They say exes can be friends. It seems very true in the case of Hollywood actors Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston who were once married. The actors had a reunion at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards and the photographs from their interaction are setting the internet on fire.
At the SAG Awards, After their respective wins for Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood and The Morning Show, they were caught backstage as they had a friendly exchange. The photos from their reunion are beautiful as the two of them were seen sharing a laugh. Not just that, right after his win, Brad Pitt waited backstage as he saw Jennifer Aniston win her SAG Award and he watched her speech.
Jennifer accepted Best Actress in a Drama for The Morning Show. Reflecting on the years when she was working hard to get a huge break in the business, she said, "They were humble beginnings, but you have to start somewhere!" She thanked executive producer and co-star Reese Witherspoon, along with head writer Kerry Ehrin, and said that the characters were, "layered and complicated and messy and ugly and just beautifully human."
Giving a huge shoutout to her longtime friend Adam Sandler for Uncut Gems, she concluded, "Adam Sandler, your performance is extraordinary and your magic is real, buddy. I love you."
Brad Pitt took home Best Actor in Supporting Role for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. "I've got to add this to my Tinder profile," Pitt joked at the beginning of the speech. "Thank you, my brothers, my sisters. This means so much, more than I can possibly fathom," he said. "I want you to know I watch everything. I watch you all and the work has been mesmerizing."
"Let's be honest, it was a difficult part. The guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn’t get on with his wife. It was a big stretch," he quipped as the camera panned at Jennifer Aniston smiling.
"I love this community so much. I met so many amazing people along the way. We know pain. We know loneliness. We bring that to the screen. We know moments of grace. We know moments of wisdom. We bring that to the screen," said the actor. "God damn, I think that's a worthy endeavor. It has been at this thing for 30 years and some projects work, some projects don't. Just get onto the next and keep telling stories," he shared with those in attendance. Enjoy this evening because tomorrow, it's back to work," he concluded his acceptance speech.
