They were one of Hollywood’s hottest couples, America’s favorites. Though their relationship fell apart after seven years, fans still hope that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt will get back together. Therefore, whenever they appear together, the Internet is full of rumors. Recently, hopes for a happy ending of the love story of these two have come back to life.
When Brad Pitt was working on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in 2004, his wife at the time – Jennifer Aniston – spoke in interviews about love and plans to enlarge the family. However, these were never to come true, because Brad met Angelina Jolie during the filming of the film. Rumor has it that they were already connected by a hot romance.
And when Brad and Jen officially announced their breakup in 2005, fans refused to believe it. To this day, many of them cannot come to terms with this decision and keep their fingers crossed for the acting couple. Recent reports suggest that, despite the comments of major stakeholders, Jen and Brad again share something more than just a friendship. Could the saying that old love never rusts up true?
Dedicated by agents
Hollywood couples’ relationships often start on a movie set. In the case of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, it was different – they did not sparkle during their joint production. They owe their relationship to agents who decided to play matchmakers.
Brad and Jen first met in 1994. But something more brought them together only four years later. Pitt was fresh out of Gwyneth Paltrow at the time, Aniston was a star in the series “Friends”. “It was weird … It was a really easy evening.” It was really great fun – this is how Jennifer’s first date was recalled years later on Diane Sawyer’s Primetime.
For several months, the lovers did not want to share their happiness with the world. It wasn’t until September 12, 1999, at the Emmy Awards, that Aniston first appeared in public with Pitt. Luck was beating from those in love then. The whole America quickly started cheering for the pair.
The fans were overjoyed when the actors announced the engagement seven months later. They did it during the Sting concert. At one point, they appeared on stage to perform the song “Fill Her Up” with the vocalist. Just as the lyrics of the song are uttered: “We’re going to Vegas to get married. So fill up, son, don’t stare. Yes, it’s the real diamond she’s wearing. ”Jen presented her engagement ring to a stunned audience. Apparently, Brad paid as much as half a million dollars for it.
Marriage is a good thing
After Jen and Brad, everyone expected a spectacular wedding. The couple did not disappoint the fans. She appeared in a white satin gown designed by Lawrence Steele. He wore a black tuxedo designed by Hedy Slimane. The ceremony in Malibu was graced with decorations of over 50,000 roses, lotus flowers and wisteria, and a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. 200 guests, including Edward Norton, Salma Hayek, Cameron Diaz or the actress’s colleagues from the set of “Friends”, the time was pleasant by the gospel choir. The icing on the cake was a 13-minute fireworks show arranged in the shape of a heart. The cost of the celebration was over a million dollars.
At first, Aniston’s friends approached her with caution. The actress laughingly recalled that they thought he was a “conceited asshole”. But seeing her happiness, they became convinced of him. Because Jen seemed to be floating above the ground after the wedding. She said Brad was the love of her life and she couldn’t imagine marrying anyone else.
It even looked as if marriage was serving her career. Brad made a guest appearance in one of the episodes of “Friends”. He played the role of Rachel’s former classmate who genuinely hates her. The episode entitled “The One With The Rumor” was enthusiastically received by fans.
At that time, in one of the interviews, Jen said: Marriage is a good thing. Now you can’t say, “Fuck you, I’m getting out of here.” Now you really have to try. She added that she and her beloved were planning at least two children. But something went wrong …
No happy ending
While Jennifer in an interview for The Guardian magazine was mulling over plans for a common future, Brad was on the set of the film “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. He was partnered by Angelina Jolie. Even then, there were rumors that the actors sparked not only in front of the camera. Brad consistently denied these reports. But by the time the movie hit the screens, he and Jennifer were already in the process of divorce. Aniston didn’t want to play the victim role. She argued that the blame for the breakdown of the relationship always lies on both sides.
Meanwhile, in 2006, Angelina Jolie confessed in an interview with “Vogue”: We just became a couple. And I think by the end of the shoot we realized that this could mean more than we previously thought. A US Weekly production worker added fuel to the fire, who revealed that during the erotic scene on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Angelina – instead of wearing nude lingerie – got into Brad’s bed completely naked.
– I will love him for the rest of my life. He is a fantastic man. I don’t regret my time together and I’m not going to dwell on it. We learned a lot. We helped each other and I appreciate it very much. It was a beautiful, complicated relationship – she spoke about ex-husband Jennifer in an interview with “Vanity Fair”. She also emphasized that she wished Brad the best. Meanwhile, Hollywood was buzzing with rumors. There were quite a few who thought Brad had left Jennifer because she put his career ahead of his family life.
Is it just friendship?
Pitt and Jolie have created a true Hollywood power couple. They started a family and multiplied their fortune. Meanwhile, Aniston threw herself into the vortex of work. She found solace only in 2015. Her second husband was actor Justin Theroux. But the relationship did not survive the test of time – it broke up after three years. By then Brad was single. His marriage to Angelina ended with a bang in 2019, after three years of court battle. His wife accused him of alcoholism and the use of violence, while he accused her of morbid jealousy and manipulating children.
When the dust after the divorce of Brad and Angelina cleared, the actor began to be seen in the company of … Jennifer. Every now and then there were reports of their alleged dates, joint trips or even secret engagements. As SAG Pitt congratulated Aniston on the award backstage in 2020, fans of the couple held their breath. But nothing happened – or at least it didn’t happen officially. But Brad and Jen joined forces in a Zoom videoconference for a good cause.
In January this year, the American tabloid New Idea reported that they were going on a holiday together in the Bahamas. The couple neither confirm nor deny most of the rumors. Brad and Jen also avoid showing up in public together. But fans still do not lose hope of a happy ending to their love story and do not believe the words of the actors, who constantly emphasize that they are only united by friendship.
