It’s been more than a decade since Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt went their separate ways, but the iconic actress remains fond of her ex-husband. Aniston recently opened up about the “Fight Club” actor.
Ahead of the premiere of “Friends: The Reunion” tomorrow, Aniston sat down with her female castmates, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox, as they reminisced about their time on the original hit show.
'WONDERFUL' BRAD PITT
While discussing with Kit Hoover of Access Hollywood, the ladies were asked to name their favorite guest on the sitcom after the guys ― Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer ― had selected Sean Penn as their favorite.
As the women began calling out names like Paul Rudd, Tom Selleck, Reese Witherspoon, Ben Stiller, and Alec Baldwin, Aniston chipped in her ex-lover’s name, saying, “Mr. Pitt was wonderful.”
Kudrow agreed with her sentiment, calling him “fantastic.” Pitt made a guest appearance on the NBC sitcom during a season 8 episode titled “The One with the Rumor.” His character hated Aniston’s character Rachel Green.
