Brad Pitt is making things right with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. After breaking up with Angelina Jolie, the actor quit drinking, underwent counseling and is now making amends with everyone in his life, including Aniston. Does Pitt secretly want her back?
An inside source told Life & Style that Pitt reached out to Aniston and apologized for his actions during their marriage. The two parted ways back in 2005 and rumors quickly surfaced that Pitt was having an affair with Jolie, whom he met on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. The divorce was hard on Aniston, and it sounds like Pitt apologized for making her go through such a heartbreaking time.
“Brad apologized for all the heartbreak,” a source stated. “He doesn’t open up like that, but through therapy and recovery, he’s learned to express his feelings. He addressed all the hurt he caused her.”
This isn’t the first time Pitt has allegedly reached out to his ex-wife. Shortly after Jolie filed for divorce in September, insiders claimed that Pitt was texting Aniston and rekindling their friendship. While Aniston has not addressed the rumors, Metro reports that she was happy that Pitt reached out and made amends.
“She was incredibly receptive to the amends he was making. She told him she forgives him and to focus on the future,” the source explained. “She was really won over by his apology. A new era has begun for them.”
Just because Pitt and Aniston are talking again doesn’t mean they will get back together. The Friends alum is happily married to actor Justin Theroux and is on the verge of celebrating their two-year anniversary. As far as Brad Pitt is concerned, he recently opened up about the divorce and co-parenting his six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
“Well, there’s a lot to tell them because there’s understanding the future, there’s understanding the immediate moment and why we’re at this point, and then it brings up a lot of issues from the past that we haven’t talked about,” Pitt shared. “So, our focus is that everyone comes out stronger and better people — there is no other outcome.”
Pitt and Aniston were married for five years before calling it quits in 2005. Pitt started dating Jolie shortly after the divorce while Aniston has been linked to a number of different celebrities over the years. She and Theroux tied the knot in 2015 and are still going strong.
While we wait to learn more about Pitt and Aniston’s relationship, Daily Mail reports that Pitt was just spotted exiting a theater in Los Angeles carrying an energy drink. The Allied star sported a newsboy cap, dark jeans, and a jacket on the outing and appeared high in spirits. The sighting comes a month after Pitt’s revealing interview with GQ Style in which he opened up about his boozing past.
After explaining how he could “drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka,” Pitt admitted that alcohol ruined his relationships. Fortunately, Pitt was able to get the help he needed and has been sober ever since the divorce. With a bright future still ahead, Pitt claims that he has nothing else to hide.
“I’ve got no secrets. I’ve got nothing to hide. We’re human and I find the human condition very interesting,” he shared. “If we’re not talking about it, then we’re not getting better.”
Pitt later admitted that his life has been strange since the breakup but his time in therapy is really helping out. He did not address the rumors about Aniston.
