Last week, Jennifer Aniston turned 50.
Naturally, this development prompted countless tabloid headlines about how Jen is desperate to be married, desperate to have a kid, desperate to reboot her career.
All of that is BS, obviously, as Jen's career is still on fire, and she's crushing it in a way that few people are capable of at any age.
But amidst all the nonsense, there was one kernel of truth that's worth discussing.
Jen invited Brad Pitt to her birthday party, and the actor was definitely in attendance at the star-studded bash.
Rumors about Brad and Jen getting back together have been circulating non-stop ever since Pitt split with Angelina Jolie.
Officially, Brad and Jen are just friends, but at least one insider says there are still some strong feelings between the exes.
“Brad felt good seeing Jennifer again and spending time with her at her birthday party,” a source close to the situation tells Hollywood Life.
“Brad has done a lot of work on himself since being in a relationship with her, so he feels like a different guy," the insider continues.
"He also still has a lot of love for Jen, his [first] ex-wife."
The source even goes so far as to claim that Brad is hoping Jen's birthday party was the first step on the road to reconciliation.
"He hopes attending her birthday party may be the start of a new beginning in their journey together," says the tipster.
"He is trying to keep an open mind about everything.”
The informant makes sure to point out that Brad is not rushing anything, and -- for the time being at least -- he's content to just be friends with her.
“Brad is in a great place and wants to share his life with people he cares about and to become friends with Jen again would be a big win for him," says the source.
"It’s really cool that he can mend fences, and as he gets older, he wants to be in a place where everything is good, and being friends with Jen again and having that friendship again is very important to him.”
Well, we wish them all the best in their friendship.
Of course, like the rest of the world, we're actually hoping these two will give their relationship another chance.
Make it happen, you two perfect-looking people!
If not for yourselves, then do it for us!
