Brad Pitt and Arrested Development actress Alia Shawkat have been spotted together at least three times in the last few months, and on Sunday they were seen hanging with one another yet again.

The pair were spotted taking in Brad’s friend Kanye West’s one-night-only Nebuchadnezzar opera at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday afternoon, in the same VIP box.

Pitt, 55, sat one row in front of Shawkat, 30, who looked on with a bit of a smirk while the Ad Astra star talked at length with a pretty woman seated in the booth adjacent to them.

While there have been rumors swirling about a romance between Brad and Alia, who have been spotted together numerous times taking in theater and at art openings since mid-September, insiders have insisted that the pair are ‘just friends,’ as reported by People.  

The pair kept things low key in the audience on Sunday, with Alia sitting a row behind him. 

At one point, Alia watched on as Brad chatted to a pretty woman seated next to them at the Los Angeles, California performance venue.  

The Fight Club actor, who was seen wearing an olive green satin jacket over a white T-shirt along with a brown fedora, arrived and sat in a VIP box for the show, with Alia as well as another famous buddy in their entourage, Nick Cave. 

Alia was dressed in a cap and shiny blue coat, with a white floral dress underneath, and black cowboy boots.

In addition to Alia starring as Maeby Funke on Arrested Development on and off since 2003, the actress has starred in Drew Barrymore’s 2009 directorial debut Whip It, The Final Girls, and Green Room. She also appeared on Broad City, and plays Dory Sief on Search Party.

In 2017, Shawkat came out to Out magazine as bisexual.

‘I was a tomboy growing up, and I remember my mom asking me when I was 10, “Are you attracted to boys or girls?”‘ Shawkat said. ‘I said I don’t know. Now I consider myself bisexual, and I think balancing my male and female energies has been a big part of me growing as an actor.’ 

The actress has been linked romantically to Michael Cera, and singer and producer Jack Antonoff.

‘Maeby’ they’re just friends: Shawkat, seen here earlier in the day on Sunday, is famous for her role of Maeby Funke on Arrested Development; while she’s been seen repeatedly with Pitt of late, an insider maintains their relationship is just friendly

Sharing a laugh: Brad chatted away to the woman sat next to him while waiting for the opera to start 

On Sunday, yet another famous face was nearby to Brad and Alia: Val Kilmer, wearing a knit teal cat ears hat on his head, who came over and embraced the Twelve Monkeys actor.

The pair had ample time to socialize with each other and those around them, as West reportedly began the show almost THREE HOURS late. 

Pitt recently reached a custody agreement with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, to whom he was married from 2014 to 2016, pertaining to their six children who range in age from 11 to 18.

While their marriage was relatively short-lived, Pitt and Jolie were together for a lot longer, ever since teaming up on the 2005 action flick Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

At the time, Pitt was still married to his first wife Jennifer Aniston. 

Brad has been linked to many women since splitting from Angelina, including Jennifer again and even Charlize Theron (that rumor has since been debunked as well by Charlize herself). 

Last year the cover boy was also tied to Dr. Neri Oxman, a celebrated Israeli MIT professor.  

And earlier this year, he was linked to American-Sikh spiritual guru Sat Hari Khalsa.

As for Kanye’s opera performance, the outspoken rapper did not physically appear on stage until the very end of the performance, at curtain call.

He did however narrate the action of the show from offstage.  

In addition to Pitt, Shawkat, Cave and Kilmer, at least two other stars in attendance at the show were Chance the Rapper and Kanye’s supermodel sister-in-law, Kendall Jenner.
