MIT Professor Neri Oxman, Once Linked to Brad Pitt, Denies Dating Rumors

Neri Oxman is an accomplished professor of media arts and sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab, but her name was recently splashed across headlines this year for being romantically linked to actor Brad Pitt.

The 54-year-old actor reportedly met the 42-year-old professor at the Media Lab, but, in a New York Times profile, she’s “emphatically” denying any dating rumors. She added that she’s currently dating hedge fund manager William A. Ackman.

She did add that she would love to collaborate with Brad at some point, and when asked about the actor, she described him “as the last of the Mohicans in post-Netflix Hollywood. He brings together the timely and the timeless,” she said, “which is what cinema is all about.”

    Interaction Design: Neri Oxman

    Neri Oxman is an architect, designer, inventor, and professor at MIT, where she is the founding director of The Mediated Matter Group. The group combines commissioned work with scientific research exploring ways in which digital design and production techniques can enhance the relationship between built and natural environments, operating at the intersection of computational design, robotic fabrication, materials engineering and synthetic biology. Oxman coined the term “Material Ecology” to describe the study, design, and digital fabrication of buildings, products, and systems that integrate environmentally aware, computational, form-generating processes and digital production.

    It’s good to see accomplished women profiled in the national media for their accomplishments rather than their links to males – imagined or real links. It would have been nice to include the reason for the NYTimes profile rather than the gossip reason. I get this is a celeb gossip forum but still.

    You mean it isn’t because Brad’s PR team deliberately manipulated the NYT to publish something about Dr Neri Oxman and them MADE her say something nice about Brad? Just when the whole custody and divorce may be coming to a head?
