One of the most talked-about moments during Sunday night’s Golden Globes was Jennifer Aniston’s facial expressions during Brad Pitt’s acceptance speech for best supporting actor. (He won for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.) The actor jokes, “I wanted to bring my mom [to the show], but I couldn’t because any woman I stand next to they say I’m dating.” Of course, the camera panned right to Aniston after he said this, and she seemed to be in good spirits, laughing and smiling. The internet swiftly broke.
Now we’re learning a little more about what happened between Pitt and Aniston after the show. According to E! News, both actors attended Netflix’s Golden Globes after-party at the The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, but they “kept their distance.”
“Brad was in a great mood and very social with everybody—except Jennifer Aniston, who kept her distance at a booth a level up behind Brad,” a source said.
However, the two did interact briefly at the next after-party they hit up: the CAA bash at Los Angeles’s Sunset Tower. “They said hello very quickly,” another source told E!. “Jen arrived after Brad. It was brief, but [they] were very cordial and friendly and seemed happy to be there. They approached each other once they saw each other inside and looked happy as they started to hug and say hello. Jen whispered something to Brad, but it wasn’t in an affectionate way. They both didn’t seem like they wanted to make a big deal about being together in the same room although it was a private party. They were trying to be low-key. Brad left shortly after and didn’t stay at the party long.”
Don’t read too much into this, people. Just because Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt had a friendly conversation at an industry party doesn’t mean they’re getting back together. It’s hard to believe, I know, but you can actually be civil with your exes and not have romantic feelings attached.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight before the Golden Globes, Pitt said he’d welcome a run-in with Aniston and that she’s a “good friend.” Good vibes only in 2020, y’all.
