Jennifer Aniston pokes fun at divorce to Brad Pitt on final Ellen DeGeneres show

Jennifer Aniston has made a joke about her marriage to Brad Pitt on the final episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The Friends star, 53, returned to the show, which has been running for 19 years, after being the show's very first guest back in 2003.

But one of the biggest talking points from her chat with Ellen, 64, Jennifer spoke about how she dealt with Friends ending, and joked that she "leaned into" ending things, including her marriage to Brad, 58.

She said: “I got a divorce and went into therapy. Oh, and then I did a movie called The Break-Up. I just kinda leaned into the end.

“I just was like, ‘you know what guys, let’s just make this a completely new chapter.’”

Ellen then responded, “Let’s end everything,” followed by Jennifer, who quipped: “Let’s just end everything and then start new.”

Brad and Jennifer first had a casual meeting after being introduced through their managers in 1994, but didn't go on their first date for another four years.

After the pair got together, the A-listers became one of the most beloved showbiz couples of all time, with people around the world heavily invested in their relationship.


But it was not meant to be, with Jennifer divorcing Brad after five years of marriage in 2005 – a year after Friends ended. Their marriage ended around the same time where Brad met Angeline Jolie on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith.

Despite their turbulent history, Jennifer has insisted that she and Brad are still friends, and people have speculated the pair have reconciled in recent years.

Jennifer told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM show last year, “Brad and I are buddies. We’re friends…And we speak.”

The Friends star was the perfect choice to close out the talk show, after being its very first guest in 2003. She even closed out the recent interview by circling back to the gift she gave Ellen on the first episode – a "welcome" mat.

But instead of a welcome mat, she gave Ellen one reading "Thanks for the memories."

The Ellen DeGeneres Show won 12 Daytime Emmys for best talk show in its 19-year run, more than any other talk show in history.


But the show has come to an end after Ellen received a number of allegations that the show was a "toxic workplace", with former staff on the show claiming they were bullied when working there, with one viral tweet claiming Ellen herself was "notoriously one of the meanest people alive."

Ellen has apologised publicly when addressing the allegations, admitting that "things happened here that never should have happened."

"I take this very seriously and I want to say I'm so sorry to the people it affected," she said.

The final episode of The Ellen DeGeneres show aired on May 26, 2022.
