Could Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston be rekindling the flame years after their messy breakup? Almost 15 years after their 2005 split, sources revealed that the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood star and the Friends alum "have a real bond.”
"They’ve always cared about each other, and they think fondly of their time together," a source recently told Us Weekly. “For Jen, seeing Brad is like seeing a dear old friend again. They have a real bond.” The insider added that Jennifer, 50, thought Brad, 56, “was her soulmate” before their divorce.
Jennifer and Brad tied the knot in 2000 and parted ways five years later. The Ad Astra star began dating his Mr. & Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie in 2005. Angelina, 44, and Brad went on to have six children — Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11 — and they married in 2014. However, the Maleficent actress and Brad broke up in 2016. The love triangle between Brad, Angelina and Jen that subsequently followed cemented itself as one of Hollywood's biggest scandals.
Jennifer went on to marry screenwriter Justin Theroux in 2015 and they called it quits two years later.
“Jen and Brad are friends and occasionally connect,” another source dished to Us Weekly. “There’s no chance that a potential run-in between Jen and Brad at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards and SAG Awards will be tense or uncomfortable.”
Brad and Jennifer have been seeing a lot of each other these days. On December 14, he attended The Morning Show actress' holiday bash at her Bel Air mansion. The star-studded Christmas party was attended by celebrities that included, Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Glee producer, Brad Falchuk, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon and Jimmy Kimmel.
The father of six stayed at the party for nearly four hours. An insider revealed to People at the time, “Jennifer loves Christmas. As usual, a large group of friends attended.”
"Brad and Jennifer have been in touch a few times since her birthday and are keeping it friendly," the source added. In February 2019, Brad attended Jennifer's 50th birthday party at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles.
