Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt ended up at the same SAG Awards 2020 bash hours after setting the internet ablaze.
The former couple, who were pictured having a cozy reunion after winning awards on Sunday night, both attended the Netflix party at the Sunset Tower hotel in Los Angeles.
They weren’t pictured together as Pitt, 56, was seen with his “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, Al Pacino, and Peter Dinklage, while Aniston, 50, caught up with Netflix boss Ted Sarandos, and Netflix head of original films Scott Stuber, alongside Laura Dern and Taikia Waititi.
The “Friends” star, who won Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role in “The Morning Show”, then headed to dinner at the hotel’s Tower Bar, one of her favorite haunts.
She was seen dining with pals Amanda Anka and hubby Jason Bateman, alongside co-star Billy Crudup and BFF and producing partner Kristin Hahn.
An onlooker told Page Six, “We thought Brad would come into dinner, but no such luck, everyone in the restaurant was looking out for him — we all kept turning around to see if he had arrived!”
Aniston and Pitt, who remained friends after their 2005 split, looked flirty as they were photographed running into one another backstage at the SAGs.
The photos quickly circulated around the Internet, much to the delight of fans everywhere.
In one photo of their backstage chat, both were seen smiling as Aniston touched Pitt’s arm. Another photo showed him holding onto her wrist as she walked away.
Pitt was also filmed proudly watching Aniston’s acceptance speech.
When later told about this, Aniston told Extra: “That’s so sweet. It’s just, we’ve all grown up together, we really have and it just feels like a really fun night to celebrate and, you know, cheer each other on and keep working.”
In his own acceptance speech for best performance by a male actor in a supporting role for “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood”, Pitt joked about his Tinder profile — and his split from Angelina Jolie, as Aniston smiled and clapped.
In December, a source told Page Six there would be no tension between the pair at the awards shows, adding: “Brad and Jen are still friends. They speak once in a while, and even though there are these fools who say they’re getting back together, of course they’re not. But they will always be fond of each other.”
Pitt is still mid-divorce from Jolie, with a sticking point over access to their kids. Although the younger kids are mandated by a court to see him, it’s more difficult for him to see the older kids, we’re told.
