Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston backstage at the SAG awardsBrad has been delivering award-worthy speeches this year. Last night, he once again cracked up the audience saying, “I’m going to add this to my Tinder profile. Thank you, my brothers, my sisters, this means so much—more than I can possibly fathom. I want you to know I watch everything, I watch you all, and the work has been mesmerizing, so I thank you. I want to thank my costars, Leo, Margot Robbie, Margot Robbie’s feet, Margaret Qualley’s feet, Dakota Fanning’s feet… seriously, Quentin has separated more women from their shoes than the TSA.”

He added, “Let’s be honest, it was a difficult part. Guy who gets high, takes his shirt off, and doesn’t get on with his wife? It was a big stretch.”

On the television side, Jennifer Aniston won for her portrayal of a morning show host on Apple Plus’ The Morning Show. Brad and Jennifer’s reunion backstage was instantly trending on social. There’s a viral image that has many rooting for the couple (see left).
