Aniston and Pitt’s history
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt started dating in 1998. Their agents set them up on a date. The Friends alum admitted that for her, it was love at first sight. She knew the very moment she saw Pitt on that night that he was the one.
“We both [knew] on our first date. It was weird … That was a really easy evening,” Aniston later recalled, adding that she couldn’t imagine being with “any other human being.”
Meanwhile, Pitt had nothing praises for Aniston, too. He gushed about her in one interview in 1999.
“Finding Jennifer is simply the best thing that has ever happened to me,” Pitt told OK!, “She’s my angel, my life.”
Pitt and Aniston’s friendship throughout the years

According to sources, when the Ad Astra actor had problems with his marriage with Jolie, Aniston was there for him. The outlet claimed that their friendship turned romantic once again.
Pitt was among Aniston’s celebrity guests when she celebrated her 50th birthday in 2019. They also made a sweet encounter at the SAG Awards in January.

However, one still needs to take the reports about them dating again with a grain of salt. Aniston and Pitt’s reps both said that they are just friends and are not back together.
