Brad and Jen’s long overdue reunion at the 2020 SAG Awards had the internet in a literal swoon. The former golden couple’s lengthy embrace, followed by Brad wistfully clasping Jen’s wrist as she breaks away, was quick to break the internet and have us all in hysterics. Pitt also apparently “dropped everything” to watch ex-wife Aniston’s acceptance speech on the small screen backstage, beaming and mouthing the words ‘Oh wow!” as he cheered her on.
Brad was awarded Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his portrayal of Cliff Booth in Tarantino’s latest film, whilst Jen won Best Actress in a Drama Series for The Morning Show, her first SAG since starring in Friends.
The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star has finally addressed the whole thing, sharing with Entertainment Tonight “ I’m blissfully naive, and I’m gonna stay that way.” On the evening of the encounter, Aniston weighed in with “It’s hysterical but what else are they going to talk about?”. We’re not sure if we’re taking her dismissive word for it! The Daily Mirror reports that, according to friend’s of the duo, Jen and Brad are “back in love after a string of secret dates.” An exclusive source also revealed ‘a secret tryst’ had occurred over Christmas at Aniston’s Bel Air home. On another occasion, Brad was also the last to leave Jen’s holiday party.
There is hope for a re-ignition in Hollywood’s once beloved power couple’s relationship, as a close source to the pair revealed “A reason Brad and Jen get along so well now is that they’ve agreed to bury the past and not analyse what went wrong. They’re both looking forward, not back.” We truly hope a rekindling of romance is in the works, the wrist-clutch was quite telling! The source went on to reveal that “Brad has taken responsibility. He’s tried to make amends. He didn’t realise the magnitude of the hurt he caused Jen at the time. He was so swept up in Angelina Jolie, he couldn’t see outside that tunnel….They’ve always cared about each other, and they think fondly of their time together. For Jen, seeing Brad is like seeing a dear old friend again. They have a real bond.”
Some throwbacks for old times sake!
