Fans are very excited this week after a mysterious male figure was spotted in the background of Courteney Cox's video of Jennifer Aniston...

 

Speculation is rife once more.

Jennifer's close friend and Friends co-star, Courteney Cox recently shared a video of the actress playing pool (pretty badly, might I add).

But, in the background of the comical video...

A rather suspicious figure can be seen.

Now, it is unclear as to who joined the girls in their game of pool...

But, of course, fans have their own ideas.

Could it be Jennifer's old flame, Brad Pitt?!

Here's what we know...

It's been a rollercoaster of a relationship.

The pair were matched in a true Hollywood style by their agents in 1998, but they kept their romance tightly under wraps for the first year.

But, stepping out together for the first time at the 1999 Emmy Awards, Jen and Brad officially shared their romance with the world.

Only 3 months later, during a Sting concert (of all places), the loved-up couple announced their engagement. Stepping on stage and waving the engagement ring to crowds of applause, it really did seem to be a Hollywood-fairytale.

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.

This Aniston-Pitt privacy stance is perhaps the reason that there remains so much mystery around what the marriage was really like.

In an interview in September 2001, Jennifer had talked about being one year into her marriage with Brad, and things seemed to be going pretty well.

In the interview, the actress divulged how the couple had purchased a $15 million property, liked to bond over music, and may or may not be potheads.

Aniston’s love for Brad was apparent throughout the interview, and she couldn'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, Aniston 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."

But, sadly, all good things must come to an end.

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.

Anyway, 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, Aniston and Pitt 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...

Aniston publicly slammed Pitt and Jolie for their insensitivity following the break-up.

In response to Jolie’s public comments about the blossoming of her and Pitt’s relationship, Aniston spoke to Vogue in 2008.

Huffpost notes that Jen told Vogue: "I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool."

But clearly, 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.

Because a few months ago at the SAG Awards ...

The backstage pictures snapped of Brad and Jen got the whole internet talking.

And that's not all.

The Hollywood Reporter also shared this picture of Brad watching Jen's acceptance speech for Best Female Actor in a Drama Series... And he seemed very proud.

We've been eagerly awaiting acknowledgment from either Brad or Jen...

via: Getty Images

But the 2 have been stubbornly tight-lipped about the situation - until quite recently.

We already know that Brad had stepped up to make sure Jen was comfortable being friends again.

via: Getty Images

Reports have come in that in 2016, just after Brad announced his separation from Angelina, the actor reached out to Jen and took the bold move of "apologizing" for his part in the split.

It seems that time is truly the best healer...

"Right now they just love and adore each other and have been much closer friends since their divorces."

And now, fresh rumors have arisen.

Last week, Jennifer's Friends co-star, Courteney Cox, shared a video of the pair enjoying a rather disastrous game of pool.

The whole thing is very comical.

It starts by showing Courteney expertly slamming the balls into the pockets...

And then switches to a not-so-expert Jennifer, who seems to be really struggling with the game.

via: Instagram

The video is hilarious, and a handful of their friends can be seen standing in the background, laughing everytime Jennifer misses a shot.

But, out of all the ominous figures gathered in the room...

via: Instagram

There has been one that has been getting fans very excited.

Some eagle-eyed Twitter users are convinced that they spotted Brad in the background of Courteney's video.

via: Instagram

No, this is not a drill.

Here's the evidence.

Twitter user, Lucy on the Ground, shared these zoomed-in screenshots, writing: "Guys is this Brad Pitt in the background of Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston pool hall video YES OR NO I NEED ANSWERS THANK YOU."

People were quick to weigh in with their expertise...

And many believed it very well could be Brad, especially going by this comparison photo of him in a similar baseball cap.

However, not everyone was too convinced.

Some people believe that Brad would never wear a baseball cap like that... You know, like they know him personally.

We may never know the truth...

But Lucy did report later that Brad was allegedly on a romantic vacation with a German model... Though, personally, I hope that it was simply a cover-up.
