For anyone not aware that Brad Pitt once was married to Jennifer Aniston, Twitter’s response to the news that Brad and Angelina Jolie were divorcing would have been baffling. Jokes about “karma” along with images of Jennifer chuckling with glee went viral, along with some fans of the once-married couple wishing that they would get together again. With Aniston’s marriage to Justin Theroux ignored by those wanting a return of the Friends actress and Brad’s romance, reports about a possible reunion and Jennifer sticking by the actor boosted those hopes.
In Touch reported that despite an unhappy ending to her marriage to Brad, Jennifer is on his team.
“She can’t help but stick up for him. She knows how much he loves those kids,” a source told In Touch.
But while that might sound intriguing, Hollywood Life is taking the intrigue possibilities one step further, citing a source’s revelation that Aniston and Pitt have a reunion in the works because he wants to apologize.
Although it’s Justin Bieber who wrote the song “Sorry,” Pitt allegedly wants to express the same sentiment to Aniston by reconnecting. Brad has “owed” the Friends actress an apology for more than 10 years, according to the insider.
Pitt, 52, has been feeling “bad” about the crumbling of his marriage, and therefore “realized” it was time that he express his apologies to Aniston, 47, explained the source.
“[Brad] never properly said to [Jennifer], ‘I’m sorry I hurt you,’ and that’s what he wants to do.”
Describing Pitt as “a little glib” about his split from Aniston, the insider also shared that the plot he’s hatched involves getting away for a private reconciliation where he can “make amends, once and for all.” The place Brad has chosen for their secret meeting? His “beachfront ranch,” which is located in Goleta, California.
The alleged reunion is “hugely important” to Pitt, added the source, who revealed that it will give Brad the chance “to take responsibility for breaking her heart after all these years.” As for where Theroux will be during this reported meeting?
Gossip Cop investigated the reports of a reunion as well as OK magazine’s story that Justin allegedly has no issues with his wife meeting up with her former husband Brad.
Theroux is not “on board” with Aniston’s and Pitt’s reunion, according to Gossip Cop. OK’s source alleged that Jennifer is interested in meeting up with Brad, and Justin “isn’t the least bit threatened,” planning to “stay home” because of his trust in his wife.
“[Justin] has no problem with [Aniston’s meeting with Pitt]. He trusts Jen absolutely, and has faith in the strength of their connection.”
But a source close to Theroux told Gossip Cop that he has not told Jennifer to go ahead and meet with Pitt and that the issue hasn’t even arisen.
As for how Justin is dealing with having his wife dragged into the drama of Pitt and Jolie, he’s staying calm and expressing pride in the Friends actress.
Theroux even revealed that he’s fine with being called “Mr. Jennifer Aniston,” pointed out The Knot.
“[The nickname] doesn’t really get under my skin,” stated Justin. “It’s just one of those things that’s a shorthand for describing who I am.”
When it comes to describing his wife, the actor doesn’t hold back in sharing just how much he admires her.
“[Jennifer] is a proper bada*s. She has lived through a lot of bulls**t.”
Noting that some “would have crumbled under some of the stresses” that Aniston is experienced, Theroux gushed about just how strong she is.
“I’m very proud of her for that, for the way she handles herself. So in a weird way it’s an honor to stand behind her,” he contended. “Truly, in that sense, she’s amazing.”
Jennifer and Justin just had the opportunity to show their love for each other by celebrating their one-year anniversary. And for those curious about their recipe for staying together in the spotlight that’s always shining on their relationship, Theroux dished up their secrets about what keeps their marriage strong.
“We appreciate each other’s sense of humor,” he explained. “We respect one another, and we get along.”
