Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 50th birthday surrounded by everyone that has ever had an impact on her life, including exes Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux.
Theroux was one of the first to wish Aniston on social media and did so with a picture of Aniston holding a pair of bull horns above her head, showing off her muscled arms. He captioned the photo, “Happy Birthday to this fierce Woman. Fiercely loving. Fiercely kind. ….and fiercely funny”. Theroux’s wish comes just a year after he and Aniston announced their divorce. The couple got married after several years of being together but split up soon after.
Aniston’s Friends costar and best friend Courtney Cox also wished the actress with a sweet picture on social media, writing, “The world definitely got brighter the day this girl was born. Happy birthday, sweetheart! I Love you!”
Aniston threw herself a party in Los Angeles on Saturday for all the people that are important to her. Among the famous guest list was ex-husband Brad Pitt. He attended the party alongside George Clooney, Amal Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Ellen DeGeneres, Kate Hudson, Demi Moore, Courtney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow.
Pitt and Aniston divorced in 2005 but it seems that they have put the past behind them. A source told E!, “Someone extended the invitation to Brad to come to Jen’s party and he accepted. He wanted to support Jen and it was a momentous occasion. But that’s the extent of it. It was a social evening with a lot of people who have been a part of her life. They definitely aren’t dating or on that path. They are friendly, but that’s it.”
Another source told People, “Every single person who loves Jen attended. That included Brad. The party was a celebration of Jen’s life. Brad, for long, was a very important part of Jen’s life. She debated back and forth with friends if she should invite him.”
While the two are not very close now, Aniston has previously revealed that there are no hard feelings between the two. She said in 2015, “We’re not in daily communication. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. Nobody did anything wrong. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things [happen].”
Aniston’s ex John Mayer also attended.
