Over the weekend, the actor, 55, was spotted at an art gallery with Shawcat, 30, following multiple reported outings together.
A source close to Pitt insists, “They are absolutely just friends.”
While it’s not clear how they met, the actors visited an exhibit at the Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles, according to an Instagram post from a fellow attendee. Meral Melika Duran, an EU strategist, posted pictures of Pitt and Shawkat at the exhibit where he met the artist behind the work, Martin Werthmann.
“Supporting arts & artist as usual. Thank you Brad Pitt for joining us. Had the pleasure to introduce my great artist friend Martin Werthmann to Brad (please check out his work). Had a very interesting conversation with Brad. Like [his] positive attitude,” she wrote next to four shots of Shawkat and Pitt mingling with the artist and other guests.
In one photo, a casually dressed Pitt is seen standing near Shawkat as they both chat with different people. In another, they appear to be talking to each other.
