Jennifer Aniston’s star-studded 50th birthday party brought out all of Hollywood’s stars, from Reese Witherspoon to Robert Downey Jr., but fans were interested in only one attendee in particular: Brad Pitt.
What appeared to be the back of Pitt’s head was spotted walking into the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles, the site of his ex-wife’s party, held Saturday in Los Angeles.
Although it’s unclear whether that head actually belonged to Pitt, that didn’t stop fans (or E! or People, for that matter) from getting a little excited about the possibility of a reunion of what was once Hollywood’s favorite couple.
“It’s like a FRIENDs episode!! She’s with Ross, then not, then back again!!” wrote one fan on Twitter.
Other folks weren’t too pleased about Pitt showing up to Aniston’s birthday.
“The fact that most commenters are hoping that Jen takes back a man who cheated during their marriage & LEFT her for someone else is seriously disturbing,” commented another person.
Aniston’s former castmates and friends, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow also came out to help the birthday girl ring in her 50th. (Cox’s ex, David Arquette, was also allegedly spotted.)
Demi Moore, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were also photographed outside the hotel while Gwyneth Paltrow (who, like Aniston, counts Pitt as an ex) and Ellen DeGeneres were also reportedly seen.
Pitt and Aniston were married from 2000 to 2005. That same year, Pitt began a relationship with his “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” co-star Angelina Jolie. After dating for almost a decade, Pitt and Jolie married in 2014, only to file for divorce two years later. Their split still isn’t finalized.
Not spotted at the party: Aniston’s second husband, Justin Theroux, from whom she separated last year.
