it seems like Brad Pitt and his new pal Neri Oxman have known each other for a while.
The 54-year-old actor was spotted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in November, where Pitt seemingly dropped by one of Oxman’s classes the just a week after Thanksgiving. Many students shared photos of the actor posing with students, including one photo in which he is standing next to Oxman.
An architect, who has knows Oxman work and seen her lecture told People, “She’s genius and gorgeous.”
The actor was spotted wearing the all-black outfit, he was all smiling along with the students for several snaps. Pitt also stood next to Oxman in another shot with his hands behind his back posing along with the larger group. The picture has since been deleted.
Last week, Page Six first reported that Pitt and Oxman had developed a bond of friendship based on their shared love for architecture. The actor reportedly first the 42-year-old Oxman through an architecture project at MIT, where Oxman works as a professor of media arts and sciences at the school’s Media Lab.
A source told Page Six TV that The two has struck up a friendship over their love for architecture and design, adding that the duo’s relationship “is best described as a professional friendship.”
The source noted that their friendship isn’t romantic in nature, the actor is “interested in spending more time” with his new friend Oxman.
Oxman used Pitt and George Clooney’s names as examples of the tendency of human to idolize male icons in an interview with W Magazine back in 2017. She opened up about the male dominance issue and how the issue isn’t specific to the field of architecture.
She said, “For the same reason we have the Brad Pitts and the George Clooneys, it’s just part of human nature to idolize stereotypes.”
She went on to explain, “Such singularities are useful to the common perception of heroism. But it’s not only true for architecture; it’s true in musical composition, for females working in theater, for film directors. This isn’t just a disease of the architecture profession; it’s a phenotype of human culture and how we develop stereotypes and perceptions.”
