"I've gotten press, but not like that", she added. Actress Alia denied reports of dating actor Brad, saying that "we are just friends".
Alia Shawkat is speaking out for the first time about the rumors that she is dating Brad Pitt.
Rumors about her and Pitt even prompted some of the friends of the "Arrested Development" star to ask about their relationship.
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 handsome green gown at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008.
"We're not dating", she told Vulture in an interview published Friday. I just felt overwhelmed. Some of their casual outings together included comedian Mike Birbiglia's one-man show, a Thundercat concert together, and they also turned up at Kanye West's Nebuchadnezzar opera.
"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, '" Shawkat said. Brad Pitt cheered. "Enjoy, congrats again, and think big!" She said that initially her friends were also curious to know about their relationship. But, that didn't keep fans from speculating that a romance was in the works.
Shawkat explained that she met the Oscar victor through director Spike Jonze. "Brad loves the art world", the insider told PEOPLE. The source also called what the pair had as "very organic and easy".
