Reports that Brad Pitt and Andra Day were seen “flirting” and exchanged numbers at the Academy Awards ceremony last April were news to Andra Day. Speaking at Entertainment Tonight from last night’s BET awards, Andra had to be reminded that they’d ever even met but complimented him on his beautiful gowns all the same. Yes, not only did Andra win a Golden Globe and get nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of Billie Holiday, but she also has a killer Aretha Franklin impression in her repertoire. What’s more, she’s also got a serviceable Mariah Carey “I don’t know her” in her toolkit to boot.
According to ET:
Don’t expect to see Andra Day on Brad Pitt’s arm anytime soon! The 36-year-old musician and actress spoke to ET’s Kevin Frazier at Sunday’s 2021 BET Awards about the recent rumor that she is dating the 57-year-old Oscar winner.
“Oh my gosh, child, especially because we’ve never met,” she quipped of Pitt. “So I was like, ‘Oh, alright.’ My sister actually hit me up after, she was like, ‘You met Brad Pitt?’ I said, ‘I guess so. I guess we did.'”
As if this weren’t confirmation enough that there’s nothing going on between the pair, Day added, “We’re not dating. We don’t even know each other. It is hilarious. It was thin air. Somebody was bored that day.”
Despite not being romantically involved with Pitt, Day did praise the star, saying, “He’s great, though, super talented, wonderful.”
Here’s the video of Andra saying those words above:
Andra probably saw Brad’s little struggle ponytail up close and completely blocked it from her memory for her own psychic well-being. When asked about it, she chose to keep it classy by saying something positive. Needless to say, we can add Andra’s name next to Shania Twain and Yuh-jung Youn on the list of ladies who really aren’t that impressed by Brad Pitt.
