Don’t expect to see Andra Day on Brad Pitt’s arm anytime soon! The 36-year-old musician and actress spoke to ET’s Kevin Frazier at the 2021 BET Awards on Sunday about the recent rumors that she is dating the 57-year-old Oscar winner.
“Oh my gosh, child, especially because we’ve never met,” she quipped of the rumors. “So I was like, ‘Oh, alright.’ My sister actually hit me up after, she was like, ‘You met Brad Pitt?’ I said, ‘I guess so. I guess we did.'”
As if this weren’t confirmation enough that there’s nothing going on between the pair, Day added, “We’re not dating. We don’t even know each other. It is hilarious. It was thin air. Somebody was bored that day.”
Despite not being romantically involved with Pitt, Day did praise the star, saying, “He’s great, though, super talented, wonderful.”
Sunday was a big night for the performer who took home the Best Actress Award at the BET Awards for her role as Billie Holiday in The United States vs. Billie Holiday.
“It’s our peers and our people, and I think especially with a movie like United States Vs. Billie Holliday, Lee [Daniels] really made the movie for us,” Day shared of the director. “That’s who was on set and that’s who was in our hearts and in our minds when we made it. So for our peers to say, ‘We love this. This is special to us,’ it means everything.”
