Brad Pitt Is Set to Reunite With Jennifer Aniston As He Denies All Dating Rumors
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are set to reunite on at least two separate events this January. Both actors have been nominated for SAG Awards and Golden Globes, which gives them plenty of time to catch up. It has also reignited rumors that the two are thinking about getting back together, something Pitt has denied following the end of his marriage to Angelina Jolie. Here’s a quick look at what Pitt has to say about those pesky dating rumors.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston to reunite
Pitt was nominated for both a Golden Globe and SAG award for his work in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, while Aniston got nods for The Morning Show.
Aniston and Pitt, of course, were married for several years until their divorce in 2005. Although the two have a rocky history, they have been good friends for several years now. In fact, Pitt attended Aniston’s birthday party this past year, which only fueled their reunion rumors even more.
As far as the upcoming awards are concerned, an inside source told Page Six that Brad Pitt and Aniston do not expect any issues to arise. They also apparently think the dating rumors are a bit silly and are happy with their friendship.
“Brad and Jen are still friends. They speak once in a while, and even though there are these fools who say they’re getting back together, of course they’re not. But they will always be fond of each other,” the insider shared.
That said, fans would love to see Pitt and Aniston get back together and the timing is perfect for them to rekindle things. Pitt has not started dating anyone following his split from Jolie, while Aniston is still single after the end of her marriage to Justin Theroux.
Pitt dishes on the romance rumors
In light of all the rumors surrounding Pitt’s love life, the Ad Astra star recently broke his silence on the issue. In a new interview, Brad Pitt revealed that none of the reports about his dating life have been accurate, including the recent rumors about him and Alia Shawkat.
“I don’t know how many women they’ve said I’ve been dating the last two or three years, and none of it’s true,” he stated.
Pitt and Shawkat have attended several events together over the past few months. The multiple sightings led to rumors that they are sparking up a romance, though it sounds like Pitt is still a single man.
While fans continue to speculate about Pitt’s love life, he is still ironing out the final details in his divorce settlement. Pitt and Jolie have been unable to finalize their divorce because of issues related to custody.
They also have a lot of financial things to work out in the divorce, so there is no telling when they will finally get it done. In the meantime, they were both recently granted single status by a judge so they are free to date and remarry if they want.
What does Brad Pitt think about the press?
In a recent interview with the New York Times, Pitt opened up about his relationship with the press and how he deals with constantly being in the spotlight.
The actor, who remains one of the biggest names in Hollywood, revealed that he has not read a story in the press since 2004. This includes reviews of his work and, of course, all of the gossip that is written about him on a constant basis.
”I stopped reading all press about 2004. Not just reviews. I mean any magazine in the doctor’s office. Because some of it would bounce around like a rat in the skull,” he shared.
Brad Pitt added that he is the type of person who sometimes lets stories affect the way he works, which is one reason why he does not pay attention to the media.
He also noted that he does not go to great lengths to avoid the headlines about his life, but he does make an effort to not read the stories. Considering everything that is written about him, that is probably easier said than done.
Pitt dishes on his latest roles
Romance aside, Pitt also discussed his latest two movies, Ad Astra and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
The actor revealed that his roles in both films were inspired by things in his personal life. For the character of Clint Booth, Pitt revealed that he modeled the stuntman after his own dad. And for Ad Astra, he looked at his own shortcomings as a father and put that emotion into the role.
Brad Pitt shares six children with Jolie – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox – and his relationship with his older kids has been strained as of late.
