Brad Pitt won a SAG Award on Sunday night for his performance in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, giving a speech so full of jokes that you might be forgiven for thinking he was auditioning for Saturday Night Live. “I’m going to add this to my Tinder profile,” he quipped. “Thank you, my brothers, my sisters, this means so much—more than I can possibly fathom.”

All eyes were on the actor as he concluded the speech with a wry, telling comparison between himself and his character, stuntman Cliff Booth: “Let’s be honest, it was a difficult part,” he said. “The guy who gets high, takes his shirt off, and doesn’t get on with his wife. It’s a big stretch.” Notably, Pitt’s ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, was in the crowd, and the camera panned to her as Pitt made the joke. Far from seeming upset, Aniston smiled and applauded.

Then, Pitt had the opportunity to reciprocate as he watched The Morning Show star Aniston accept the SAG award for an outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series.

As if that weren’t enough for nostalgic fans to take in, a photographer caught a tender exchange between the two, with Pitt holding Aniston’s hand as they caught up:

Twitter duly erupted, with some hoping for a reunion, and others simply being overwhelmed by memories of a simpler time:

For those with long memories, the moment might have brought back this moment at the 2002 Golden Globes, when Pitt and Aniston were still a couple:
