Anyone who is linked to "The Brad Pitt" gets the attention and scrutiny that many can't handle. Brad Pitt knows that it is a fact for being an A-list actor. The latest celebrity that is being linked to the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood actor is Arrested Development actress Alia Shawkat and Pitt is reportedly worried about her.

According to Life & Style, Pitt decided not to rush his relationship with Shawkat because he is aware that it could turn into a media circus. Pitt is worried about how the actress handles the scrutiny that comes with dating a multi-awarded actor. The tabloid added that Shawkat should better "brace herself" because of her blooming romance with Pitt.

It may sound sweet of Brad to worried about the actress, but the reality is there is no truth about the story. Gossip Cop pointed out that there is no reason for Pitt to be worried that Shawkat would be scrutinized by the public since they are not really dating.

Pitt and Shawkat have been rumored to be dating after they were recently photographed attending several events together. They were seen at Kanye West's Nebuchadnezzar opera at the Hollywood Bowl and the Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles.

There were earlier speculations that the Ad Astra actor had also introduced the Duck Butter actress to his parents. Shawkat allegedly met Brad's parents when they both visited them in Missouri late last month.

This story has been busted as well. Gossip Cop cited Pitt's rep as saying the actor was not dating Shawkat and added that that the two are just friends.

A source also confirmed to People that Pitt and Shawkat are just friends and the Moneyball actor has no intention to date his friends. The insider said Brad just loves to hang out with his artist friends like Shawkat. Some of his artist friends are women but it doesn't mean he date them.

Reports also have it that Pitt is currently enjoying his life being single. At the moment, he would like to focus on his children and improving his relationship with them rather than finding a new woman in his life.

Since his split from Angelina Jolie in 2016, Pitt has been linked to several other women. He was rumored to be dating actresses Kate Hudson, Ella Purnell, Sienna Miller, and Charlize Theron. He was also speculated having a relationship with jewelry designer Sat Hari Khalsa. Also, Pitt is reportedly rekindling his romance with former wife Jennifer Aniston.
