It's hard to believe a year has passed since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. With both parties trying to pick up the pieces, it was only a matter of time before reports would surface about someone finding love again. Welp, it seems someone has, as rumors are swirling that Brad Pitt is fixated on 21-year-old actress Ella Purnell, who, coincidentally, has ties to Angelina.

  • The 53-year-old dad of six has apparently become smitten with Ella, which is definitely turning heads.

    "He's taking things as they come," a source tells In Touch Weekly. "He hasn't wanted to get serious with anyone."

    Brad reportedly cast the 21-year-old English actress in his upcoming TV series Sweetbitter after seeing her in films like Churchill and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. While Brad apparently is well aware of the "huge age difference," the source tells In Touch "he's taken with Ella's spunky, funny demeanor and formidable acting skills."

    "It's only a matter of time before Brad takes their relationship to the next level," the insider continues.

  • If you aren't familiar with Ella's work, her face might give you a case of déjà vu -- and for good reason.

  • The actress starred as a young Angelina in the 2014 Disney hit "Maleficent."

    Angelina Jolie played Maleficent, in case you didn't see the film.

  • And if what this source is saying *is* true, let's just say Angie ain't too happy about this "Bradella" news.

    "She's furious about Brad's interest in Ella and her being cast in Sweetbitter," the source mentions to In Touch. "She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film."

  • Ella might also make you do a double take as she resembles Marion Cotillard, the actress accused of having an affair with Brad Pitt.

    Marion dismissed affair rumors last year by revealing she was expecting another child with longtime love Guillaume Canet.

  • They do look like sisters.

  • Who knows if rumors that Brad is interested in someone 32 years his junior are true. Hopefully it doesn't get in the way of co-parenting with Angie.

    Maybe Brad and Ella are getting close for the sake of good television (*Kanye shrug*).
