The great and the good of Hollywood turned out to mark a big occasion for Jennifer Aniston last night.
But nobody was expecting Brad Pitt to attend his ex-wife’s birthday party in Los Angeles.
The 55-year-old actor – who split from the former Friends star in 2005 after five years of marriage – was spotted making a casual entrance at the Sunset Tower Hotel, arriving alone in a black Escalade and quickly making his way inside in a bid to dodge photographers who were waiting outside.
He is reported to have been dating Charlize Theron for a couple of months.
Other guests at the party were said to include another of Brad’s former flames, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as Jennifer’s former boyfriend John Mayer.
Also in attendance to celebrate Jennifer turning 50 – her actual birthday is tomorrow, Monday 11th – were former Friends cast mates Courteney Cox and Reese Witherspoon, as well as Robert Downey Jr and George Clooney.
However, the photographers hoping the grab a glimpse of the A list stars were largely frustrated, with the famous faces not posing for pictures as they arrived or left the party.
It was previously claimed Jennifer and Brad had got back in contact following his 2016 split from Angelina Jolie.
However, a source told press in February of last year: “They aren’t in regular contact, beyond an occasional text back and forth to wish each other the best when there’s been a new project or big event.”
Jennifer – who split from Justin Theroux around the same time after two years of marriage – recently insisted she still regards her relationships with both her exes as “successful”.
She said told Elle magazine in December 2018: “I don’t feel a void. I really don’t.
“My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in personal opinion. And when they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness doesn’t exist within that arrangement anymore.
“Sure, there were bumps, and not every moment felt fantastic, obviously, but at the end of it, this is our one life and I would not stay in a situation out of fear.
“Fear of being alone. Fear of not being able to survive. To stay in a marriage based on fear feels like you’re doing your one life a disservice.”
She certainly wasn’t alone when she left last night’s party – the star was surrounded by pals.
It is believed she ducked out of her birthday bash at around 1am in the morning.
