A source recently told Us Weekly that while the World War Z star, 55, “doesn’t like to dwell on the past,” he “of course wishes he’d handled the end of their marriage in a more thoughtful manner.” The insider added, “He asked for Jen’s forgiveness a long time ago and she gave it.” And it seems like the two may be on good terms again as the actor reportedly attended his ex-wife’s star-studded 50th birthday party on Saturday, February 9.
An insider recently told the outlet that the Friends alum “mostly mingled with her girlfriends” during her celebration but was “happy” that the Oscar winner was able to make an appearance. “Jen spoke to Brad briefly. At one point she hugged him and thanked him for coming,” the source said. “It didn’t seem like that big of a deal to Jen that her ex had arrived …. The invite went out to a ton of people and [Brad] accepted. She was happy he was there, but that was it. She was busy making the rounds and excited to see so many people near and dear to her.”
The ex-pair married in 2000 and officially called it quits in 2005 and since it’s been more than ten years since then it’s nice hearing that the two may be getting along these days. As for what the duo did afterward their highly publicized divorce, Jennifer went on to marry Justin Theroux, but they too split in 2017, while Brad made one-half of quite the power couple when he married Angelina Jolie, whom he also later divorced in 2016.
Late last year, the Horrible Bosses star revealed to Elle that while she may have had two marriages that didn’t work out, she still doesn’t seem them as a failure. “My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in [my] personal opinion,” she said at the time. “And when they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn’t exist within that arrangement anymore.”
