Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston used to be one of the hottest couples in Hollywood. They first got together in the late 1990s when both of them were attracting a lot of media attention, which led Pitt and Aniston to be an extremely popular couple among fans.
As many people know, however, Pitt and Aniston eventually parted ways in 2005. Their breakup was filled with reports about them having bad blood with each other, and it seemed as if Pitt and Aniston would never be on good terms again.
Yet, Hollywood insiders are now revealing that things are getting better for the pair since Pitt has apologized to Aniston for his wrongdoings during their marriage.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were married for about five years
Pitt and Aniston reportedly met in 1998 after they were introduced to each other by their agents. They soon began dating, though it wasn’t obvious to fans at first since they often tried to keep their relationship under wrap.
In September 1999, however, it was clear that Pitt and Aniston were a couple. The two of them got married in 2000 in a private wedding.
Yet, by 2005, their marriage had gone downhill.
Why Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston got divorced
A lot of onlookers speculated that Pitt and Aniston’s relationship came to an end because Pitt fell in love with Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Jolie did admit that, while working on the film, there was a “strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened” between her and Pitt.
However, she often maintained that Pitt did not cheat on Aniston with her.
Aniston also debunked the cheating rumor by sharing in an interview shortly after her divorce that she and Pitt simply grew apart. She said: “It’s just complicated, relationships are complicated… There are all these levels of growth – and when you stop growing together, that’s when the problems happen.”
Additionally, she revealed to Elle in another interview that their divorce “was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy.”
Brad Pitt has apologized to Jennifer Aniston for his mistakes
Even though it looked like Pitt and Aniston had a mutual breakup, they did not seem to be on good terms in the years following it.
Things started to change a few years ago. In 2016, Aniston’s mother passed away and Pitt reached out to her. A source told Us Weekly that Aniston was “touched that he knew what a difficult time it was.”
Another insider also recently shared with Entertainment Tonight that Pitt has apologized to Aniston for his mistakes during their breakup, which has allowed them to move on with their lives.
“Brad is completely sober now and is in such a different place than he was when they were together,” the source said. “He has apologized to her for many things he felt were his issues in their relationship. He truly takes ownership for his mistakes and that has changed their relationship with each other today. They both have moved on.”
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston seem to be on good terms now
Pitt and Aniston have come a long way since their high-profile divorce in 2005. The pair are reportedly good friends these days.
Pitt has been attending a few events thrown by Aniston, including her 50th birthday party in 2019. Allegedly, some friends are even seeing their relationship as “flirtatious,” according to a source.
“They dig each other’s sense of humor and have an infectious energy when they’re together, but they insist things are purely platonic and nothing more than that,” the insider added.
