Fans who’ve been rooting for Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston ever since their 2005 split may actually have cause for hope! Years later, Brad regrets leaving the Friends star for his now-ex Angelina Jolie, a source told In Touch exclusively.

Following his 2016 separation from Angie, Brad sobered up and sought therapy. And now, he’s “in touch with emotions and his true self like never before,” the source says.

And it seems like this self-awareness comes with some great realisations. “He has come to realise that leaving Jen for Angelina was one of the biggest mistakes of his life,” the source adds. “And while he’s not in love with Jen, he realises how much he does love her. Brad keeps telling friends that he’s seeing everything more clearly.”

However, these realisations are obviously far too late. Jennifer has been married to Wanderlust co-star Justin Theroux for two years now.

And while Brad would “never dream of” ruining his ex’s new marriage, he “would take a second chance at love with Jen in a heartbeat.”

If they can’t be romantic partners, though, the War Machine star wants Jen to be his partner in other pursuits, In Touch further reported.

Brad Pitt “much happier” following split from Angelina Jolie

“They worked well together” when they formed the production company Plan B in 2001, an insider close to Brad told In Touch. “He wants Jen involved again as he produces and develops more and more high-quality film and cable TV products.”

That kind of professional partnership could pay off for Jen, too, since the insider states she wants in on “prestige projects” under his production banner. “She’d be beyond thrilled to win an Academy Award for Best Actress — something that’s evaded both her and Angelina.”

“He still considers Jen the love of his life,” the source concluded.

    I don’t care what everyone else thinks, I was never a Brad and Jennifer. I love Brad and Angelina together and was hoping they would get back together. But for him to now be saying he regrets leaving Jennifer for Angelina I think he’s full of it to say something like that after all this time and 3 kids give me a break. And for everyone to thinks that means Brad and Jennifer will get back together what about her marriage, I guess no one respect the fact that she’s married. Or the fact that Brad cheated on her and publicly left her for another woman. I don’t want Brad and Jennifer to get back together.Recommend

    Brad unceremoniously dumped Aniston over 12 years ago, actually longer considering they were not even livng together when Brad and Angie worked together. The last thing Brad Pitt needs is an aging has been who called his children racist names and has a penchant for drugs and alcohol. Brad knew when he dumped Aniston he was throwing out “garbage”.Recommend

    At this stage Brad needs a good Asian wife, someone like Chopra, who seems to be the type of Indian woman who constantly needs self-validation from whites.Recommend

    this is ridiculous garbage!Brad would never say that! That is like saying he regrets his 6 children,3 of them his bio children from Angie!. A blind man can see that Brad loved and still loves Angie. she is the mother of his children! this is absolute tabloid trash!Recommend
