Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are said to have cleared the air at Aniston's 50th birthday party.
Most of us don't like to dwell on the past and the 57-year-old legendary actor Brad Pitt is no exception. However, he wishes he'd handled things with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston a bit better. This was revealed by a source who spoke exclusively to Us Weekly. “He asked for Jen’s forgiveness a long time ago and she gave it.” Jennifer Aniston and Brad went their separate ways after a five-year wedding in 2005. After a long gap, they reunited for Aniston's 50th birthday bash at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood in 2019, February 9, that also included many A-list guests including George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, and more.
“Brad gave Jen a card and a hug,” added the insider, noting that many people at the party were 'surprised' to see him there. Not only did he show up for her party, but also sent her a birthday present—as did most of her other celebrity friends who were at the party, reports PEOPLE. “Most birthday party guests sent gifts to Jen’s house,” revealed a source. “Brad did too. Her friends are all very generous and creative, and she seemed very excited by all the gifts.” The source also added that most of Jennifer Aniston's friends were glad that he showed up to the bash. “He was invited, so why shouldn’t he go?” another source says of Aniston’s ex.
“He’s single and has no one to answer to. He and Jen spent many important and happy years together. He obviously decided to join her celebration because he wanted to.” Yeah, it's not like they can't stand being in the same room as each other, so it's all well. Jennifer Aniston is simply gorgeous, there's no doubt about it, but back in the day, when she was married to Pitt, she wanted to start a family with him, but that's when he fell in love with Angelina Jolie, leaving Aniston heartbroken, as we reported earlier. Even though they had a rather rocky relationship, the two always got along amicably. The first source says, “Her friends were happy to see Brad at the party. Whatever caused their divorce is long in the past.”
An insider said, “Brad and Jen have a very civil relationship.“ Another source told PEOPLE that 'basically, every single person who Jen loves were at the bash. That included Brad'. “The party was a celebration of Jen’s life. Brad, for so long, was a very important part of Jen’s life. She debated back and forth with friends if she should invite him,” adds the insider. “She was very happy that he showed up. Many of his close friends were at the party too.” But, even though Aniston did invite her ex to the party, she 'didn’t really pay any special attention to Brad' the source explains. “They hugged and chatted for a bit, but Jen was busy making sure all of her other guests had an amazing time,” the source shares.
Photos from the night showed Brad Pitt arriving with his long hair slicked back underneath a cap, looking as stunning as ever, entering the hotel. Apparently, when the news of Aniston's split with ex-husband Justin Theroux was released, a source revealed Jen and Brad had “been over each other for longer than they were ever together.” While Aniston and Pitt had remained friendly over the years, the source said the two weren’t especially close. “They aren’t in regular contact, beyond an occasional text back and forth to wish each other the best when there’s been a new project or big event,” the insider said at the time.
