It looks like it isn’t too late for Brad Pitt to say sorry. The father-of-six has turned over a new leaf since he and Angelina Jolie separated nearly one year ago — and now he’s righting his wrongs, starting with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. A source exclusively tells In Touch that the actor, 53, reached out to his former spouse, 48, to apologize, and the two are quickly reconnecting.
“He’s been determined to apologize for everything he put her through, and that’s exactly what he did,” the source tells In Touch exclusively. “It was the most intimate conversation Brad and Jen have ever had.” When he finally apologized, “Jen was overcome with emotion,” says the source. “All the hurt feelings and resentment she’d suppressed for years came flooding to the surface, and she broke down in tears.”
Needless to say, she accepted his apology — for everything, including his infamous affair with Angie on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which ended his marriage to the Friends star. The source adds, “He apologized to Jen for being an absentee husband, for being stoned and bored much of the time. He also made amends for leaving her for Angelina.”
While Jen still resents Angelina — and likely always will — a friend of the actress tells In Touch that Brad and Jen’s relationship is in a place they never thought they’d be in. The friend explains that it “opened the door to a whole new era of good feeling between exes.”
Brad isn’t satisfied yet, as the friend says he still thinks he and his ex-wife have some unresolved issues, but it’s clear that he’s determined to get there. And the two have already made great strides to get to a place they previously deemed impossible to reach. The friend gushes, “After Jen’s acceptance of Brad’s deeply moving apology, she and Brad have reached a level of closeness that they never thought possible.”
