He isn't dating Kate Hudson, and may stay single for a while following the shocking news that his wife of two years and partner of 12 Angelina Jolie was filing for divorce, but Brad Pitt has reportedly already determined what he wants whenever he moves forward with someone new.
According to Hollywood Life, the actor is going to be seeking something very different from what he had with Jolie when he decides he's ready to date again.
"Brad is still getting his legs underneath him after Angelina hit him with a wrecking ball, but eventually he will date again," a source told the site. "One thing is for sure, the next woman he dates will be nothing like Angelina. He was seduced by her darkness and intensity but after years of all the drama he wants to be around posirive people. Brad is looking for someone to bring light into his life after all the drama. He just wants it to be easy and loving. At this point in his life he realized all the other stuff is a waste of time."
The news about what Pitt is seeking from a new relationship comes after rumors he and Hudson had been hooking up were swiftly debunked, and after Pitt was cleared completely by both the LAPD Department of Family and Child Services, as well as the FBI, for alleged child abuse after an altercation with his and Jolie's eldest son, Maddox, on a family flight from Paris approximately one week before Jolie filed for divorce. The pair are going to be locked in a custody battle over Maddox and their five other children-Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne-because Jolie has requested sole physical custody, while Pitt is asking for joint custody.
Jolie and Pitt first got together in 2004 after meeting on the set of their movie Mr. And Mrs. Smith, and while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. The pair split in early 2005 and Jolie and Pitt went public soon after. They married at their French estate in 2014.
