The ongoing divorce from Angelina Jolie might have taken its toll on Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt, but if a recent report is to be believed, the actor is not yet ready to give up on love. Rumour has it that the 52-year-old star is looking for love again but does not want to date anyone who is like his former wife Jolie.

"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 HollywoodLife.

"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 positive people," the source said.

"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 realizes all the other stuff is a waste of time."

Pitt and Jolie called it quits on their relationship in September after the Maleficent actress filed for legal separation following an alleged row between the actor and his 15-year-old son Maddox.

The Fight Club actor was cleared of any child abuse concerns after an investigation by the FBI and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.

According to reports, the father-of-six had a heartbreaking Thanksgiving weekend after Jolie did not invite him to spend time with his children.

Meanwhile, gossip reports ended up linking him with one actress or another. Previously there were rumours surrounding him and actress Margot Robbie – which were later debunked – and later reports claimed that his mystery woman is none other than actress Kate Hudson.

But, as it turns out, all the romance rumours are based mostly on speculation. Nonetheless, even as the actor could be looking for someone to bring light into his life, he does not seem to be moving on with either Hudson or Robbie following his much-publicised split.
