Jennifer Aniston's private 50th birthday bash was studded with stars, but it was one surprise guest who left tongues wagging — none other than her ex, Brad Pitt!
MEGA snapped an image of Brad from behind as he entered the soirée at the Sunset Tower Hotel in L.A. People magazine confirms Pitt, 55, showed up with long, slicked-back hair under a baseball cap.
A source revealed to People, “Brad, for long, was a very important part of Jen’s life. She debated back and forth with friends if she should invite him. She was very happy that he showed up. Many of his close friends were at the party too.”
Jen, however, “didn’t really pay any special attention to Brad... They hugged and chatted for a bit, but Jen was busy making sure all of her other guests had an amazing time."
The magazine had reported earlier that Brad and Jen have been friendly, but not especially close, exes for some time, but are "over each other" romantically.
Other guests included Gwyneth Paltrow (another Pitt ex), John Mayer (another Aniston ex), Katy Perry (Mayer's ex) & Orlando Bloom, Courteney Cox, David Arquette (Courtney's ex), Lisa Kudrow, Barbra Streisand, George & Amal Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Demi Moore, Laura Dern, Kate Hudson, Keith Richards, Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Downey Jr. and many more.
Hudson shared pics with Jen and Gwyneth on Instagram. She wrote, "Love these ladies 💕Celebrated this beauty last night ✨Happy Bday JA! We all love you sooo!"
Paltrow wished Jen a happy birthday with a party pic, writing, "Happy birthday (last night and tomorrow) to #jenniferaniston our ray of sunshine, example of perpetual goodness. We love you so much and you make 50 LOOK 🔥"
Oh, to have been an ex-fly on the wall!
Here's hoping Aniston had a wonderful time on her big night.
