor Oxman and her billionaire hedge fund husband, lol.

    • CloudAtlas says:

      I never found him even mildly hot, not even when he was flaunting his six pack in Fight Club, but I will say this: he picks good projects and I will catch his films, odious, sleazy, and cheap PR or not. He hasn’t crossed the line into Bryan Singer or whatever category for me at least. I don’t believe he actually abused his kids.

  7. Ida says:

    Does anybody still care about that man? For me lost all his mojo in that plane. And his rubbish charity situation … well. Pitt jumped the shark ages ago.

  8. Arb says:

    Rejected, eh? Better luck next time bud

  9. Easy says:

    Angie take it easy. Its not bright to deny actual things.
    Like it or not people of his era or many wants to see his next girl…I like that he try to do something different like a non famous girl etc to see how that fits…he can always come back to it not?
    Dont be like ja was …
    This site has not always a real prediction whats out there

    • Dulce says:

      Its BRAD who is making a FOOL of itself!! What Angelina has to do with this story??, or what… Like a typical Brad’s fan, you are deflecting on Angelina??, because this is what you Brad’s fans always do; always blame Angelina for everything, right?? 🙄

    • Hmmm says:

      Actually it’s pretty funny how brad is the Jennifer Aniston in this situation. His fans always claimed she too was desperate to have people think she wasn’t lonely and was dating dating dating. His fans also accused her of throwing pity parties which is exactly what brad pitt does.

  10. Dv says:

    He’s so pathetic and delusional

  11. Who ARE These People? says:

    And what is a “lifetime partner” to anyone over a certain age? Unless Lifetime movies are his new professional direction, the term his semi-literate PR people are reaching for is “life partner.”

    • Kebbie says:

      Lol this made me laugh. It’s like when people say a 60 something year old man is having a midlife crisis…err..no.

  12. Lowrider says:

    The ET quotes are so Brads PR. Similar verbiage used with Sienna and Neri.

    “They enjoy each other’s company and connect on many levels. Brad and Charlize have a lot of mutual friends and share their love of acting, but neither of them are ready for a serious relationship right now. They are both very single at the moment so it’s no surprise people are talking romance.”

    The bit about power couple is how he sees himself. He will only hook up with women that can increase his fame.

    • CloudAtlas says:

      +1 I totally agree. This is quite entertaining. It’s trying to play up his appeal as a leading man. The tone, style, and choice of words are exactly the same.

  13. lucy2 says:

    LOL, how pathetic! Charlize wanted no parts of that and her people shut it down right away, so now his team is backtracking. I predicted yesterday there’d be an “he’s all about the kids right now” comment, and sure enough.

    “he grew tremendously as a person with both women” Oh please.

    I really feel like he was the boy who was never told no and always got away with everything, and when that finally came to a halt, he’s been floundering.

  14. Dr Mrs The Monarch says:

    I think the bigger let-down is that he didn’t get invited to be in Leo’s “pussy posse” when they worked together. The closest he got to the was getting photographed at a baseball game with his guy friends. (Brad really likes to imitate, doesn’t he?)

    It is also embarrassing that Charlize dated Penn for a while but Pitt couldn’t even get a pap stroll with her.

    • Hmmm says:

      The guy friend is a Scientology freak. Lmao

      I’m sure he will shut down rumors of not getting along with Leo but I don’t think they got along.

  15. Annalise says:

    This whole farce with Charlize Theron is just Brad’s pitiful attempt to prove to the world that he’s SO not butt-hurt about Neri Oxman getting married and expecting a baby a mere few months after Brad was singing to the world that Angelina had been “replaced”. And with someone more educated, NOT-an-actess-cuz-he’s-never-gonna-go-there-again-unless-of-course-this-thing-with-Charlize-works-out, and some might even say is prettier than Angelina. Until his new better-than-Angelina made a point of letting the world know, in a VERY public forum, that she is VERY much still with her boyfriend.
    Brad needs to get off these petty one-uppings and go repay all the poor people than got f$cked by his pathetic excuse for a non profit in NOLA. THEN maybe he’ll look like less of a douche and someone will actually WANT to date him.

  16. Hmmm says:

    The tea-He won’t date an actress because no A lister wants him. It’s a hard pill to swallow for Pitt his Pr team and his fans.

    ET apparently says the make it right foundation is doing wonderful.

    house is on fire and ET is sitting there like nothing is happening

  17. Liz version 700 says:

    Brad may want to look into hiring a Nanny with a tranquilizer gun as His next life partner. He is a hot mess. Dude fix yourself then get a life partner

  18. Michelle says:

    He is so selfish. It’s all about his ego. What about his kids? They see all this in the media, how do you think they feel seeing what their dad puts out there, so media & public can tear their mum to shreds, because that’s what happens every time his PR does this. Or wondering if this new woman is going to be part of their lives. A real parent doesn’t do that.

  19. Nuzzy says:

    But… if she’s not an actress, how will she fake it?

    “No, baby, you’re way hotter than you were in Thelma & Louise…”

    “Yeah, Angelina totally looks like she’s miserable and pining for you…”

    “No, honey, that happens to all guys… all the time… and I didn’t need just another freakin’ *fifteen seconds* of stimulation to be satisfied.”

  20. Helen says:

    oh man, i thought these types of silly PR games stopped after a certain age. get your life together, bradley.

  21. serena says:

    He’s borderline pathetic.

  22. Carol says:

    Never mind that Pitt promised these tabs some exclusives in exchange for favorable stories, they still throw in some shade whenever they can. Us weekly was printing an article earlier this week when the announcement of Dr Oxman got married. How she’s Pitt’s professor-crush got married and expected to her billionaire and Pitt was so smitten by her beauty and intellect after seeing her 3-D lounge chaise but the professor later ‘emphatically’ denied there was any romance between the two of them.

    These women literally run away from this pathetic man-child. They know a fake when they see it.

  23. truth hurts says:

    What you see from Pitt is that Pitt is soulfully lost and his PR is whack and really don’t know what to do. This mess with custody and the MIR foundation is unfixable. No matter how they smear Angelina, no matter how much they deny and deflect from MIR these things have taken its toll on him. I personally think he is miserable. This divorce has affected him greatly. He loved Angelina but most of all he loved the praise and adoration of that family unit.
    She cut him deep. Not intentionally but she chose those kids over the fame and took a huge punch by the media. Oh Brad is winning yet Angelina seems to be the happier one.
    People don’t realize how it hurts him that his wife,that he loved, didn’t want to be with him anymore and some of his kids. I don’t think he saw that coming and he is still reeling about that.
    Remember how he was looking after she left. IMHO he and Angie had a deep emotional relationship. She loved him, coaxed him, built up his ego. I don’t believe any other woman made him feel that way. He misses that one thing he took advantage of and neglected because he wanted to be a mogul. That is why he sank so fast. That is why he is so spiteful and hurt and wants to hurt her. But I do not think she cares about who is with and he knows that.
    He can be with CT but it won’t resonate like he and Angie. That did hurt his image and it won’t be that way again.
