The divorce of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston remains to be one of Hollywood's worst heartbreaks.
And now, Jen An's heartbreaking reaction to when Brad and Angelia went public has re-surfaced and it's just as devastating. Keep scrolling to find out what she had to say...
The 2 blonde bombshells were matched in true Hollywood style by their agents in 1998.

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.
via: Getty ImagesOnly 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?

The couple wed in sunny Malibu in July of 2000.

The Aniston-Pitt privacy stance is perhaps the reason that there remains so much mystery around what the marriage was really like.
via: Getty ImagesIn an interview given by Aniston 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, Aniston divulged how the couple had purchased a $15 million property, liked to bond over music, and may or may not be potheads.

But a couple of years later, the cracks began to appear in the fairytale romance of Brad and Jen.
via: Getty ImagesTalking 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.."
All good things must come to an end eh?
via: Getty ImagesWe’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.
via: Getty ImagesIt's May 2004, and "happily" married Brad Pitt starts filming the assassin/spy flick alongside the single (and admittedly.. very beautiful) Angelina Jolie (it’s those darn cheekbones).
Anyway blah, blah, blah, 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...
via: Getty ImagesAnd 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...
via: Getty ImagesAnd 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...
via: Getty ImagesAniston publicly slammed Pitt and Jolie for their insensitivity following the break-up. We mean, fair play to Jen! She has every right to be upset after Jolie publicly discussed the building of feelings between herself and Pitt whilst filming Mr & Mrs Smith (which we all know was still during Jen and Brad’s marriage..).
In response to Jolie’s public comments about the blossoming of her and Pitt’s relationship, Aniston spoke to Vogue in 2008.
via: Getty ImagesHuffpost 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.
via: Getty ImagesBrad 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 ...
via: Getty ImagesBrad and Jen seem to have reconnected during these difficult times.
Because a few months ago at the SAG Awards ...
via: Getty ImagesThe backstage pictures snapped of Brad and Jen got the whole internet talking.
The pair were locked in an adorable private joke ...
via: Getty ImagesAnd then as Jen started to walk away, Brad pulled her back in for more lols.
And that's not all.
The cutest moment of the night? Brad Pitt made sure to catch Jennifer Aniston's #SAGAwards win backstage https://t.co/bfOF2M3wEe— The Hollywood Reporter (@The Hollywood Reporter)1579486035.0
And, needless to say, Twitter had a lot to say on the situation.

But even better than the pics from the night?
via: InstagramWell, it would have to be this shot from the morning after the night before.
That dress placement had everyone talking.
via: InstagramAnd it seemed the internet had one potential undressing partner in mind. Brad, of course!
We'd been eagerly awaiting acknowledgment from Brad or Jen.
via: Getty ImagesBut the two 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 ImagesReports 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...
via: Getty Images"Right now they just love and adore each other and have been much closer friends since their divorces."
But recently, "friends" might not be the label for them any more...
via: Getty ImagesAccording to Star Magazine, the pair have rekindled their relationship so much that they are spending quarantine together in Jen's Los Angeles mansion!
An insider revealed these secrets:
via: Getty Images"Brad and Jen have been spending most of their time together during their lockdown," they said. "The whole experience has brought them even closer. They both feel humbled and grateful for everything they have right now, especially each other."
While Brad is still in contact with his children, he has "minimal" contact with anyone else.
via: Getty ImagesObviously, due to safety precautions, Brad has decided to just stick with Jen for the entirety of this pandemic though both their reps have claimed that this rumor is false.
But, of course, it didn't take long for the uglier side of their split to rear its head once more.
At the time of their split, rumors were rife that Jen and Brad were back together.
Reports claimed they'd even turned to marriage counselling...
via: Getty ImagesBut all that changed on April 29 2005 when heartbreaking pictures of Pitt and Jolie surfaced of the pair on the beach in Kenya with her adopted son Maddox.
