After pictures emerged this week, people think that Brad Pitt's new girlfriend looks just like ex, Jennifer Aniston, and now we can't unsee it.
It seems that Jennifer Aniston's relationship with Brad Pitt was a lot more intense than we anticipated...And perhaps that love has never died ...?
Could Brad still be harboring a secret crush?The internet suspects so ...
Why, you may ask?Well, he's stepped out with a new suspected girlfriend, and people have noticed something.
She looks a little familiar.In fact, some think she bears a striking resemblance to a certain ex.
Jen, of course!*Heart flutters*
The 2 blonde bombshells were matched in true Hollywood style by their agents in 1998.
Jen was still filming Friends and had just completed shooting classic Rom-Com, The Object of My Affection, with Paul Rudd.
Brad, on the other hand, was wrapping up filming Meet Joe Black and was about to start shooting for Fight Club. The 2 kept their relationship a secret at first - you know, probably wanting to avoid any public speculation (if only they had known!).
Stepping out together for the first time at the 1999, Emmy Awards, Jen and Brad shared their romance with the world.
Only 3 months later, during a Sting concert (of all places), the loved-up kids announced their engagement. Stepping on stage and waving the engagement ring to crowds of applause, it really did seem to be a Hollywood-fairytale.
Can you think of a more iconic 90s couple?
Sadly, there does not seem to be any video footage of the Sting concert, I guess this was a time before concerts revolved around the crowd filming e v e r y t h i n g.
The couple wed in sunny Malibu in July of 2000.
The ceremony itself cost a hefty one million dollars, with $76,000 spent on security. Guests were asked to sign confidentiality agreements and airspace surrounding the ceremony was restricted.
Brad and Jen sure were sticklers for privacy!
The Aniston-Pitt privacy stance is perhaps the reason that there remains so much mystery around what the marriage was really like.
In an interview given by Jennifer in September 2001 with Rolling Stone Magazine, the star talked about being 1 year into her marriage with Brad and all appeared pretty darn rosy.
In the Rolling Stone interview, Jennifer divulged how the couple had purchased a $15 million property, liked to bond over music, and may or may not be potheads.
The actress' love for Brad is apparent throughout the interview, she can’t seem to help but bring him up at any given opportunity.
But a couple of years later, the cracks began to appear in the fairytale romance of Brad and Jen.
Talking to W Magazine, Jen was asked if Brad was the love of her life.
She responded with an awkward rambling answer that ends with, "He’s certainly a big love in my life."
All good things must come to an end, right?
We’ve got to that point in the love story of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt that we never want to get to… it’s all downhill from here, guys (or is it?).
Well, let’s just cover what must be covered… Let’s talk about Mr and Mrs Smith.
It's May 2004, and "happily" married Brad Pitt starts filming the assassin/spy flick alongside the single (and admittedly... very beautiful) Angelina Jolie.
The 2 co-stars spent an awful lot of time together and got on very well.
The press had a field day during the shooting of Mr & Mrs Smith and rumors about how close Angie and Brad were getting circulated across the world...
And by January 2005, Jennifer and Brad had announced their separation.
In their joint statement, the couple contested the tabloid rumors and insisted that they would remain friends.
It didn't take long for Brad and Angelina to go official...And over the years, they went on to have 6 children together - 3 of whom were conceived and 3 of whom were adopted.
But relations between the 2 exes did not stay so civil...Jen publicly slammed Brad and Angelina for their insensitivity following the break-up. We mean, fair play to Jen! She has every right to be upset after Angelina publicly discussed the building of feelings between herself and Brad whilst filming Mr & Mrs Smith (which we all know was still during Jen and Brad’s marriage).
But clearly in the long run, things weren't meant to be.Brad and Angelina split in 2016. The divorce seemed rather messy, with allegations of substance abuse problems and issues between Brad and the kids coming to the fore.
And though there's a certain amount of bad blood between Brangelina ...Brad and Jen seem to have reconnected during these difficult times. Or, as some suspect, something more ...
Because a few months ago at the SAG Awards ...The backstage pictures snapped of Brad and Jen got the whole internet talking.
The pair were locked in an adorable private joke ...And then as Jen started to walk away, Brad pulled her back in for more lols.
Reports have been surfacing of a reconciliation between the pair...
