Since divorcing her ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, in 1999, Fran Drescher has remained a single woman. But despite not getting back into another relationship, Drescher has found herself crushing on one famous actor, and it’s someone who’s known for his good looks and charm.
Fran Drescher dreams about her celebrity crush Brad Pitt
While appearing on a recent episode of The Domenick Nati Show, Drescher opened up about her dating life, sharing that she currently isn’t seeing anyone.
“I’m kind of dating myself, and we’re in a great relationship,” The Nanny star revealed.
When asked if she’s dated any fellow celebrities in the past, Drescher shared that famous men have never really appealed to her.
“I don’t think I’ve dated celebrities,” she told Nati. “I actually find male actors to maybe be, I don’t know, difficult or insecure. I think I maybe steer clear of that.”
However, there’s one well-known actor Drescher wouldn’t mind spending quality time with, and it’s none other than Hollywood icon Brad Pitt.
“I would make the exception with Brad Pitt,” Drescher quipped.
Fran Drescher has met Brad Pitt in person
When asked if she’s ever met him, the actor shared that she had crossed paths with Pitt twice. However, she revealed that the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star often makes appearances in her dreams.
“Once we were alone in an elevator and I mean really, my heart was pounding. I’m embarrassed to say that he is the only celebrity that enters my dreams,” Drescher explained. “Not really sexual dreams, but just that I felt excited that we were becoming friends.”
As for how her conversation with Pitt went inside the elevator, Drescher admitted that it was short-lived.
“It was brief. I don’t really remember, except I was really thrilled by it,” she said, later adding, “In the elevator, I should have pressed stop. Can you imagine if we got stuck? That would have been amazing.”
Fran Drescher has a lot of love for Brad Pitt’s ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, too
Though she is a big fan of Pitt, he’s not the only actor Drescher has had high praise for.
In addition to the Moneyball star, Drescher also has a lot of love for his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, with who she had an instant connection when they first met.
“We had met, I think, once before at a red carpet and he was, at that point, married to Angelina [Jolie],” The Beautician and the Beast actor recalled. “I talked to her. It was after her mom passed of cancer and I talked to her and [Brad] thanked me and said, ‘Whatever you said to her seemed to make her feel better, so thank you.’”
Being a uterine cancer survivor herself, Drescher felt an immediate desire to be a shoulder for Jolie to lean on. And her support for the mother of six didn’t stop there.
In 2013, Drescher voiced high praise for Jolie after the Maleficent star revealed in a New York Times op-ed that she had a double mastectomy to prevent breast cancer.
“I think she’s a warrior goddess. I think she is great,” Drescher gushed to E! News. “I think she made a decision that seemed right for her, and there is no right or wrong, there’s just the decision you make and whatever decision you make, you never look back.”
