Pictures of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reuniting at the SAG Awards broke the Internet and now the photographer, who captured the iconic moment, has revealed what happened before those pictures were taken.
Both, Brad and Jennifer, won awards at the SAG Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles. Brad won Best Supporting Actor for his role in the Quentin Tarantino while Jennifer won the Best Actress gong for The Morning Show at the event.
The reunion of the pair, who divorced in 2005, was captured by photographer Emma McIntyre who works for Getty Images.
Emma revealed that the moment was very joyful and the former couple was very happy seeing each other.
Emma also revealed that it was Brad who called out “Aniston!” to congratulate her. Jennifer then turned around and they hugged and congratulated each other.
Emma told People: “The moments are really joyful and there are often encounters between winners in this area. I try and capture as many of these celebratory moments as I can… It’s always fun to capture spontaneous run-ins between actors.”
“It was a moment of two accomplished people at the top of their game, acknowledging each other’s successes and genuinely seeming happy to see one another.
The moment was really touching and you could sense the respect between two people who have known each other 20 plus years and are both outstanding in their field.”
She said there were two more photographers who were trying to take the couple’s picture but she was lucky to get some amazing shots.
She said: “I positioned myself to the side of where Brad and Jennifer were standing, so their reaction was more angled to me meaning I could capture their interaction and expressions.”
The Internet went gaga over the pictures of the couple reuniting after years after the pictures were posted online.
Jennifer was even seen laughing when Brad was giving his acceptance speech as he joked about his love life and being on Tinder.
