Brad & Ju­lia’s se­cret ro­mance!

Se­cret dates! On­line flirt­ing! It’s get­ting harder for the pair to hide their ‘amaz­ing chem­istry’...

NW - - Hot Shots -

Brace your­selves! Buzz is build­ing about a new celeb pair­ing – and it’s none other than Brad Pitt and Ju­lia Roberts. Yep, they’ve been good pals for years but spec­u­la­tion is grow­ing that things are heat­ing up be­tween the Hol­ly­wood hot­ties.

An in­sider tells NW the two su­per­stars, who first met on the set of The Mex­i­can al­most two decades ago, have grown in­sep­a­ra­ble re­cently.

It comes as Ju­lia, 51, has re­port­edly reached break­ing point in her mar­riage to cam­era­man Danny Moder, while Brad, 55, ties up the terms of his messy divorce from An­gelina Jolie.

“Brad and Ju­lia have been friends for years, but lately they’ve got­ten a whole lot closer and ev­ery­one’s taken no­tice,” a source tells NW. “They talk and text con­stantly, and not just about pro­fes­sional mat­ters. It’s widely known she opens up to him about any ten­sions or prob­lems in her per­sonal life, while she’s been a rock in help­ing him stay strong dur­ing his hor­rific divorce bat­tle.”

Pals say that they’re both ex­cep­tion­ally pri­vate peo­ple who would shoot down any talk of a se­cret af­fair, but in­sid­ers have di­vulged that they have “un­de­ni­able elec­tric chem­istry and a very pow­er­ful bond”.

“They share a lot of the same friends, as well as an in­tel­lec­tual yet fun ap­proach to life and love,” spills the source. “It’s fair to say they’re made for each other and are two huge ro­man­tics with a whole lot of love and re­spect for each other.”

Ju­lia did lit­tle to dis­pel the ru­mours as she posted Brad a gush­ing pub­lic birth­day mes­sage on In­sta­gram shortly be­fore Christ­mas. “Happy birth­day to one of the all-time GREATS,” the ac­tress cap­tioned the photo. Tellingly, she signed off with heart emo­jis and the word “LOVE” em­bla­zoned in cap­i­tal let­ters, along­side a sym­bol of a birth­day cake.

Ju­lia also sang Brad’s praises when asked in a re­cent in­ter­view which fel­low Hol­ly­wood celebrity she most ad­mires, giv­ing his name with­out hes­i­ta­tion and adding, “He’s per­fect.” And if that’s not enough, the pair raised eye­brows back in early Novem­ber when they cud­dled up on the red car­pet of a Hol­ly­wood movie screen­ing.

“Tongues have wagged in the past about the true na­ture of their friend­ship, be­cause Brad and Ju­lia have such a strong con­nec­tion,” says the in­sider. “They drifted apart while he was mar­ried to An­gelina be­cause she didn’t love him hav­ing a lot of girl­friends, but these days they’re closer than ever.”

And in­sid­ers say Ju­lia is in awe of the way Brad has han­dled his divorce bat­tle, es­pe­cially as it’s no se­cret she’s been deal­ing with on­go­ing ru­mours of prob­lems with her own hubby. “If Ju­lia’s mar­riage is as shaky as it seems to be, she’s ob­vi­ously play­ing with fire by get­ting so close to Brad,” adds the source. “It’s as though she’s risk­ing ev­ery­thing for him, be­cause Danny has got to find this a very awk­ward and threat­en­ing sit­u­a­tion to deal with. Whether or not he puts up with it in the long term re­mains to be seen.”

As for Ju­lia and Brad, “They’ve been each other’s rock and are al­ways laugh­ing when they’re to­gether,” says NW’S in­sider. “If things ended be­tween Ju­lia and Danny, who knows where this could go?” ■
