While Brad Pitt appeared to be well and truly over his split from Angelina Jolie, the woman he's since been romantically linked to has poured cold water on claims they're dating.

Ella Purnell, who at 21 is a whole 32 years younger than the Fight Club star, was reportedly on her way to becoming Brad's girlfriend.

But Mirror Online can reveal there's no truth to the rumours.

"It's completely made up," said a source close to the British actress. "They're not dating."

In a truly bizarre twist of fate, Ella once played the younger version of Angelina in the 2014 Disney film Maleficent.

In Touch reported that the pair have fallen for each other and that 53-year-old Brad is "so enchanted" by Ella that he's cast her in his upcoming Starz series Sweetbitter.

It's said Brad first set eyes on Ella in the 2016 film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, in which she plays Emma.

The London-born star has also starred in Never Let Me Go as the young Ruth, in Churchill as Helen Garrett and in Kick-Ass 2 in 2013.

Mirror Online has contacted reps for both Ella and Brad for comment.

As yet, Brad has not been in a serious relationship since Angelina filed for divorce in 2016 following their 12-year marriage.

And so far, Ange has not been linked to anyone romantically, although Brad is thought to have had flirtations with Sienna Miller and a sculptor in Los Angeles.

"Brad had Ella in mind from the get-go. He went out of his way to cast her," a source told In Touch.

"Ella is incredibly flattered by all the attention she's getting from Brad. She's told friends he's always been her No. 1 celebrity crush."

At 21, Ella is only five years older than Brad's eldest child Maddox, which the magazine reports is a source of frustration for Ange.

"She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film," the insider added.
