Brad Pitt Was Dodging Three Different Exes at the Golden Globes

Did you forget he dated Christina Applegate, too?!

If you've been on the internet in the last 12 hours, you probably know that literally all of Hollywood was hanging out together at the Golden Globes (opens in new tab) last night. That includes Brad Pitt (opens in new tab), who was nominated (and won (opens in new tab)!) for his work in Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood. The small issue, though, is that he attended the ceremony with a whopping three of his exes: Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Christina Applegate.

Now, anyone in Brad's shoes would be high-key stressed by this scenario. I mean, imagine having to dodge three different people in one four-hour span while also trying to get drunk and network with the rest of your colleagues. Do you think he hid out in the bathroom between presentations? Or did he and Leonardo DiCaprio do a body swap/Freaky Friday thing? 

I did notice he's wore dark sunglasses all night, and the only thing I can guess is that they're full-on blackout shades so he could just avoid any/all interactions.

Obviously, everyone was making a very big deal about Brad and Jen being in the same room. People want them to get back together. We know this. That's normal (ish?).

But let's not forget that Brad and Gwyneth also had their moment of matching hair.

As did he and Christina. The '80s energy in this picture good.

The funniest thing about this is that Jen and Brad reportedly didn't run into each other on the red carpet, and people still freaked out. Like, that was the news. We're all so damn thirsty for them to get back together that we (as in, the internet) are pissed if they don't coincidentally run into each other at an event with 600+ people. Everyone had to satisfy themselves with watching and analyzing Jennifer Aniston's face during Brad's acceptance speech (opens in new tab):

I mean, it's totally possible Brad and all his exes are friendly now. If that's the case, I applaud them all! But if that were me, I'd be looking over my shoulder so much I'd probably throw my neck out. Shivers!
