Brad Pitt handpicked sexy Irish actress Ruth Negga for a part in his in-production science fiction flick Ad Astra —and the two have already formed an intense friendship that’s getting stronger each day! “Brad adores Ruth, whom he got to know through her partner,” English actor Dominic Cooper, “ and he bonded with her straight off the bat,” an insider exclusively told Radar.
“They’ve been over to his place in Los Feliz for dinner numerous times,” revealed the source, who notes Negga, 35, has also gone to his place without Cooper in tow. “Brad’s super picky about who he hangs with these days, but in Ruth he’s found a kindred spirit who challenges his intellect and ‘gets’ what he’s trying to do from a movie perspective, too,” said the source.
So does Pitt, 53, have any chance with the actress? “If she wasn’t attached he’d date her, no question,” said the insider. However, “What’s interesting is that Ruth and Dominic have had their ups and downs, So don’t be surprised if this is Brad’s next girlfriend down the line,” continued the source.
