Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston broke up in what was an ugly split years ago, ending what was perceived to be the perfect Hollywood marriage. They were the ultimate power couple. The romantic relationship would not last, though.
Pitt very quickly moved on and married Angelina Jolie, and Aniston went on to her own relationships with others, as well. But now, in what people are seeing as the stars aligning, both Pitt and Aniston are both single and there have been some signs over the last several months that the former couple is attempting to rekindle their relationship.
Both will be in attendance for the Golden Globes, with Aniston having been nominated for This Morning and Pitt, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The real storyline here is that both will also be attending the same private after-party. What can we take away from this, though?
Brad Pitt Purchases Their 'Happy Place' Former House
It's worth taking a step back to delve into what has happened between the former couple over the last several months and how this sets the stage for what would be a culminating moment during the private Golden Globes after-party.
Only recently, the house that both Pitt and Aniston built together and what they called their 'happy place' went back on the market. While they were together, it was a special place for them. Pitt recognized that and swiftly purchased the house back with the intention of gifting it to Aniston and showing her that he was serious about having a future with her.
A source close to the former couple shared, "As soon as the house went on the market back in May, Brad knew that buying it back would prove to Jen just how serious he is about building a future with her." This would not be the only sign that there might be something in the works, though.
Brad Pitt The First to Arrive and Last to Leave from Jennifer's Christmas Party
For the Christmas holiday, Aniston has a luxurious and lively party at her home with a number of high-profile A-listers in attendance. One of those people? Brad Pitt. Yes, Aniston and Pitt have maintained a friendship with each other since their split, but what's interesting is Pitt's punctuality and how long he stayed.
It was reported that not only was Pitt one of the first people to arrive at Aniston's Christmas party, he was also one of the last ones to leave. According to a source that spoke with Entertainment Tonight, "Brad Pitt arrived at Jennifer Aniston’s holiday party a little after 7 p.m. on Saturday," the show revealed. "He was among the first to arrive and the second to last guest to leave around 11 p.m."
It's unknown what went on during the time that he was there at the party, but perhaps there was some one-on-one time. We don't know for sure, but will Aniston and Pitt once again be together at the Golden Globes?
Pitt and Aniston to Be Close to Each Other During Show
Enter the 2020 Golden Globes. Pitt and Aniston will be in attendance, as they have both been nominated for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and This Morning, respectively. While we don't know if they'll make time to see each other on the red carpet beforehand, they definitely will be near each other or together during the awards ceremony and afterward.
The organizers of the Globes have reported that Aniston and Pitt will not be at the same table, but they will only be a matter of feet away from each other. While it's likely they were attempting to grab headlines by deciding on this arrangement, it still provides an avenue for the former couple to interact during the show and something that certainly will be intriguing to watch.
Former Couple to Attend Ultra-Private Globes After Party
After all is said and done for the award show, Aniston and Pitt will be attending the same ultra-private after-party. It's unclear in what capacity they'll be arriving or how much they'll interact, but based on the series of recent events and their ongoing close relationship, it's almost a guarantee that they will definitely spend some time together.
Since rumors have begun to swirl, neither of the two has made any public comments on potentially rekindling a romantic relationship, but this will be a story that will continue to develop. The cameras will no doubt be on both of them as the evening commences, and that's something we're not upset about.
