Jen and Brad, reunited? Newsroom commenters can dream

“Wouldn’t it just be a kick in the pants if she got back together with Brad?” “Now let the ‘she’s dating Brad’ rumors begin.” Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are single at the same time, and that has Newsroom readers as well as Twitter users itching for a reunion.

Jennifer Aniston and her husband, Justin Theroux, just announced their surprising separation after seven years together and less than three years of marriage. In a statement, they said their decision to end their marriage “was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year.” It didn’t take very long for readers to suggest: “Brad is available they ought to give it another try.”

The twitterverse has strong feelings too (and does a lot of wishful thinking). One user said, “Jen is single. Brad is single. Admit it … You’re wondering.”

Aniston was previously married to Pitt from 2000 to 2005. Pitt and Angelina Jolie called it quits in 2016.
