"And then I did a movie called The Break-Up," Aniston continued.

"I just kinda leaned into the end. I just was like, 'You know what, guys? Let's make this a completely new chapter. Let's just end everything and start new.' It worked great."

The former pair shocked the world in 2005 when they announced their separation and then finalized their divorce that October.

Despite the heartbreaking split, Aniston and Pitt have remained close friends throughout the years.

At one point, fans speculated that the pair would reconcile, particularly after their cute red carpet moment at 2020 SAG Awards where Pitt was seen holding onto to his ex-wife – who looked equally thrilled to see him.

Alas, Aniston is currently single, and Pitt just got out of a intense divorce court battle with his other ex-wife, Angelina Jolie.
