It was the break-up that shook Hollywood. But just a month ago, Brad and Angelina appeared to be getting back on track.
Brad has not been in a serious relationship since Angelina filed for divorce in 2016, but rumours of potential romances did circulate.
He was thought to be romantically linked to actress Ella Purnell but she has now denied this.
The 21-year-old has slammed claims that she is Brad’s new girl. A source close to the actress told The Mirror: “It’s completely made up. They’re not dating.”
According to The Mirror Brad first took interest in Ella when she stared in the 2016 film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
In a scenario that could only ever unfold in Hollywood, it also turns out she played a younger version of Angelina in the 2014 Disney film Maleficent.
It was in In Touch magazine that Brad and Ella’s ‘romance’ was first reported. A source told the magazine: “Brad had Ella in mind from the get-go. He went out of his way to cast her.
“Ella is incredibly flattered by all the attention she’s getting from Brad. She’s told friends he’s always been her No. 1 celebrity crush.”
But the insider also noted that Angelina was furious about the potential relationship. They told the magazine: “She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film.”
Now that Ella has openly dismissed the rumors, it is possible Brad and Angelina could continue to work on their marriage. The Mirror had contacted Ella and Brad for comment but were yet to receive a response.
