A new tabloid report claiming Brad Pitt is "obsessed" with Margot Robbie is completely ridiculous. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this false claim. We're told it's silly.
According to OK!, Pitt is determined to make the actress his next leading lady, and he's actively trying to find a movie for them to star in together. A so-called "source" tells the magazine, "He thinks she's the hottest girl in Hollywood right now. Brad has had his eyes on Margot for years."
Robbie made a cameo in Pitt's 2015 movie, The Big Short, which he also produced. The alleged insider contends that the actor hired her for the role just "so he could spend time with the actress he's had a bit of a crush on." The supposed source goes on to say that Pitt "tried to woo her for numerous movie projects" following The Big Short, but the actor's then-wife Angelina Jolie prevented him from doing so. "It was a sore subject with Angie... Now that he's single again, you can expect Brad to go after Margot with a passion."
Pitt recently signed on to star in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Manson family movie, Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, which centers around the murder of Sharon Tate . Tarantino reportedly wants Robbie for the role of the slain actress, but she has yet to sign on. Still, the "insider" maintains that Pitt is "about to get his chance" to work with Robbie, despite nothing being official. Regardless of whether the movie stars end up working together, nothing about the tabloid's article is truthful.
Gossip Cop is told by a source close to the situation that Pitt doesn't have a fixation with the I, Tonya star, nor did his estranged wife ever prohibit him from working with her. This article was seemingly concocted because Pitt and Robbie could potentially be paired up on-screen together. However, the actor hasn't been frantically campaigning to make that happen.
It's worth noting, this isn't the first time OK! has made up a story about a leading man pursuing the actress. Gossip Cop recently called out the magazine for falsely claiming that Robert Pattinson was "crushing on" Robbie. This latest article involving Pitt is similarly fabricated.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
