Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston may have officially divorced in October of 2005, but their love and care for one another has seemingly lasted throughout the years.Take for example Sunday night (Jan 19.)
As Aniston stepped onto the stage to accept her award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series at the SAG Awards, Pitt was already backstage, having won his best actor award for his role in the movie Once Upon a Time….In Hollywood. When he noticed his ex at the podium, he stopped, smiled and watched her entire acceptance speech.
“And all of you, your performances inspire me,” Aniston said as Pitt looked on. “For years, I feel like we’ve kind of grown up together and I’m just, I know that you know the few times I’ve been invited back into this room, over the last 20 something years. It’s been so special the times that I’ve been invited.”
And yes, there were plenty of news outlets back there to catch the emotional moment.

Brad, who also took home a SAG award, joked about his single status during his acceptance speech. “I gotta add this to my Tinder profile,” Brad said referring to the popular dating app. “Let’s be honest it was a difficult part—a guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn’t get on with his wife. It was a big stretch.”
And while it may be easy to jump to conclusions as to what just might happen to these two going forward in their romantic lives, perhaps we just all take a breath and enjoy watching a true friendship continue to blossom.
