But, as Andra headed into last night’s awards, she spoke to Entertainment Tonight, cleaning up the rumor once and for all.
“Oh my gosh, child, especially because we’ve never met,” she said after being questioned about the situation. She continued, “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.'”
The actress made sure to be clear about her answers, saying, “We’re not dating. We don’t even know each other. It is hilarious. It was thin air.

Billie Holliday, Lee [Daniels] really made the movie for us,” she said. Adding, “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.”
