Did Brad Pitt take a dig at Angelina Jolie in SAG awards acceptance speech? Watch Jennifer Aniston’s reaction
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s backstage chemistry was the talk of the town at the SAG awards, but did Pitt take a dig at Angelina Jolie in his acceptance speech?Updated: Jan 20, 2020 19:33 IST
Brad Pitt won the SAG award for best supporting actor and in his acceptance speech made a joke about playing a character ‘who doesn’t get along with his wife’. Pitt said sarcastically while accepting the award, for his performance in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, “Let’s be honest. It was a difficult part, a guy who takes his shirt off, gets high and doesn’t get on with his wife. It was a big stretch, big.”
Pitt’s ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, was caught on camera reacting to the speech, clapping along with the rest of the A-listers at the event.

“Wow, is it me or Did Brad Pitt just threw Angelina Jolie under the bus for him not getting along with her and blaming her for his unfortunate relationships?” one person asked on Twitter. Several others shared GIFs in reaction to Pitt’s speech.
Pitt continued on a more serious not, “Each of us in this room, you know, we know pain, we know loneliness - we bring that to the screen. We know moments of grace, we’ve had moments of wisdom - we bring that to the screen. We’ve all had a laugh at our ridiculousness and we know funny and we bring that to the screen and God damn, I think that’s a worthy endeavour.”
Aniston and Pitt were spotted together backstage, after she won a SAG for her performance in Apple TV + series, The Morning Show. Pitt made sure to catch every second of her acceptance speech, as seen in a video.
