Brad Pitt had quite the night at the SAG Awards recently, not only winning an award, but flirting up a storm with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston and making some jokes during his acceptance speech that would have left Angelina Jolie feeling pretty displeased.
Despite the couple's recent (very messy) divorce, they are still in business together, collaborating on Château Miraval. Clearly, tensions between them don't extend to business, especially when it comes to making the big bucks.
In 2008, back in the days when they were still happily married, Brad and Angelina bought a French estate for reportedly $67 million.
Brad and Angelina Own A French Estate Together
It is still owned by the one time power couple, and is the location of the vineyard that makes Château Miraval wine. In the next few months, rosé champagne will be added to the label.
The Famille Perrin produces all of the label's wine, and they're partnered with Brad and Angelina. Marc Perrin, spoke about the new champagne to the Wine Spectator, saying, "We will create the only champagne house which only makes rosé. We are going to try to push the quality of rosé as far as possible in Champagne.”
The Estate Was A Point Of Contention During Divorce Proceedings
In January 2019, the label also released "Studio by Miraval," the second since the couple's divorce. Despite their ongoing business venture, the estate was a major thorn in their sides during divorce proceedings.
In September 2019, a source told Us Weekly, “The sticking point is the value of Miraval. Angelina wants to be awarded the property as hers entirely because it was her idea to purchase the property to begin with.”
The source claimed Brad felt he had been “more than generous with other financial elements” during the couple's marriage and offered Angelina a “one-time lump sum payment of $10 million.”
Brad Made Some Jokes During His Acceptance Speech At The SAG Awards
Something that will be highly unlikely to thaw relations between the former couple, is Brad's recent appearance at the SAG Awards.
The actor won an award and during his acceptance speech made some jokes about his love life and marriage. At one point he said, "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. It's big."
He also claimed the SAG Award would benefit his love life, joking, "I got to add this to my Tinder profile."
Brad Was Flirting With Jennifer Aniston Backstage
Angelina will surely be angered by the jokes, but may be enraged at the photos that came out after the awards, showing Brad flirting with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston backstage (the wife he left for Angelina, let's not forget.)
After watching the proceedings, fans went into meltdown, desperate for Brad and Jen to get back together. However, in reality, should either woman really want Brad back?
The two Hollywood actresses could very much do better than Brad, and hopefully, they will.
