Once upon a time, Aniston and Pitt were the “It” couple in Hollywood.
The pair was loved by fans all over the world for they represented glamour and passion – and they were both easy on the eyes.
However, in 2005, it was over after reports surfaced that Pitt had fallen in love with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie.
Poor Aniston, she was left humiliated and heartbroken after the man of her dreams walked away.
What followed were years of nasty rumors claiming that she was too controlling and did not want to have children which is why Pitt left her.
Fast forward to the fall of 2016, following an altercation with their teenage son, Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt, the mother sided with her child and filed for divorce.
After the split, Pitt, who was battling alcoholism, decided to clean up his life and allegedly reached out to some of the people he hurt. One of them being Aniston.
According to reports, it was a very emotional apology, and Aniston’s reaction was one for the books.
A source told Life and Style: “He has been determined to apologize for everything he put her through, and that is exactly what he did. It was the most intimate conversation Brad and Jen have ever had. When he finally apologized, Jen was overcome with emotion. All the hurt feelings and resentment she’d suppressed for years came flooding to the surface, and she broke down in tears.”
The person said Pitt apologized for all the hurt and pain he caused her, and she accepted.
The source adds that Aniston broke down in tears hearing the words she waited so many years to hear.
The chatty insider said: “He apologized to Jen for being an absentee husband, for being stoned and bored much of the time. He also made amends for leaving her for Angelina.”
The family friend went on to say: “After Jen’s acceptance of Brad’s deeply moving apology, she and Brad have reached a level of closeness that they never thought possible.”
The pal concluded by saying that the moment “opened the door to a whole new era of good feeling between exes.”
