The former couple's friendly demeanor towards each other may have sparked rumors but they insist that they are old friends catching up.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have been trying to mend their relationship over the past year, what with him showing up for her 50th birthday and her annual Christmas Party. They were indications that they are mending their once fractured friendship. Their efforts show that exes can be friends and be supportive of each other. They have not been photographed publicly but fans want their favorite once-married couple to get back together. Something that happened during the SAG Awards night fuelled more hopes, though Aniston has brushed the rumors aside.
Both Pitt and Aniston were winners at the award show. Pitt won for his role in the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Aniston for The Morning Show. The rumors began after Pitt made his acceptance speech and Aniston clapped at his sharp comments, which seems to be a reference to Angelina Jolie.
"Let's be honest, it was a difficult part," Pitt joked, according to CNN. "The guy who gets high, takes his shirt off, and doesn't get on with his wife. It's a big stretch. Big," he added.
After Pitt had accepted his award, he was captured looking at the screen while Aniston, who teared up, made her acceptance speech for winning in the category Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series. The moment, where he looked on at her while holding an award in his hand, was shared by the SAG Awards official Instagram account.
They were also photographed being friendly to each other during a backstage reunion. Pitt reportedly stopped Aniston and held her hand, which too has been captured by the photographers. These sweet moments have led the fans to start speculating about their growing friendship, but Aniston laughed off the rumors.
The Friends actress has been on top of the world since The Morning Show, of which she is a producer too, won her many nominations. The duo had been seen attending the same Golden Globes after-party earlier this month too, according to Harper's Bazaar. She might be more occupied with the accolades coming her way rather than focusing on her relationship with the Troy actor.
"It's hysterical," Aniston told Entertainment Tonight on the SAG Awards red carpet. "But what else are they going to talk about?"
Pitt has also denied all dating rumors during the last award they both attended. "I wanted to bring my mom but I couldn’t, because anyone I stand next to, they say I’m dating," joked Pitt during his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes. "And that would just be awkward."
However, they may only be friends who have seen each other through the hardest times and have come full circle to support each other. Fans are not convinced though and the internet erupted after seeing these sweet moments between the two. Some people are not convinced that them getting back together is a great idea since he had left her for ex-wife Angelina Jolie.

While another fan said, "If they don’t get back together, love is fake. it doesn’t exist."

Other fans just don't care what anyone has to say about it. They just want to see the couple together again.
