Brad Pitt is not ready to date after splitting with Angelina Jolie. The actor is still getting used to his single life after the 41-year-old actress filed for divorce from him in September 2016.

The 53-year-old actor was recently linked to Ruth Negga, his co-star in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Ad Astra. A source told Hollywood Life: "Brad fears falling in love again after suffering from a broken heart with Angelina."

"Brad has great chemistry with his co-star, Ruth, but he is cautiously keeping things between them light and casual. Brad is keeping it light and friendly with Ruth, as he has with any other women he meets these days," the insider added. "He may have a crush on the beautiful co-star, but he will not be falling in love again anytime soon."

"[Brad and Ruth's] relationship is strictly professional and any chemistry between them is in the on-screen context," another source revealed.

Meanwhile, Jolie had admitted she does not like being single. During an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, the Academy Award winning actress said: "Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together. But really I am just trying to get through my days. I don't enjoy being single. It's not something I wanted. There's nothing nice about it. It's just hard."
