–Jennifer Aniston threw a 50th birthday bash this weekend and the guest list was insane (George, Amal, Gwyneth, Reese, Sandra, Kate, Orlando, Katy, Demi, RDJ, Courteney, Ellen, etc.) but the guest that everyone’s buzzing about today is her ex-hubby Brad Pitt. Not surprisingly, people from her camp are already shooting down talk of a reconciliation, pointing out that they only chatted briefly and “they definitely aren’t dating or on that path. They are friendly, but that’s it.”
