People Think Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s Recent Run In Means They’re Reconciling and Fans Are Not Here For It

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have been divorced for over 15 years but that hasn’t stopped people’s hopes for the former couple to take another trip down the aisle. They were once known as America’s favorite couple until infidelity tore their union apart.

Many were excited when photos surfaced of the two hugging and smiling at one another at a recent award show and prayed that the two would reconcile – but not all are supportive of the possibility.

When Entertainment Tonight caught up with Aniston and asked her about the press’s fascination with her and her famous actor ex, she responded, “It’s hysterical, but what else are they going to talk about?”

The two were photographed embracing one another after they both took home awards. It wasn’t the first time the exes were spotted together. Pitt attended Aniston’s 50th birthday bash and they’ve also run into each other at industry events. The pair share mutual friends so the odds of them being in the same place at the same time are highly likely.

Pitt and Aniston famously split after four years of marriage when Pitt began an affair with his on-screen love interest of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Angelina Jolie. They later married, had children and divorced in 2016. Aniston found love again in fellow actor Justin Theroux. They married in 2015 and divorced in 2017. With both of them divorced, it sparked ideas that they’d find their way back to one another.

Fans are against any possibility of a Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reunion

While many fans of the former couple were thrilled at Pitt and Aniston’s interaction and the thought that they’d date again, others were not so happy.
