And we couldn’t have called it.
The former couple broke up in 2005 after five years of marriage and have not been seen together since, with Brad going on to marry Angelina Jolie and Jen going on to marry Justin Theroux.
Following the split of both couples and Brad’s surprise appearance at Jen’s 50th birthday party, there were rumours of a possible reunion, but it has emerged that in actual fact, Jen and Brad are just good pals, reconnecting three years ago after Brad reportedly apologised.
It’s hardly surprising therefore that fans have been speculating around Jennifer Aniston’s relationship with Angelina Jolie, with the two women both dominating Hollywood, attending the same award ceremonies and events.
Unsurprisingly, the two don’t seem to be pals, but they have spoken before.
In fact, it emerged this week that the last time they spoke was before Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s affair emerged, back in 2004 while Jen was filming her last season of Friends.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, Jen revealed the one and only time she spoke to Angelina Jolie, bumping into each other in a car park where Friends was filmed, just days before Angelina and Brad started filming Mr and Mrs Smith - the film that started Brangelina.
‘I pulled over and introduced myself,’ Jennifer explained. ‘I said, “Brad is so excited about working with you. I hope you guys have a really good time”.’
Reflecting, Jennifer reportedly recalled that after Brad had met Angelina, ‘he was gone’.
This is heartbreaking.
