Brad Pitt shocked the world when he showed up at his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston’s 50th birthday party held inside the Sunset Tower hotel in West Hollywood on Saturday evening.
And ever since fans have been wondering exactly what went on between the former Hollywood golden couple inside the splashy bash.
Entertainment Tonight claims the two ‘hugged and briefly talked,’ but the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor spent most of his time chatting up his Ocean’s 11 co-star George Clooney.
Together again: Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt ‘hugged’ at her 50th birthday party at the Sunset Tower hotel in West Hollywood on Saturday night, ET claimed. And they also talked briefly, said a source
The way they were: The two were married from 2000 to 2005; seen here in 2004
Brad, who is in the process of divorcing Angelina Jolie, ‘wanted to support’ Aniston because the former couple have ‘been friendly’ in recent years said the source.
‘Aniston put her ex-husband on her invite list weeks ago and Pitt was in town and happily chose to attend to help her celebrate the milestone birthday,’ the site alleged.
Though ‘they didn’t have much interaction at the event,’ he was seen hugging her.
It was added that Pitt ‘did not stay at the bash the entire night.’

‘He came to support her, spoke to other friends of his that were there and headed out,’ noted the insider.
Another source told ET that the actor was ‘having a great time.’
And he also talked with his Troy co-star Orlando Bloom.
‘Jen and Brad have remained friends and have spoken with each other quite a few times since they both became single,’ a source said. ‘They are friends and have supported each other through some tough times.
‘They’ve come so far since their marriage and plan to stay friends for life. There are truly no hard feelings between them… They both realize that anytime they cross paths people talk about a reunion. He came on his own and quietly entered the party. They had heavy security, kept a ban on social media, and hoped for the best.’

He was married to Jolie (with whom he raised six kids) and she was wed to Justin Theroux.
‘They have each other’s cell phone number and communicate from time to time,’ the source said at the time. ‘This is nothing new. Jen and [Brad] have remained friendly.’
