Pitt was backstage after accepting the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role trophy for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — a role he joked involved playing a guy who "gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn't get on with his wife; a big stretch." He also joked about adding the award to his Tinder profile.
While he was still backstage, Aniston won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in The Morning Show. The Hollywood Reporter posted a video that showed Pitt adoringly watching her speech on a TV screen, and it's gone totally viral.
Rumours about Aniston and Pitt rekindling a romance have been rampant since they ended marriages to Justin Theroux and Angelina Jolie, respectively. Pitt maintained that they were good friends on the Golden Globes red carpet. They were previously married from 2000 to 2005.
Of course, their relationship is their own business, but that hasn't stopped Twitter from swooning over the possibility of them getting back together.
See some of the reactions below. Then can we please leave them alone?

Me: Brad left Jen in the most horrible and humiliating way and it was easily the most memorably tragic celebrity break-up of my youth. She deserves better.— Jamie Jirak (@JamieCinematics) January 20, 2020
