People reported that Pitt, 54, is an architecture enthusiast. The friendship makes sense then, as Oxman, 42, founded a team at MIT that researches architecture and art that combines design, materials and biology.

Pitt is reportedly still finalizing his divorce from Angelina Jolie. Oxman was reportedly married to Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov in 2011, but the two have since split. According to Page Six, Oxman has been dating billionaire investor Bill Ackman, 51. Ackman's representative declined to comment to the tabloid.

Page Six said Oxman could not be reached for comment. A representative for Pitt declined to comment.
