Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt came face to face with the actor’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston at the 2009 Academy Awards last night – the first time the trio attended the same event since Aniston and Pitt’s divorce in 2005.
Aniston, wearing a sequined Valentino dress, skipped the red carpet but presented the Best Animated Feature award alongside Jolie’s Kung Fu Panda co-star Jack Black. Black joked that all Pixar films win Oscars, and Aniston said, “I apologize Mr. Katzenberg [Jeffery Katzenberg, the co-founder of Dreamworks], I don’t know why we let him out of the house.”
The camera cut to Jolie and Pitt, who were sitting in the front row. The couple laughed and clapped throughout Aniston’s presentation. Aniston and her date, boyfriend John Mayer, sat only 12 seats away from Jolie and Pitt.
