There’s a chance for another Brad and Jen, but this time it isn’t Jennifer Aniston and if rumours are to be believed, Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt are now an item.
Both stars are newly single; Lawrence recently split from director boyfriend Darren Aronofsky and Pitt is in the process of divorcing longtime partner and wife of two years, Angelia Jolie.
Rumours of their romance began on Wednesday and it is believed that “Brad has had his eye on Jennifer for years. [They] have been enjoying lots of late nights together. There’s an intense connection between them!”
An insider also told media outlets that Pitt allegedly reached out to Lawrence after getting her phone number from a mutual friend. The source added that Pitt was nervous to contact Lawrence, but was encouraged by friends to make the first move.
According to The Sun, Lawrence broke up with Aronofsy after a year of dating due to their great age difference. But age hasn’t seemed to stop Lawrence before. Before dating Aronofsky, Lawrence had a short fling with Coldplay lead singer and Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex-husband, Chris Martin — Paltrow being another common thread between her and Brad.
Prior to dating Martin, Lawrence dated her 28-year-old “X-Men” co-star, Nicolas Hoult, on and off for five years. The two ended their relationship in August of 2014.
The Sun also reported that sources close to Pitt have denied the dating rumors and said that he and Lawrence are not together.
