Ellen DeGeneres Reveals She Dated One of Brad Pitt’s Ex-Girlfriends
Ellen DeGeneres and Brad Pitt have a few things in common: They’re natural blondes. They both have a certain comedic charm and stylish flair. Oh, and they apparently dated the same woman.
DeGeneres made the revelation on Sept. 13 when the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor stopped by her eponymous television show, and the comments are seriously juicy.
More on DeGeneres’ comments
The television personality broke the news as she and the actor reflected on how they first met.
“I remember a Melissa Etheridge pool party [in the late ’80s or early ’90s], where I think you were hitting on my girlfriend,” Pitt said.
“Was I hitting on your girlfriend, really?” DeGeneres said, smiling.
“I think so,” he replied. “I was flattered.”
Pitt probably expected that that would be the end of their exchange. But then the TV host dropped the bombshell.
“I actually since then have dated another one of your girlfriends,” she shot back. “We’ll talk about that later.”
“After the show,” he smiled.
A look at their dating histories
DeGeneres is currently married to actress Portia de Rossi. They dated for about four years before tying the knot in 2008. But before they were together, the TV personality dated Anne Heche and Alexandra Hedison.
Pitt, on the other hand, has most recently been linked to Charlize Theron. Before that, he dated Angelina Jolie, whom he married in 2014 following a nearly 10-year relationship. However, the actors, who share six children, broke up two years later. Jolie filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
Pitt has also reportedly dated celebrities like Jennifer Aniston (whom he was married to from 2000 to 2005), Thandie Newton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robin Givens, Christina Applegate, Jill Schoelen, E.G. Daily, Juliette Lewis, and Geena Davis.
So, which ex do Pitt and DeGeneres have in common?
Unfortunately, they didn’t say. But the talk show host later teased at the moment on her Twitter page.
“It turns out Brad Pitt and I have similar taste in women,” she wrote in a tweet containing a link to the clip.
Jezebel did an in-depth investigation to figure out which ex the celebrities have in common. But, sadly, their search turned up empty.
“After hours spent combing the archives, I’m still no closer to the truth!” wrote a Jezebel writer.
People want answers
As you can imagine, people are dying to know which ex these two have in common. After DeGeneres dropped the bombshell, many fans quickly took to Twitter to demand answers.
“Wow, now you made me curious about who that girlfriend was,” one person tweeted.
“Who is the mysterious ex-lover that #BradPitt and #EllenDeGeneres share?” another person asked.
“At the same time?….. now that would be news.,” quipped a third Twitter user.
And some people just couldn’t believe the revelation at all.
“How bout dat!” one woman exclaimed.
“oop,” commented another.
For now, it looks like DeGeneres and Pitt have decided to keep this under wraps. But if they ever choose to reveal their mutual ex, we’ll definitely let you know.
