Believers in the OTP status of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston got a huge boost on Sunday when the former Hollywood power couple had a sweet (and not just a little bit sexy) reunion at the SAG Awards.
The exes didn’t just seem to get along during their backstage brush, they really looked like they were seriously vibing. Not to mention the way she looked at him during the show…
Reporters noted the evening was “the happiest they’ve ever seen” Jen, giving shippers even more fuel for the torches they’ve been carrying for the past decade and a half.
However, a source later rained on their parade, saying the Friends star was “happy to have Brad back in her life as a friend, but that’s it.”
Hey, we’ll take it, right? After all they haven’t always gotten along since their famous 2005 split, in which he left and began dating Mr. And Mrs. Smith leading lady Angelina Jolie. For instance in a 2011 People interview he threw a little shade, saying:
“It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”
He later apologized for implying Jennifer — and their relationship — was dull. But it was the kind of touchy awkwardness a lot of breakups cause between two people.
So… how did they fix it? New sources are spilling on how the relationship got back on solid ground. One insider told ET it was all down to Brad taking “ownership for his mistakes” and finally apologizing:
“Brad is completely sober now and is in such a different place than he was when they were together. Brad is truly an introspective guy who has worked hard on himself. He has apologized to her for many things he felt were his issues in their relationship. He truly takes ownership for his mistakes and that has changed their relationship with each other today. They both have moved on.”
Another source paints a picture of their new status as friendly exes, saying:
“Right now they just love and adore each other and have been much closer friends since their divorces. They have a very mature relationship that has evolved over time because they both have experienced marriages that didn’t work out.”
So their breakups — with other people — brought them closer together. Inneresting. The source agrees it’s a lot of Brad evolving:
“Brad has grown so much in his life since he and Jen broke up.”
Sounds like he’s finally grown up enough for her. Too bad they aren’t in a place where they’re able to start over as lovers… Or are they??
