“Brad and Jen have a wonderful connection that might seem flirtatious at times,” says the source. “They dig each other’s sense of humor and have an infectious energy when they’re together, but they insist things are purely platonic and nothing more than that.”
The Morning Show actress and the Ad Astra star, 56, ended their 5-year marriage in October 2005. One month after finalizing their divorce, Pitt moved on to Angelina Jolie, whom he split from in September 2016 after two years of marriage and 10 years together.
Any bad feelings the exes had for one another is clearly long passed them. Pitt attended the Friends alum’s holiday party at her Bel-Air, California, home earlier this month. He also went to Aniston’s 50th birthday bash in February.
“It took a while for Jen to heal and for Brad to stop feeling bad for how he left her back in 2005,” adds the source. “This is something they’ve taken their time with, and they’re well aware of the hysteria around their relationship among their fans.”
The lines of communication are very open between them, adds the source. “Their bond is solid. They’ve come a really long way.”
