Inside Brad Pitt And Nicole Poturalski's Relationship

Legendary actor Brad Pitt has been stealing our hearts in films like Thelma & Louise and Legends of the Fall since the early '90s. We saw him marry and divorce America's sweetheart and Friends star Jennifer Aniston. Pitt then became involved with global sex symbol and philanthropist Angelina Jolie, whom he eventually married (and later divorced), sparking "Team Jen" and "Team Angelina" mayhem for years — leaving us bitterly divided even to this day. The heartthrob was even once engaged to actress and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow, who admitted on The Howard Stern Show (via Vogue) that she messed their relationship up and that Pitt was "too good" for her. 

Now, two ex-wives later, the actor seems to be taking a break from his baby mama drama while frolicking around with German model Nicole Poturalski, who strikingly resembles a young Angelina Jolie with her long brown hair, thin frame, and full lips.

Will this romance last? Who knows, but let's look into this sexy coupling. Read on for a peek inside Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski's surprising relationship.

Brad Pitt's girlfriend Nicole Poturalski is in an open marriage with a German restaurateur

After reports swirled that forever heartthrob Brad Pitt was dating German model Nicole Poturalski, who is nearly three decades his junior, according to In Touch Weekly, the world was set into a tailspin. Then we found out that the sultry model is apparently married to a much older man named Roland Mary, a German restaurateur 41 years her senior, as the Daily Mail pointed out. Next, we heard that Mary — who has reportedly been married several times and has five kids — and Poturalski are reportedly in an "open marriage," according to the Daily Mail, and bam, people were stunned. 

As Daily Mail also noted, the model allegedly is quite "philosophical" about the whole open marriage deal, and husband Mary reportedly gives his blessing. According to a source, "He has been married several times and has five children. He is not interested in negativity or jealousy." Phew, talk about a hall pass!

This is how Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski first met

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski reportedly first met in August 2019 at Borchardt, a Berlin restaurant that Poturalski's husband, Roland Mary, owns, according to the Daily Mail. The actor was allegedly "mesmerized" by the German beauty when he laid eyes on her at Mary's restaurant. Pitt had apparently cozied up there while filming 2009's Inglourious Basterds, as Daily Mail also shared, and he'd become friendly with the "flamboyant" Mary. Interestingly, the restaurant now carries Pitt's Château Miraval Rosé Provence wine (from his and Angelina Jolie's vineyard in the South of France), as noted by Page Six.

People, however, reported that Pitt and Poturalski were actually first spotted together at a party following the August 2019 Berlin premiere of the movie Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. They were allegedly "very flirty" at the star-studded event, according to one of the magazine's sources.

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski are both parents

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski have one huge thing in common... they're both parents! Pitt has six kids with ex-wife Angelina Jolie. Maddox, Pax, and Zahara are adopted, while Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox were birthed by Jolie. Although the Jolie-Pitt clan had some hard times in the wake of their parents' divorce and subsequent custody battle, the actor is a loving dad who appears to be doing his best to be a good man for his kids. A source told Entertainment Tonight, "Brad's kids are the most important thing to him. He tells his friends he learns so much about life from his own children."

Poturalski is a mom to a son named Emil, who has appeared on his model mom's Instagram, as reported by Daily MailEmil is reportedly the only child between Poturalski and her husband, Roland Mary, as noted by International Business Times

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski are both world travelers

Brad Pitt has been toting his brood all over the world for some time, filming movies, attending premieres, and setting up camp at his and his ex-wife's various properties scattered around the globe. There's the breathtaking Château Miraval in the South of France, which boasts a vineyard, as Glamour noted. The couple also lived in a French Quarter mansion in New Orleans in 2006, followed by a Waldorf Astoria apartment purchased in Manhattan the following year. The couple notably owned homes in Los Feliz and Santa Barbara, both in California, and Pitt reportedly purchased a pad in Majorca, Spain. The couple's children grew up going to Lycée Français schools (geared for international families) in apparently whatever city the family fancied at the time, as the Observer mentioned.

Nicole Poturalski, who is of Polish heritage, lives in Germany, and has traveled for modeling gigs to New York, Milan, and Paris, according to Daily Mail. The multilingual mom — who goes by Nico Mary in her professional life — is signed by agencies in Germany, Paris, New York, and Los Angeles (via PopSugar), and was photographed vacationing on the Amalfi Coast and in Ibiza, Spain on her Instagram page.

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski fly private

This is one couple who doesn't fly coach. In August 2020, Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski met up at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris and then hopped on a private plane at Paris–Le Bourget Airport together, according to an eyewitness who spoke with Entertainment Tonight. The Fight Club actor came in from the United States, and the model flew from Berlin. "They were very low-key and entered the plane quickly," the observer said. 

The pair were photographed exiting a car together at the airport, with Pitt in khaki-colored pants, a green sweater, and shades, while the cover model looked travel chic in tan pants, a leather jacket, moto boots, a sun hat, and sunglasses. Clearly they travel in style.

Notably, Pitt has always been an avid aviation fan and even has his pilot's license. "Brad loves the technical aspects," his ex Angelina Jolie — who can fly herself — told Vanity Fair in 2010, in regard to his love for flying planes. We wonder if he's flown Poturalski anywhere...

Brad Pitt took Nicole Poturalski to a special place he shares with Angelina Jolie

As Us Weekly reported, it was revealed that Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski jetted down to the South of France so that he could reportedly take the flawless beauty to Château Miraval, the estate and vineyard he and ex Angelina Jolie bought together, in August 2020. It seemed like a pretty innocent getaway until the media deciphered that it was the day of his and Angelina Jolie's wedding anniversary, Aug. 23, 2014. And the location of their wedding ? None other than Château Miraval. Ouch. 

The actor reportedly "[knew] exactly what he [was] doing" and "[didn't] care" if Jolie would be upset, according to Us Weekly. A source told E! News that Pitt was in town for a wine campaign and that his new girl would be staying at the French estate with him for the weekend. OK! magazine reported that the two were also spotted making out at the airport like "loved up teenagers" on their way to Pitt's French property. We wonder what Jolie thought about all that.

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski reportedly dated for months before the public caught on

Sneaky, sneaky! Apparently, Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski had been dating for months before the media caught on to them, and they even went to a Kanye West show back at the Hollywood Bowl in November 2019, according to People. That November was also the month that the two reportedly first met in Berlin while Pitt was in town for his Once Upon A Time in ... Hollywood premiere and sparks flew at her husband's restaurant, as reported by the Daily Mail

As People reported about the November concert, the two clearly met up in Los Angeles, shortly after their first reported meeting in Berlin, and they were seen chatting and laughing in the VIP section of the legendary outdoor concert venue. Perhaps the media outlets were too caught up with Kanye West's antics to catch these two at the time! 

Since Brad is more of a rock 'n' roll guy, we wonder if he was trying to impress his out-of-town date with the Ye tickets...

Brad Pitt reportedly doesn't want to get married again

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski's casual pairing works for three reasons. One is that Brad, as of this writing, is still dealing with his divorce and subsequent custody issues. This has resulted in years of stress for the actor, who has been put through the ringer by ex-wife Angelina Jolie through this seemingly never-ending, bitter divorce, as noted by Entertainment Tonight. Second, Poturalski herself is married to German restaurateur Roland Mary, as the Daily Mail reported. Third, the two stunners live across the pond from one another, with Pitt in Los Angeles and the model calling Berlin home.

Pitt — who has been married twice — reportedly does not want to get married again (can we blame him?), according to Us Weekly . And it is reportedly ideal for him to not have to see his alleged girlfriend every day. Presumably that way, he can focus on himself and deal with any legal drama. Of course, whenever we needs a breather, he can jet off with his new babe, whom he apparently thinks is "beautiful" and "kind." He's just not into another full time relationship... yet. 

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski are both activists

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski are both activists who seem to have compassion for others. Pitt — who went from a $6,000 role in Thelma & Louise to millions per gig from his longtime acting career (via Business Insider) — is one of the most charitable and progressive guys in Hollywood. He has been a part of organizations like Bono's ONE campaign, and Pitt has even stated, "We're supposed to help the most vulnerable," as shared by Entertainment Tonight

Notably, Pitt's Plan B production company has "championed a lot of important stories about the black experience in America," as reported by ET, including Selma, Moonlight, and 12 Years a Slave. "It's a subject matter we haven't focused on enough, and I think that this is a part of our DNA that we haven't paid enough attention to," Pitt once told the news outlet, who applauded his "woke" attitude. George Clooney's BFF also took action after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, helping build homes for those who had lost them.

For her part, Poturalski — mother to son Emil — is very vocal about saving children and has been active in raising child sex trafficking awareness.

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski both grew up loving the outdoors

Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski both love the outdoors. Pitt did an outdoorsy-themed photo shoot with photographer Mark Seligar for Details magazine back in 2014 (which has since folded), in which he shared his love for nature. "I will always be most comfortable in the outdoors. I grew up in the Ozarks — something resembling Mark Twain country," he said, according to ET Canada. "The woods, rivers, bluffs, lakes, and caves have all left an indelible mark on me." He also shared his love for motorcycle riding, saying, "I try to carve out time for a solo ride in every country I travel to." We're sure the father of six doesn't look so bad all leathered up on a bike!

As for Poturalski, the German model actually grew up wanting to be a marine biologist, as Daily Mail reported, so it'd seem she enjoys nature as well. She has also pictured soaking up the sun in various glamorous destinations on her Instagram. No wonder the natural beauty always seems to have a golden tan! Let's just hope she lathers on the SPF — some nasty things can happen to your skin when you skip the sunscreen.

What Nicole Poturalski has said about Brad Pitt's ex-wife Angelina Jolie

Nicole Poturalski had words to say for some of her outspoken Instagram followers, who were questioning whether or not she has hatred for Brad Pitt's ex-wife Angelina Jolie, as reported by Entertainment Tonight. The model posted of herself in an orange sweater on Instagram in September 2020, captioning the photo, "Happy people don't hate," along with three orange heart emojis. When a commenter asked why she and Pitt "hate" Jolie, Poturalski replied, "Not hating anyone." 

These comments surfaced after it was reported that Pitt took his much younger beauty to the Miraval estate in the South of France that he once bought with Jolie. He and Poturalski traveled there in August 2020, on the anniversary of Pitt and Jolie's wedding, as reported by E! News. And since that just so happened to be Pitt and Jolie's wedding venue as well, it obviously sparked some controversy. 

After another follower stuck up for the model in the comments section of the Instagram post, saying, " I think it's only Brad who is dealing with Angie, Nicole has no business there." In response, Poturalski replied, "Amen."
