Does Renee Zellweger want to date Brad Pitt? One of this week's tabloids claims the actress has set her sights on the handsome movie star. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we've learned it's complete nonsense.
An alleged insider tells NW that Zellweger "thinks Brad is looking hotter than ever" and she's "desperate to get to know him properly." The actress, who's getting Oscar buzz for her Judy Garland biopic, "is praying they both get nominated this year so she can mingle with him at parties," adds the supposed source.
The anonymous tipster goes on to say that Zellweger has been crushing on Pitt for years but the timing has never been right, adding, "Now they're both single, who knows what could happen?" This same "insider" somehow also knows how Pitt feels about the actress. "He definitely thinks she's smoking - so if Renee made a play, he wouldn't turn her away," says the seemingly nonexistent source.
The unknown tipster continues, "They've each had their ups and downs, and have stepped away from the limelight to focus on themselves - so they'd get each other. You can bet if they're in the same room together, she'll be making a beeline for Brad. And she won't be shy about it either."
The tabloid's random storyline, which is based on the word of an untraceable source, is totally made-up. Gossip Cop reached out to Zellweger's spokesperson, who refuted the article and added, "Who comes up with this [expletive]?" Unfortunately, the answer is the fiction writers at NW, who have a habit of arbitrarily choosing famous women and claiming they want to date Pitt.
Just last week, Gossip Cop busted the outlet for creating a fake scenario about Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian fighting over Pitt. That phony article emerged after the actor attended Kanye West's church service. The Kardashian sisters aren't in any sort of showdown over the movie star.
Just last month, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for falsely claiming Pitt was going on secret dates with Margot Robbie, his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star. The actress is happily married. Earlier this year, the publication printed several untrue stories about Pitt dating Charlize Theron. The two stars were never a couple.
Also earlier this year, the untrustworthy tabloid insisted Pitt was in a secret romance with Julia Roberts. In reality, the actress has been committed to husband Danny Moder for the past 17 years. The above are just a few of the famous women that NW has linked to Pitt this year. Gossip Cop hasn't even mentioned the magazine's nonsense involving Jennifer Aniston.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
