AceShowbiz - Angelina Jolie apparently hates the idea of losing to estranged husband Brad Pitt in finding love again. The Oscar-winning actress is reportedly "determined" to find love as "it drives her crazy" that her estranged husband is ready to start dating again, a year after their highly-publicized split.
"Angelina's hyperaware of what Brad's up to, she's always trying to keep tabs on him," a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com. "They still have friends in common and she quizzes them for info. She knows Brad's ready to start dating again."
The source said that "it's a hard pill for her to swallow and that's got her wanting to do the same." The 42-year-old actress is "very competitive and hates the idea of him beating her to the punch. Plus it drives her crazy that he's emotionally moved on, since she really hasn't."
"Right now Angelina's still not started dating but she has been getting closer to pulling the trigger," according to the source, adding that "hearing Brad is looking to date again made her feel motivated to find someone, too."
"Even though her mind really isn't in that space she hates the idea of 'losing' to him," the insider continued." The mother of six allegedly has "started forcing herself to open her eyes and look around and a few guys have caught her eye."
This comes on the heels of 53-year-old Brad being rumored to have fallen for Angelina's young co-star in 2014's "Maleficent", 21-year-old Ella Purnell. The "Ad Astra" actor was allegedly "so enchanted" with the aspiring actress that he "jumped at the chance" to work with her when his production company, Plan B, develops "Sweetbitter", a drama about a New York City waitress.
Brad and Angelina married in August 2014 after being together for more than a decade. They tied the knot at their estate Chateau Miraval in Correns, France. They have six children together. After two years of marriage, the couple separated in September 2016, with Angelina requesting physical custody of their children in her divorce filing.
