JENNIFER Aniston and Brad Pitt “love and trust each other again” 15 years after their bitter split.
They were once Hollywood’s most-loved couple after marring in a private wedding ceremony in Malibu back in 2000.
But after Brad starred in Mr and Mrs Smith with co-star Angelina Jolie, the so-called perfect marriage crumbled.
A source told Hollywood Life: “They’ve built their bond and rekindled their friendship so much more than it was the past few years now that they’re both single.
“They’ve realised what’s important in life and since they shared so much love for each other it’s such a nice thing for them both to have this kind of close friendship again.
“They trust each other and love the fact that they have someone who has their back.”
He was a guest at Jennifer’s Christmas party – and was one of the last to leave the celebrity bash.
Jennifer, 50, wasn’t the only ex Brad came face-to-face with at the bash – which was held at her Bel Air mansion – as former fiancee Gwyneth Paltrow was also in attendance alongside her husband Brad Falchuk.
It proved Brad and Jen have put the past behind them as they flaunt their rekindled friendship in front of A-list stars.
In January 2005, Brad and Jen announced that they were separating and two months later Jennifer filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
Brad and Angelina have always denied an affair on set – despite hooking up once Brad was single.
But the new A-list couple shocked the world when they revealed they were getting divorced in 2016 after 12 years together and two years of marriage.
Angelia shares six children with her ex Brad – Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10.
Maddox, Zahara and Pax were adopted from orphanages in Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam, respectively.
The remaining three children – Shiloh, Viviene and Knox – are their biological children.
Jennifer enjoyed a two-year marriage to actor Justin Theroux. They spent Thanksgiving this year together, despite their split in 2017.
