Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston Could Have Run-In at Toronto Film Festival
It's a small world after all. Eight years after their divorce, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston may find themselves face-to-face at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall. As revealed in the lineup, released Tuesday, July 23, both stars have movies set to premiere during the 11-day festival, which kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 5.
Aniston, 44, has the film Life of Crime, also starring John Hawkes and Mos Def. The movie will debut as the closing night film on Sept. 14, and though it's still early, a source tells Us Weekly that the actress plans to be there to support it.
Pitt, meanwhile, has 12 Years a Slave, a historical drama based on the autobiography of the same name by Solomon Northup, a free black man who was kidnapped in Washington, D.C., in 1841 and sold into slavery. Costarring Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti, Alfre Woodward, and British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, the movie has no set premiere date but is included in the TIFF lineup.
The last time Pitt and his ex-wife had films in the same festival was five years ago, at the 2008 Toronto fest. Pitt was in town to promote his Coen Brothers flick Burn After Reading; Aniston had the quirky romantic comedy Management.
Much has changed since then. Both stars are now happily engaged to other people -- Aniston to her Wanderlust costar Justin Theroux, and Pitt to longtime love Angelina Jolie, whom he met while making Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004.
