Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt will seemingly always be linked and it has been reported that their friendship will be everlasting. Despite there being an almost 15 years gap between the former married couple seeing each other, since they reunited last year, they have found that they still have platonic feelings for each other. Hollywood legend Brad, 56, had also been getting closer to his ex-Angelina Jolie during the lockdown period, with him being pictured arriving at her Los Angeles home on a few occasions.

This has been tested in recent weeks though after Angelina looked to delay court proceedings for their custody trial by claiming that the presiding judge was linked to Brad and would not be unbiased with his thinking. That act has hardened Brad's stance against Angelina and he is reportedly ready to battle her to the end to ensure he gets a good deal for him and his six children.

Brad and 51-year-old Jen still capture the imagination of their fans though and they were in a frenzy last week as the pair appeared together on screen for the first time in nearly 20 years for a live charity all-star table reading of hit ’80s movie comedy, Fast Times At Ridgemont High.

Insiders have now said that Jen is once again “closer than ever” to Brad despite him trying to reconcile with Ange for daughter Shiloh’s 14th birthday, as well as twins Knox and Vivienne’s 12th birthday celebrations in the summer. With his relationship with Angelina once again heading on a downward slope, it has been reported that was "really touched" when Jen got in touch with him again as he didn't know if he would hear from her again.

The source continued: "She knows him better than most and knows how stressed and upset he’d have been by the bombshell. "They’ve been spending time together amid Jen’s effort to help lift his spirits and be a source of comfort when he’s admittedly feeling defeated and hopeless about Ange’s shock move."

The reason why they will always be close has been explained by the source, who said: "They have an unbreakable bond of friendship and Jen will always be there for him. "It doesn’t take much for them to be closer than ever again and they were stoked to be working together.”
