Jennifer Aniston took home the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series on Sunday, January 19, and she had someone very important watching her speech: Brad Pitt.
Yes, Pitt—who had just won the SAG for Best Supporting Actor—made a point to catch Aniston’s speech while he was backstage. “Another look at Brad Pitt watching Jennifer Aniston winning her statue for #TheMorningShow at the #SAGAwards,” The Hollywood Reporter captioned a tweet with a video of Pitt. Watch it for yourself, below:
Earlier in the evening, cameras caught Aniston’s reaction to a marriage joke Pitt made in his acceptance speech. He quipped that playing a character “who gets high, takes his shift off and doesn’t get on with his wife” was a stretch, which got a smile out of Aniston.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had a brief reunion backstage at the SAGs. Here are some photos of that:
But don’t think any of this is a sign they’re getting back together. These two are just good friends—Pitt said as much at the Golden Globes when asked if he hoped to run into Aniston at the show. “I’ll run into Jen. She’s a good friend. The second most important reunion of her year,” he said, making a subtle nod to all the rumors the Friends cast is reuniting.
According to E! News, the two also had a friendly (but brief) catch-up session at a Golden Globes after-party. “They said hello very quickly,” a source said. “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.”
