Jennifer Aniston caught smirking as ex Brad Pitt jokes about bringing a date along for Golden Globes 2020
The amusement on the 'Friends' actress' face was unmistakable as her former husband joked about why he decided to show up at the award without a date
Just as Brad Pitt was delivering his acceptance speech after winning the Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 5, for his role in 'Once Upon a Time in … Hollywood,' the camera panned around to capture a shot of his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston smirking.
The amusement on the 50-year-old actress's face was unmistakable as her former husband joked about why he decided to show up at the award sans a date when he could have at least brought his mother for the special occasion.
"I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn’t because anyone I stand next to they say I’m dating. It’d just be awkward,” Pitt said after he went up on the stage, just as the cameras recorded Aniston’s reaction.
Needless to say, fans who were waiting for a reunion between the two actors, went berserk on social media. “Thank you to the camera person who panned to Jennifer Aniston during this Brad Pitt line,” one fan wrote, while another said, “Me scanning the audience for Jennifer Aniston while Brad Pitt was making his acceptance speech."
Earlier in the night, Pitt was asked on the red carpet, "Everyone is waiting, they're hoping for this moment when you and Jennifer run into each other so they can take their picture."
Very Coolly, he answered: “I’d run into Jen. She’s a good friend.”
He also went on to joke that it was the “second most important” reunion for his ex-wife actress this year, as he cleverly alluded to her 'Friends' reunion that nearly broke the internet.
Pitt did not forget to give a shoutout to his costar in the movie, Leonardo DiCaprio.
“I want to thank my partner-in-crime, LDC,” Pitt said of DiCaprio. “You know, before ‘The Revenant,’ I used to watch, year after year, his co-stars accept awards and get up and thank him profusely. I know why. He’s an all-star, he’s a gent, and I wouldn’t be here without you, man. I thank you.”
