Joaquin Phoenix, who played a terrifying Joker in 2019’s blockbuster Joker may have taken home the award for the best actor at the annual Golden Globes, but it was actually Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston who stole the spotlight as fans anticipated their public reunion. The two have rarely crossed paths in public since their split.
Brad and Jennifer, who were married from 2000 to 2005, made their red carpet appearance approximately 20 minutes apart, each selectively working the press line. The two were also nominated for Golden Globe Awards – while Jennifer was nominated in the best actress category for her work on The Morning Show, Pitt was nominated for best supporting actor for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Brad said, “I’ll run into Jen; she’s a good friend. The second most important reunion of her year.”
Interestingly, the Pitt/Aniston attention didn’t end on the red carpet.
As Pitt was telling a joke about his mom after his win for best supporting actor, the camera shot to Aniston, who was watching intently.
“I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn’t because anyone I stand next to, they say I’m dating,” he said. “So it’d just be awkward.”
