Brad Pitt was only two weeks shy of graduating from the University of Missouri back in 1982 when he decided to skip town and head to Hollywood to become an actor. Now it looks as though Pitt is, in a way, going back to school, with reports saying the A-list celeb has been spending time on campus with new girlfriend, MIT Professor Neri Oxman. Between Good Will Hunting and now Pitt, we really need to start hanging around the MIT campus more. Leading men are everywhere!
Reports about the alleged couple have been swirling for a few weeks, with sources initially saying the pair were just friends. Now US Weekly is confirming the two are in fact romantically involved, with Pitt seen leaving Oxman’s Cambridge apartment, with Oxman reportedly giving Pitt a key. You know it’s serious when a key exchange is involved. He must have picked her up from the airport recently.
According to US Weekly, “Brad’s absolutely smitten by her. Their chemistry is off the charts.” Do people still stay smitten? We’re gonna go with, he *likes* likes her.
The pair have reportedly been together since the fall of 2017, when Pitt initially showed interest in Oxman’s design of 3D printed chairs. Let’s hope Oxman knows how to print in bulk, considering Pitt’s family includes six children.
While we don’t know much about Oxman, we do know that the 42-year-old professor teaches media arts and sciences at the Massachusetts school’s Media Lab. We’re also guessing that her class attendance has likely been on the rise, with students attending to audit her lectures and definitely not hoping to catch a glimpse of Pitt. Nope. We’re sure no one is doing that. So…what days does she lecture?
According to the reports, the couple hasn’t spent all their time in Massachusetts. They’ve also traveled together, with Pitt recetly accompanying Oxman to South Africa where Oxman was a keynote speaker at the Design Indaba conference.
No word yet on whether Pitt’s children that he shares with ex Angelina Jolie have met Oxman, but we kinda feel like Jolie would approve of her kids spending time with the professor.
