Brad garners a new Jen!
Ange is going to go ape – Brad’s got a new Jen on his arm!
Brad Pitt has had his share of fun and flings in the two years since he and Angelina Jolie split. But his next conquest may just put him back on top of the Hollywood power couples list, as NW hears he’s dating none other than Jennifer Garner!
Yep, according to a close friend of the actor, the superstars have been secretly seeing each other for several months and enjoying hushhush rendezvous at the fivestar Beverly Hills Hotel.
“They have been meeting there at the Polo Lounge, and sneaking in the back so they go unnoticed,” says the pal. “It’s one of Brad’s favourite spots in LA and the perfect place for a romantic date. He’s really taken with Jen.”
And it’s easy to see why – Jen is basically Brad’s two ex-wives rolled into one!
“Jen’s a great girl,” notes the source. “She’s Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie combined. She has the girlnext-door nature of Jen, but she’s also a strong woman and action heroine like Ange. She’s kind and funny and genuine, and they have a lot of mutual friends who are saying she’s so his type.”
Whispers that the couple
might be an item first emerged late last year, after Jen, 46, and Brad, 54, were spied together at the exclusive Soho House in Malibu.
“Jen walked in with some girlfriends and sat at the bar for about 20 minutes before settling down at a table that Brad was at with a male friend,” an eyewitness to the encounter told OK! magazine. “As the night went on, everyone ended up swapping seats, and Jen and Brad were next to each other – looking extremely cosy.”
At one point, Brad even had his hand on Jen’s knee and was whispering in her ear.
“Jen and Brad connect on a deep level, and they’ve been secretly seeing where that could go,” confides Brad’s friend. “[They] just understand each other. He’s worked really hard on himself over the past couple of years, and she’s impressed by that.” At the same time, Brad has become a rock for Jen as she deals with her ex-husband Ben Affleck’s ongoing battle to stay sober. Of course, Brad’s had his own well-publicised struggle with alcohol, which means that he can understand what Jennifer is dealing with first-hand. While the pair are keeping the romance under wraps for the time being, we may even be able to size up their sizzling chemistry on the big screen. Word is that Brad wants Jen for a sequel to Mr. & Mrs. Smith, his 2005 action hit with Ange. “Brad really admires Jen and thinks she’s a great actress,” notes the insider. “That’s actually how Brad and Jen got together – he approached her about a film he’d like to do with her and they hit it off instantly.” Eek! While we’re we re all for a Mr. & Mrs. Smith 2 with Brad and his new flame, we’re not sure how Ange will take the news... n
