Fans around the world were devastated when Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston announced their split in 2005. But in the years since their breakup, there have been a number of glimmers of hope that these two are on better than good terms! Brad and Jen have actually reunited and spent more time together since Brad’s 2016 divorce from ex-wife Angelina Jolie and Jen’s split from Justin Theroux.
The former couple’s longtime admirers have watched with great interest to see if these reunions were just friendly or something more romantic. Over the course of the last year alone, the two have been spotted backstage at awards shows, and even getting together for table reads of famous Hollywood films. Take a look below at some of Brad and Jen’s biggest reunions so far!
Jen’s 50th Birthday PartyOne of their more surprising get-togethers came when Brad attended Jen’s 50th birthday party at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles! Brad was seen, above, waiting outside the venue to head in. Once inside, the former couple shared a really sweet moment.
“They talked for just a little bit at her party,” a source shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife. “It was very cordial, very nice. Everyone is in a good place with each other, but it wasn’t like they were hanging out all night or anything like that. It was seen as a really nice gesture by her for him being there and something that she really appreciated. The basis of their night together was that they are in a completely good place and had a very nice conversation, exchanging pleasantries with each other. It was nice that they could both be so mature and natural around each other.”
Jen’s Holiday PartyBack in December 2019, the exes also reunited at Jen’s holiday party. The moment was incredibly meaningful for both, especially Brad! A source close to the stars shared EXCLUSIVELY with HL how much the moment meant to the A-list actor.
“Spending time with Jen in a friendly atmosphere was therapeutic for Brad, who never wanted things with her to end on a sour note,” the source said. “It makes him happy, and it shows him that people really can figure out their differences and move forward. He finds it promising that he’s been able to rectify past faults and be in a great place again with Jen.”
The Screen Actors Guild AwardsIt was the picture seen around the world. At the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards, Jen was greeted backstage by her former husband. The two beamed at one another following their wins and Brad was even seen holding on to Jen’s hand as she walked away to do press! Coincidentally, a source close to the Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood star shared that he orchestrated their run-in.
“He finally got her attention, they briefly hugged and exchanged pleasantries,” a source shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife. “The picture that shows his hand on her when he gently pulled her back to say congratulations. The whole moment that lasted about a half a minute or a minute was spearheaded all by Brad, he was the person who wanted it to happen. They both left with a smile. It was a real nice moment.”

There was no denying how happy Brad and Jen looked when they logged on for the Fast Times At Ridgemont High virtual table read!
