Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are facing rumors of a future reunion, despite her current marriage to husband Justin Theroux.
Immediately after Pitt’s wife, Angelina Jolie, filed for divorce on September 19, reports began to surface, which claimed the 47-year-old actress and her ex-husband, Pitt, have made plans to reunite.
Earlier this month, Pitt was said to be desperate to reunite with Jennifer Aniston, who was rumored to have texted the 52-year-old actor after news of his divorce was confirmed. According to a report by OK! Magazine, via Hollywood Life, Pitt “worked up the courage” to call Jennifer Aniston after receiving her text, and while they were on the phone, they made plans to meet at Pitt’s beach house in Goleta, California.

“It’s the perfect spot because it’s far away from prying eyes,” the magazine’s insider said of the location, adding that Jennifer Aniston considered the home to be a “romantic getaway” for herself and Pitt when they were married.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were married from 2000 to 2005 when Aniston filed for divorce amid rumors of an on-set affair between Pitt and his now-estranged wife, Angelina Jolie. Before the filing, Aniston and Pitt were considered to be one of Hollywood’s rare marital success stories. Then, after Aniston’s filing, Jolie was labeled a home wrecker and husband stealer while the majority of fans sympathized with Aniston.
The magazine’s insider claimed that while Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt reportedly had plans to reunite, their meeting wasn’t anything romantic. Instead, alleged the source, Pitt simply wanted a chance to spend time with someone he “deeply respects” during what has become a difficult moment in his life.
In response to the story, however, Jennifer Aniston’s rep told Hollywood Life the OK! Magazine report was a complete “fabrication,” and noted that the outlet had been “completely wrong” about the actress in the past.
There has also been a report claiming Jennifer Aniston’s husband, Theroux, is on board with her rumored decision to reunite with Pitt.

Jennifer Aniston married Justin Theroux in August of last year, one year after Pitt and Jolie tied the knot, and over the summer, they celebrated their marriage with a trip to the Bahamas. During their trip, Aniston faced rumors of a possible pregnancy, but once they returned, those rumors were shot down.
Jennifer Aniston doesn’t yet have any children. Meanwhile, Pitt and Jolie are parents to six kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and Vivienne and Knox, 8.
As for what Justin Theroux reportedly thought of his wife’s rumored plans to meet with Pitt at his beach house, a source told OK! Magazine, via Gossip Cop, that he wasn’t “the least bit threatened.”
Theroux will “stay home,” but “has no problem with” the alleged rendezvous, the source claimed. “That’s because he trusts [Jennifer Aniston] absolutely, and has faith in the strength of their connection.”
In response to the story, Gossip Cop pointed out that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt never had plans to meet up in the first place, so Theroux couldn’t possibly have any feelings towards a scenario which simply doesn’t exist. Also, the outlet spoke to a source close to Theroux, who assured them that the actor had not given Jennifer Aniston the go-ahead to meet with her ex-husband.
As the messy split between Pitt and Jolie continues to play out, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been spotted together regularly in New York City, where Theroux has recently been promoting his new film, The Girl on the Train.
