Oh, what a night!
Jennifer Aniston had an evening she’ll remember for a long time at the 2020 SAG Awards on Sunday night! And not only was the whole Brad Pitt reunion a thing (!!!), the Friends icon was also extremely happy to be taking home an award for her role in The Morning Show. Such a great day for Jen!
As you might expect, then, sources are reporting on the 50-year-old star’s varying emotions after such a memorable night among fellow stars and talented actors. One source opened up to Us Weekly about her emotional wave throughout the show, reporting (below):
“She was so happy, thrilled and surprised while explaining how she felt excited and overwhelmed. She was also making jokes with reporters during the interview.”
Another insider added more, speaking to In Touch about Jen’s unusual openness and glee:
“Reporters were commenting that this was the happiest they’ve ever seen her, the best mood they ever witnessed from the typically press-shy, more closed off Jen.”
And it makes sense, after all; the Dumplin’ star appeared to truly be shocked when she was awarded the prize for Best Female Actor in a Drama. Quickly, she became choked up during her acceptance speech, during which she referenced her peers in the audience and her pride for the industry.
Speaking to the media then in the aftermath of the awards show, the Office Space star was equally nostalgic about her time growing up in the entertainment industry, and what it all means to come full circle now.
She even referenced her 56-year-old ex-husband Pitt in her comments, saying:
“We’ve all grown up together, we really have. And it just feels like a really fun night to celebrate and cheer each other on and keep working. There are not dark hours, but, you know, you don’t really have that much of a life, so it’s nice to come out and put a pretty dress on and sort of celebrate your friends and their work, and inspire each other to keep going — and like [Brad] said, it’s back to work tomorrow.”
You can watch Jen open up more about Brad — and specifically, his backstage viewing of her SAG Awards acceptance speech — in the video (below):
Awww! So cute!
What do U think, Perezcious readers?! The spark is undeniable here, and Sunday evening was a milestone night of memories for the former couple. But will it lead to anything??
