Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt may have split more than 10 years ago, but the former spouses still have a strong connection after years of being apart.

Following their divorce in 2005, Pitt began dating Angelina Jolie and married the actress in 2014. Meanwhile, Aniston married “Leftovers” actor Justin Theroux. However, news of Jolie and Pitt’s divorce was revealed in 2016, meanwhile, Aniston and Theroux split in late 2017. 

Shortly after the “Friends” alum filed for divorce from Pitt in 2005, paparazzi snapped photos of the actor getting cozy with Jolie, sparking infidelity rumors. Although the rumors strained Pitt and Aniston’s relationship, the two have been able to work through their differences.

“A reason Brad and Jen get along so well now, is that they’ve agreed to bury the past and not analyze what went wrong. They’re both looking forward, not back,” a source told Us Weekly

“He’s taken responsibility. He’s tried to make amends. He didn’t realize the magnitude of the hurt he caused Jen at the time. He was so swept up in Angelina Jolie, he couldn’t see outside that tunnel.”

Despite the past, Pitt and Aniston have been able to mend their strained relationship. “They’ve always cared about each other, and they think fondly of their time together,” an insider told Us Weekly

Although longtime fans have been hoping for a reunion between Aniston and Pitt, it appears their new relationship is strictly platonic.

“For Jen, seeing Brad is like seeing a dear old friend again. They have a real bond,” the source added.
