January 2020 feels like a lifetime ago. Before Coronavirus restrictions turned much of the world dark, no one could stop talking about Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt’s reunion at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The sweet photo of the former flames running into each other made the rounds. The captured moment ignited reconciliation rumors. The rumors quieted down after a couple of months, but Aniston may have just reignited the discussion with an Instagram photo of her dog.  

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt ended their marriage in 2005

Aniston and Pitt’s romance captivated the masses in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but not nearly as much as their 2005 divorce. In the months after they announced their separation, headlines speculated about the reason for their split. More than 15 years later, most people agree that Pitt’s interest in Angelina Jolie ended the union.

Pitt moved on quickly, dating and then marrying Jolie. Aniston worked through a series of relationships with high profile men before settling down with Justin Theroux. She dated both Vince Vaughn and John Mayer in the years after her split from Pitt. Each breakup was met with new headlines, exclaiming that Aniston was still pining for Pitt.

Fans have insisted the pair are going to end up together ever since their respective second divorces

Talk of Aniston and Pitt died down once both had married other people. Pitt and Jolie made things official in 2014. Aniston said “I Do” to Theroux in 2015 after around four years of dating. That seemed to be the end of that, but those marriages weren’t built to last, either.

Jolie shocked the world in September 2016 when she filed for divorce after an argument on a flight back to California. In February 2018, Aniston and Theroux released a joint statement announcing the end of their marriage. Theroux almost immediately returned to New York, while Aniston remained in California. Before the ink had dried on Aniston’s official statement, fans speculated that she and Pitt would get back together.
