Brad Pitt's mother Jane was said to be 'rooting' for her son and ex-wife Jennifer Aniston to re-marry after they gave everyone hope of a reunion following their SAG awards exchange.

According to recent reports, Jane was hoping he would reconcile with his first-wife Jennifer after he split from ex-wife Angelina Jolie. Brad and Ange split in 2016 after a 12-year relationship and two years of marriage.

Four years later and Brad and Jen had an unexpected but delightful run-in at the 26th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards back in January last year, and photographers snapped away as they chatted, looking overjoyed alongside each other. With Brad even grabbing Jennifer's hand in the best PDA we've seen from them in a long time!

And with the reunion footage having been broadcast globally, even Brad's mum is said to have heard about it.

National Enquirer recently reported that no one was more excited than her about this supposed reunion and that she even wanted the duo to get remarried. 

"She was rooting for them to get married again. She loved Jen and hated Angie. They were all rooting for a reboot,” the source disclosed.

Brad and Jen bumped into each other again just a month later at Guy Oseary's annual Oscars party, where Jen reportedly congratulated Brad on his win, though it's understood this interaction lacked the same flirty vibe as the initial reunion, sources at the party told Page Six.

But unlike the impending Friends reunion between Jen and her former co-stars Matt Le Blanc, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and Matthew Perry, Brad and Jen have not been in touch since and are not reuniting, according to Page Six reports.

Brad met Friends actress Jennifer Aniston in 1998 and married her in a private wedding ceremony in Malibu on July 29, 2000. In January 2005, they announced they had decided to separate and two months later, Jen filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
