We all know the only things that gets Brad Pitt excited these days are his bong and a Frank Lloyd Wright blueprint. Oh, that’s right. He’s sober. OK, fine, just the blueprint. While Brad maybe/maybe not finalizes his divorce with Angelina Jolie, he’s been getting close with an MIT professor. Gird your loins, Boston. There might be a new guest looking for directions to the Freedom Trail.
Page Six says Brad has hit it off with Neri Oxman, a so-called rock star professor, architecture and artist. Here she is talking about nerd stuff:
They met at an MIT architecture program after he was referred to her to help out on a project he was working on. Brad, as you know, is a huge architecture buff and does admirable shit like building affordable housing for people in need like in the Lower 9thWard in New Orleans. Before everyone starts making assumptions that Neri is stroking Brad’s drafting pencil all night long, sources say those two are keeping it strictly professional:
“Their friendship has not turned into romance … as both are cautious and this is, again, more of a professional friendship, but Brad is very interested in spending more time with Neri, she is fascinating.”
Part of what is fascinating about Neri to me, is if you squint, she kinda looks like Angelina in Gia. Neri was previously married, and she is also said to have created the term “Material Ecology” (whatever the fuck that means). She’s also had her art displayed at fancy-ass places like MoMA, the Pompidou in Paris, and Boston’s own Museum of Fine Arts. Brad bared nipple in Thelma & Louise. Kidding, kidding, these two sound like a match made in art BS-ing, scooter-riding at Burning Man heaven!
