Brad Pitt Is Doing This 1 Totally Relatable Thing to Avoid Romance Rumors

Brad Pitt is undergoing a major career resurgence, after his appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s hit film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Still, the world is much more interested in Pitt’s personal life than with his film work.

Following a headline-making divorce from his longtime flame Angelina Jolie, Pitt is back on the market and might be ready to mingle. As one of the world’s leading heartthrobs, Pitt could likely have his pick of attractive industry players.

But fans are intent on seeing him reconnect with one specific woman — his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. Still, Pitt recently revealed that he tries to avoid the chatter as much as possible, using a very basic technique that could surprise many fans.

In the early 2000s, Pitt and Aniston were happily married, and considered to be Hollywood’s “Golden Couple.” They appeared at red carpet events all over the world, and by all appearances, couldn’t be happier.

However, in 2005, Pitt and Aniston announced their separation, following rumors of Pitt’s affair with Angelina Jolie. Shortly after Pitt and Aniston officially split, Pitt and Jolie went public with their relationship.

The two started a family, adopting children from Ethiopia and Cambodia and even welcoming three biological children together. In April 2012, after close to seven years together, Pitt proposed to Jolie. They tied the knot in August 2014, in a low-key ceremony that included all six of their children.

Still, wedded bliss didn’t last long and in September 2016, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt. It was widely reported that Pitt’s drinking had led to irreparable problems within their marriage.

The world is obsessed with Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston

Pitt and Jolie’s divorce dragged out over a period of several years and included a bitter custody battle. These days, Pitt seems to be doing better than ever and is reconnecting with several people from his past — including his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston.

The two are reportedly still friends, in spite of the history between them. Pitt has even shown up to several of Aniston’s recent events, including her fiftieth birthday party. 

Needless to say, fans are loving the fact that Pitt and Aniston have been spotted together and seem to be friendly. Many have speculated that the two are dating, although there remains little evidence to actually support that and Pitt himself has said that any dating rumors are completely untrue.

Still, fans hold onto hope that Pitt and Aniston could one day reconnect in a romantic sense, and step out once again as Hollywood’s “Golden Couple.”

Brad Pitt tries to avoid the gossip

As for Pitt, he is keeping his head low and focusing on his work, rather than romance.

In a recent interview, Pitt admitted that he likes to remain “blissfully naïve” when it comes to internet reports about his personal life and whether or not he and Aniston will start dating. He stated that he hasn’t read the headlines recently, preferring to stay well away from the internet frenzy focusing on his reunion with Aniston. 

It seems likely that Pitt is at least partially aware of how beloved he and Aniston were as a couple and how much many people would love to see them back together. He is most likely deflecting a bit in order to avoid discussing what could still be a sensitive topic.

For fans, the only real solution is to wait and see what happens: it is certainly possible that the one-time couple could decide to pursue a romantic relationship in the near future.
