However, in a new interview with Vulture, Shawkat made it clear that said relationship with the 56-year-old actor is purely platonic.
Alia Shawkat has always been rumored to be dating Brad Pitt, and she is finally revealing the real score between them.
The duo gave major couples whenever they made an appearance together and the similar happened when Angelina walked the red carpet, alongside then-husband and actor Brad, while proudly flaunting her baby bump in a lovely green gown at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008.
She said that initially, even her friends were curious about their relationship status.
"I think I've learned more about it in these last two weeks than I have in my whole life", Shawkat said.
The actress and Pitt, 55, were also seen together at Mike Birbiglia's solo show, a Thundercat concert, Kanye West's Nabuchadnezzar opera show, In-N-Out, and one of the gallery's shows.
Shawkat - who came out as bisexual in 2017 - said that she was shocked when the media circus got so out of hand that her friends were trying to get details about the alleged romance. "Brad and I are just friends", he explained later, weaving the plot of a plot that, however, did not fully convince the fans of the couple.
"All my friends were like, 'What's going on?' and sending me photos", Shawkat said. "It's that feeling of being naked in school, like, 'Oh my God, everyone's looking at me'". However, Shawkat says that she has received an "uncontrollable" amount of attention since the Pitt dating rumors started.
After meeting through filmmaker Spike Jonze, Shawkat and Pitt immediately clicked and became friends. "Brad loves the art world", the insider told PEOPLE. They added that Pitt is "very much about keeping friends as friends".
