Eyewitnesses say Brad Pitt and Courteney Cox were so excited to see each other at their manager’s birthday party in LA May 4, they stood in a corner and chatted for five minutes! How does that make Jen feel?
You’d think it would be awkward to hang out with your ex-wife’s best friend at a dinner (without your significant other), but eyewitnesses say Brad Pitt (sans Angelina Jolie) was thrilled to see Courteney Cox at a dinner for their mutual manager’s birthday at Eva Longoria‘s restaurant, Beso, in Hollywood May 4 — and it wasn’t awkward at all!
According to People, Brad, 47, and Courteney, 46, were with a small group celebrating their manager Cynthia Pett-Dante‘s birthday. “They hugged and kissed when they greeted each other,” an eyewitness said. “They talked for a while.”
The former close friends didn’t sit next to each other at the table, but the source said it “didn’t seem awkward at all.”
It’s hard to believe Courteney doesn’t harbor any resentment toward Brad, who famously cheated on her best friend. However, sources reiterated to US Weekly, “There didn’t seem to be any hard feelings. Everyone was very relaxed.”
According to the story, the group of about 12 ate tacos, flatbreads, guacamole and salad, and Brad ordered a hearty steak and red wine. Plus, they had churros for dinner.
Afterward, Courteney was spotted leaving the restaurant with her hands full, carrying a big brown box. Meanwhile, Brad — wearing all black — seemed to be in a great mood.
Later that night, a source tells HollywoodLife.com the A-list actor went to his good friend Chris Cornell‘s concert at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre.
“Brad was walking around all night,” our eyewitness tells us. “He was smiling and of course went backstage for part of the time too.”
Coincidentally, Brad, Courteney and her estranged husband David Arquette went to a Chris Cornell concert together almost exactly two years ago to the day.
