It’s the Hollywood coupling that fans have been waiting for – and now it’s finally come true!
New Idea can exclusively reveal Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock have discreetly started seeing each other, with the pair taking things ‘to the next level’ after a string of secret dates and private phone calls.
The mum-of-two is said to have quietly ended her 18-month romance with photographer Bryan Randall earlier this year, leaving her free to pursue Brad in the wake of his messy split from wife Angelina Jolie.
‘It’s fair to say that Brad and Sandra have always had a soft spot for each other,’ a source says.
‘They’ve always moved in the same crowd but the timing has been wrong – either he’s been with someone, or she has. But now they’re finally free to take their chemistry to the next level.’
Insiders confirm it was mutual friend George Clooney who gave the pair the nudge to take their friendship further.
It’s believed 53-year-old Brad is consulting on George’s new movie Ocean’s Eight – which stars Sandra, 52 – giving the Oscar winner the perfect opportunity to hook his two friends up.
‘It was George who set Brad up with Sandy,’ says a well-placed showbiz insider.
‘George and Brad have been friends for years and have been talking a lot lately, while Sandy has been keeping close ties with George, who’s a producer on Ocean’s Eight, and – bam! – the opportunity was there.
‘Brad and Sandy were getting along so well at his charity event a couple of years ago. Everyone thought they were on fire! Of course, nothing came of it at the time. But the door’s wide open now that Ange is out of the scene.
‘George is determined to help heal Brad’s heart, and couldn’t think of anyone better than Sandy.’
